Several streets in Cottonwood are currently being worked on in preparation for a resurfacing project. Side streets west of Lewiston Street from Church Street through Foster Street have had the surfacing removed with some of them, as of Monday, having had some gravel added. Also Pine Street from Church Street to Foster Street has had the surfacing removed and parts of it have had gravel put down. Shown in the photos above are Garrett Street (top photo) with a layer of gravel added and Bash Street (lower photo) which had gravel added later in the day on Monday.

The family of Stan and Bertha Kopczynski have been sending old family photos around during this time of quarantine. Don sent this one with a quote from Will Rogers: "Deep in the heart of everyone is the old town, where they first went barefoot, got their first licken, traded their first pocket knife. They grew up and went away thinking they were too big for that little burg, but that is where your old heart is." The youngsters in the photo from Left to Right are: David Berklund, Connie Kopczynski, Allan Kopczynski, Diane Berklund and Carole Kopczynski. Joan Kopczynski submitted the photo. If anyone else has old photos to share, we will be looking for something to fill the pages of the Chronicle for the foreseeable future as there are few if any  events to report on.
