Eckart retires


I, Judy Eckart, would like to announce to my customers on Route 2 in Backus that I am retiring on Feb. 22, 2013. I will miss all of you and so many who have become friends. In the past 29 years, I have seen many changes on the route and within your family lives. Take care my friends and God bless.
