By Kate Berkstresser

We are just having wonderful weather although the weatherman is calling for rain this week.

A special service was held in honor of Pastor Bill Kuhn and his wife, Joan, on Saturday at Knobsville United Methodist Church. Fairview United Methodist was also in attendance. A meal followed at Hustontown Firehall. Pastor Bill and Joan are going to be greatly missed, but we send them the best of wishes for his retirement. Next Sunday, June 16, will be Pastor Bill’s last service at Knobsville and Fairview churches.

Our sympathy is extended to the family and relatives of Ruth Schwartz who passed away this past weekend. She was a great lady.

The food auction will be held at Hustontown Firehall on Saturday, June 15, at 2 p.m. Kitchen opens at noon. Go eat lunch with the Fire Co. folks then enjoy the afternoon of auction of frozen foods, snacks, etc. A good way to support the fire company.

Open stage will be held at Hustontown Firehall Saturday, June 22, at 6 p. m. Kitchen opens at 5 p.m. Everyone is invited to attend and share their talent or come and enjoy the talent of others. Admission is free.

Tristan Gelvin travelled to James Madison University last Thursday through Saturday for baseball tournaments with his Flood City Elite team. This weekend he will be playing in Binghamton, N.Y.

The family of the late Herbert and Kate Berkstresser family reunion will be held at Forbes Road Lions Park on Sunday, June 16, at 1 p.m. All family members and relatives are invited to attend and bring a covered dish to enjoy the afternoon of fellowship. Also some games are possible. Hope to see all members of the family there.

Now that the schools are out for summer we hope the students enjoy their vacation. I’m sure some will work and also the seniors will be doing college planning. We wish them success in whatever they choose.

Household Hint: Keep meat from curling. Slash the edges of fat on steaks and chops at one-inch intervals to keep the meat from curling while it is cooking.
