  1. It will be great to be in Prattsburgh for the Bicentennial Celebration. Growing up in a small town had many advantages. I had a great school to attend, a wonderful church, a good doctor to take care of my family, and lots of family and friends who would be dear to me the rest of my life no matter how far away from Prattsburgh our paths would take us. I will always remember my years in Prattsburgh and be proud. – Linda Babcock Wetherbee
