Tonina and Mario Derosa and son Joseph of Astoria, and nephew Francesco Fortuna of Commack, Long Island spent a long weekend with her sister, Filomena Riviello on Garnet Lake Road.
Charlotte Needham recently spent a week with her grandsons in Colchester, Vt. before returning to her Sky High Road home and ever more and larger garden vegetables to prepare for the winter months.
Nancy and Terry Beadnell have had a very nice visitor for a while at their River Road home. Their grandson Brandon Beadnell, 7, son of Luke Beadnell, has enjoyed some of his summer vacation doing fun things with grandma and grandpa - going fishing and exploring - plus spending time with his dad. Brandon has had to return to Livermore, Maine to begin his school year.
Jeff Grants is back at his South Johnsburg Road home after a recent kidney operation at the Glens Falls Hospital. He is recuperating, and doing a lot of "nothing" - so he says - as he is used to being very active. He expects to be back to speak at the Kenyon Town Methodist Church Sunday, Aug. 22, at 11 a.m. He also wants to thank everyone for the cards and prayers during this time.
