2013-10-17 / Correspondents' Notes


By Kate Berkstresser

We are all hoping the rain showers will be done so we can have a nice weekend for the annual fall festival. Hope everyone can get out and enjoy all the activities. The Barn flea and craft market with more than 200 vendors is a good place to browse around and shop and spend the day. Also the Fulton Theatre in McConnellsburg has lots of things to see.

Hustontown Fire Co. will have a lot of good food also and other activities Friday, Saturday and Sunday. Roast beef dinner starting at 5 p.m. on Friday; Saturday from 11 a.m. to 2 p.m. is homemade slippery potpie. Saturday night is also open stage night at 6 p.m. Kitchen opens at 5 p.m. Bring your group or just come and entertain and spend the evening. Sunday is the all-you-can-eat buffet starting at 11 a.m. with roast beef, oven-fried chicken, ham, turkey, meatballs, liver and onions, large selection of vegetables, mashed potatoes, stuffing, gravy, various salads, assorted desserts and beverage.

Hustontown Fire Co. will sponsor a shooting match Saturday, October 19, at 1 p.m. Sign-in begins at noon and shells are furnished and prizes awarded. This is a new season and new features, so come test your skill and support the firemen.

Our sympathy is extended to the family and relatives of Wayne Crouse and also to the family and relatives of Gail Cook who both passed away last week.

Tristan Gelvin, Hunter Horton, Greg and Zack Barnett, Greg Ramsey and Howard and Colton Mellott enjoyed a trip to Pulaski, N.Y., salmon fishing over the weekend.

Mike and Sara Kay Helman visited with Kate Berkstresser on Monday.

Household hint: You don’t have to throw away the cracked raw eggs you find in the carton. Use them, but only for egg dishes that are thoroughly cooked such as hard- cooked eggs or in baked goods.
