Hope mothers everywhere were treated in some special way this past Sunday. My family joined the Gloads for a meal at Butcher Block.
A special performance held at the local school recently, was "Wit." This is a powerful story of a cancer patient played by Leslie Hearn, who gave an outstanding performance. This was a different experience for those in attendance as we were all up on the stage with the actors, putting us in closer contact with the whole story. Great job by all the cast, and half of the profits went to High Peaks Hospice program.
Mark your calendars for Wednesday, May 18 to vote for the school budget. A great educational program is provided for our students, but we need to pass the budget. Great pride that some of our local children on the a bowling team this year did very well in the NYS Bowling Tournament held recently in Plattsburg. A local team "the Crazy" took first place in the section 5 class C and will now go on to the next level in Syracuse. Congratulations to Jesse Hearn who won a $500 Scholarship for college.
Welcome back to town Brad & Bobbie Paye, Ruth Young, Lucille & Harry Little; great to have you back. I had a great visit with Mary Jane & Larry Lee this last Sunday. We have some very proud grand- and great-grandparents in town as they welcome new babies into their families. Arlene Mason told me of twins born to grandson J.P. Mason over in Vermont. They are Kendra Lillian Mason and Keegan Franklin Mason. Richard and Ulla McCray's son, Roger, and family also had a new baby boy born recently, Logan McCray. Sorry to hear Bob Huestis ended back up in the hospital and hope he is able to return home soon. Our sympathy is extended to the family of Marie Ori as she passed away very suddenly this past week.
