Boss - Tony Bassi
by – the employees of EZY Stop, Williamstown
The employees of Ezy Stop would like to nominate our boss, Tony Bassi for the special valentine. He took over Ezy Stop here in Williamstown three years ago, leaving his family (which made it hard on his wife and children) to make this business successful for his family and the community.
Boy Scout Troop 712 and Cub Scout Pack 318 participated in Scout Sunday at Williamstown Christian Church on Feb 6. All scouts were encouraged to wear their scout uniform to their own church and/or participate in their own church’s Scout Sunday program.
The Boy Scouts of America annually celebrates its founding on Feb. 8, 1910, based on the program started by Lord Baden Powell in England on Aug. 1, 1907. Scout Sunday was added to the Scout celebration in the middle 1940s. Scout Sunday is always the Sunday preceding Feb. 8, unless the date actually falls on Sunday.
I would like to nominate my son-in-law as my special valentine. Estell Hatter is a husband and father and housekeeper. He is disabled because of epilsepsy.
His wife, Melissa, brings in their only income so he babysits his three daughters who are in school, plus a 4-year-old son and a 1 ½-year-old little boy. Estell also looks after his 19-year-old son who is slightly mentally challenged.
