This year’s Habitat tag sale will be at Salisbury School

cynthiah@lakevillejournal.com

This is not a joke or an exaggeration: People are already wandering into Salisbury and asking when the Habitat for Humanity tag sale is going to be held. A few people who are really on top of it have even wandered (correctly) into the Salisbury School’s domed tennis court to get a sneak peek at some of the goods that will be on sale starting this weekend.

A towering inferno of seafood, corn

The sequence of a successful clambake:

Cover a bed of hot coals and chunks of limestone, first with corn husks, then with seaweed. Then add lobsters in wooden crates, corn and potatoes in burlap sacks and clams in mesh bags. Cover the entire thing with heavy tarps. Drink beer (or other beverage) and wait.

With minor variations, that is what the Jane Lloyd Fund has done on a Saturday afternoon in late July for the past 12 years.

Ministering to soles and souls on the AT

SALISBURY — The idea was that Allison Huggins, a hiker on the Appalachian Trail, would cross the Amesville bridge at about 1:30 p.m. on Sunday, July 23, and be greeted by her friends from the Connecticut Episcopal Church with a service and picnic at the First Light boat launch and park on the Housatonic River.
Unhappily, Huggins was derailed somewhat with foot problems, so she arrived by car.

Al Ghanem family is welcomed

SALISBURY — The Salisbury Congregational Church hosted a dinner on Friday, July 21, to officially welcome the Al Ghanem family into the community. 
The family, who moved from Aleppo, Syria, to Salisbury in August 2016, have been in the process of transitioning into American life and, thanks to the community, have been doing very well.
When they first arrived in the U.S., the only word of English they knew was “Hartford,” because Mahmoud Al Ghanem wanted to know the capital of the state they were going to be living in.

SALISBURY — An ailing young eagle sought shelter at a home in the Amesville section of Salisbury last week, and eventually ended up in the care of the Audubon Center in Sharon. 
On Wednesday morning,  July 19, John Sprague got out of bed, looked out his window and saw something sitting on a chair in his yard. The thing turned out to be a large bird, which hung around the house all day, sometimes disappearing into the nearby woods but then always reappearing.
