PHOTO: Autumn decorations

Diana Parcher (above), of Streator, retired from Exelon this year and started working at Dick's Floor Covering, 101 E. Main St., Streator, shortly after retirement. Jill Fraser, of Stamford, Conn., Yuhas' daughter, submitted this photo and wrote: "Dick's Floor Covering has been in business for as long as I can remember. While I was in Streator, I had the absolute pleasure of meeting Mr. Rick Yuhas (owner of Dick's Floor Covering which is a long-standing family business). The festive storefront of Dick's was decorated by Ryan Yuhas and Diana Parcher. They did a great job! After enjoying the fall decorations with my mom and the friendly conversation with Mr. Rick Yuhas, I felt like a kid again in Streator." Fraser grew up in Streator and after graduating from Illinois State University with a Bachelor of Science degree in finance, worked in Chicago, specializing in commercial insurance and reinsurance. After 11 years in the Windy City, Fraser moved to Stamford, where she lives and works. "It is always great to get back to Streator, Ottawa, and Peru to visit my family, go out to dinner, and support the local economy," Fraser wrote.
