26 Manufactured Home Builder Holding Open House July 18 , KEN AUVIL i Grafton Manufactured Housing is i expanding in the Eastern Panhandle, i accoreding to Ken Auvil, who says that by winter he plans to positon the Graf- .ton "Home Team" to help meet the : ousing need of the growing Eastern : panhandle. : Grafton Manufactured Housing is an "up from the ashes" company form- ed from the core of New Era Homes after it was destroyed by fire in December, 1985. The "Home Team" his produced 1700 structures, homes, motels, apartments, classrooms in West Virginia, Virginia, Pennsylvania and Maryland. Auvil says that they/iave recently tested the market with a limited brokerage program and now plan to expand full home sales and construc- tion services to the Eastern Panhandle. : :: "Home Team" projects in the region include several homes in Martinsubrg, Bolivar, Berkeley Springs, Sharp- sburg, Winchester, Berryville, and Toms Brook, Sea solar homes at Cool- font and Whitings Neck, classrooms at Berkeley Sprinss, Capon Bridge and Augusta, a dmit motel addition to Town House East in Charles Town, a 72-trait odge at Edgewood, Md., a -unit motel at Laurel, Md., and an 8-unit addition to Terrace Motel in Elkridge, Md. Auvil says that Grafton Manufac .... tured Housing is a uniquely different, high-quality modular manufacturing company in that it builds what the buyer wants. It can match the design, quality and specification of any com- pany, but offers a variety of options and designs so the buyer can "customize" his home. A VIP Open House for interested builders, brokers, developers and lenders wil be held on Monday, July 18 from 1 to 9 p.m. at their tri-level model home. The model is located on Route 5 between Martinsburg and Shepherdstown. Anyone interested is encouraged to attend. RANSON i i Welcome back to the Senior Center to Alice Pendleton and Lula Walker. They beth traveled to Wheeling for eye surgery and they are doing fine and dandy. Alice is the official tea lady for the staff in the office. We were afraid Beverly Basore would die from thirst before Alice made it back. Every day, like clockwork, tea magically appears and Bey perks up. It all rather reminds you of the way the flowers looked before the rain Tuesday morning. The Concerned Citizens Against Drugs are sponsoring a "Just Say No To Drugs" in Ranson Saturday, July 23, at the Ranson Elementary School from 12 to 4. WXVA will host the event and provide the music. There will also be games, door prizes, speakers, food and drinks. All proceeds from the day will be used for the education of the children in the Ranson school. Please take the time to stop by and support the local police and these interested citizens. The convention delegation from Jackson Perks Post and Unit 71 has returned from the Department con- vention. Information for the coming Lgi/Auxiliary year was distributed during a meeting packed four days. Unit 71 received special recognition for its Field Service work and publici- ty. One of the highlights of the conven- tion was an appearance by A. James Manchin, secretary of the treasury. He gave one of his usual eloquent speeches on patriotism, mother and his love of country. It is ironic that a West Virginia treasurer should be Secretary of the Treasuery. Depart- ment President Irene Weber was honored by receiving a certificate and medal naming her an official public friend to West Virginia. The next official business for Unit 71 will be to prepare for the coming year. Programs are directed by the National organization and local units then work to fit them to their local community. Helen Terry and I will be attending the Fall board meeting in Bridgeport and the meetings seem to go on and on and on. I know that you faithful readers of this column have been waiting with sucked-in breath for a fish update. I am happy to announce that both of my original fish are doing well, and we adopted a type of catfish and an orange snail. I have trained the fish to swim to the top of th tank when they see me heading their way, rather the same way my dog sits by the kitchen table when food appears. They are fed twice a day and they are increasing in size. They do tend to look hungry most of the time, and Bill gets the same top swim response when he approaches the tank. Who can tell ff a fish is tell- ing the truth when he says he's hungry ! ! Marty Lancaster Dial 725-4370 -There has been great news receiv- ed on the "Garbage War". Magistrate Gall Viands reported to the County Clean-Up Committee that permission has been received to have misde- meanor offenders put on trash pick-up detail instead of imposing a quickly forgotten fine or placing them in jail. The offender would he sentenced to X urs of community service work col- lecting trash along the state roads and highways. The county has the poten- tial of having hundreds of "Trash Troopers", no matter how unwilling, and perhaps a real dent can he made il cleaning the county. This sentence would only apply when no serious crime was committed, or when no mandatory jail sentence was called for. LDuring the last county-wide trash day 636 truckloads of garbage were taken to the landfill. The cars and trucks were lined up down Leetown Road and definite progress was made around the county. November 5 has been marked as the next all-out effort td pick up trash for winter. I'm not sure if the dump will cancel the fee for that day, but keep reading the Ranson News to stay current. (What a sneaky way to increase readership! ) : The Senior Sunshine CTm enter- inecl recently at the Old Charles Town Library. Seniors Vergie Oft, Grace and Isiah Allen, Marie Griffith, ttie Longerbeam, Catherine Carter, :Icloma Wright, Hazel Rose, Joe Taylor, l:teadow Harris, Brooks Evans, Zenia Hilliard and John and Rosalie Willis were the featured entertainment for the afternoon progam. Wallis Magaha presented each senior with a red car- nation at the conclusion of the singing. TJis program is just one of the many tKat will be presented by Anna $hrewbridge, Librarian, during the Summer reader programs. Lois Mackey and Bertha Holmes returned home Monday night from another of their frequent trips. They -aveled to Arcade, N. Dak. to visit with Bertha's son Robert Stasio and family. Son Michael drove in from B{Lttle Creek, Mich., and completed the family get-together. While they Were in Arcade, Bdm and Lois at- tended a concert given by Bobby Vin- ton. He sang to them in five languages and they reported they enjoyed the show tremendously. Bertha's grand- daughter also made new combs for Bertha's hair. The eye should now con- centrate on which ear the flower rests. Flowers over one ear means "I'm in- terested" and the other ear means "Drop dead". I'll never know the message she's giving out... I forget which ear means what. Harpers Ferry Realty 535-2222 Box 169, Harpers Ferry, W.Va. 25425 Farms and Acreage Development Land Recreation Land Commercial Industrial Homes WILLIAM V.
