Sunday was a beautiful day; much better than Saturday. We had temperatures in the high 60’s with sunshine and a warm breeze. I would hope it would stay that way. We did have over two inches of rain Thursday into Friday.
Got the following e-mail from Fr. Hendershot, Priest at St. Vladimir’s Church, to share. This was over the Easter Holiday.
So the guests at the Saint Nicholas house, Church Street, were as follows. Patty Martinez (sang alto) and husband Robert Martinez and their 3 children; Peter (helped with procession) , Lupita (sang alto) and Olivia (sang soprano) Dana Kuhn (directed the choir and sang soprano) and husband Michal (sang bass)
We are thankful for the help they gave with the singing of the services. We were blessed with beautiful singing for the services of Holy Friday and the feast of Pascha.
These two families were very grateful to have been able to stay at the St. Nicholas house, and they loved the fact that they were able to walk to the church. Also they really enjoyed the fact that the Lopez creek is right behind the house.
Also visiting Lopez were the Hendershot family members. Son Nicholas and wife Claudia were visiting from Virginia with our grandsons Gabriel and Michael who were excited to be altar boys. Our son David came from Martinsburg West Virginia, and Daughter Laura came with her boyfriend Bobby. Tuesday we are expecting our other daughter Elizabeth with her husband Fr. Noah and their 8 children. When we have family and friends visiting, they love going to Ricketts Glenn State Park to walk the path with the waterfalls. “Lopez is such a lovely place” we heard over and over.
Mark your calendar now. There will be a halupki dinner at St. Vladimir’s Church Hall on Sunday, May 7th, Noon to 4 p.m. Eat In or Take Out. This is a good fund raiser for the Church so do stop in for a good meal. Could be an early Mother’s Day dinner.
The Lopez Civic Association would like to extend thanks to Mildred American Legion for the generous donation of their Bingo supplies for our use. It is greatly appreciated and will be used.
Don’t forget…..street sweeper will be in town on May 1st between 6:30 and 7 a.m. so be prepared for noise and dust.
Watch the Sully for info on the dumpster that will be here on June 3rd, 8 a.m. to Noon, Township Building. Ad will tell you what you can and cannot take.
Joe and Diane Fanning, along with Molly, Landenberg, and granddaughters Haley Latch, St. Georges, DE and Rachel Ruggerio, Elkton, MD, spent a few days at their home on Church Street. Diane said it was nice to see no snow this time. The girls even put on their swim suits and spent a couple hours at the creek. Said the water wasn’t bad at all.
I see Cory McDonald came in from Rhode Island to visit family and friends over the weekend.
“Tent City” had some activity over the weekend as some of the Borick’s were in to enjoy the nice weather.
Happy Birthday wishes to send out to Paige and Kyler Burke, May 1st; JoAnn Day, 2nd; Ryan Dempsey and Ted Lowden, 7th. Hope you all have a nice day.
HINT: “Laundry pre-soak spray: 1 cup water, 1 cup liquid Wisk and 1 cup ammonia. Pour all ingredients into a spray bottle. Spray liberally on soiled areas of clothing. Let saturate; scrub and toss into the washer.”
The bear has been seen around town. It was on Main Street, Church Street, Factory Road and at Lopez Winery. It’s a pretty good sized one too.
With the nicer weather, folks will be able to work on their gardens and flower beds. And……there’s always lawn mowing to do.
St. Vladimir’s Church has pierogies for sale. To order, call 570-928-1099.
NOTE: Change in date and place for the next Civic meeting. Due to Election Day on Tuesday, May 16th, Civic meeting will be held on Wednesday, the 17th, 6 p.m. at the Pavilion. In case of really cool, bad weather, it will be in the Township Bldg. Let’s hope it’s real warm and will stay around for the duration of summer.
Guess that’s the news for now. Enjoy your week, whatever; should be pretty nice from what I’ve heard. But, you know how that goes. Have news call me at 570-928-9238; mail me; see me; or e-mail me at firstname.lastname@example.org. I’ll get in in for you. Thanks for reading and I’ll be here next time.
