SUNNY

From the Issue: 
December 2011
I am fostering a yellow lab that was rescued from North Carolina at a high kill shelter and I was hoping to network for her forever family using the TTN.  Thank you for considering my little foster.

Her name is Sunny, a yellow lab and a recent spay.  She is a gentle lady, under a year old and great with all animals.   She was saved at the last minute by a local rescue and has remained at a vet in a cage since July.  It was originally thought she had found her forever family but unfortunately she had not, so she has had some ups and downs in her short life.

Because of the length of time at the vet/shelter she was up for euthanasia again!  However, I got word of her through a friend on facebook and decided to foster her asap. So, she is now safe but desperately searching for her forever family.  Please forward any and all inquiries to me: mstosez@hotmail.com  I have attached a pic of her...

If you cannot take Sunny into your home, that is okay, just keep her in your thoughts and spread the word. Thank you very much. Michelle Stosez  903 3666.

NEW CARS IN TROY

From the Issue: 
December 2011
When and who received the first new 1946 model automobile in Troy, after the end of WW2, in late 1945?  The answer needs an explanation.  Dr. Emerson made daily house calls in Troy and Fitzwilliam for many years, including after the end of the war.  He drove a 1940 DeSoto coupe, well used.  He was elderly during his last few years, his car had a few dents etc.  Public opinion thought he should get the first new automobile.  George Lepisto had a garage on the Fitzwilliam Road and represented Pontiac and Hudson, Charles Lepisto Sr. had a Chevy sales place on the West side of the common, next to now what is a bank.  Bill Parker had the Dodge and Plymouth sales.

ANOTHER HISTORICAL TIDBIT

From the Issue:

On the old Cracker Jack boxes of goodies we used to snack on as kids was a young man dressed in a blue sailor suit (see insert). Some one at a veteran's event at the newly restored Depot site referred to that uniform as their Cracker Jack uniform. They were our dress blues that we wore on liberty and for official Naval events. Does anyone remember?  One could buy a fitted set of dress blues at a commercial shop that were form fitting and were excepted for liberty, but not on the base at official events. About all I could fit into now would be the sailor hat, much less a skin tight set of custom made dress blues.  On the submarine we laid the blues under the mattress on our bunks to keep them pressed and to make more room in the tiny lockers we had for clothing.  My tour of duty was 1943 - 1946 and I don't remember any reference to a Cracker Jack uniform.

CHESHIRE RAILROAD DEPOT

I hope this finds everyone well shoveled out of our October snow storm.  Before the end of the year I want to thank everyone for all of your support whether it was as a member of the committee, a selectman, a community member or a well wisher from afar.  We have had numerous  groups come by to view and learn about the rail road and the Troy Depot as well as people passing by.  We look forward to sharing with many more in the spring.

    We have put together a DVD of the 175th anniversary of Troy.  Many people still residing here are in the DVD as well as some who have since pasted.  If you are interested in a copy feel free in contacting me at 242-7902.  They are for sale for $15.00 and would make a wonderful  stocking stuffer.   All the proceeds are to benefit the continued efforts to restore and maintain the Troy Railroad Depot.

    Here’s hoping you all have a peaceful and blessed holiday.
