Introducing our new Maintenance Man

The Village of Adelphi has hired a maintenance man.

Introducing John Getz.

John will be working around the village doing many different tasks. If you see him out and about, please take a moment to introduce yourself so he will get to know the village residents.

John grew up just a couple miles south of Adelphi on SR 327.  He is married to Heather (Young) Getz and has a son, Bryan Seth, who will be graduating from high school this year.  John independently owns and operates a lawn care and landscaping business on the side called ‘Raking it in Lawn Care’.  John says when he’s not working, he likes to spend time with his family.

Stories in the Park- Finale

On Monday July 30th, the final Stories in the Park took everyone to Muddy Boots Farm on Moccasin Road where Tammy Speakman, proprietor, read the children a book called ‘Muddy Paws’ which was about a puppy on a farm.  Muddy Boots Farm was a wonderful place to visit, and to have the end of summer reading program party.

Thanks to Helen Platz for heading up this program, Kingston National Bank for sponsoring it, Tammy Speakman for allowing everyone access to the farm and animals, and all the other featured speakers that presented this year.
