Dot Snyder 725-7769 August, the eighth month of the year, was named for Augustus Caesar, the first em- peror of Rome. August is the height of sum- mer and the longest days of summer are past when August arrives. It is one of the hottest months of the year, but most of- ten the nights are cooler than July. Inse~ts seem-t9 be noisier and more numerous than in any other month. The mosqui- tos seem to be more plentiful this year, perhaps due to all the rain with puddles around. Blueberries, bl'ackberries and raspberries are ripe this month and the peach harvest is underway. Goldenrod and other tall plants ,brighten the fields and roadsides and by the end of the month clohds oTpollen will be in the air to aggravate people who are allergic to these plants. The special flower for the month is the poppy and the gem is the sardonyx or peridot. August is the month to catch the last of summer with vaca- tions, picnics, swimming and attending fairs.

Bible School Saturday, from 2-6 p.m. the Summit Point United Method- ist Sunday School started their Bible School. It will meet once every two months until June 12, 2004. This session was attended by 20 children, who went on a tour of Egypt. They had set up a museum with articles from Egypt and Kathy Manning, who had traveled in Egypt ex- plained each item. They studied Moses and Jo- seph and played games of ~marbles and held r~lay races. Bricks were made from clay that the children mixed from day found near file church. The children ate food similar to food in Egypt, such as grapes, figs, apples ~nd goats milk. Every- one had fun and is looking for- ward to the next tour, which will be October 4 from 2-6p.m. and will focus on Babylon and Ur. Jefferson County Fair The Jefferson County Fair will be "geared" up to go on Sunday, August 17 and will continue until Saturday, Au- gust 23. Items for exhibit will be accepted on Saturday, Au- gust 16. The first Jefferson County Fair was organized in 1953 and was held at the Charles Town Jockey Club grounds on ~r 16-17. I remember this very well. Each homemakers club was responsible for an exhibit telling of their work. The exhib- its were on card tables in front of the seats in the grandstand. Card tables and accessories had to be "toted" up a long flight of stepe I was only 32 years old at the time, but that about did it for me and the older ladies, too. There were complaints and the next year we were given space on tbe ground fioor. The fair was very successfi~ but all the ani- mats were housed in the stables, which were a distance away. The entertainment was "home grown" and I believe was partly responsible for a good attendance. The Jefferson High School bands and the Appleland Band, which I be- lieve was composed of a num- ber of older men, played. Also, Bill Peer and his Melody Boys and Girls were there and inci- denta~y, the vocalist was Patsy Cline (before she became fa- moss in Nashville). To top it off, a king and queen were chosen for the people having the most blue ribbons for their adult exhibits and a prince and princess from the youth exhibitors. Those chosen were: King-Norwel Jenkins; Queen-Mrs. Garland Heflebower; Prince, McGary Snyder and Princess, Nancy Hockensmith.

Library The new library being built in Summit Point is really mak- ing progress and it will not be long until "a dream has been accomplished." This has beena dream for many for so long, and it has finally come true. The first library was very nice and surely was appreci- ated, but to have more space will be great for the community. The building was small, but it housed a wealth of knowledge and all one had to do was use it.
