A correction to last week's news: Amanda Yocum and Terri Grissinger were in Hershey for some medical tests for Amanda last Saturday.

A Super Bowl party was held at the home of Andy, Tasha, Shaine and Kean Goshorn of Blairs Mills. Guests included Rick Goshorn, Buzz and Bea Covert, Shawn and Amy Crouse, Fred and Sharon Horne, Bobby, Lorraine and B.J. Copenhaver, and Phillip, Paula, Bryce and Riley Snyder.
