School Association meeting May 26

The St. George School Association will meet as usual at the Odd Fellow’s Hall in Tenants Harbor on Saturday, May 26th at 4pm. $15 plus $5 dues. Members of the present 8th grade attend free.

Mary has agreed to cater the banquet so we can expect the same great food.  Volunteers are needed to set up the tables during the day and perhaps help carry the food into the hall.

Although no election of officers was held at the 2017 meeting, a young man with illustrious forbearers in St. George has agreed to guide and direct our association for the upcoming year.  He has generously donated 10 one-ounce pieces of silver to be raffled off as door prizes.  If you ever attended school in St. George we hope you will attend.

This year we are breaking new ground because it will be the first time since Alfred Hocking and others started the association back around 1939 that we have held this banquet without any officers or anyone in charge of putting it on. You will see it rise up between two lobster boats in Tenants Harbor all by itself, somewhat like Venus on the Half Shell.

Because to date only one person has agreed to be in charge for the upcoming year, it will be one of the very few organizations in Maine in which there is no infighting, quibbling or backbiting among the membership.

Any complaints about the food, decor or people present will be seen as a move to seize and consolidate power from our soon-to-be-elected president, and the guilty party will have automatically elected himself/herself vice-president of the association for the upcoming year.

Please direct questions or suggestions to thehumblefarmer@gmail.com.

We look forward to seeing you on Saturday, May 26th. —Robert Skoglund, 1953.
