A man of many talents

Some sad news rolled across our screens this week - Dr. Fred McConnell, Jr., best known to many in our area as the proprietor of McConnell's Orchard in Woxall, died at the age of 89. This multi-talented man was not only a good farmer, but a respected professor of philosophy for 25 years at Moravian College and a fellow graduate of Boston University.

Visits to his farm were always a treat not just for the delicious produce, but for the chance to spend a little time with the McConnells, who were always as welcoming and helpful as could be. The many friends they had return year after year to help with the harvest was a testament to that fact.
