Condolences to the family and friends of Warren Strausser who passed away recently.

Neighbors to Neighbors — that is what we do. Lexington residents have been receiving meals provided by donations from friends or neighbors. The meals are prepared by local restaurants and delivered by local residents.

If you would like to donate $10 for a meal for a friend or neighbor or have questions, please give Peggy Rappleyea a call at 518-989-6491. I recently was a recipient of one of these delicious meals. It was a complete surprise and very much appreciated.

I donated $10 so someone else may receive and enjoy an unexpected meal and know they are thought of by a friend or neighbor.

Do not leave your pets in an unattended vehicles, even with the windows cracked open. Takes a very short period of time, while you run into the store for a “couple of minutes,” for the car to become unbearable and deadly.

Thank you to all the “essential workers” on the front lines keeping us safe, law enforcement, firefighters, EMS, military, doctors, nurses, farmers, teachers, delivery personnel, truck drivers, custodians, pharmacies, store employees, postal workers, the list goes on and on.

Until next week take care, be thankful, humble and kind. We need to treat others with courtesy, respect and kindness. All lives matter.
