THURSDAY, JUNE 28, 1984 LION PRESIDENT CITED FOR SERVICE Gene Swab, president of the Charles Town Lions Club was among those honored the evening of June 2 by the Club at their annual awards dinner. President Swab was cited for his outstanding leadership during the 1983-84 year. He not only served as president of the club, but also handled the chair- manship of the Lions Club Center committee. Prior to being presented a plaque by Mike Martin, (left), secretary of the Club as shown in the above picture, a resume of the club's major accomplishments during he presidency of Swab was read as follows: had a total of 19 guest speakers during the year; published 10 newsletters; collected $5,065 for sight- related projects; collected $2,604 on paper drives; and realized $7,900 net from the Club's bingo games. The club made contributions to the two Charles Town Fire Com- panies; the Jefferson County Little League; the Special Olympics; the Little Peoples Place; the Olde Charles Town Library; the Jefferson County Health Department; and the Jefferson High Pop singers. The club also presented a total of 550 small American flags to first graders in the Jefferson County School system; and won first place honors in both the Christmas and Firemen's parades. But the major achievement of the year was the retirement of the debt on the Lions Center Building and the burning of the note.

The Model 70 bale thrower fits all three 14" x 18" balers in the Sperry New Holland line. It's easy to maintain and reliable )n operation. And it swings up, out of the way for easy access to bale chamber, or to drop bales directly on the ground. Like all Sperry New Holland machines, the "70" is backed by a service and parts system that's second to none.

Our daughter Lisa Rupel will be home on leave from training with the U.S. Army the first two weeks of July. She'll be stopping in at the Store and the quarry and other places she has known so well. She'll be looking for all the members of the "hen house" and other friends to say hello. Our son-in-law and our daughter (Mr. and Mrs. Allen Gilbert) will be arriving this weekend from Bellefon- taine, Ohio. They'll be bringing along the four grandsons they've given us -- Reuben, Danny, David and Joseph. The boys hope to sleep this weekend "in a tent in our front yard. Our grandson Josh is visiting his other grandparents, Mr. and Mrs. Harry Lowry in Hamilton, Va. Our grandson Eric is traveling with the carnival that visited Charles Town a couple of weeks ago; they will be in Madison, Va. this week. Had to give up having a garden this year. First the weather was against us, then the tractor wouldn't start, then Eric injured his knee, then I got sick. First time in fifteen years we have been without a garden. Bill Kidwiler, looking like the healthiest man in town, celebrated his 69th birthday last week. The Store looks a lot different inside now. Joe and Marlene Thompson had a walk-in beer cooler installed in the back, and a number of other changes have been made to help folks help themselves. Still looks like a country store, though. Thanks to all you nice folks who ask- ed about me while I was laid up sick last week. First time I've been really incapacitated in two years or more. Had a powerful case of bronchitis - about degrees of fever, could hard- ly breathe, heavy chest paros, etc. I'll spare you the details, but the Doc had me on heavy antibiotics and lots of bed rest, etc. and I don't want to ever go through that again. Came close to go- ing into the hospital. I think I know what caused it. Remember that hot spell a couple of weeks ago? I was do- ing some heavy work at the time, and was popping in and out of air- conditioned stores and houses while I was sweated up. Just like Lewis Lloyd says: "'Stayout of the air conditioning."
