PRATTSVILLE – Thank you to all our medical professionals in private and volunteer facilities and essential workers. We need you.

One who was the recipient of our medical professionals is Tony Marsh. He is now regaining his strength after getting his medical “gadgets” inserted and is looking forward to a full recovery and a return to his very active life. Tony has always been an avid deer hunter and loves riding his motorcycle. Here’s to a good and healthy life Tony.

Plans are being formed for the Annual Easter Egg Hunter at Young’s Ace Hardware in Prattsville. Every year the Young Family opens their establishment to our area’s youngsters for a boisterous Easter Egg Hunt. The American Legion Auxiliary Virgil E. Deyo Unit 1327 will host this party and all are welcome. It is suggested that the younger children be accompanied by their parents, of course, to make sure they get their share of colored eggs. The Easter Bunny has been invited to put in an appearance and am sure she will be there. Adults are invited to put on their Bunny Ears or masks and give the children something to smile at. The Easter Egg Hunt will take place on the Saturday before Easter, March 30, starting at 11 AM. Just in case, stay tuned to our local media outlets for any adjustments to the previous information.

Update on David Rikard’s son Jamison. Dave said, “He reports spending a lot of time in the field, as in the mud. But sometimes, they can sleep in the back of the truck! Hey, I told him it is not the Cub Scouts.” No, it is not but we are so thankful to Jamison that he has the character to serve in our military. Know Greene County Veterans Agency has asked that we send St. Patrick’s Day cards to our local veterans in area nursing homes and you should include Jamison on that list. His address is: Jamison Rikard, CMR 411 Box 5159, APO, AE 09112.
