Nevertheless, they made time in their busy day to honor the memory of Lorraine Stripp, to whom this year’s walk was dedicated.
Promptly at 10 a.m. the main group of walkers set out to do their three-mile stroll from the Inlet Town Hall to Drake’s restaurant along Route 28, but no walker was in danger because they proceeded on the newly constructed Elaine Townsend Trail. Continue reading

I would like to thank the personnel of the Old Forge Fire Department and Ambulance Corp for the valiant efforts and help they provided to Diane and our family during our recent crisis. A special thanks to Dan Rivet and Father Shane Lynch—two men we are so fortunate to have living in our community.
It’s been said so many times before, but it is very true, we are so blessed to be part of such a caring and compassionate community.
Thank you to all for your calls, cards and kind words of support.
