Liberty - March 30


Hello: It's Fran DeFilippi Kurpil…I'm so happy to be feeling Spring days. Now I need to get outside and rake. I was out there this morning and was greeted by two beautiful deer. They are so friendly and don't scare as I try to shoo them away. I'd better get to Agway for something to keep them from eating my little sprouting bulbs.

Liberty Library: Tuesday, April 13th…Library vote and Trustee Election will take place at the Library from 11 a.m. to 8 p.m. If community members have not yet visited our newly renovated library, this would be a chance to do so. All voters in Liberty School district are eligible to vote. It is a great way to support our local library. When Marjorie Lynko gave me a tour awhile back, I was truly amazed at the expanded space and great organized spaces for computer use, searching and spending time, plus the convenient parking area in back for book drop-off and entry. Please mark your calendar....Support our Library.

Serendipity Family Restaurant: I was looking forward to getting my masked face out a bit and was so happy to stop at this new eatery that I had written about. Just walking in the door…you see a beautifully presented dining room, obviously a professional job. My love of interior decorating aside! I met smiling Anthony Williams, the owner and his chef, Yuleika DeJusus and her sister who were busy cooking but not too busy to welcome me so warmly with appreciation of my previous column that is framed on their wall. My husband was home waiting for some soup…omg, the most delicious cream of broccoli and cheese soup was actually gifted to me. If hugs were only possible!! I grabbed a menu and will get back soon for sure. God bless these young professional people. Stop by and greet them. They have new hours: Lunch: 12 p.m. to 3 p.m. Dinner: 5 p.m. to 10 p.m. Pick up a menu…so many great choices. Welcome again…you are a wonderful working tribute to the original business of the same name, on Liberty Main Street.

John Liddle: Thank you John for the updates on the State programs to help those tenants who have trouble keeping up with their rent during covid. These folks should have relief coming their way next month. Those eligible will be able to have back rent paid directly to their landlord. Stay tuned…John says “there is money coming available for landlords and homeowners to improve their properties”…this will be the big push that he will bring to the Unite For Liberty Group in weeks ahead. I hope this good news brings people out to the next meeting at the Senior Center. Date will be announced.

Liberty Museum: Robert Dadras, President, said the museum will be reopening this summer with over a dozen events, many outside. I've heard great remarks about the present window display of antique bicycles.

A Time For Prayer: Hopefully our Seder/Passover time will bring a time of peace and good will. If my seventh child (a neighbor - Herb Grund) is out there he will remember sharing his Jewish holidays with our Catholic kids. Then our Easter this year will end a long, difficult Lent. Keep praying that Country and World issues will improve, so turning on the TV won't be a sad story.

A Local Sad Story: May the good Lord help our Eric Bradley from our Sanitation Department who was seriously injured while working when he was hit by a vehicle on Chestnut Street. We are with you and your family, Eric. God bless.

Bye for now. My Liberty column is every other Tuesday. I am happy to include suggestions. Send me an email.
