Exchange Club seeks grant

Thursday, August 9, 2012 by AL RECKER Special to The Press in Local News

The Northampton Exchange Club is pursuing a $10,000 grant from a local nonprofit marketing company.

If approved, the money will be used to provide image makeover services.

The grant would show local organizations that the Exchange Club is interested in continuing to reach out to the community, individuals and worthy causes.

In other business at a recent meeting, the club decided to form a new committee called the orientation committee.

Robert Correll and John Mckenzie co-chair the committee and look for additional club members willing to serve.

Cherryville postmaster retires after 26 years

"Neither snow nor rain nor heat nor gloom of night stay these couriers from the swift completion of their appointed rounds," according to the motto of the U.S. Postal Service.

Retirement, however, can point the couriers in new directions.

Such is the case for Cherryville Postmaster Jane Fried, who retired July 31 after more than 26 years with the post office.

As postmaster, she ran the office and worked with customers.
