A Cautionary Tale from Bud:
A few  weeks ago Bud had Irving Oil clean his oil burner. The first technician came at 8am. He found a problem with a very high CO2 count and the flame was behaving erratically. At some point he called in a technician with 15 years experience. By 7:30 when he was unable to find the cause of the problem he said that in good conscience the only thing he could do was shut down the boiler and come back the next day. He asked Bud to do two things, call his chimney sweep and buy 3 CO2 detectors. They left at 7:30pm. The chimney sweep found that the chimney was clean. They called in a third person, the boss from the Rochester office. It took him an hour and a half to find out that the wrong part had been used. Bud and Pat were unaware that there was a CO2 problem before the technician discovered it. Bud cautions every to make sure they have CO2 detecters and that they are working.

Joy Gagnon and her children pick up the slow cookers that club members have purchased for

her Slow Cooker/Healthy Eating program at Ossipee Central School. Our club sponsored her

program in the fall. At that time she could not accommodate all the families so decided to do a

spring program that our club also sponsored. Joy is an educator working with the NH

Cooperative Extension Services.

Jayne gave a classification talk. She grew up in wealthy Andover, MA. She had a tough childhood living with her grandmother in a one bedroom apartment. She decided that if she worked hard enough she could be like the other half. She took the train into  Boston at night to take college classes to become a bookkeeper. She found that she loved numbers. Her first job was in the office at F. W. Woolworth’s. She had one son but 34 years ago when she married Jim Layne, she inherited a family of eight children. This is when she learn patience and to sometimes bite her tongue. She worked until the day her son called to say that his girlfriend had proposed to him. That May was when she decided to retire.  That lasted until November when she found herself cleaning the inside of the toilet tank. So she went to work again  working for lawyers. She also works at Saco Valley Sports Center and is the treasurer for the Town of  Freedom. Jayne closed by saying, “I am who I am, good at listening, terrible at giving advice you don’t want.”
