Happy 82nd, 'Buck'

Happy 82nd birthday to Martin "Buck" Harsh.

His sister, Betty, shared a story his mother, Effie, told about the day Buck was born:

When it was time, they called Dr. Zimmerman. He came just in time to help deliver Buck. The snow was deep. When Dr. Zimmerman got into his car to leave, it was stuck. Neighbors came to his rescue, helped to shovel him out and get him on his way.

Buck is now enjoying retirement and his new great-grand-triplets.

61st anniversary

Helen and Ray Potter will be married 61 years on Feb. 21.

Along with their family, they will be celebrating their anniversary at the Dutch's Daughter Restaurant in Frederick, Md., Friday.


The Potters have four children, 12 grandchildren and 18 great-grandchildren. They moved from Baltimore and "retired" to Williamsport more than four years ago and live at Springfield Farms.

They said they enjoy living in Washington County and being part of the Williamsport community and are members of Rehoboth United Methodist Church.
