FYI: Donna & Ed Huber would like to share with Lakeside Terrace neighbors the latest update on Audrey Calhoun of 25 Lakeview Dr. received from her daughter Diana
"Mom was in the hospital again and was sent to Rochester for another stint placed in her pancreas. She had become jaundiced again and very ill.She is home again, and people may reach her at: 1003 Spruce Street, Olean,
New York 14760 (in care of me: Diana Calhoun). Mom seems to be in good
spirits and we have a lot of terrific people out there praying for her. She is eating, and we hope to have a family picnic in a couple of weeks. She tells everyone "hello" and all of you have been angels. Thank you for all being so close in thoughts and prayers.".
Word was received from Ft. Wayne, Indiana, that former Lakeside Terrace resident Irene Brunner passed away. The mailing envelope was dated July 2nd and the note said that Irene was on Hospice care.
Since Bingo has ended there hasn't been very much food to go to the Leesburg Food Bank. The basket and tub in the laundry room are checked weekly.
Also, the food bank will take donations of canned or pouches of dog and cat food. Sometimes people with pets don't have leftovers or scraps.
Lakeside Terrace residents Walt & Mary Karwasinski are the proud aunt & uncle of park ranger Fred Baker, who recently helped to save three people boating on the upper Niagara River. Read all about it in the article below:
Reef saves boater from falls disaster
By Mike Kurilovitch
NIAGARA FALLS - It will be an expensive lesson for a St. Catherines, Ont. man
whose motorboat got grounded on a reef off the eastern tip of Goat Island on Sunday.
But it could have been a lot worse.
The man his young daughter and his girlfriend were taking a cruise on. the upper
Niagara River on Sunday afternoon when they entered the danger zone above Niagara Falls, where boating is prohibited.
"He had no clue where he was," said a New York State Parks Police officer, noting that had the boat not become hung up on the sandbar, it would have been in the rapids within seconds.
The Parks Police rescue boat was deployed. However, a park maintenance worker and a park ranger managed to get a rope to the stranded boaters to pull their vessel into shore before tlie rescue boat could arrive.
All on board were unharmed; police said.
The operator was charged with reckless operation and endangering the welfare of a child. He also faces a hefty bill for having his boat removed from the tricky currents at Goat Island. Parks Police said they would probably have to enlist a crane or similar type equipment to remove the boat.
This year the 4th of July brought a special little firecracker to Jean Smith, her first great grandchild, a little boy who will be called "Hitch" congratulations Jean.
