This spring weather isn’t really warm, but we aren’t having snowy weather.

A nice crowd attended the fellowship meal at Knobsville United Methodist Church on Sunday.

Happy birthday wishes to Louise Vance who will celebrate her 90th birthday on March 31.

Hustontown Fire Co. will sponsor its spring banquet on Saturday evening, April 2, for members and guests at 6 p.m.

The fire company will sponsor a shooting match on Saturday, April 2, at 1 p.m. Shells will be furnished and prizes will be awarded. The volunteer fire company appreciates everyone’s support. All you good marksman go out and support them.

The May primary is not far away. If you are not registered to vote, go and register so you can help elect the county officers of your choice.

The flea market over at St. Thomas United Methodist Church on Friday and Saturday last week seemed to be well attended. It was a good place to meet your friends as well as find bargains and support the church.

Glad to hear Gil Deshong came through heart surgery real well last week. Hope he will be home soon.

We are going to miss Peter and Judy Rusack as they will be heading west to Kansas next week. We send good wishes to them as they travel to their new residence.

Lenten Bible study is every Thursday evening at 7 p.m. until Thursday, April 14. Soup and sandwiches are at 6 p.m. Come out and enjoy the evening at Knobsville United Methodist Church.

Household Hint: Make your newspaper do double duty. Use them for mulch after you’ve read them. A layer several sheets thick and anchored with rocks, makes cheap, water- conserving, biodegradable mulch. Avoid pages with colored ink as they may contain lead.
