Northwood Church Holds Passion Week Services
Come Alive…This Easter, You’ll Never Be the Same! Over 2,000
years ago, God’s plan of redemption altered the world. The power
of sin and death was broken through the crucifixion and
resurrection of Jesus Christ that first Easter. Death was
defeated. True life triumphed! And today we continue in God’s
story of love as our everyday lives and world are renewed

know what Easter is all about…the death and resurrection of
Jesus. But is it possible that there’s more hope and freedom for
our lives right now than what we are experiencing in the
We’ll dive in to what the events of Holy Week mean for not only
eternity, but right this moment. On Palm Sunday, we will focus
on the significance of Jesus’ entry into Jerusalem, and what his
journey means for our own today. The Marshall’s from Auburn
Maine will be leading and sharing in music. On Thursday, we will
not look down in fear or defeat, but hold our heads high as we
focus on the cross and coming alive to the ultimate sacrifice.
And then on Easter, we will celebrate the resurrection and
coming alive with His power that changes our lives. Pastor Don
Plummer accomplished trumpet player and singer will share in
music. You are invited to all of these services. Call

This Weekend’s LRPA After Dark Feature:
1947’s “Till The Clouds Roll By”
Join Lakes Region Public Access Television at 10:30 p.m. this
Friday and Saturday night (March 30 & 31) for our “LRPA After
Dark” presentation of 1947’s musical biopic of the life of
Broadway composer Jerome Kern: “Till The Clouds Roll By,”
featuring a star-studded cast including Judy Garland, June
Allyson, Dinah Shore, Lena Horne, Cyd Charisse, Robert Walker
and Frank Sinatra, among many others.
This MGM musical tells Kern’s story as a series of reminiscences
between the composer (played by Robert Walker) and his
chauffeur. These scenes are really just excuses for the lavish
studio production numbers, complete with singing and dancing in
vibrant 1940’s Technicolor. Some of the more famous musical
numbers that viewers are treated to include Judy Garland,
pregnant at the time with Liza Minnelli, singing “Look for the
Silver Lining;” Lena Horne performing an amazing “Can’t Help
Loving Dat Man” from the musical “Showboat;” and the film’s
grand finale: Frank Sinatra, clad in white from head to toe,
singing his version of “Ol’ Man River,” again, from “Showboat.”
Kern himself approved of this biopic, and notably the sometimes
maligned choice of Frank Sinatra to sing the final ballad.
Sadly, he never got to see the finished film, as Kern died in
1945 at the age of 60. “Till The Clouds Roll By” was a
critical and commercial success, and still wows audiences today
with its high MGM production values, stunning camera work and
gorgeous vocal arrangements for the studio’s top stars of the
day. Turner Classic Movies calls “Till The Clouds Roll By” “… a
superb slice of post-war escapist fare … top notch … smoothly
directed.” If you love mid-century musicals, how can you resist?
Grab your popcorn and join LRPA after dark for this Technicolor

Letter To The Editor
was thinking about how much cardboard and paper we collect in a
week at my house and I decided to weigh one week’s worth. The
total was 14 lbs. This didn’t seem like a lot, and I do put it
in the recycling compactor at the transfer station. Then I got
to thinking about those who don’t bother to recycle their
cardboard and paper so I decided to run the numbers.
lbs. per week 14x4= 56 lbs. per month 12 x 56=672 lbs. per year
have an average of 2000 households in Northwood, so 2000 x
1,344,000 lbs. divided by 20001bs. in a ton = 672 tons
we were paying $65 per ton plus $6 per mile for hauling (42
miles for each haul = $252), and if our cardboard compactor
holds 7 tons, that means in a year we would pay $56,532 just to
depose of our cardboard and paper. Luckily, many of us do
recycle it, so this figure is higher than we actually pay.
far as I can tell, our cardboard and paper is being recycled,
but after going through the invoices at the town hall for the
transfer station for 2017, I couldn’t find any accurate amounts
for tonnages or cost, nor could I find any accurate numbers for
monies made from recycling our cardboard or paper.
we have a recycling program in place and we don’t have any
records of tonnages and revenues, how do we know if the program
is working? It’s very important to keep accurate records.
need to come up with some solution to this problem so that the
transfer station can run as efficiently as possible. Saving as
much taxpayer money as possible should be our number one
Northwood Boy Collects Donations for His Birthday
Ten-year-old Tyler Fuller celebrated his birthday party with
friends and family on Saturday, March 17th. The party was
held at the Nottingham recreation center where kids danced,
played nerf games and enjoyed St. Patrick’s Day themed
celebration of a special birthday, Tyler’s family suggested
collecting donations. Without hesitation, Tyler selected Pet
Tails Rescue in Northwood and his school library. Tyler
has always lived with rescued animals, so it was no surprise
that he would want donations to go to an organization that
coordinates rescue services from shelters in southern states and
places dogs and cats in loving, adoptive homes all over New
Nearly 60 assorted items were collected for Pet Tails Rescue and
the school library thanks to the generosity of Tyler’s friends,
mostly Northwood residents.
Maureen Cahill, President of Pet Tails Rescue was pleasantly
surprised when she found out about all of the goodies she would
soon be receiving; she wrote “What an absolutely selfless
and generous cause to undertake on behalf of homeless animals.
It truly reflects your compassion for animals. We are
honored and blessed to have your family as part of our community
and to be the recipient of such a generous donation.”
