Meet our beautiful Cici! She is a

gentle, friendly girl, who would

love to find a new family, after

her person died. Cici is approx.

7 years young and she is

outgoing and craves attention.

We don't know anything about

her previous life, but believe Cici

would do best in a quiet home

with adults. Teens would be fine.

She will be a wonderful furry

friend for someone :) And who

can resist those beautiful big

green eyes?

Come and meet Cici at our

shelter in Webster, we are open

Thursday through Saturday from

12 to 3.30. Please call ahead

before your visit to avoid

disappointment.

The CCC is in need of

supplies, especially litter

(Scoop Away), bleach, laundry

detergent, dry and wet cat and

kitten food (Purina/Friskies),

paper towels, trash bags, and

treats! Any help is very much

appreciated!

We are located at 289

Thompson Road in Webster. You

can see more of our adoptable cats

on Petfinder and Adopt-a-pet and

we would love it if you would follow

4 E. Main St.,

Webster, MA 01570

(508) 461-5344

The Rose Room has offered

locally sourced, hand-crafted,

and sustainable breakfast, lunch,

coffee, pastry, and retail for over

two years. Opening at 4 E. Main

in Webster in November 2018,

owners Jess and Bill Sabine

hoped to create a communitydriven

space, where people from

all walks of life could feel welcome

and enjoy local food from farms in

the area. They succeeded.

The cafe, previously open for

breakfast and lunch only, acquired

its liquor license in January 2021

and has quickly made moves

to create a seasonally inspired

dinner menu.

With summer right around the

bend, there is no better time to

buy local, farm-fresh ingredients,

and there will be no shortage of

them on the menu at The Rose

Room. Dishes and ingredients will

change with seasonal availability

and are promised to be delicious.

For the opening menu, local

cheeses from Jasper Hill and

Maple Brook Farms, tomato soup

with house-made ricotta, warm

hummus, and Swedish meatballs

grace the small plates section.

For a large portion, try the Maine

monkfi sh with chard and crispy

garbanzos, the vegan bolognese,

or another of the incredible

options offered.

Everything is local. Everything is

fresh. That includes cocktails,

natural wines, craft beer, specialty

coffee, and baked goods.

Dinner service starts on June 10th

on Thursday, Friday, and Saturday

evenings from 5-9 pm.

A cafe by day and a restaurant by

night, sit, relax, enjoy a specialty

cocktail or coffee, and some

incredible food. Indoor and

outdoor dining is available when

the weather permits.

Getting Started

Visit a garden center or nursery

and select a tree that will be hardy

in your planting zone. Choosing

native trees can increases the

likelihood that the new tree will

adapt to its surroundings. Also,

inspect trees to determine if

they’re healthy before taking them

home. Look for evidence of root

girdling, which occurs when the

roots circle around the perimeter

of the container and surround the

trunk. Trees should not have any

dead or dormant branches.

Shannon Labonte Memorial Fund

Artisans &

HOW TO PLANT

A TREE FOR

SUCCESSFUL

GROWTH

More sunlight and warm

temperatures frequently inspire

homeowners to spend more

time in the great outdoors during

spring and summer.

Outdoor projects often top

homeowners’ to-do lists in spring

and summer, with gardens and

landscapes taking center stage.

Planting more trees around the

yard is one popular project that

can improve property value and

benefit the environment.

tched

re you

?

Why Plant Trees?

There are plenty of reasons

to plant trees. Trees provide a

natural form of shade, reducing air

temperature by blocking the sun’s

rays. This can reduce reliance

on air conditioning systems and

make it more comfortable to

spend time outdoors during the

summer.

North Carolina State University

College of Agriculture & Life

Sciences says trees absorb and

block noise and reduce glare. They

also can trap dust, pollen and

smoke. Trees also absorb carbon

dioxide and potentially harmful

gasses from the air. One large tree

can supply a day’s worth of oxygen

for as many as four people, while

also storing 13 pounds of carbon

per year.

The DIY Network suggests locating

the tree where it can thrive. This

means selecting a spot that can

make it easier for the tree to grow

tall and wide. Avoid planting near

the house, where roots can crack

concrete or asphalt, and always

plant away from underground

pipes.

Planting the Tree

Now it is time to amend the soil.

It’s not enough to enrich only the

soil in the hole where the tree will

be placed. Move out into a circular

area beyond where the roots will

start so that roots can expand and

properly anchor the tree. The next

method of success is to ensure

that the tree has a large enough

hole to contain the existing root

ball and allow for roots to grow

and expand. Better Homes and

Gardens experts say to prepare

a hole that is two to three times

as wide as the root ball of the

tree. Treat the root ball gently. If

the roots are wrapped in burlap,

remove the burlap or push it to the

bottom of the hole.

Backfill the hole with soil and

check that the tree is straight.

Stake the tree to help it stay

upright and straight until the

roots anchor it more effectively.

A layer of mulch around the base

of the tree can prevent weeds and

reduce water loss. Water daily for

several weeks until the roots have

fanned out.

It’s best to leave trees be for

the first growing season, only

removing broken or diseased

limbs. Resist pruning and shaping

until the tree has survived its first

growing season.
