By Kate Berkstresser

We couldn’t have ordered a nicer day than Sunday. A good chance to get out and enjoy the beauty that the Master has provided for us. It won’t be long until it could be white.

We have quite a few folks who are on the shut-in list: Rusty Carmack is still a patient at a Pittsburgh hospital. We also hear he will have to have more surgery, so keep him in your prayers for a speedy recovery.

Also sorry to hear Frank Martz isn’t doing well. We hope he will be on the improvement list soon.

Mary Ann Hykes is a patient at Waynesboro Hospital. We send get well wishes and prayers to this lovely lady.

Glad to report Peter Rusack is doing really well after having surgery last week. Also get well wishes to Greg Creager, who is on the ill list.

Happy birthday wishes to Grace Heefner, who will have a special day on October 30.

Mr. and Mrs. John Chamberlain visited with Kate Berkstresser Sunday afternoon. Mrs. Chamberlain lived a couple houses up the street when she was a little girl.

As you all know next Tuesday is election day. Hope all take the time to go out and vote. There are local offices to be filled that are more important locally.

Household hint: Freeze meatballs – Freeze raw or cooked meatballs on a cookie sheet then transfer to a container, seal and freeze. They’ll stay separate and you can use as many as you want when you need them. Also buy your meat when on sale or a good buy.
