HAPPY ANNIVERSARY/BIRTHDAY --- Not sure which is the correct term when celebrating the age of a building. The stone side of the Greene Academy was 230 years old this year. Due to Covid we were unable to celebrate the significance of this historic building. Exact year of this vintage photo is unknown at this time. (courtesy Greene County Historical Society and Museum)

"Our debt to the heroic men and valiant women in the service of our country can never be repaid. They have earned our undying gratitude. America will never forget their sacrifices."

-Harry S. Truman, April 1945

On this Memorial Day, we pause to remember those men and women who paid the ultimate sacrifice in service of our country. May their memory never be forgotten.

COVERED BRIDGE FESTIVAL - CARMICHAELS -- Well it's the end to another great Covered Bridge Festival at the Greene Academy.

The excitement of the morning and better part of the afternoon was the sighting of a small black bear by the Covered Bridge.

While setting up things outside around 8:30 a.m., we were warned about a bear coming down North Market Street toward the Academy -- it stopped on the road to Covered Bridge and then ran up through the back yard of the stone house into the trees.

As of 2 p.m. we were told it had not been caught and the Game Warden was still around the area looking for it. And don't know if they ever did find it.

So be careful when you're outdoors and be aware of your surroundings.

See everyone at the Christmas Craft Show at the Greene Academy, November 10 & 11 (more info on this to come)
