We start by giving a stand-up salute today to our army of newspaper carriers. No matter the weather, they make sure our subscribers receive their paper on time every single day of the year.
National Carrier Day is set aside to honor their hard work in hand-delivering The Post-Journal to thousands of homes and businesses every morning. On foot or by car, they complete a daily production cycle that starts with a reporter out in the field gathering the news and ends with carriers out in the field delivering it.
And so on this special day, we offer a big thumbs up with thanks for their faithfulness and hard work.
Thumbs up to those who answer the call by the Fenton History Center for volunteers to help with a one-day blitz to move research materials to the new library in Hall House in Jamestown. The move will be made before the end of the month. If you can lend a hand, contact director Joni Blackman at 664-6256.
Speaking of answering calls, here's a thumbs up to the Lakewood Fire Department and a reminder to Lakewood residents of the open house at the fire station on Chautauqua Avenue from 11:30 a.m. to 3:30 p.m. today. There will be demonstrations, tours and, for those who have been thinking of volunteering for their community, a chance to talk with the officers and members of the department.
Take your children - the Lakewood department have planned a family friendly open house.
Did you see the photo of Sheba, a young shepherd mix in Thursday's edition? What a sweetheart. This dog just loves everyone and so is described by the Chautauqua County Humane Society as a social butterfly who loves to go for walks.
Sheba is young, smart and full of energy and would do well with a family that has plenty of time to play and to teach her the obedient things a good dog needs to know. You can visit Sheba where she is awaiting a forever home at the Strunk road Adoption Center and see for yourself whether she might be a good fit. Sheba's adoption fee has been reduced through a grant from the Chautauqua Region Community Foundation.
