Last Saturday, Darlene and Chuck Mack took a bike ride to Brockway to see Fran Faith. Her husband was the late Paul Faith who was a state policeman, who also played Santa Claus. Their son Emory is now a state policeman stationed in Ridgway. Daughter Paula lives up near Buffalo and son Brad, a chef in Missouri.

Jeff Zajac has worn a few hats in his life, from baseball caps to road worker helmets. Now he's a farmer, at least he's taking care of two cows at his mom's place in Columbus. He rings a bell for them to come home, unless he loses them or they are hiding on him. Their names are T Bone and Porterhouse. He also bales hay and is almost ready to bring in the corn.

The Kim Kuzma Softball Tournament raised $9,925.95 this year, the most money taken in. Not only that but it raised $700 to go toward Caleb Hultman's funeral expenses.

Sorry I missed seeing Scottie Frisina when he was home from Miami for a few days. He did play three rounds of golf at North Hills.

Rec football practice has started with the first game tentatively scheduled for Aug. 15. Corry will play all of its games at home. There are eight teams in the league including newcomers North East and Tri-Boro.

Sympathy to the family and friends of Susan Daniels and Karla "Giz" Cochran.

Gayle Cone’s birthday is Aug. 3. If you can, please send her a card at Arbor Grove Village, Room 310, Memory Care Unit, 1021 E. Central Ave., Greensburg IN 47240.

A spaghetti dinner benefit will be held on Sunday, Aug. 9, at the Corry American Legion to help the family with the funeral expenses for Layla. The admission is adults $10, kids $6 for 11 and under. It's hosted by Stephanie Martin, Lori Peru, Emily Mitchell and Kyra Trinity-Ann. There will be tickets, raffles  and auctions.

It was Christmas in July for Shannon Eshelman. Even though her wedding was postponed a year, she now has a new car.

Special thanks to DT for giving me the Aero-Gram magazine from 1945 that included photos of both my grandfather (Fred Hannan) and uncle (Jim Hannan), who was also my godfather.

Craig "Red" Culver has new car, but he still has an Erie Blades license plate on the front bumper.

Happy birthday tomorrow to Susan Lynn Crawford, Monday to Paula Carey and Alissa Hodak and Tuesday to John Styborski. Belated wishes to Rachel Volk (now 21) and Deb Hamilton Harrington (older than 21).

Happy 49th anniversary yesterday to Pam and Steve Mennen, and thanks for making Augie's a Corry cornerstone.

I missed out but Pat Catalfu tells me they had a big Johnny's Lunch event during the shutdown week at Corry Manufacturing Company. Seventy hot dogs and 70 cheeseburgers.

Several local golfers played in a Hope on Horseback benefit at Mound Grove Golf Course. They included Theresa Williams, Dottie Morgan, Jane Jones, Scooter Grice, Scott Bailey and Nick Greer.

Finally, Panama all-star quarterback Gerrit Hinsdale recently signed his national letter of intent to play football and continue his academic career at Washington & Jefferson College.
