It was great to have such a beautiful weekend. Hope everyone got out to enjoy it.

We extend our sympathy to the family and relatives of Elton Schoen who was killed in an auto accident last week.

Sorry to hear

Willis Heefner wasn't doing as well on Sunday. We hope he is improved now.

Those who attended the Lynch reunion at Needmore Firehall on Sunday had a nice time of fellowship and, of course, lots of good food.

Harriett Hill and daughter Joan and son Steve of Lancaster and Manheim attended the reunion.

We hear Bill Henry isn't feeling so well. We send get wishes his way and also get well wishes to Alice Walker.

we hear a nice crowd attended the alumni banquet at Hustontown Firehall on Saturday night.

I wish to thank all those folks who sent flowers, cards and visited while I was in Fulton County Medical Center and also since I've been home.

Household hint: Need a small ruler: Who says a dollar won't go as far as it used to. Actually a dollar bill is a perfect six-inch measure. It will work as a miniruler. Remember, if in need of a six-inch ruler as a dollar bill will work fine. Just have one handy.
