Corning,NY Hometown Heroes Banners

Better known to Lindley folks as "Mike". A community minded resident indicated that if I'd do the paper work, she would make the donation for the photo of a local resident to added to the Corning, N,Y. Gaffer District Home Town Heroes banner project. Mike was a POW in WWII, so we decided that it should be him. An article that I saw said there are 60 banners on Bridge and Market St. They are nicely done and a great addition to the Corning streets. Check it out when you visit Corning.

Please send Jim/Sandy Lundgren a note of cheer.

Good afternoon—Jim’s daughter ,Tara, reports on the Magee Caring Bridge site that Jim had the needed surgery and is back at the Magee Rehab. Center. From all indications,Jim’s recovery still has a ways to go. A cherry note from friends and neighbors will brighten his days. Tara has posted his address on one of her  Caring Bridge notes. If you would like to send a card to Jim , his address is : Magee Rehabilitation Hospital 1513 Race Street, Philadelphia Pa 19102. Attn: Jim Lundgren , Room # 552 Bed #2.
Keep on fighting Dad! We are right here next to you fighting with you! Tara

Thank You

Thank you to everyone who volunteered their time, donated, attended or participated in someway to the 2 events held in Lindley on  Sunday May 18th.  Everyone seemed to enjoy a visit with old friends and neighbors on a pleasant Sunday afternoon.  I am sure members of the Military Services appreciated the recognition of the time they served their country . The Fire Department reported that all the Chicken from their Bar-Be- Que was sold out which was rewarding to them for all the services they provide  Lindley residents.  It was good to see community spirit alive and well in the town. and  The Tioga County,Pa Honor Guard have indicated that they will be back for their 7th year in 2015 to share in honoring our Military men and women, . We appreciate their commitment and service to Veterans and look forward to seeing them next year

Pettigrove School Follow -up

It is always rewarding when someone takes the time to fill in blanks in the Town Historian files.
       Following the article on the Pettigrove Grove, Larry Gorges supplied the following information from articles in the "Evening Leader" .
          September 2nd, 1941, the Pettigrove School will close since there are less than five students. The students will be sent to the Spencer Hill School District in Caton.
          February 10,1948, there was an article concerning the fire which destroyed the Schoonover Home. The Schoonover family would re-locate to the closed Pettigrove School -thanks to the efforts of Doris and Mabel.
          From these  articles, it would seem the Pettigrove School remained closed after 1941 and the district was one of the 59 separate school districts consolidated into the Corning/Painted Post School Area District  in 1954.
Thus --  the  consolidation ended the era of one room schools in the many local townships and villages.
