Well here it is almost July!! How in the world did that happen? Time marches right on even when we are not ready for it to happen!
Please remember that the Bushnell Recreation Center is available as a “Cooling Station” in the event of heat advisory’s in our area. Please be that good neighbor during these times and check on the elderly and those with health concerns to make sure they are alright. And don’t forget about our 4-legged friends! They need to be in shade and water available always!
Our Community has some exciting events coming up and I hope you can attend some if not all of them!
· On June 30th, there is a Family Fun Day and Car Raffle scheduled in the East Park! This event is being held to help raise funds for the Reid Brewer Splash Park!

On Monday and Tuesday of this week, Vaughan and Bushnell will be moving in some of the equipment from the company they have merged with – Dasco, Inc. Davis Street will be temporarily closed during some of this move. They will also be moving out a press from one of the Norforge buildings. What a great way to close out June – lots of exciting movement upward in our Community!!
The bridge on Route 9 one mile west of Bushnell over the north branch of the Lamoine River will be closed for repairs starting July 2 through November 1. The detour route will be Waco Road. Please keep this in mind during your travels. These detours can be frustrating at times, but we are so thankful that the bridge will be repaired for our traveling safety!
I know that it is early – but start thinking about the Fall Festival!! Do you or a friend or family member have anything you want to enter in the Arts and Crafts Show? We would love to see what you have been up to all year – and you may be the best of the best!! What about an entry into the Parade? Are you a member of a group or organization and want to be involved? Are you a baker? The Pie and Cake Auction could really benefit from your talents! Keep the Festival in mind and get involved in our Community!
