Louise Dickinson and Jeffrey Klein, owners of The Hungry Chicken Country Store in Rotterdam Junction are members of the #livingresourcesfamily who are in need. They had a large fire at their farm last week. While we are relieved to hear that no people were injured and their family home and the store are fine, they suffered much loss. Unfortunately, they lost three of their outbuildings - including their barn that housed two Katahdin sheep and their lambs. They also lost their cidery, the hen house, and the sheep shed behind the barn. The best way to help them is to support the store. Enjoy their freshly made baked goods, jams, breakfast sandwiches. Shop their Farm Store for locally made and handcrafted gifts. This weekend, they will be featuring extra creamy soft serve ice cream sundaes!

A reporter once asked Jonathan Peterson-Bernhard how long he has been figure skating. Jonathan answered, “About 15 minutes.” Indeed, Jonathan, a young man with autism, has been training for much longer than that. He was introduced to the sport in 2012 when his former recreation coordinator enrolled her residents in a weekly therapeutic skating class. Jonathan had never skated before but picked it up quickly. He took to it so well that in the spring of 2016, his coach invited him to train for competition in the 2017 Special Olympics New York State Winter Games, held in Poughkeepsie. Not only did he compete, Jonathan was selected out of 1,000 athletes to run the last leg of the Law Enforcement Torch Run to light the Cauldron to begin the Winter Games. Read how Living Resources kept Jonathan's ice skating career from cracking up during COVID!www.livingresources.org/jonathan-a-special-olympian-who-loves-to-boogie/ #autismawareness ...
