Congratulations to Patrick and Jamie Ford Horne on the recent birth of their daughter, Quinn Aubrey on November 12 at 8:13 p.m. She was welcomed home by her big brother Paxton the next day.

Our sympathy is extended to the family of Linda Kasper. Linda passed away on Friday. Ron and Linda Kasper were former Maddensville residents who moved from the area because of Linda’s health. Our thoughts and prayers are with Ron at this time.

Visiting with Linda and Ron Kasper earlier on Friday were Joan Holtry and Gayle Ray.

Karen Grissinger stopped by on Sunday afternoon to offer a long overdue welcome to new neighbors Duane, Amber, Brayden and Aubrey Thomas on Sunday. We hope they enjoy their new residence.

Kaylee Locke spent Saturday visiting with Gordon and Donna Locke. Later on Saturday the Lockes visited with Irene Park at Meadowview Manor for their annual Christmas party. James Locke was also visiting while Aunt Karen and Terri Grissinger had stopped in to spoil Kaylee.

The annual community choir Christmas cantata will be held December 15 and 16 beginning at 7 p.m. at Orbisonia United Methodist Church.

Ronnie Horne had dinner with Roger and Pat Ramsey on Monday evening.

Not wanting to pass up an opportunity to be outside on these warm days, Karen and Steve Grissinger were doing a little deer hunting. Neither was lucky with the hunt, but Karen was abundantly lucky, finding a bush of stickies that took hours to remove. Stickies are one of those things you wonder what God was thinking of when he created them. But then maybe it was to teach someone a dose of wellneeded patience.

Recent visitors in the home of the Steve Grissinger family were Galen, Ramon and Tammy Martin, Tom and Mamie Streightiff, Travis Madden, James Locke and Brent Carlson.

Hustontown Area Volunteer Fire Co. will hold shooting matches on Saturdays beginning at 1 p.m. Shells will be provided.
