Grab the kids (13 and under) and come join the Baileyville Police Department this Saturday evening, June 24th, at 6:00 pm for a scavenger hunt with a twist. Instead of finding things you will have to find places around town to get your next clue. For instance if the clue read,
“Half a circle comes out of the ground where Manza’s meatballs were all around. Now you can sew or just watch the traffic flow but you had better be quick and you need to go.”
Where would you go? That’s right, out to Peggy’s on Rt.1 and there you would find your next clue and so on. The goal here is to teach a little bit about the history of this town and some folks who lived here. You will also get a little exercise because everybody will be walking around to make it fair. You also will have some fun (I hope).
The first team, individual or family that finds all of the clues around town will be treated to a large pizza and 4 sodas at Linda’s. There will also be prizes for folks that put the time in. To figure out the clues you will probably need a longtime resident of the town or Granddad or Grandma on speed dial. As always this is a stay and play event, if you bring your child you will need to stay with them. Please feel free to share. Who’s in? ... See MoreSee Less
I was coming home from a meeting today and saw a car pulled to the side of the road with its 4 way flashers on. I slowed down and saw a woman pick up a turtle and carry it up a woods road that it was coming out of. I swear I saw a little cartoon bubble over the turtles head. It said, "Thanks for the help lady it took me all morning to get to the edge of that road I was trying to cross. You're going the wrong way.....SHIT!!!" ... See MoreSee Less
A great mutual aid response today for a fire at a residence on the Houlton Rd. The only person in the home saw smoke coming in around his bedroom door and instead of opening the bedroom door to investigate made a very wise decision to exit through his bedroom window. When I arrived the smoke was very dense and I am thankful he made the choice he did. I do not know what the family needs at this time but I will let you know when I hear something. Thank you to the Calais FD, the Princeton FD, Downeast EMS, Maine Forest Service and our own crew here from Baileyville. ... See MoreSee Less
Here is one of the stories you don't normally hear about. One of our folks here in Woodland lost her husband the night before last. Some of her friends suggested she join our wellness check program so she called the office this morning. Sgt. Andrew Seavey took the call and went to her home where she was born and has lived in for the past 84 years. Sgt. Seavey spent quite a bit of time with her today and was very kind and caring and free with his hugs. We watch over our own here and have been doing it for as long as I can remember. Thank you Andrew for being in the right spot at the right time and being the shoulder to cry on. She may not remember the words you said but she will remember how you made her feel today. Well done Sarge. ... See MoreSee Less
