Did you ever wonder why...
in the state of PA, you must wear your
seatbelt while riding in a car, but motorcyclists can choose whether or not
to wear a helmet?
it is rude for men to wear their hats
inside a building, but it's ok for women to do so?
it is polite to wait until everyone is
served before beginning to eat so that the first person(s) food is cold?
12 year olds need bike helmets and 13 year
olds do not?
What is it you wonder about?
There are a lot of activities going on
this weekend. Saturday begins with the Pet Blessing at the Port Allegany
UMC parking lot. Bring your pets! Bring your donations to the SPCA! Just

The Woodcarvers will be on the Town
Square. That always promises to be a good time. I hear the Women's Club
will be selling sloppy joes...sounds yummy! I'm not sure what all is
scheduled, but I'm sure its worth checking out!
There will also be a benefit for Nate and
Cassie Howard, from 4 to 8 ...it will be held at the Veterans Memorial

Not sure when the warmer weather will kick
in...probably serves us right for complaining about the hot weather. I
guess that was me doing all the complaining. Some people enjoy the warm
We had lunch with the GSE team from
Pakistan today. What wonderful people they are! Also visiting at our
Tuesday Rotary meeting was Dr. Akhtar from Bradford...another very nice
person. The Rotarians always thank me for my presence and my support...but
I owe them a big thank you for the opportunities my participation with their
club allows....all the nice people I would have otherwise not met...like the
GSE teams and Rotary Exchange students...the good meals provided by the
staff at the Moose, the friendships with the members of the clubs as well as
their guests and speakers...it's all good!
I also appreciate my association with the
Women's Club...another wonderful group that doesn't get a lot of recognition
for all that they do. There will be a membership event this fall. I hope
women, young and old, will consider attending the kick-off event. The plans
are not yet final...but I'm sure it will be a fun-filled, relaxing event.
Sunday is Father's Day. I have a pretty
special father...so do my kids! We're very lucky! Don't forget to let the
special men in your life know how much they mean to you!
