Need a mask? There is a giveaway that is happening at various Wegman's locations in the area. Even though the mask mandate has ended in New York State for public places, there are still who want to have the best protection possible against COVID-19. For many, that means wearing an N95 mask.

Wegmans says it received the masks as part of a federal program through the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services. Shoppers are eligible to receive up to three adult-sized masks, however the locations of the masks in stores and the times they'll be distributed vary by location.

Wegmans is pleased to participate in the federal mask distribution program to make adult N95 masks available to the public, free of charge. The masks are now available at all Wegmans locations, with a limit of three masks per person, while supplies last.

LOCAL HERO SERVES ON THE USS GERALD R. FORD

There is no way to truly show the gratitude that we have for the brave men and women who serve in the United States Armed Forces. In this ever changing world, it is more important that we salute and support our military and those who chose to sacrifice for our freedoms.

Seaman Braeden Hitcome, a native of Forestville, New York, is one of those that we thank this week. Seaman Hitcome, grew up in a military family and has a passion for serving. Hitcome attended Forestville High School and graduated in 2020. According to an email that we received from the US NAVY:

“I joined the Navy because my dad was in the Army so military is in the family and I wanted a foot in the door getting into law enforcement,” said Hitcome. “I knew there’d be lots of travel and I've always wanted to serve.”
