Weekend wasn’t a total wash out. Did have some heavy rain late Saturday and early Sunday. Power was off from 5 a.m. to 10:30 a.m. due to equipment failure. I guess the gardens and flower beds got a really good drink. Last I heard, it’s to rain most of the week. Sure will be pretty soggy in spots.
Carole Kilgus was honored at an 80th birthday party on Saturday, held at Connell’s Dam. Many family, friends and neighbors gathered to wish her many more years of health and happiness. Lots of good food and visiting too. The little kids even enjoyed swimming. The rain did hold off until all were packed up and on their way home. Looking forward to the 70th next year, Carole.
There will be a work bee to get ready for Old Home Day on Saturday, the 28th; 10:30 a.m. Volunteers welcome to help. Come to the pavilion and see what you can do to get the job done.
At our last work bee, working with tree branches, leaves, etc., someone mistakenly took one of our leaf rakes home. Check to see if you have an extra rake. Return would be appreciated.
St. Vladimir’s Church has pierogies for sale. To order, please call 570-928-1099.

Joe, Diane Fanning, along with Molly, Landenberg, spent some time at their home here. Also joining them were grand daughters Haley Latch, St. Georges, DE, and Rachel Ruggerio, Elkton, MD. The girls did a good job raking the grass after it had been mowed. And, had a good time here.The blueberries are ripening and ready to pick. I know of some folks who went to pick and the bear was there two different days. Think I’ll stay away from that area.
You could mark your calendar now for Tuesday, August 21st for the annual Civic picnic at the Pavilion. Will be at 5 p.m. with the meeting at 6 p.m. Bring a dish to pass and your table service.
Bob Jr. and Tyler McGuire, Hunlock Creek, stopped by to visit Bob and JoAnn McGuire and Brian McGuire on Friday on their way to RIT in Rochester, NY. Tyler will be a Senior at Lake Lehman Jr./Sr. High School so is looking into colleges and what he might like to take. From Rochester, they went to Cambridge, MA, to check a couple colleges there. Time sure flies by. Seems like a short time ago, he was just a little kid playing in the creek and looking for cray fish.
Happy Birthday wishes to Dominic Sneidar (2), 24th; Jan Marie Manuel, 25th; Marino Santarelli, Mark Hartnett and Carole Kilgus, 28th; Madison Burke and Matt Dayton, 29th; and Casey Bonardi, 30th. Hope you all have a nice day.
HINT: ” Once a month use original Dawn as you would shampoo. It will remove excess oil from your hair and scalp and strip away any build-up of styling products without any damage. Perform this once a month and you won’t have to buy expensive salon products that do the same thing.”
