Expanded Coplay Community Days welcomes residents of entire Valley

Wednesday, August 15, 2012 by JOHANNA S. BILLINGS in Focus

A group of community organizations are hoping for good weather Aug. 23 - 26.

But, even if it rains, the show will go on.

The "show" is Coplay Community Days, a festival featuring food, live music, contests, games, rides and bingo at Coplay Community Park, Second and Keefer streets, Coplay.

The weather is not expected to be a factor because virtually the entire festival takes place under cover.

Chickens make interesting companions

Someday when I'm gone and others are tasked with settling my estate, the question will be asked: Why did she take so many pictures of chickens?

I suppose most people will understand the logic behind my taking thousands of photos of cats, dogs, butterflies, flowers, sunsets, deer, horses and pretty scenery.

But chickens?

I've been interested in chickens since I was in college. While visiting a friend's farm for the first time, I discovered just how interesting the little cluckers can be.
