The Rev. Joseph Giroux blesses palm leaves held by parishioners of St. André Bessette Parish in Malone as they prepare to celebrate Palm Sunday. Palm Sunday commemorates the entrance of Jesus into Jerusalem, as recounted in the Gospels. Cold weather prevented the worshippers from holding a planned procession outside. The weekend also marked the return of the parish to St. Joseph’s Church on West Main Street, which sat dormant this winter to save money on the parish’s heating bills.
Several ducks swim in the largely ice-free Salmon River in Malone recently. Although the weather took a turn to the winter-like Friday, with snow replacing the rain that fell much of Thursday, the forecast calls for somewhat warmer temperatures for the early part of the week.
Large sheets of ice pile up on a fallen tree in the Salmon River along Lower Park Street in Malone on Thursday. Snow melt from the recent warm temperatures and rain have the river running high, but no flooding has been reported. Temperatures are expected to dip into the single digits overnight tonight and stay cold on Saturday, but should climb back into the low 40s for the early part of next week.
Dozens of people lined up in the rain with the furry companions for a rabies vaccine clinic at the Bangor Fire Station on Wednesday night. Clinic organizers said the turnout was better than usual, at least in part because of reports that a Westville youth was being treated for rabies exposure after playing with a dog that had been bitten by a rabid raccoon earlier this month.
