Hope you all enjoyed another nice week of good weather. Tuesday was the only day that was dreary and miserable with rain all day. The weekend was perfect again for cook-outs and gatherings.
Sadly, we lost two of our Lopez residents last week. On Wednesday, both Mamie Kravetz and Dolores Mattichak passed away. Mamie had been staying with her niece, Pam Arthur. Dolores was with her son in North Carolina. Both will be missed. Sympathy from the community to the family and friends of both these nice ladies. Private funeral services for Mamie were on Tuesday, with Rev Archimandrite Michael Thier presiding. Funeral for Dolores was on Monday with Rev Dennis Hendershot presiding. Burial for both was in St. Vladimir’s Cemetery, Lopez.
Got the following e-mail and hope someone can help:
This is Rosemarie Halady. I own the Kivetisky house on Turrelltown Rd.
My neighbor messaged me that earlier in the week she saw ” a woman whose father was born in your house. They took a look around.” That was all the info she gave me. I would like to get in touch with her. I would like to let her look around inside (hopefully next year if/when I come up (Covid)) as well as ask her if she has a photo of the house from when her family lived there. ( Saw there was once a north gable when I had a new roof put on last year and would love to see how it looked.) I framed a photo of Marie Sysock and her family and it hangs in the house’s living room and would like to do the same with any other previous inhabitants. (Contact me at the information below for her phone number or e-mail address.)
Cindy and Joe and Mike and Becky spent some time here visiting their parents, Alex and Ginny. Couldn’t have asked for better weather.
Thank you to Tom and Barb Keller for their generous donation for up-keep of Cold Spring. They have a place on Dutch Mountain Road and go to Cold Spring often. Anyone wishing to donate to help with up-keep, send to Lopez Civic Association, P.O. Box 100, Lopez, PA 18628 and mark the envelope “Cold Spring”. Any donations are greatly appreciated.
Bob McGuire, Jr. and Tyler visited on Sunday with us and also with Brian, and Nina Weslowski. Being Tyler’s last Sunday at home, Brian had a little cook-out while they were here. He will be going back to RIT in Rochester, NY, for his sophmore year. Also there was Gerry and Paula Weslowski who had spent the weekend at their camp here.
Civic meeting will be on WEDNESDAY, the 19th, 6 p.m. at the Pavilion.
Being things are still cancelled, there isn’t a whole lot of news to report. Hopefully this pandemic will be over and we can get on with things the way they once were, or as close as possible.
Happy Birthday wishes to Dustin Burke, 15th; Kevin Pequignot, 16th; TJ Lowden, 17th; Andrew Froese, 20th; and Mary (Maximiek) Santiago, 21st. Hope you all have a nice day.
Happy Anniversary to Bill and Bonnie Killian as they celebrate on the 16th. Have a good day and many more years.
Well, that’s the news for now. Enjoy your week. As I’m typing my news early Monday morning the sun is shining and looks like a great day to be out and about. I heard from Tuesday to Friday we could have rain showers, but the gardens and flowers do need the rain. It’s been very dry. At least it will be warm.
Remember social distancing, wearing the masks and washing your hands.
Have news, call me at 570-928-9238; mail me; see me; or e-mail me at email@example.com. I will get it in for you. I’ll be here next time and thanks for reading.
