LaVern would like folks to know that she is off to visit her family's ancestral home in New York for a week. In the meantime, I'm taking over the column for one more week, and I hope you enjoy the news. LaVern and her two sons, Jerry and Ron, will be going to Cranberry Lake, NY, where her extended family is having the 150th celebration on last Saturday of the construction of the Cranberry Lake Dam. Her great grandfather, Hugh McConnell, was in charge of building it in 1867.
