Can’t really complain about the nice weather we’ve been having. Cold mornings, but warm during the day. I know the hunters would rather snow to track the deer and then drag it out of the woods when its shot, but I’ll take this weather for sure.
Cory McDonald, Wakefield, RI, spent the Thanksgiving holiday here visiting family and friends.
NO Civic meeting in the month of December due to the Christmas holiday.
St. Vladimir’s Church has pierogies for sale. To order, please call 570-928-1099.
Sympathy from the community on the passing of Jim McGinty on the 29th of November. A mass of Christian burial will be held on December 10th at St. Francis Church, Mildred, with Rev. Rojas presiding. A pleasant man to know and he will be missed,
The first marking period Honor Roll has come out. Those on the Distinguished Honor Roll include Kyler and Paige Burke; Aaron and Trevor Kinsey; and Kassidy Brown. On Honor Roll was Joey Malkemes and Jacob Williams. Congratulations, great job and keep up the good work.
Santa Claus made a visit to Lopez on Saturday when he stopped by Russian Hall to visit with the many kids and others who gathered there. Thanks to Barbara Andrewlavage who again chaired this event. Big Thank You to her for donating all the craft items used and the candy given. It is much appreciated. The Civic Association has Santa give out the big bag of toys. All had a great time. Someone mentioned there must have been fifty people in attendance.
Happy Birthday wishes go out to Dylan Amon, 13th; Noah Brown, 14th; Carter Vermiere, 17th; and V Rev Mother Christophora and Christian Santarelli, both on the 19th. Hope you all have a great day.
On December 16th, Red Rock Job Corps will be having their wrapping party at the Santa Workshop there. The kids get to pick a gift for someone at home, it is wrapped for them and everyone has a good time. If you’re interested in helping, contact Jackie Johnson at
Johnson.JackieJ@jobcorps.org. You’ll enjoy doing this.
HINT: “Brighten up your fireplace brickwork by using one cup of white vinegar and one gallon of warm water. Scrub the area and your bricks will look shiny and nice.” (Good for those decorating for the Christmas holiday.)
Still have a few Lopez mugs available. Also Lopez t-shirts and sweatshirts. Makes nice Christmas gifts. If interested, contact me at the info below.
I guess that’s about it. Enjoy your week. Get out and take advantage of the sunshine. Have news, call me at 570-928-9238; mail me; see me; or e-mail me at firstname.lastname@example.org. I’ll get it in for you. Thanks for reading and I’ll be here next time.
