Rittman Post items
I got an early copy of the Rittman edition of The Post newspaper and an article and a letter to the editor caught my eye.
First The Treasure Chest is featured on the front page. Bruce F. Griffin wrote an excellent article about the thrift shop. This should be online either Tuesday or Wednesday. Just go to thepostnewspapers.com , click on Rittman Edition and the article should be near the top. Some things that I failed to mention in my earlier post is the owners names which are Terri Porter and Joni Robinson. And the TRreasure Chest is located at 171 South Main Street in Rittman. It's in the old H&R materials store.
Next there was a letter to the editor concerning a friend of the community. Dan Hoover, who has been a Rittman bus driver for the past 28 years and his family was involved in a automobile accident on November 7th that caused major injuries to his family(further details are unknown). The letter, written by other Rittman bus drivers, specified that a Hoover Trust has been set up at all FirstMerit banks. I will go on to say that Dan Hoover has been a personal friend to me and my family over the years as well as a great supporter of the Rittman band as he's had two daughters participate and has driven the bus to many games and shows. If you can please help this family.
