According to the traffic on Sunday, summer vacation and traveling have begun. Anyway the weather was great.

We extend our sympathy to the family and relatives of Thelma Bratton, who passed away last week and also tot the family and relatives of Velma Leese, who also passed away on Thursday of last week. Velma was a great lady and quilter and great to be with quilting.

Quite a lot of the graduates are seeking employment for the summer months. We already are into July, so summer will go very quickly.

It was good to see a nice crowd at Knobsville United Methodist Church on Sunday even though some folks are away.

As we listen to news, etc., we notice God being more and more eliminated. What is happening to our Christian nation? We must remember God is still in control even though Washington doesn’t seem to show it. So we need to pray for our country that we enjoy.

Olivia Mills is serving as a camp counselor in training at Ligonier, Pa.

Randy, Trudy and Tristan Gelvin spent from Thursday until Sunday at Pittsburgh playing on the Newville Premiere Baseball League travelling team. The team played games at Pitt University, Green Tree and Slippery Rock University.

Pastor Bill will be on vacation Sunday, July 10. Rev. Bruce Maxwell of Breezewood

Trucker Ministry will be guest speaker at Knobsville United Methodist Church.

Beverly St. Clair and Lindsay were visitors with Kate Berkstresser on Saturday evening.

Happy birthday wishes to Christopher Gress, June 10; Sharyn Hill, June 16; Michael Gress, June 18.

Happy anniversary wishes to Gilbert and Donna DeShong, June 7; Dennis and Sharyn Hill, June 8; and David and Mary Ann Hykes, June 13.

Thought For The Day: Happiness is like potato salad. When you share it with others, it’s a picnic. Just about the time you think you can make ends meet, somebody moves the ends. Be careful how you live, you may be the only bible some people read or watch. Do good in your daily life, it pays as God always watches us.
