Home Recovering
Pauline McHatten recently had brain tumor surgery at Maine Medical Center in Portland. According to her mother, Sandra, everything went well and was deemed successful. Pauline and her two-month-old “miracle baby,” Gloria, are home and doing fine. Those that are close to the family call Gloria the “miracle baby” because Pauline’s tumor was detected when she discovered she was pregnant. In spite of her condition, Pauline carried her baby to term and both are doing great! Pauline and her family would like to thank friends and community members for their love, support and prayers during her health crisis.
Show your appreciation
Friday, Oct. 23 marks Bus Driver Appreciation Day. For those that have children riding a bus to and from school, take a moment to say a special, heartfelt “thank you” to your child’s bus driver. They have a very difficult daily job, one of which, most of us would not trade them for! (Not even for one day).
