After all that hot weather this past week, we did get a slight shower. Hope that we get some more very badly needed rain.

Everyone is reminded to mark your calendars for the food auction at Hustontown Fire Co. Firehall on Saturday, August 20, beginning at 2 p.m. The kitchen will open at noon. The vendor will be Mike Sullivan. Come out and stock up for winter.

Fort Littleton Bible Church folks and youth group spent last week at Sinoquipe.

Open stage will be held on Saturday, August 27, beginning at 6 p.m. Kitchen will open at 5 p.m. Everyone is welcome to come and share their talent or come out and enjoy the talent of others. A good way to spend Saturday evening and support the volunteer firemen at the same time. Admission is free. We hope to see you there.

August is a busy month with Shade Gap Picnic activities this week then the Fulton County Fair and, of course, it will be time for school to be starting.

Correction: One of the triplet Peck boys named last week read Jack and it should have been Jacob Peck.

Household Hint: Storing vitamins. You can store your unopened vitamins in the refrigerator if you wish, but do not keep your opened bottles there. Condensation may build up inside the bottle and moisture wears down vitamins shelf lives. Better to keep your opened bottles tightly closed and in a dry cabinet or closet.
