Wright - Cromwell News 01.24.13
By: Jennie K. Hanson, Pine Journal
It seems that when folks get together they usually get around to talking about the weather. This happens on long distance phone calls, when emailing each other, or just a brief visit in passing. Well, this week we really had something to talk about. With temps in the minus-20s, even schools were closed or running two hours late. Luckily, many area schools were already closed for Martin Luther King Jr. Day Monday, so we didn’t miss that day due to extreme cold temperatures. Let’s hope that we can get through this cold spell with very few problems.
Another longtime resident of Cromwell died this past week. Our sincere sympathy to the family of Edward (Ed) Johnson, 83, of Cromwell who died Thursday, Jan. 17, 2013, in Villa Vista Care Center. A Mass of Christian Burial was held Jan. 22 at Immaculate Conception Catholic Church in Cromwell. Burial will take place in the spring in Forest Hill Cemetery in Cromwell.
The next Wrong Days meeting will be Feb. 12 at the fire hall at 7 p.m. We need ideas and volunteers to make the 48th Wrong Days a yearly event.
