Do you remember recently I suggested we all write letters to friends and family urging them to plan summer vacations with us or rent a place? There should be summer rentals in Fredonia when the college students are gone. Let's get realistic. We can't control businesses who leave, but we can beef up our numbers by getting people to come back. How many remember what John Malcolm wrote? He said out of all the places where half his family has lived, he chooses Fredonia. Among the places he has been are North Carolina, Ohio, Corning, Syracuse and Columbus. Outside of the states, he had been to New Delhi, Moscow and the U.K.
