Had some hot weather during the week. Didn’t get the rain that was predicted. Everything is so dry and brown looking. We really do need a nice, slow rain to soak in the ground to help things along. Well, we had some sprinkles Sunday evening. Not much at all, but did wet the roads and grass some. Don’t know what the week will bring, but I hope Mother Nature will work in our favor for Lopez Old Home Day on Saturday, the 6th; Noon to 10 p.m. Lots of things going on so come join us.
Sympathy to the family, relatives and friends of Margaret (Peggy) Hoodak who passed away on Monday, the 25th. Mass of Christian burial was held on the 29th at St. Basil’s Church, with burial in Saints Peter and Paul Cemetery, Lopez. Funeral was under the direction of McCarty-Thomas Funeral Home, Dushore.
We had another good crew at the work bee on Saturday to finish up getting the grounds ready for Old Home Day. Thanks to all who did a great job there. Those included Maggie Brumwell; Clair Johnson; Heather, Kaeleigh and Kyleigh McDonald; CJ Molyneux; Ted Puzo; Alex Stavisky; Barbara Bell and a young lad this time, her nephew, Kessler Gilbert; and Bob and I.
Happy Anniversary to John and Mary Rajkiewicz, Rouse Pond Road, as they celebrate 59 years on August 3rd. Congratulations.
Happy Birthday to Stephen Mikolajczyk and Scherril Dayton, 4th; Kyle Froese and Kathy Lebo, 9th; and Randy Lebo and Mary Lowden, 10th. Hope you all have a nice day.
Did you know you can use honey for skin blemishes. Cover the blemish with a dab of honey and place a band-aid over it. Honey kills the bacteria, keeps the skin sterile, and speeds healing. Open surgical wounds and burn victims are kept clean in the hospital with honey. How sweet is that?
Next Civic meeting will be on Wednesday, the 17th, 6 p.m. at the Pavilion. Hopefully we will have a good report on having a great Old Home Day.
Keep and eye on the Sully, Face Book and Sullivan County News and Bulletin Board for events that may be taking place that you might be interested in.
Joe and Diane Fanning, along with Molly, Landenberg, their granddaughter, Haley Latch and three of her friends are spending some time at the Fanning home here. Weather has been nice so far, so they are able to do things while they are here.
Can’t believe that July has gone and August is here already. Hopefully we will have some nice weather yet to enjoy, before the cold weather sets in.
Don’t have anything else now. Enjoy your week, whatever you plan. Hope to see you Saturday at the Pavilion. Have news, call me at 570-928-9238; mail me; see me; or e-mail me at firstname.lastname@example.org. I will put it in for you. Thanks for reading and I’ll be here next time.
