Relay for Life Celebration A year end picnic was held at the local Moose Club pic- nic grounds with a large crowd attending. Reason for the picnic was to honor all who had worked hard raising over $104,000 from this coun- ty. The hope is to find a cure for the cancer disease which takes so many people from us. A big ovation was given to the local Moose men .and wom- en's groups who raised over $20,000. Kudos to all who helped, donated and walked. Strawberry Pie Since strawberries still seem to be plentiful in the stores, I will offer this quick dessert: 2 tablespoons corn- starch, 1 cup sugar and 1 cup water. Blend these three items and cook until thick (3- 5 minutes). Add 1/2 package of 3 'oz. strawberry jello. Stir until dissolved. Cool, but not completely cold. Spread one quart fresh strawberries into prepared graham cracker pie shell. Add the liquid. Top with whipped topping when serv- ing. Easy, quick and hits the spot. Reunion Entertainment The Family Reunion at the Just A Farm home on Sulphur Spring Road was planned, peo- ple were invited, but no spe- cial plans were made to keep people excited. Lo and behold, before the reunion was over, a loud explosion type noise was heard and a big box truck had taken down two fences, shrubs and whatever got in the way. For some unknown redson, a Guardian Angel was riding with the driver and he was not seriously hurt. Those who attended the re- union were Molly and Mike Rose, Donna Jean and Pete Plummer of Williamsport, Md Lisa and Russell Beach, children Lexi and Camer- on, and Bryan Plummer all of Marlowe, W. Va Trac- ey, Chuck, Haley and Emi- ly Huffinberger and Charles McCarty and Sandy and Bob Hutzell all of Hagerstown, and Debbie, Jim and Trey Hunsucker of Charles Town. With all the excitement ev- eryone enjoyed a beautiful day, good food and catching up on what everyone has been doing.

Mrs. Welsh 876-6845 What started as an Eagle Scout project has continued as a labor of love by members of Grace Reformed U.C.C. For his scout project, Corey Walsh chose his church by planning a landscaping project that includ- ed a memory garden, upkeep of the current picnic pavilion, and planting around the year old church sign. Unfortunately, he turned 18 years old before the project was completed. His church family has contin- ued to help carry this project to completion. Miles and Mike Bak- er have power washed the pavil- ion while Brenda Baker and Re- gina Yowell donated all supplies and painted it. The memory garden was cre- ated in the spring of 2004 when members donated lilies that graced the church in honor or in memory of loved ones at Easter. Gary and Cory Walsh in a part of the churchyard designated to the memory garden planted these. To be added are stepping stones for a walkway, additional flowers, more top soil to level the park and the bench was donated by Evergreen 4-H Club. Summer is Here What a beautiful weekend in our area. No humidity with a soft breeze blowing. Folks en- joyed working outside (until the bugs started). Ah! Part of sum- mer. Knighten Plow Day J and Patricia Knighten and son Jimmy will join other fami- ly members during the Knighten Plow Day on Saturday, August 6, beginning at 8 a.m. On hand for visitors to see will be horse and mule plow demonstrations along with antique tractors and other old equipment. Everyone can enjoy an old fashioned hay ride and enjoy the music by the Lazy River Band. Ladies from the Bethesda Methodist Church will be selling home baked goods, fried country ham sandwiches, hot dogs, mexi- cans, and drinks. This annual event will be held on Route 230 two miles south of Shepherdstown. There will be something for all ages to enjoy. Come out and witness how farming was done in the "good old days." Church Celebrates 121st Birthday A birthday reception was held following the morning worship in honor of the 121st birthday of the Grace Reformed United Church of Christ, formerly the Grace Reformed Evangelical Church. On the serving table were two recipes taken from an early cookbook. Slices of nut bread were served from a 1935 recipe of Mrs. John Stan- ley in addition to Janet Whit- more's Blueberry Muffins rec- ipe from the 1950s. Approxi- mately six families becoming the first congregation from the parish in Shepherdstown formed the church. The land was donated by Dr. D.W. Bor- der with Rev. Bausman as the first minister to preach in the little white church. Church re- cords read: "In the year 1884, Grace Reformed Church, Kear- neysville and later when they found a suitable place to wor- ship elected George L. Hoff- man, deacon and Charles J. Roberts, elder, to make plans to build a new church, which was dedicated July 19, 1885. It was during Rev.
