Hope you all had a nice Father’s Day weekend. Most of the week was windy, cloudy, some rain, some sun and some warmth. Mother Nature still can’t make up her mind what kind of weather we should have.
Friday was a great day for a surprise birthday encounter for Nina Weslowski when her parents, Gerry and Paula, her brother, Paul and friends, Jordan and Chris popped in from Allentown to spend the weekend. She was surprised!! They had told her they couldn’t come as they all had to work. They “fibbed”. On Saturday they had a cook out at the Lopez campground with other friends helping her celebrate. Was a fun time and the evening ended with fabulous fire works by “B”. Also was a nice Father’s Day for her Dad.
TJ, Allison, and Jase Lowden, along with Wesson, Marlton, NJ, spent the weekend at their home on Church Street. They were here to spend Father’s Day with his Dad, Ted and Mary Lowden, Maple Terrace. TJ was put to work and got the job done really well.

Keep an eye on the Sully, now that the weather “may be nicer”, for things going on around the County that you might be interested in.
With all the rain we’ve been having, it’s hard to get gardens planted and flower beds done. It’s mostly too wet and mushy. Farmers, especially, are affected by this crazy weather.
I think that may be the news for this time. Enjoy your week, even if you have to wear you rain boots. At least it’s not a lot of snow and cold. Have news, call me at 570-928-9238; mail me; see me; or e-mail me at firstname.lastname@example.org. I will put it in for you. Thanks for reading and I’ll be here next time.
