Dorothy Crown

Dorothy Crown, a resident at The Village at Palmerton, celebrated her 93rd birthday on July 15.

Born in Harrisburg, she is the only child of the late Claude and Maude Hassinger. She chuckles when she says that her parents said she was the perfect gift, so they stopped there.

Dorothy, "Dot" as she is better known, attended William Penn High School and later Central Pennsylvania Business College.

When she was about 21 years old, Dot and her friend Jean were at a local rollerskating rink and Harold was there with one of his friends.

Many of us dispatch our used paper to a bin, the first step on the way to Recycle Land.

These household accumulations of paper and cardboard are just one more thing to get rid of.

Luckily, there are designers and artists who see possibilities in all that wood pulp. They're busy using it to create art, decorative accessories, even furniture.

So what you sent to the recycling center just might find its way back, in some form, to your home.
