KRAMeeting Due to inclement weather, the Kearneysville Residents Association was canceled March 4, with guest speaker Rev. Tyrone Lockett. At this time I have not received a make up date. 4-H Meeting The Evergreen 4-H Club will meet on the second Thursday of April due to Jefferson County Schools Spring Break. Favorite Calendar Taken from my Farmers Almanac calendar, I found that accoi'ding to weather lore, bad weather on Palm Sunday denotes a year of failing crops. The wind direction on Palm Sunday is said to predominate through-out the summer. A pleas- ant Easter bodes well for a bounti- ful crop and harvest. Did you know that Abraham Lincoln was shot by John Wilkes Booth on Good Friday, 1865. Two years before the assassi- nation, Lincoln's son Robert Todd Lincoln (1843-1926) had been saved from a train accident by Booth's brother, Edwin. Taken from another favorite People Weekly calendar. Today, March 25, is the birthday of Elton John (Reginald Kenneth Dwight) born in Pinner, Middlesex, England, in 1947. He has a long list of hits including "Crocodile Rock," "I'm Still Standing," and many more. John sang a revised version of his "Candle in the Wind" at the 1997 funeral of Diana, Princess of Wales.

But, folks, it IS a BIG DEAL to have lived, loved, enjoyed and definitely worked at being together for so many years. We need to look at each year as special, don't you think? High Honor We congratulate Scout Patrick Flanagan for having accomplished all the requirements that have catapulted him to the most presti- gious Scout honor. On Saturday, March 27, beginning at 2 p.m the Eagle Scout Court of Honor will be held for Patrick at the Leetown United Methodist Church. The public is invited to attend. I Was There Our Jefferson County Associa- tion of Retired School Employees met for the March meeting last Thursday with about 30 in atten- dance. After the delicious meal served by the ladies of Uvilla United Methodist Church, the singing of America the Beautiful, the Pledge of Allegiance to the Flag and the invocation by Don Mickey, President Charles Freeland pre- sided over the very brief business meeting. After business, Freeland intro- duced the program for the meeting. I really wanted to call this program "entertainment" because that's just w~at it was. The comedy team of "Starkey and Mickey" had us rolling in the aisles with their act. This was also the month of the an- nual fundraiser, where everyone brings an item to be auctioned off. "Starkey and Mickey" served as auctioneers for the occasion, Starkey giving descriptions of the items up for bid and Mickey doing the actual auctioneering, donning a green hat and tie for the event. The team succeeded in obtaining bids from every member present, the high bidders being Al and Roberta Rudacille with Joan Kershner a close second. The team even confused some of us into bid- ding against oursevles--and for the item we brought to the auction! We can't wait until next year's auction, or should I say, comedy routine. Members, you don't want to miss this again. By the way, "Starkey" is coach Bob Starkey, formerly of Shepherd College and now with the South Hagerstown High School team, and "Mickey" is Don Mickey, former assistant superintendent of schools and the new president of .the organization. Bob will be new vice president, along with Evelyn Watson, secretary, and Doris Cline, treasurer. Membership chair Gretchen Weigel will collect dues ($9.50) for the coming year at the April meet- ing on the 15th. Those present from the Leetown area were Virginia Sagle, Anne Doxsee, Dee Dee Harden, Frances Magaha and your FLC. Talk About Wedded Bliss James H. Locke and Emma M. Starliper tied the knot in marriage 40 years ago this Saturday, March 27. We congratulate the happy couple and wish them many more years of "wedded bliss".
