Autumn is happening quickly among our Kingdom maples!  Every day there is more color - some brilliant reds and tinges of yellow that seem to predict a very nice  foliage season coming up.  And just about on cue, too.  Fall Foliage Week begins next Monday, Sept. 26, and runs through October 2, but that doesn't mean the color display OR the entertainment will be finished.  There will be a lot going on for weeks to come, and unless we get high winds, the foliage should last a while, too.  Then there's our second "foliage" season when the oaks and tamaracks are featured.  We often plan our trip to the Maine Coast about that time, and it's usually lovely through the mountains and at the shore.

This weekend don't forget the chicken pie supper at North Danville.
 You still have time to reserve delivered take-outs if you do it today.

Fred and I are saddened to learn of the death of young Alex Paduch yesterday in an automobile accident.  Alex was a senior at Lyndon State College and we met him last spring when he interviewed us for Channel 7 about the Ice-Out Contest.  We have met many very nice young people through these interviews, and each has brought something slightly different to the process of keeping our contest alive locally.  Alex impressed both of us as an exceptional personality and was very much the professional, completely poised and at ease as he handled both the camera and the questions.  We are so very sorry the life of this young man with such potential has been snuffed out.  Our thoughts are very much with his classmates at LSC and especially his family.
