November 24, 2021
Gee! I can’t believe the month of November is almost gone. Where did the time go? We did have some cold weather during the week. We had some light snow and on Thursday we had a warm up when the temperature went up to 59 degrees by 9:30 a.m. What a good feeling that was. We also had some frost and lower temperatures. Last I heard this next week is to be pretty good with only a few rain and snow showers. Will be good for those who are traveling for the Holiday. I was just out, came in, and as I’m typing my news, there is a cold rain shower. Sure hope it doesn’t freeze.
Birthdays to round out the month include Serenity Laird and Reese Baton, 23rd; and Cassidy Brown, 30th. Have a great day.
St. Vladimir’s Church has pierogies for sale the first and third Sunday of each month. They can be picked up at the Church Hall from Noon to 1 p.m. Call 570-928-8909 to order.
There will be no more Civic meetings until the New Year and when the weather is in our favor. Watch the Sully for that information. Membership dues are still being taken. See Heather McDonald to renew or join. Hopefully, plans in the making to have Old Home Day in 2022.
Joe and Diane Fanning, along with Molly, Landenberg, are spending a few days over the Thanksgiving Holiday at their home on Church Street.
I got a phone call the other day from Mr. Marek. In his robust voice he said, “Mrs. McGuire, you made a mistake in last week’s news and you have to fix it. I’m not 95 years old. I am 96 years old.” So, Mr. Marek, I fixed it and Happy 96th Birthday and many more. He seems real pleased to be that age. God Bless these old folks.
Hope everyone is feeling well and doesn’t have the virus or flu. I saw on TV the other night that cases are really rising again, with Luzerne County on the top of the list. So, I guess wear your mask, wash your hands and practice the six foot distance. I guess we have to put up with it until it finally leaves for good.
On Saturday, some of the Lopez Civic members gathered at the Monument around Noon to do the Christmas decorating. Got done in a couple of hours and the weather wasn’t bad at all. Thanks to Clair Johnson; Jody and Maggie Brumwell; Heather, Kaleigh and Kyleigh McDonald; and Bob and I we had an enjoyable day and hope that everyone likes the display when we turn the lights on. May make your day a little brighter.
I guess there were some lucky bear hunters in Sullivan County. I saw a post on Face Book that there were 60 bears taken on Saturday, the first day of the season. Good luck hunters as you go out.
Tyler McGuire has come home to Lopez for Thanksgiving break from his studies at RIT in Rochester, New York.
I hope everyone has a safe and blessed Thanksgiving with family and friends. Take a minute to think of those who aren’t with us at the time. Pray for the service men and women that they stay safe, wherever they are.
I think that’s the news. Enjoy your week. Hopefully you’ll only need the umbrella and not the snow shovel. Have news call me at 570-928-9238; mail me; see me; or e-mail me at email@example.com. I will get it in for you. Take care, stay well, stay safe and see you next time.
