HAPPY 63RD ANNIVERSARY I LOVE LUCY!
Jamestown set the World Grape Stomp record! As a community 1232 people came together to stomp our way into the Guiness World Records. There was support not only from Jamestown citizens but also from different states and countries. With all this support we were able to beat a small town in Spain their record of 977 people. This Guiness world record was not only recorded by local news media, but also national media. The Today show also had a segment of our World Record.
If you were part of a group of 10 or more people who registered for the Grape Stomping, the commemoritive posters should be available for pick up next week. Every group will be notified when they can pick theirs up.
We were considering a home purchase in the Chautauqua Lake area and had a handful of homes that we wished to see. Richard had previously set up a search protocol for us. He arranged to meet with us on a Saturday (we are out of state) to review our search criteria and time line as well as visit the homes on our list. We were able to narrow our focus and will seriously pursue the search later this year with his assistance.Karen Weikart
