Mike’s is now Country Farms Market

15 years ago

Market changes hands
Mike’s Family Market, owned by Mike Cyr, has changed hands. It was recently purchased by Mark Kelly, of Mapleton, and is now the Country Farms Market. We’ll miss Mike as he was here for six years. We wish the new owner a prosperous business and welcome him to our community.

  Kiwanis Club

The Easton Kawinis Club held their meeting of the month on March 3, with seven members present.  They enjoyed making their own sandwiches with the makings and dessert brought by Mike Cyr. The meeting was opened by President Mike Allen, with the salute to the flag and prayer by Harold Clark.  Treasurer Loris Allen gave her report, stating that the coffer is getting a little low.
The first thing brought up was the Easton Winter Carnival where the Club will be doing hotdogs and rolls with drinks and sweets. There will be a donation jar put out and all donations will go back to the Recreation Department.
It was reported that next Tuesday evening, March 10, the Presque Isle Kawinis Club will be holding a group meeting of all the local Kawanis clubs at the Malcolm Science Center, with pizza for supper. It was voted that the Easton Club would pay for their members’ suppers.
It was decided by those gathered there that on the next meeting on Tuesday, March 17, they would join with the Caribou Kiwanis at the Jade Palace. The cost would be $6. Mike suggested that they might carpool and to call Loris or Mike if you want to go.
Before closing the meeting, Mike asked if some more members could turn out to help with the cooking of the hotdogs on Saturday as he could not be there because of work. Those present were: Loris and Mike Allen, Bernard Hussey, Eldora and Clair Carter, Mike Cyr and Harold Clark.
Visits and moves
John and Nina Trask have recently returned home from Orlando, Fla., and a visit with their daughter, Norma Jean, and her husband, Peter, and their son, Jason. Visiting from Jacksonville was their granddaughter, Kristi, with her two sons, Joshua and Matthew. Norma Jean is teaching the Technically Advanced Aircraft Instrumentation Systerm to the Federal Aviation Administration operations inspectors and will be teaching an aircraft safety course at Embry Riddle Air University in the next semester. Jason is in his third year at the University of Central Florida and in pre-med. During a trip to Sarasota, they were able to have dinner with Peter’s father and mother from Marco Island, Fla.
Afternoon callers on Clair and Eldora Carter a few days ago were good friends Kerry and Connie Bartlett, of Oakfield. Kerry spent many hours working with Eldora’s father on his cattle farm when he was a young man.
Bud and Sally Budreau recently returned from Bangor where they visited his sister, Ethel Conners, who has been at Eastern Maine Medical Center for two weeks with a broken hip. She had a partial replacement and is doing fine and is probably back in her apartment by now.
Bernard Hussey has moved once more, this time to the West Ridge Manor apartment vacated by Nancy Tracy. He had been living in the United Methodist parsonage since his home was destroyed by fire.
Kert Richardson, the son of Keith and Esther Richardson, and grandson of Regina Thomas and Rena and the late Clarence Richardson, all of Easton, has been made a deacon in his church in Rochester, N.Y.
Our sympathy goes out to the family of 77-year-old Robert “Bob” Stickney, of Easton, who passed away on March 2 at The Aroostook Medical Center. Bob haf fought Parkinson’s disease for a long time. He was the son of Jean and Frank Stickney and lived in Easton all of his life, except when he served during the Korean War in the U.S. Army. He graduated from Easton High School in the class of 1949 and after returning from his tour of duty he worked at Vahlsings and then worked for McCain Foods in Easton, where he retired as their head electrician years later. He worked at many jobs, inlcuding wiring local homes for families in the area. He loved his family, enjoyed music and will be missed by friends at Camper’s Paradise in Westfield. Bob leaves: his loving wife, Evelyn, of Easton; his son Michael and partner, Thom, of Surry; and special nieces Debby, Heidi, Hillary and Haley. He will be sadly missed by his mother, Jean Stickney, of Easton, and his sisters, Audrey Lawrence of Mars Hill and Glenda Hersey of Levant, and his brother, George, of Easton. He was predeceased by his father, Frank, and a sister, Mary Sharpe. Calling hours were on Saturday, March 7, at Duncan Graves Funeral Home, with the funeral service the next day with the Rev. Larry Palmer officiating. Interment will be in Estes Park Cemetery, Easton, in the spring.  Those who wish to remember Bob may do so by sending donations to: Evelyn Stickney, P.O. Box 181, Easton, ME 04740, to establish a scholarship in his name at the Easton Jr./Sr. High School.
