Dorothy Wotus was well known in Corry. She was involved in many things, especially St. Thomas Church. She’s now at Paramount Senior Living, 100 Knoedler Road, Room 104, PIttsburgh, PA 15236, if her friends want to send her a card. She’s also available on her cellphone. A mini-bus came to visit her with Father Skip Davis and Deacon Bill Saborsky. Dorothy’s son, John, is helping her sell the house on Grand Street. 

John retired last month but is still an official for track, cross country and swim meets. The Thiel College grad is already planning on coming back to town for his 50th reunion next June. The Associated Spring-Barnes Group bowling league is meeting Wednesday, Aug. 21, at Bowl-Aire Lanes at 6:30 p.m. They are looking for bowlers (guys and gals) or full teams. Skill level is not important. The Wednesday morning women’s league is looking for ladies (40 and older). Contact Tammy Davis.
Richard Skalos is home from his trip 2,457 miles, 14 days and eight states plus Washington, D.C. He also got to Rhode Island. Now he needs two other states and that will be all 50 states that he's visited. "I disappointed Gary Pike as he asked me to stop and visit President Trump but due to my schedule, I did not have time to stop and talk with the president," he explained.
As of tomorrow, one of my classmates from 1969, Dan Clark, will be older than me (68). Dan, who was Corry’s baseball coach and Union City’s head football coach, is back at CAHS as a volunteer football coach.
Deb Parker’s birthday is today and so is Mike Malone’s. Linda VanderSchaaff celebrates on Friday.
Julie Krone has run a lot of miles in a lot of places but now she’s run in Dublin, Ireland. She made it to Guinness and Temple Bar (I was there a few years ago). Krone also checked out Foley's (not Denny's on Johnson Street).
Great to see Tom Gates at the American Legion picnic. Kudos to all those workers, cooks and Jackie the bartender.
Kudos to Ashley Ongley and all the helpers for running Sunday’s “Back to School” event at the Corry VFW. I’m told people were lining up at 9 a.m. even though it didn't start until noon.
We lost one of Corry’s best sports fans with the passing of Roger Hasbrouck. Anyone who knew him liked him. He’ll be missed.
Slim and Red will appear on Thursday at North Hills Golf Course from 7 to 9 p.m.
Get-well wishes to Garrett Culver after his recent accident.
