May 8, 2019                                                                  CONGRATULATIONS TO BILL McKECHNIE
Hey folks forgive me but I am sitting here just bursting with pride. Today, my Grandson Daniel Murphy, who is a 4.0 student and a 1st team All American at Tufts University in MA. and Captain of his Lacrosse team, just won the Division Three Lacrosse championship by beating Williams University 17 to 16 in overtime. Yesterday in the Semifinals they also won in overtime. Now they go to the national Championships. He is a great kid, and this is a great way to end his career at Tuft's. Just wanted to share my glee with friends.

March 13, 2019                                                                         HAPPY ANNIVERSARY TO A LOVELY COUPLE

Thanks to Exec. Sec't'y' John Giangrasso for bringing this to our attention.
