FARMINGTON – Some subscribers to the Davis Clipper get more than community news when their papers arrive on Thursdays.
About once a month when holidays come around, 48 Farmington subscribers might find little messages or mementos tucked inside their rolled news.
For the past year and a half, a sibling team works with their mother and grandmother to create little ties for Father’s Day, little hearts for Mother’s Day or carrots for Easter. To each item is attached a short thought or poem.
“We get a lot of comments back that people really like it,” said the mother of the two teens, who asked that their names not be used. “They really look forward to what’s going to be in the paper. One lady passed away and her daughter said she kept every one because she was so excited that we thought of her.”
The teens say they have had to deal with snakes and dogs as they work together along the bench in Farmington.
Other hazards are snow-covered sidewalks if they deliver the Clipper before walks are shoveled in winter.
But they continue to work as a team to deliver the weekly editions Р and sometimes a few surprises.
