SHANNONDALE Olga WaKers Call 725-6102 MOUNTAIN CHATTER An event occurred this past week that shows we are a unified, concerned group. A young girl was missing and her mother called for help and more than 50 folks tin'ned out despite the heavy rains, mud, etc. Mr. and Mrs. Stockstill, ~exents of the girl, are so very thankful to all who helped. Joe Mills, liason person between the Safety Patrol, Group Leaders and the Citizens' Association, called me and gave me some great data. For months now, a group has been compiling data to indicate every resident and his location in Shannondale. Each group leader then would know who is his responsibility and a quick, feasible way to get him in case of need, etc. Jack Wood headed this Committee. Now it behooves each and everyone of us to know our Group Leader and how to reach him. One map designating this will be at the mail Area and another will be at the Club, so there is no excuse for ignorance. In fact, such ignorance may mean disaster. The fact that the missir~ girls trackers gathered so quickly and so well, was the gratifying of using this device with Group Leaders. Joe Mills called each one, etc. and the group conected fast and did such a splendid job. This same group has been busy aU ter locating cars in snowdrifts, putting out barrels of sand. John Woodall has made a lot of new signs and Margaret Stringer has been equally busy puRing these out all over. These in. volve new street signs, etc. A grow like this can be in- valuable in narrowing all forms of communication, especially for those who live alone or are in need, but it did represent mountains of work in organization and needs our full cooperation and appreciation to make it work. So read and reread this paragraph, get busy, know your group leaders and support and respect them and make this a 100 per cent successful enterprise! Tbe 50- 50 Club also was instrumental inthe making of the list of all residents and their house locations and they also d~mrve a big hand! We now publicly thank all who were in any way involved in this mammoth, hell~ul project! I guess this very well fits the definition of a Friend, one who helps others to safely walk the ghtrope of life; one with a volume of sympathy and concern; a bandage for all cuts of misfortunes. We are so thankful and proud such "Friends" exist here in ~armondale ! Kay and Jim Hecker, Edna and Charles Clendening, Lou and Ginny Nutzman drove to Bethesda, Maryland last Friday for the 1982 Golf Tournament at the Congressional Country Club. A great day was later climaxed with dinner at Valle's. -* Dottle and Erhm'zi GUlwald recently celebrated their 25th wedding anniversary. They plan a cruise later.

Sarah Montague, Jimmy LOu and Curt Bonar, Mary Henn, Lois and John Blazek drove to Middletown to the Wayside Inn for Itmch and then to see the play "I Ought to be in Pictures." This was enjoyed by all, it was a play for jollity. Jimmy LOu says the theatre is about paid off which means the people have been supportive.

Tl~ number has grown from 8 to 14 and I hope more Morns will realize the importance of this as a prelude to good reading in. terests and habits as well as the development of some of the social skills. Take your small fry there and have yourselves a two hour rec~. At the last 50-50 Club dinner at the Club, Chuck Vir~ was singled out as a special celebrant. He had never had a birthday party, so Zeida, his wife, had a hand in this one. He was given a special card signed by all, enjoyed a special cake, and I un- derstand, Audrey Lonas, the bridge "guru", pinned a special pin on him and dubbed him a "Man of Wisdom." She says he knows when to bid and when not to bid. A belated happy l~y to you, Chuck, old boy Our condolences go out to John and Ann Conant on the death of his father. We hope too, that their daughter Laura, is now all better. We also extend sympathy to Bonnie V'mnds on the death of her mother.

All enjoyed the party. Audrey is- Mad of this group and this onbhLg job. Recently Audrey and l~dph Lmms drove 2600 miles to Dallas, Texas, all in one weekend. Why? Grandmas and Grandpas do these things] Daughter Latud.e Beeson and grandson, Daniel now 9 months old, were arriving from Australia. They will stay with the Beesons and later Dan, the husband, will return to the states. Papa wanted his son to know his grandparents at this stage in his life and later the little Daniel will get to know the Lonas' side. Also tt s past weekend (perhaps because they had done so little??) the Lonas en- tertained Ralph's brother, Stanley, and hia wife. Evelyn. Stanley has just recovered frmn a serious illness. They all played cards in between the gab fests. At the recent dinner of the Jefferson County Teachers' Association, a group of children entertained so well. I called their teacher, Mrs. ond and got this. Her helper is Peggy Smith. The youngsters are in the first thru 6th grades in the Page Jackson Solar School in Charles Town. Bobby Sharp, a caller, had taned the calls earlier and the chndrm per- formed very well to this. Sometimes, Joe Scwartz, calls the turns. This group gets to different schools, public libraries, etc. They danced for Senator Byrd and this is significant as he was the one who introduced a resolution to make square dancing the National Dance. It has passed both Houses and now awaits only the Presidential signature. Mr. and Mrs. Hammond belong to an adult group of leaders who perform for entertainment. The Garden Club - old Boards and the New Boards, met at the home of Fran Johnson, the new Prez. Here they exchanged materials and ws.

This week remember "to turn your scars into stars" and also remember a "star is best seen at night." The last meeting regarding the Dog Ordinance was held recently. While nothing definite evolved, those who attended felt that the sesaions had been a help in that views had been aired and the pros and cons regarding suggested ordinance had enlightened the Commlssiones who will now pursue the matter. We thank all from Shannoadale who took the time to go, speak and listen. We need more such fine folks.
