Hustontown

By Kate Berkstresser

Hope everyone had a great Christmas as we celebrate the great occasion of the Savior’s birth. Again, the Master makes all things possible.

Our sympathy is extended to Harvey and Pat Berkstresser on the death of Pat’s sister, Ann, and also the death of a nephew.

A nice crowd attended Christmas Eve services at Knobsville United Methodist Church.

Hustontown Volunteer Fire Co. and Ladies Auxiliary wish to thank everyone for their support in 2010 and for all their fundraising efforts. Hope to see you next year.

Hustontown Area Volunteer Fire Co. will sponsor a hog shoot on Saturday, January 1, beginning at 1:00 p.m. There will be 11 regular rounds to qualify for the shoot. Various meat prizes will be given away. Shells will be furnished. Guns may be checked day of shoot if in question.

Hope everyone has a Happy New Year and also a great year as we look ahead to 2011. Thanks to all for letting me be your correspondent for 2010.

Household hint: To keep Christmas lights from getting tangled up wrap them around an empty wrapping paper tube or a rolled up newspaper when you store them. This makes it easier to put them on the tree next year. Just unroll gradually around the tree.
