Out Lexington Way

Written By The Mountain Eagle on 4/17/24 | 4/17/24

By Christine Dwon

I would like to express my deepest appreciation to Mike Ryan for the very touching article he wrote about my husband, Lawrence Dwon, “The Marine and the Hummingbirds,” in the April 12 issue of the Windham Weekly.  Larry has been selected to receive this year’s Greene County Memorial Veteran Award May 18.  The ceremony will be at 10 a.m. at the Catskill Point.  Mike’s story is a tribute to Larry’s dedication to country, community and family.  Paul, Liza, Abby and Matthew, Katelyn, Emma, Olivia and myself are truly grateful for the honor and recognition of Larry’s service to his country as a United States Marine and a Vietnam Veteran.

Carol and Alden Constable had a delightful visit at their home in West Kill last week with their granddaughter Cassandra Constable, Corey Laframboise and one-year old great-grandson Wyatt.  They all enjoyed lunch together and Wyatt had a great time playing with Carol’s and Alden’s dog, Brutus.    After the visit Brutus was worn out from playing with Wyatt and took a long nap. Cassandra, Corey and Wyatt and their dog Harley live in California and drove across country to visit family and will be heading back to their home this week.
