Turned out to be quite a nice weekend, after some cool early morning temperatures. Not the case in Texas and Louisiana where they are battling Hurricane Harvey and getting some pretty nasty weather for the next few days. Just pray that all will be safe. The week is to be pretty nice from reports I have heard and that sounds good to me.
Sympathy from the community to the family, relatives and friends of Andy Work who recently passed away. Nice, friendly man.
Sympathy from the community also to the family, relatives and many, many friends of Arno Serafini who was involved in an auto accident on Friday and died as a result. I didn’t know him well, but from what I’ve been reading on Face Book, he was a great man. He will be deeply missed by all.
Condolences from the community to the Woodruff family on the passing of Audrey on Saturday. Such a nice lady.
Just to clear something up that I read in last week’s Sully. Kathy Sandow is not Lopez Judge of Election. She is a candidate and will be on the November ballot. There is also another person running for the same position. I am Judge until January 2018. Just saying.
Don’t forget, Flea Market, Saturday, September 2nd, 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. at the Pavilion. Lots of things to browse through. Something for everyone. Hope to see you there.
Also, mark your calendar for Tuesday, September 19th, 6 p.m. at the Pavilion, for the annual Civic picnic. Bring a dish to pass and table service. There will be a short meeting after the picnic. This is for all who helped in any way at our Lopez Old Home Days and for anyone in the community that would like to come. Just a get-together for all to enjoy a good time.

Mrs. Irene Huray has returned home after spending last week with her daughter, Irene Pequignot, in Linden. She spent the weekend here with her mother. Sophia Bednar, Endicott, NY, was also here for the weekend.
The turkeys are out and about. We’ve been watching about six big ones and eleven little ones make their way from the woods, down through the field to the creek. The little ones are getting pretty big already.
