BIG RUN â€” In case you haven't been paying attention, it is almost time for spring to arrive, an occasion that is always trumpeted by the Big Run peepers (frogs).
This year, the peepers are lonely and sad, as their best friend and legendary peeper watcher, John London, passed away Nov. 9, 2012, at his home.
The good news is that his son, Jeff London, owner of Big Run Carpet, said that he will carry on the family tradition of charting and cataloging the escapades and the sounds that the tiny frogs make to announce the beginning of spring.
The Mulberry Square Elder Care and Rehabilitation Center was recently named the recipient of three different awards â€” Excellence in Caregiving, Distinguished Service Award and Excellence in Leadership.
Mulberry celebrated with an employee recognition luncheon as a big thank you to all of the employees.
