Parents are Miranda Briggs and Curtis Martin and joins sibling Dean, 8; Kinsley, 6 and Addison, 3. Grandparents are Connie Briggs and EJ Sherman and Daryl Smith.

Janet Brainerd is home from her winter stay with son Georgie and families. Janet is doing as much as can be expected during these enforced stay at home orders. Janet said it was so quiet after spending so much time with younger family members that she had to call around for company. Georgie is a mechanic and is in big demand right now with all the extra freight being moved around and is out of state for job duties. Thank you Georgie for seeing that we are kept well stocked.

Debbie and Jim Dymond’s daughter Cortney and husband TJ and their son Aaron have moved into their new home on Route 145. They moved from a mobile home to a three bedroom house and so far have extra space. With a little one that will soon change.
