Laurie Pike

I am sure many Cooper residents have noticed the ground work happening on the North Union Road in recent weeks.  It was hard for some longtime residents to see the old homestead and greenhouses coming down and being hauled away, but from the more positive outlook, we can now welcome a new couple onto the North Union Road in Cooper, Charles Holmes and Janet Lance.  Ground work is about complete, the slab is all poured, and they are awaiting their new home, which will be arriving in the near future.  Welcome Charles and Janet to the Cooper Community!
