MIINER MEMORIAL On September 5th Tom Slattery was working on the miners memorial when he noticed a Monarch butterfly alighting on a recently installed plant in the Butter Fly garden. That seems like a good omen for the park which is getting more beautiful by the day. For an update see Jim Salonys article in this edition. There is a yellow ribbon in front of the monument. It is not intended to keep people out, it is to remind drivers not to pull onto the grass.

OLDTIMERS You are an old timer if you remember Tony Ritz’s factory bus that took workers to the Gallitzin sewing factory. You are also an oldtimer if you remember your high school football team playing against Gallitzin, or if you hitch hiked to Gallitzin to chase the many pretty girls there.
