We send our deepest sympathy to Pamela Gregory Cronk, whose husband, Shawn Cronk, passed away on Aug. 23. They were in the process of building a new home on Stage Road and moving back to Delmar.
A World Trade Center survivor will speak at Asbury Methodist Church, located behind the Salisbury University, Saturday, Sept. 21, starting at 7 p.m. Admission will be $2. As he was coming down the stairs from his 42nd-floor office, he passed firemen coming up. When he finally reached the revolving doors to walk out, he heard a crack of thunder and when he looked up he saw the tower coming down and saw a light. To find out what that light was, you will have to attend the service. I would recommend getting there early.
