Thanks to Doris Cervola for this Joe Vanik update. He is at Pleasant Manor, apartment 19. "Joe has a great sense of humor, likes his cigars and gives the women a run," Doris tells me. “He does a lot of walking with his neat walker. Joe will be going to California soon since his brother is there."

Liz and Jeremy Anderson were to be married June 24 in Yosemite National Park in California. With the COVID-19 virus and all, things were moved to Presque Isle in Erie and they got married last Saturday as Carrie Stec officiated. Liz, a teacher and former volleyball assistant coach, won't have to change her driver's license or any cards since she's still an Anderson. As her mom Vicki says, "she's keeping her maiden name."
