Former Corry police chief Frank Carnegie is turning 100 years young on May 22. The family had a huge party scheduled for him with many out-of-town guests. That plan was canceled due to the pandemic. Now the plan is a "parade" past his home on North Center Street, across from the cemetery. The Corry police and fire departments, plus friends, will be doing a drive-by salute for him reaching this milestone. Anyone interested in joining the "parade" is asked to meet on White Street at 10:50 a.m. this Friday. If you want to send Frank a card, his address is 1297 North Center Street, Corry, PA 16407.

Nice to see Abby Bowen working in the clubhouse at North Hills Golf Course. The leagues are now underway so things are busy. But there are no tournaments scheduled, according to course Manager Ron Graham. "With the rule of no more than 25 people together, there's nothing we can do at this time," he told me on Thursday.
