Around Town

We received an email this week from Karen Massaro: “I would like to offer my gratitude to the members of Johnstown’s United Methodist Church
Around Town

for all their hard work in organizing their annual Turkey Dinner,” Karen wrote. “I’m on oxygen now 24/7. If I’m not at home, I use a portable unit. Just as I walked in to the church my battery went dead! I panicked! I asked someone if I could just pick up two meals and leave.

“I was told that they weren’t quite ready yet. My panic level was getting higher. I finally asked if there was anyone that might bring out our meals to the car since I had a power cord out there. Right about then, my meals were ready and I was on my way back to the car. Huffing and puffing along the way. Thank you to all of you that had offered help, it was GREATLY appreciated. All of you do this every year and I know how much we appreciate your efforts of bringing this to the community.”

We couldn’t agree more! Thanks Karen, for saying what we all think.

Do you know a young person in our community who demonstrates service above self? A teen who values truth, fairness, building friendships, and cares for others? Nominate them to be considered as a Teen Impact Award recipient. Winners will be recognized at a banquet on March 14. Nominations need to be in by December 14. You can nominate a kid by going to: https://tinyurl.com/JMRotary.

Finally, it’s the season of thanks and we want to take a minute and say that we (Matt and Lesli) are thankful for you, the readers of the Breeze. Many of you have been subscribers for generations and we are honored to be a part of your lives, your families and your stories.

Members of the JM Post (Clint Tweden, Scotti Zahn and Jerry Eldred) presented the colors during a flag ceremony honoring Veterans at Elwell Elementary on November 9. The event was just one of several in the communities marking Veterans Day and honoring the men and women who have served our country. Got a picture for Page 3? An item for Around Town? We and our readers would love to see them. Send them to [email protected]. Photo provided by Scotti Zahn
