Summer has finally arrived along with a lot of blackflies and gnats. Also really heavy downpours and thunderstorms. The foliage is really heavy whereever you travel, and wildflowers are in full bloom. The road crews have been busy with washouts.

So many graduation parties over the weekend. Congratulations as you start your new life away from high school.

David Cleveland was taken to Glens Falls Hospital where he will spend a few days for testing. Rollin Swinton was able to come home on Friday only to be taken back to Glens Falls on Saturday. More testing also for him. Lucy Persons had cataract surgery on Monday. She is still in rehab at Tri-County. Muriel LaPointe was able to come home after being in Glens Falls Hospital.

Sorry to hear that Mulvena Russell, Bill Durkin and Jordan Steele passed away recently. Remember the families in prayer and thoughts.

Alonzo Conlon and sons, Aaron and Ian enjoyed spending the weekend with friends near Boonville.

This time of year, with school coming to a close for the summer, I think of the time when I spent at District Number 7 on the Edwards Hill Road. Fred and I went to school with Gene and Gerie Morehouse’s children and Shirley Andres and some of Carl and Merna Cleveland’s children. They all left to go to JCS. Mom and Dad still had Fred and me go to the one room school with teacher Nellie Ross. I will never forget the day Mr. Walton came to tell Mom that the school could no longer be open for only two students. How it broke mom’s heart. So many had attended District Number 7. Mom kept Fred and me home for a week before giving in and letting us attend JCS. Many memories at the small school. How many of us would want to share the dipper with all our class mates now? We all love to read about all the Little School Houses that were in the area.

Happy Birthday to: Mavis Miller, Esther Hill, Elizabeth Nevins, Myrtle Rist, Johnny Houser Jr., Kathy Smith Templeton, Melissa Allen, Eric Persons, Rhonda Coleman Galarza and Amy Russell.

Happy Anniversary to: Greg and Mary Nevins, Bill and Connie Warner, Rollie and Shirley Cleveland, Fred and Ruth Allen, Ed and Debbie Aldous.
