The Hustontown Fire Co. will also sponsor an open stage on December 18 at 6:00 p.m. Kitchen opens at 5:00 p.m. Admission is free and the facility is smoke-free.

The Hustontown Fire Co. will sponsor a hog shoot on Saturday, January 1, at 1:00 p.m. Come and try your skill and support the firemen at the same time. We must remember they are always there to support the people.

Happy birthday to Hayden Berkstresser on December 15.

As you are getting ready to celebrate the special day, take time to think what the special day is all about – the Savior’s birth.

Household Hint: The razor’s edge. To prolong the life of razor blade, keep a cup of mineral oil in the bathroom. Store the razor in it after every use. The oil prevents oxidation which helps keep the blade from imperfections which may cause nicks when you shave the next time.
