Not a bad weekend. Was a little chilly, but we didn’t get what some of the other States got and the week is to be pretty nice. Will make it nice for those travelers going visiting over the Thanksgiving holiday. I know there were quite a few hunters in for the three days of bear season and hoped they maybe got one. Then, rifle deer season will be upon us right after Thanksgiving, so I’m staying as far from the woods as I can during that time.
Just want to put another “blurb” in about telling folks to SLOW DOWN on any street in Lopez. There was another cat that was hit and killed by a car. I know pets are family, but if that was a child, it would be much worse. There is no reason to “fly” on these roads, especially now that we have many more kids in town. Think about it. SLOW DOWN and keep everyone safe. If you have to get somewhere so fast, leave a little earlier.
I hope you got to see “A Fractured Christmas Carol”, put on by the New Albany Volunteer Fire Company on Friday or Saturday. We went Friday evening and it was so good. The cast did an excellent job and I never laughed so much. During Intermission, they auctioned off bags that you didn’t know what was inside and they also had a Chinese auction. It’s always nice to support these folks with their fund raisers. Good job, all, and can’t wait for next year.
The Civic Association will be putting up the Christmas decorations on Friday, the 27, 11 a.m. Meet at the Pavilion and anyone is welcome to come and help. Weather should be in our favor.
St. Vladimir’s Church has pierogies for sale. To order, please call 570-928-1099. They will also be having an ethnic foods dinner on Sunday, the 29th, Noon to 5 p.m. at the Church Hall. This is eat in or take out. See their ad in the paper. Nice place to go and have some good food to eat.
Cold Spring is coming along very nicely. The water is running. There will be some landscaping done in the Spring when it’s not so muddy. If you’d like to donate anything toward maintenance of Cold Spring, please send to Lopez Civic Association, P.O. Box 100, Lopez, PA and mark your envelope “Cold Spring”. All donations greatly appreciated.
Tony and Patti Sneidar and “Forest”, Philadelphia, spent a few days at their home on Church Street.
Also spending time at their homes on Church Street was TJ and Allison Lowden, Marlton, NJ, and Joe and Diane Fanning and “Molly”, Landenberg. Joe and Diane said a bear, about 350 lbs., crossed the road in front of them as they got almost to their house on Wednesday evening. They also had some deer in the yard while they were here.
Ted and Mary Lowden, Marlton, NJ, are spending some time at their home on Maple Terrace. They had a couple of beautiful, big bucks in their yard one evening. Maybe they will stay there so they can’t be taken during hunting season.
Happy Anniversary to Don and Wilda (Wood) Paul as they celebrate on December 2nd. Have a great day.
HINT: “Need more refrigerator space? Stack gelatin salads and casseroles using cake cooling racks or trays. Plastic glasses can help adjust the height.” (With the holidays coming and friends over, this may be useful. Probably can be used for other salads, etc. also.) To make a kitchen look more cheerful, add healthy plants or a small herb garden on the windowsill.
The Civic Association still has some Lopez sweatshirts and t-shirts in stock. They make nice Christmas gifts. For more information, colors and pricing, contact me at the info below. There are a few Lopez mugs available.
There will be NO Civic meeting in the month of December because of the Christmas holiday. January, February and March are “iffy”, so watch the Sully for further details.
I want to wish everyone a Happy Thanksgiving and hope you have a nice day with family, relatives, and friends. Think of those who are serving our Country who won’t make it home for the Holiday. Pray that they are kept safe during these turbulent times and that everyone will be able to live without fear.
That’s the news for now. Enjoy your week. Hope those weathermen have the forecast right for theHoliday. Don’t eat too much, but enough. 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. Thanks for reading and I’ll be here next time.
