2010-11-11 / Correspondents' Notes


By Kate Berkstresser

The weatherman provided us with a really nice weekend, and I guess we get to enjoy a few nice days ahead.

Our sympathy is extended to the family and relatives of Verna Appleby, who passed away last week.

Herbert and Tammy Berkstresser just returned home from a hunting trip out West. They were lucky to get a deer while out there.

It doesn’t seem possible that Thanksgiving is fast approaching, then a short time later Christmas will be here.

Hustontown Fire Co. will sponsor a shooting match on Saturday, November 13, at 1:00 p.m. Shells will be furnished and prizes will be awarded.

The fire company will sponsor an open stage on Saturday, November 27, at 6:00 p.m. The kitchen opens at 5:00 p.m. Everyone is invited to come out and share talents or just come and enjoy the talents of others.

The fire company will also sponsor a food auction on Wednesday, November 17, at 6:00 p.m. The kitchen opens at 5:00 p.m. We have a new vendor, so won’t you come out and see what we have to auction off and support your volunteer firemen? They will greatly appreciate it.

A cancer benefit bingo will be held at Hustontown Firehall on Sunday, November 14, beginning at 2:00 p.m. Doors will open at 12:30 p.m. and the kitchen opens at 12:30 p.m. Cost is $25, which includes all games, but extras will be available for sale. This is a senior project for Kinsey Cutchall and Emily Karczewski, with all proceeds from the games being divided between breast cancer and lung cancer research. Come out and support this worthy cause. Kinsey is honoring her aunt, and Emily is honoring her grandmother. Prizes will be products from the Vera Bradley purse line and Lea Sophia jewelry line. Seating will be for ticket holders only. Your support will be greatly appreciated.

Household hint: If you have a stainless-steel sink, you can brighten it in only a few minutes. Polish it with a cloth dipped in a little vinegar or ammonia or use a bit of baking powder on a damp sponge. To remove streaks, rub with olive oil or club soda. Never scrub stainless steel with abrasive powders or scouring pads.
