Well, I guess Spring is not around the corner for us with the cold, windy, snowy temperatures we’ve been having. I see it is to warm up and hope it’s soon.
With all the stuff going on over Christmas, I failed to mention a few folks who were instrumental in putting together the Christmas party for the Lopez kids. Chase and Jody Brumwell; Maggie Brumwell; Pat Arcaro; Les and Kathy Isett; and Linda Patson did an amazing job and the kids loved it. Santa even stopped by to visit with the kids and hand out gifts. Thank you to Jason Bahr for taking care of the garbage. It is all very much appreciated. Thank you for a really good time.
St. Vladimir’s Church has pierogies for sale the first and third Sunday of the month at the Church Hall, from Noon to 1 p.m. To order, call 570-928-8909.
This has been in before, but I think its a good reminder again for this time of year. For icy sidewalks and driveways: 1/4 cup alcohol, 6 drops liquid dish soap, 1/2 gallon water. Mix in a bucket and pour on sidewalks and driveway. Be sure to sweep any excess of water to prevent re-freezing.
Thank you Lois McCarty who called me to tell me that she keeps her lettuce wrapped in aluminum foil also. She said it keeps good for up to 6 weeks. She also does celery, but not the cucumbers. She likes fresh cucumbers in the summer.
Sympathy from the community to the family, relatives and friends of Emily (Millie) Andrewlavage who passed away on the 17th of February. She was born in Lopez and lived here many years. She recently was living in New Jersey. Funeral was held on the 26th, at St. Vladimir’s Church, with Rev. Dennis Hendershot, and burial in the parish cemetery.
Did you know that the Tick Research Laboratory of PA says that ticks can live during the cold weather months, so no break for us. Snow coverage acts as a giant quilt to keep ticks warm under leaf litter. They are less prevalent, but keep an eye out, especially when hunting or working outside.
The 52nd annual Che-Hanna Gem and Mineral show will be held on Saturday and Sunday, March 26 and 27 at the Wysox Volunteer Fire Hall. This will be from 9-5 on Saturday and 10-4 on Sunday. There will be educational displays, geode cutting, cabochon making, Fluorescent mineral programs by UV Bob, mini mine for the kids and many dealers with fossils, minerals and all kinds of goodies. There will also be a fossil and artifact exhibit by Susquehanna River Archaeological Center. Fun for all. Hope to see you there.
Due to some unfortunate circumstances, the Mildred Active Living Center at St. Francis Hall, will not be opened as planned on March 1st. The COVID pandemic and labor shortages presented some challenges to the SBBT Agency on Aging. They are working in earnest to recruit personnel and acquire additional equipment. There will be a future opening date. They thank you for your patience and will keep in touch with everyone.
Did you know if you add two drops of peppermint oil to your regular shampoo and massage your scalp as you shower, it will get rid of dandruff. Peppermint oil possesses antifungal and antimicrobial properties that make it excellent for combating dandruff.
Happy Birthday to Anthony Sneidar, March 1st; Keene Vinetelli 5th; Bethany Dendler, 6th; Janelle Day, 9th; Ruby Malkemes and Rally Rose (McGee) Tierney, 10th. Hope you all have a really nice day.
Hope you all are over your flu, colds and Covid and feeling much better. Hopefully with the warm weather, it will make everyone feel good. I did hear we are in for some warmer days this week.
Guess that’s the news for now. Enjoy your week. Have news, call me by 6 p.m. on Sunday evening at 570-928-9238; mail me; see me; or e-mail me at firstname.lastname@example.org. I will get it in for you. Thanks for reading, comments, and I’ll be here next time.
