There are several places to stop in Grafton Notch State Park in Oxford county, Maine. We have been to them all, but we wanted to stop at Moose Cave and walk the trails again. We thought we would take you along to see what beautiful sights there are. We will find out what Moose Cave is all about and see what's in there. The bugs were enjoying us being there too. Bug spray is recommended. This was a nice easy hike but watch for roots and rocks on the trail. Enjoy!

Shirley L. Davis

HARRISON — Shirley Libby Davis, 99, died at home on Friday, May 20, 2022, surrounded by her loving family. She was born on February 28, 1923 in Westbrook, to Merle and Effie Libby. She attended grade school and most of high school in Westbrook, but she spent her last year of high school at Buxton High School, graduating in 1942. She was always interested in fashion and art and wanted to go to New York City (the fashion capital of the world) for college after high school. It was during the war, however, and her parents were nervous about letting her go so far away. So, she attended the Portland School of Art for a year. Her parents finally relented, and they let her enroll at Pratt Institute in NYC, where she obtained her degree in Fashion Design. She then worked at several jobs in New York and Boston but decided, after a few years, that she wanted to return to Maine. She was working in Portland in the year 1948 during which she was introduced to her sister-in-law’s cousin, Richard Davis, from Harrison. There was an instantaneous attraction, and they were married on October 1, 1949.
