By Kate

We couldn’ have had any nicer weather for the weekend. We just hope it continues until the festival is over this coming weekend.

Lee Tice had surgery at Meritus Hospital in Hagerstown. Glad to hear he came along OK, and we send wishes for a speedy full recovery.

Chaplain Bruce Carriker of Cowans Gap was guest speaker at Knobsville United Methodist Church Sunday.

Knobsville United Methodist Church will hold a chicken barbecue Saturday, October 20, from 11 a.m to 2 p.m. Also a potpie dinner with soup and sandwiches on November 6.

There will be lots of vendors set up down at The Barn on Route 522. A good place to spend the day, and there will also be eats on the ground. They are starting to set up early this week.

Mae Mann just returned home from the hospital after having pneumonia. Hope she continues to be completely well. Visitors in her home last week included Judy Pressel, her daughter from Texas. Other visitors were Nancy and Leslie Ann from Alexandria, Va., Wendy and husband Jasen from Abington, Md., Shirley Hall and friend Joe, and Duane and Nancy Souders.

Lots of folks attended the estate sale of Edith Miller between Waterfall and Three Springs on Saturday.

Hustontown Fire Co. will be serving food all through the weekend starting Friday night from 5 p.m. to 7 p.m. Roast beef, vegetable and dessert on Friday and slippery potpie from 11 a.m. to 2 p. m. on Saturday. Open stage will be at 6 p.m. on Saturday, and Sunday is the allyou can-eat smorgasbord from 11 a.m. to 2 p.m.

A food auction will be held at the firehall Saturday, October 27. The kitchen opens at noon and auction is at 2 p.m. Vendor is Mike Sullivan. A good chance to patronize our loyal fireman.

Household hint: Romaine lettuce is greener than iceberg lettuce and has about three times as much vitamin C and about six times as much vitamin A as iceberg lettuce. A good point to remember is that the greener the vegetable the higher it is in vitamins and minerals.
