Where are the signs? Nancy Dobey has asked to please return any yard sign or banner you may still have in your possession. She said she has most of the yard signs and a couple of the banners, but is still missing some of each. If you have a yard sign and/or banner, please take it to Nancy's house - 1126 Maple Avenue -- or call her at 836-6689 or 255-4050 (cell) to make arrangements for her to pick it up. If you bring a sign to her house, she asks that you put it on the back porch behind the house with a note indicating who returned it (in case she is not home when you come by). If you have any questions, please call Nancy at either phone number Thank you!

I just became a great aunt for the second time. My niece Lucy gave birth to a baby boy. His name is Arlo George Henry Sheehan. It’s a very long name but they were naming him after several family members. Cindy Weintraub
