Birthday wishes to ‘Charlie’, Laurie Kilgore, Catherine Witt, Beth Weiss, Cathleen Doherty, Hon Cynthia Dolan, Payton Gold, Harper Altman, Olivia, Noah, Leo, Pauly Beluli, Don Simkin, Patty Armstrong, AnnMarie Franklin, Jessica Butler, Ellen Stratton, Hal Coopersmith, Denise Rappaport, and Debra Gabriel.

Anniversary wishes to the Monteleone’s, the Fisher’s, the Cioroiari’s and to Fred and Jose!

Our belated sympathy is extended to John and the family of Theresa Kocijanski.

Once again, VFW Post 5499 and Howard Goldsmith, along with the Veterans, the Firehouse, the Bethel Seniors, and the many local attendees made the Memorial Day Service a very special event. Also in attendance was Kathleen Kropat, Gold Star mother of PFC Jason Kropat, whose life was sacrificed when killed in Afghanistan. Supervisor Sturm and Hon James Farrell spoke respectfully, however when US Navy Sr Chief Joseph Collura took the mic, you heard and felt the regard and honor the day deserved. It’s a privilege to listen to his or the recounting of his comrade’s stories...My advice: Don’t miss the next service. No sale at the mall will come close.
