This seems to be the month for milestone celebrations. Ann Benedict celebrated her 90th birthday. Father John Terzano celebrated his 60th birthday on July 14th. Jerry and Gloria Ritch were married forty years ago on July 15th at Saint Hillary’s Catholic Church. Our best wishes to all.

Former resident Don Schmidt is currently in Afghanistan as part of his work with the non-profit Morningstar Development. This group is providing assistance primarily to young women and projects include a medical clinic, a community center, and an education center.

If you get a chance stop in the Township Hall to see the photos Bob Brunswick recently added to the collection throughout the building. The Hall Committee has been collecting old photos depicting the history of the corner. Once again, the framing is just beautiful.

When shopping for gifts please remember our local businesses. Log Cabin Gallery and Elements Gallery have a wonderful selection of items created from area artists. Crooked River Herb Farm has great selection for the gourmet cook and well as other offerings. For the gardener, Heritage Farms has every color of daylily imaginable and the Downtown Emporium has all kinds of collectibles.

And on a personal note, congratulations to my brother, Mike Zorena, on his retirement. Mike retired as a lieutenant on the Bath Police Department where he was employed for thirty-six years. Mike lived in both the township and village before moving to Bath. Family and friends celebrated on July 20th at Houston Hall in Norton.
