Announcing our September Citrus County “Penny the Paper Peddler” Umbrella, Patricia Aguanno! Pat moved to Pinellas County FL from Massachusetts in 1959. She settled in Citrus County in 1996 and just loves it!
Pat loves to fish, exercise, work stained glass, take bus tours and cruise! She is enjoying retirement after her time working at the Pinellas County Sheriff's Office.
Pat picks up her Peddler's Post at Touch of Glass by Susan (you can find Susan in the classifieds) in Floral City, Florida or at Angelotti's Pizza in Inverness, Florida.
Pat says she likes everything about the post, especially the word search and GUS!
Fun Fact: When Gus was a little pup, he met Pat at Touch of Glass by Susan when we were delivering. Since then, we sometimes bump into her around in town and Gus just loves seeing her. The pups definitely had to come to this delivery!
Congratulations on your new umbrella Pat!
Thanks, Pudgee's for the dog friendly patio so we could let Gus see his friend Pat! You can tell by that Pitty smile, he really enjoyed it!

Robert picks up his Peddler's Post at his local Winn Dixie. Robert is a simple man who likes to hang out around the house and can sometimes be found playing with his 1965 Chevelle SS 396 with a 4 speed that he is working to rehab.
It was great to meet you Robert! Thanks for playing! We hope you enjoy your new Umbrella!
Pete has been a resident of Citrus County since May 2023, coming from Kansas City Missouri. He sought out Citrus County looking for a better way of life with his lovely wife Jennifer!

He likes the Peddler’s Post because of the humor and tone of the paper. Him and his wife enjoy reading the jokes together and laughing with each other. He also likes that we are neutral and stay away from politics and the like.
Pete is a super cool guy and will be a great addition to our already awesome community! Help me give a big welcome to Pete and Jennifer who are some of our new neighbors!
