After a couple of horrible thunder storms, the weekend turned out perfect for Old Home Days on Saturday and Sunday. Was a little muddy in spots but it didn’t seem to bother.
The Lopez Civic Association would like to thank Fitzpatrick and Lambert, Dushore, for the tractor; Ron Gutosky, Dushore, for the wagon, and Ron Patson, Patson Mechanical Contracting, Dushore, for making our hay ride super this year. Thanks to Grovedale Winery, Wyalusing; Winterland Winery, Dushore; and Lopez winery, Lopez, for donating to our basket raffle. Many thanks to EVERYONE who helped in any way to make our Old Home Days the success it was. There are way too many to mention; you know who you are; we really appreciate all the help and support. Saturday night was awesome with Brian McGuire in charge. There were games, hay rides, dunk tank, lots of food and beverages, Bingo and an epic fireworks show at dark. Lots of thanks goes to Brian McGuire and everyone at “Tent City” who donated to the fireworks fund. Without them, there would be nothing to see. Music was provided by DJ “B”. There were t-shirts, hoodies, koozies and license plates sold both days. Sunday, with Bob McGuire in charge, there was about the same going on, without the DJ and the fireworks. Games, Bingo, dunk tank, lots of food and beverages, etc. took place. Seems all enjoyed our Old Home Days this year. The Civic Association would like to you, the public, for coming out and having an enjoyable day. It was nice to see many folks who come back year after year to visit with old friends and make some new ones. Let’s hope next year is even better.
Mike and Cherry Armioia came in from New Jersey to pick up their grandkids, Charles and Serena Armioia and they all went to Ohio for the week to visit Cherry’s sister and family.

HINT: “Relieve pain from poison ivy, chickepox and sunburn by pounding one to four cups of Cheerios into a powder and add to your bathe to soothe your skin while you soak. You may not feel relief while in the tub, but you will soon after.” (Didn’t know you can use food in so many different ways. I met a couple at Old Home Day that reads the Sully every week and love the hints, so keep them coming. I know some do work and some do not, but I’ll do my best to have some good ones.)
Happy Birthday wishes to Andrew Froese, 20th; Mary (Maximiek) Santiago, 21st (had a nice visit with her OHD); Macrina Pochatko, 23rd; Karly Amon, 26th; and Gaige Burke will be 8 on the 29th. Have a good day, all.
Happy Anniversary to Jason and Heather Burke as they celebrate on the 26th. Congrats and many more.
From Mr. Neubauer’s little brown book: August 7, 1979 – Fair and cold and 34 degrees (must be early morning). As I type my news this Monday morning, it’s cloudy, foggy, very cool and rainy. Not so good, but hope the weather will change for the better during the week. So happy we didn’t get that for OHDays.
Guess that’s the news for now. Enjoy your week; I know I’m going to just kick back and relax. Have news, give me a call at 570-928-9238; mail me; see me; or e-mail me at firstname.lastname@example.org. I’ll get it in for you. I’ll have more next week on Old Home Day. Thanks for reading and I’ll be here next time.
Three 1960 classmates present at the 2017 Old Home days that went to the school where the pavilion now stands are Bob McGuire, Barbara Neufer Harvey, and Joe Caccia.
