Sympathy is also extended to the family and friends of Rick Handel from Jimtown who recently passed away. Rick was a veteran and retired from the U.S. Postal Service. His wife, Carolyn (Archihowsky) was from Lilly.



The first reported hummingbird in town this year was in Shirley Patterson’s yard on Jones Street. The bird arrived on May 1. Out in the township however one was seen in my sister Monica’s yard on April 16 before she had her feeders out. I have been watching but haven’t seen any at my feeder yet. I did however see a pair of Grosbeaks. The finches that I see daily have a beautiful yellow color at the present time.

Last week I erred when I wrote up the anniversaries. Several readers noted my error in saying Mike and Betty McCarthy celebrated their anniversary. It was actually class mate Mike Phillips and his wife Betty who were celebrating.

Others from the Class of 61, Joe Zurilla and his wife Beatrice (Wilk), observed their 50th wedding anniversary recently.

Eric and Cindy Brickley celebrate their wedding anniversary today, May 8 followed by Mary and Matt Boland on the 9th and John and Roxann Seymore on the 12th.

Happy Anniversary to All!



Remember when kids would line the streets waiting for a wedding party to pass by and throw out pennies.
