The Corry VFW Post 264 is looking for volunteers to help place flags at local cemeteries for Memorial Day. Anyone interested is asked to meet at the Corry VFW or at Pine Grove Cemetery Thursday at 9 a.m. 

Curt VanderSchaaff had a quilt made of his old softball uniforms plus his dad's Clymer town team baseball and his high school baseball uniform. Susan Marrs did a awesome job.

Happy birthday today to Nate Fralick (whose first job was delivering Corry Journals), Rik Huntley (get well soon), Linda Ross Ongley, Brad Sargent, Yvonne Pound and Chandra "Fuzz" Upperman. Faith Sanders, Joe's mom, celebrates on Friday along with Jack Cummings. Belated 50th birthday wishes to Amy Nedreski (nice signs in your yard).

Karen and Gary Whiteley celebrated their 37th anniversary, Lucas and Nicole (Cummings) Marsh No. 19.

Sympathy to Jen Lesher on the passing of her dad, Bill Eicenlaub of Erie. He was also the father-in-law of former CAHS teacher and coach Steve Nalepa.

The Corry American Legion is holding a chicken BBQ this Sunday from 11 a.m. to 4 p.m. with Chris Faulkner and Nate Kornikoski in charge. There also will be Emily Sue's brownies. No pre-orders, just form a line.

Jake Rhodes, son of Clymer's Greg Rhodes and Corey Rhodes' nephew, won the president's scholar athlete award at Hillside College in Michigan. Jake was a team captain on the baseball team with .974 fielding percentage with eight doubles and five homers. Greg graduated from Clymer Central in 1980.

Jean VanTassel reports that they will be opening up the Farmers Market once they receive the regulations from the state.

Corry's AA speaker meeting will reopen this Friday with social distancing. It's at 8 p.m. at St. Paul's Lutheran Church.

You've probably seen 2020 Metro Erie Chapter Pennsylvania Sports Hall of Famer Tom Jakubowski either in the paper or on TV. He was an accomplished coach at McDowell and Gannon, and was chairman of girls softball for District 10. But did you know he used to play for the Corry Marine Bank softball team that played its games where it’s now The Ballpark At Columbus? "Jake" is now retired living in Florida.

Have you completed your 2020 census? If not, why not?
