By Kate Berkstresser

It seems winter decided to arrive early with a snow storm in October. The only good thing about it was that it made for nice scenery.

Quite a few turned out to hear the program by the Joynotes from Everett on Sunday evening at Knobsville United Methodist Church. If you missed it, you miss-ed a good evening of song.

Due to the snowstorm, the auction for Delmar Mellott, a victim of MS, will be at Green Hill Sewing Club on Saturday, November 5, at 6 p.m. A covered-dish meal will be at 5 p.m. The auction will be sponsored by Kindred Spirits, and they are accepting used or new items to be auctioned off for the worthy cause. Baked goods are also welcomed for this sale. Please attend and support this worthy cause. Max Mc- Quade will be the auctioneer.

Hustontown Fire Co. Ladies Auxiliary will sponsor a benefit dinner for one of its members on Sunday, November 6, from 11:30 a.m. to 1:30 p.m. Dorothy Shotts is a recovering survivor of cancer, and the auxiliary is hoping to help her in this way. The menu will be spaghetti, salad, garlic bread, cake and beverage. Cost is adults $7 and children 5-10 $3.50 and under 5 are free. Your support will be greatly appreciated.

Don’t forget the shooting match sponsored by the Hustontown Fire Co. at 1 p.m. on each Saturday. Shells will be furnished and prizes will be awarded.

Hustontown Fire Co. will sponsor an open stage on Saturday, November 26 at 6 p.m. Kitchen opens at 5 p.m. Everyone is welcome to come out and share their talent to just come out and enjoy the talent to fothers.

Knobsville United Methodist Church folks are having a soup and sandwich sale on Election Day. Orders may be called to the church or to Joan Kuhn.

Household Hint: Keeping accessories neat. Need a place for those ties, belts and other accessories? Golf tees make fine pegs for these items. Just drill rows of holes in an attractive board and glue the pointed ends of the tees into them and fasten the board to a wall in a closet or a handy place.
