It’s been almost three months since Paul Melanson has seen the outdoors due to his diabetes problem. But last Thursday, he joined his coffee buddies at the Emo Inn and enjoyed himself tremendously catching up on the latest news.
He also attended mass Thursday morning at St. Patrick’s, which also was a pleasant sight for the parishioners. We all wish Paul the best of health in the future.

Sorry for the error and any inconvenience.
