Page 6 THE QUODDY TIDES 23 Mareh,l 00l-a ble 00l-alk,. by Kathleen White The weatherman always has surprises in store for us and we certainly got one this week. tfope this wanning trend will continue for a little while at least. Blood pressure day was the 20th and our attendant in charge was Marion (ook. On March 6 we really had a super-dup- er volunteer dinner, with an abundance of people and delicious food. Our cook, Terry Mealey cooked the meal and I have been asked to put the following an- nouncement in the paper, and I shall quote verbatim as it was given to me. "Good Evening: It gives me great pleas- ure to welcome you to our Annual Vol- unteer's dinner, in their honor. From those who serve the tables and decorate them, play the piano, and singers to the Kitchen Band; those who say the bless- ings, the drivers of the home delivered meals, our news reporter, and those who assist in our fund raising projects, and everyone who contributed to the success of our meals program in any way, I thank you for making this Center the best in Maine, and probably the Nation". Those who served the tables were Shirley Bassett, lnez Kierstead and Patti Craig. The Center was closed March 14 due to inclement weather. However, the fol- lowing day quite a few managed to get in to dinner. March 16 we celebrated St. Patrick's Day and opened the program with Jim Jollotta playing a piano solo. We had readings by Winnie McConnell, Evelyn MacDonald, Jane Knowlton and Kath- leen White, all pertaining to Ireland and- the Shamrock. The walls were decorated with figures and bits and pieces of Ire- land. Winnie McConnell had decorations on the tables of shamrocks and bows stuck in styrofoam. We also had a delic- ious cake, contributed by Susan Brown of Dennysville, decorated with "Snoopy" the dog, of the cartoon "Peanuts"-it looked so real. The cake was given in memory of Susan's father, Johnny Craig. The ice cream was provided by Ruth Na- dean. Louise Adams made crocheted shamrocks for the volunteers to wear. Louise Adams is back in harness again after visiting her daughter in Florida and Waldo Berry's son, Dale from Yarmouth, R.I. came to eat with us. Millie Ricker's husband "Dar" was also in to see us. Ivan Wentworth has been coming to meals of late. Jim Follis is in the hospital and word has it that he is better. We will be having our March birthday party on the 27th. Ms. Marina E. Thibeau will also be here on the 27th. The prizes were won by Alice Green, Helen Boone, Mabel Scott, John Smith, Joe Kendall, Vera Parker, Walter Towns- end and Clarence Townsend. ROLLING BACK THE YEARS F R 0 M T H E 1".4 S TPOR T Stf.VTLVFJ MARCH 23, 1904 LOCAL NEWS Shortly' after 1 AM on Monday last, earthquake shocks were felt in this city and surrounding towns: the first shock being of considerable severity', the second, and as some claim, third which followed in quick succession, being of a much milder nature. Various reports of danage done are prevalent, and in most cases probably exaggerated: but it has been ascertained for a fact that bricks were thrown from several chimneys about the city, and pic- tures and bric-a-brac shaken from the walls and shelves in several houses. Among the surrounding islands the first shock is said to have been even more severe than at this place, throwing down chimneys and shaking stove pipes from their positions. Many residents were greatly terrorized by the unusual occur- rence. Report also has it that a great bril- liancy illuminated the eastern and west- ern horizons during the visitation, and that the wind, which had been blowing fiercely for hours, completely subsided before the coming on of the shock, be- ginning again after it was over. by Susan Esposito MARCH 25, 1914 LOCAL NEWS Eastport receivel last week a new addi- tion to the police force in the person of a 40-pound English Bull police dog, which will be used for night duty with the two officers in making their rounds. The dog was a present to Marshal Wilson from a friend who is a member of the Boston police force and is a very intelhgent ani- mal, having been trained to perform the usual duties of a police dog.

Eighty percent of all cancer cases are tied to the way people live their lives. For example, the foods they eat, the work they do, and whether they smoke all affect the likelihood of getting cancer.
