Arrived home yesterday after a week-long visit with my son Dan and family in Bennington, N.H. While there we took a three day trip to Gettysburg, Hershey Chocolate Park, and on to visit the Liberty Bell. We had a grand time and I so enjoyed the history we observed and could share with my grandsons.
Margaret and Franklin Barton enjoyed the fourth with their adult children and grandchildren. Sunday they joined Brett and Beth Barton, Alicia and Matthew for cake and ice cream to celebrate Matthew's 17th birthday.
Our community was saddened by the death of Candy Howard recently. Our sympathy goes out to her son P.J. and daughter Laurie and their children.
I hope next week I can gather up more news as people return to a normal routine after a busy long weekend.
Enjoy each day as summer is far too short. Wish for more sun and less rain. Less humidity would be fine with me.
