The weekend sure presented us with some of that good, warm summer weather. Some of other areas got some rain, but it sort of

passed us by. passed us by.

Our sympathy is extended to the families of Grace Kuhns, the Faye Snyder family and the Chris Connor family.

Our prayers and best wishes to Rev. Delmas Bard, who suffered a heart attack on Friday and is now a patient at York Hospital.

Belated happy birthday to Robert Bennett, who had a special day on Saturday, June 26. Happy birthday to Heidi Berkstreser on July 2 and Harvey Berkstresser and Maynard Black on July 4.

Household hint: A good way to use those last little bits of soap. Slip them into a bath sponge. To make your own, take a new household sponge, use a sharp knife to slit a little pocket into the side of the sponge. Insert small slices of soap and use the sponge instead of a washcloth for showers or baths.
