Terry Tobias, an Upper Falls resident, submitted the following as a letter to the editor. Wally is my Mom's 9 year old Italian Greyhound. She bought Wally about a year after my Dad passed away.

Since October 2010, Hubbard, a Perry Hall resident, has devoted her time to working at the Perry Hall United Methodist Church Food Pantry. "I said to the pastor, I wanted to do something where I felt like I was helping somebody else, and this is where I found my niche," she said.
