We’ve had some pretty nice weather after some cool, frosty mornings. Temperatures did get up to 40+ degrees. We did have some rain and with the warm temperatures, the snow is almost gone. Last I heard, the weather is to be fairly nice for the week. Sure hope Santa has a plan to get around for Christmas if there is no snow for his sleigh. He’s a pretty inventive guy, so I’m sure he’ll work something out. All the boys and girls better be good for him to stop by.
Kids will be on Christmas break from the 20th until after New Year’s. Please be watchful as there may be kids outside playing or riding bikes, etc. and we don’t want any accidents happening. Just slow down and be alert.
The Civic Association thanks St. Vladimir’s Church for the use of the Church Hall for the kids Christmas party. Was a good time for all.
Thank you to Mildred American Legion Post 452 for the third year sponsoring Wreaths Across America on Saturday, the 16th. A large crowd was in attendance at St. Francis Hall for a service led by Tim Higley, Post Commander. Wreaths were given out to those who were designated to put them on the various cemetery graves to honor the fallen heroes who “gave their all” to keep our country FREE!! In Lopez, wreaths were placed at St. Vladimir’s Cemetery, SS Peter and Paul Cemetery, EUB Cemetery and Ellis Cemetery. Thank you to everyone who participated. Weather was perfect to place these wreaths.
Nina Weslowski and her Mom, Paula, from Allentown, spent a week in Boston helping out with Nina’s Nan (Paula’s Mom) as she had the misfortune to fall and break her wrist. She’s coming along well for a “young” lady who will turn 101 on New Year’s Eve.
Happy Birthday wishes to Everlyn Brumwell, 21st; Kaeleigh McDonald and Lillie Ann Bahr, 23rd; and Ginny Stavisky, 31st. Hope you all have a nice day.
To get rid of ants, put small piles of cornmeal where you see them. They eat it, take it “home” and can’t digest it so they are killed. May take a week or so, especially if it rains, but it does work and you don’t have to worry about harming pets or children.
Still got time to get that last minute shopping done. Got your tree up and decorated; got the baking all done? Time is passing by so quickly, Christmas will be here in the blink of an eye, so hope you’re ready.
There are still some things that will be going on around the County, so keep an eye on the Sully and Face Book to check them out. Something might be of interest to you.
This will be the last Sully until after the New Year. Merry Christmas and Happy New Year to the Shoemaker family and all of the Sully staff for the work they do in getting the paper out every week. Christmas greetings to all who take the time to read my news and give me advice or compliments (good and bad). I enjoy all the comments. Hopefully 2024 will be a good year.
That’s it for now. Enjoy your week, whatever it is that’s on your agenda. I will see you in 2024. Hope everyone is well and the flu bug stays away. Have news, call me at 570-928-9238; mail me; see me; or e-mail me at firstname.lastname@example.org. I will get it in for the first issue of 2024. Thanks for reading.
No news next week, so see you next year in 2024. HAPPY NEW YEAR
