Hope everyone had an enjoyable Memorial Day weekend. Saturday was such a nice day. Sunday had some showers, but wasn’t a total wash out. The week is to bring more showers and some nice days too.
Got the following to share from Adel Bradshaw who spent a few days at her home on Church Street:
So Friday night a raccoon came to visit the seed feeders on the deck and was shooed away. I brought the feeders in at that point and last night as well, but left the hummingbird feeders out. This morning, around 4:30, there was a huge thud on the deck that told me it wasn’t the raccoon back again, but rather, a bear. My movement to the door was enough to scare him off, but only as far as the hummingbird feeder in the yard. He stood up on his hind legs, one paw on the tree for balance the other paw tilting the feeder for a nice, long, sweet drink! I figured that if I scared him, he might demolish the feeder, so I waited until he drained it and was back down on the ground. Then I opened the door and shooed him off. Guess I can’t leave any feeders out while I’m gone, at least until there’s more food in the woods and he goes back where he came from. He (or she) was a good size. Certainly not like the cubs that came to visit last year!

Mark and Lisa Fenster, son, Mark, and his wife, and grand kids, Eva and Lily Lopez, all from Philly, spent the Holiday weekend at their home on Church Street. Enjoyed time with Kaeleigh and Kyleigh McDonald.
Irene Huray spent some time with her daughter, Irene Pequignot, in Linden.
A big crowd attended B’s 21st annual Turkey Smoke on Sunday. Lots of food, games, swimming and a fantastic fireworks display to round off the evening. The class of 1993 also held their 25th reunion there. Great time was had by all.
Tent City on Factory Road had some families in to enjoy the weekend.
Civic Association flea market, Saturday, June 16th, 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. at the Pavilion. Something for everyone. Hope to see you there. I’m just hoping the weather will be nice for all the Memorial Day parades that will be held in the County.
Happy Birthday wishes to Shelly Craig, June 1st; Lydia Stasiak, 5th; Lynn Malkemes, 8th; Matt Dayton, 10th. Special birthday wishes to our friend, Gus Tamburro, as he celebrates on the 10th. Hope you all have a nice day.
Bob and JoAnn McGuire visited their son, Bob Jr. and Tyler, Hunlock Creek, on Wednesday. Got to see their little critters in the yard. Had a nice time.
With the summer coming upon us, there will probably be lots of things going on in Sullivan County. Keep abreast of it all by watching the Sully. Hopefully, there will be some nicer weather so folks can work in their gardens and flower beds. Right now it’s too muddy and wet; just Mother Nature giving us too much rain.
HINT: “To keep squirrels from eating your plants, sprinkle the plants with cayenne pepper. It won’t hurt the plants and the squirrels won’t come near it.”
I think that’s the news for now. Enjoy your week, even if you need the umbrella and boots. At least you don’t have to shovel it. 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.
The new bridge is coming along as you can see. The north side now has new main rails. The new bridge will be a bit longer than the old one.
