Remsen News: June 22 to 28


It was a nice hot day last Wednesday as we were out traveling the roads on our day off. I was jealous of Owen Piaschyk, who spent the day at Water Safari with his class for their end of the year trip.

John Secor enjoyed fishing last weekend at a friend’s camp. He ‘out-fished’ our friend and is looking for more of that same lucky lure! We enjoyed lake trout for dinner on Monday evening, and he even cooked it!

A nice group of horse ladies enjoyed dinner out at Johnny B’s tavern in Floyd. We all enjoyed our meal and they took good care of us there. It looks like the next couple of summer get-togethers will be a covered dish. It is nice to sit outside during the summer month, as well as saving a few dollars.

My veterinarian got me and my pooch in as I was waiting for a cancellation to be seen sooner than my late in the year appointment. Apparently, you don’t procrastinate when you get that reminder card. Besides all the usual stuff it was determined that he now has anaplasmosis - a tick borne disease that there is no vaccine for yet. He is dutifully taking his antibiotics and didn’t seem to have symptoms. He should be fine. I am very glad they got us in!

The pre-Father’s day event that took place at Adirondack Mountain Sports looked like a fun time. The big winner of the raffle prize package was Fitz Hardiman. Congrats!

Congratulations go out to the Remsen Central School class of 2022 valedictorian Paige Loveric and salutatorian Abbie Barton, along with the rest of the graduating class. I see graduation has moved to a Friday night celebration. Stay safe all you students!

Congratulations also go out to Al and Linda Heywood on their retirement from the flower and plant shop that we all enjoy each spring. Their blueberries will still be available later in the summer. They have worked hard at this flower business and deserve the rest. I am sure travel will be on the agenda to visit kids and grandkids.

My friend Brenda and I took a road trip to the Amish produce stand in Steuben to visit the new foals that have arrived at the Troyer farm. It was a fun trip to see the livestock there. There are even some cute kittens.

Burlie Pugh, at age 102, attended the 108th alumni reunion this past Saturday at Remsen School. She has attended for the past 50 years and even made an appearance on Channel 2 news. There were many others in attendance from near and far. I know the committee works hard every year to make this happen.

I hope everyone did something special for dad this past weekend. I know there is or was a chicken barbecue in Barneveld.

I would like to wish a happy birthday to two of my grandsons, Brian Secor, who will turn 16 on June 30 and Owen Piaschyk, who will be 12 on June 25. How time flies!

Have a great week everyone!
