Carl stayed home and caught up on some writing he had to do while all was quiet. John Bell was a busy boy for a while -- he painted the front porch for Mary and Bob. We had our annual meeting last Sunday and had a very nice turnout. The meeting went along smoothly and I feel was very productive. Last Saturday Dee and Dutch Hardy were really surprised when they were given a luncheon by their children to celebrate their 25th wedding anniversary. It was held at Cliffside in a !private room. The food was Proved To Be Most Interesting SHEPHERDSTOWN, W. VA. -- The Summer Enrichment Program at the Shepherdstown Day Care Center, open to community children, ended with a center first, an indoor track meet.. The multi-scheduled event attracted rainy days without cease. When the last day of the session dawned raining, an adjustment was in order. Children and staff congregated in the Bike Room, the course was set and the meet began. "On your mark, get set, go" was heard along with hearty cheers. A great deal of trying ensued with winners, almost winners and nearly winners receiving participation ribbons for their efforts. Mter the exciting meet, a picnic followed in the lunch room. The bag lunches packed earlier by the children were devoured with zest. It developed into a "Happy Last Day" after all. Not all outings, however, required adjustments. The field trip to Devil's Backbone Park in Maryland progressed as plan- snake and her eggs proved to be an added feature for the children. In addition to the monthly library visits, the older center children enjoyed the weekly films offered at the Shepherd- stown Public Library. Randy Tremba, rector of the local Presbyterian Church and previous center visitor, was discovered by a new group of youngsters as a talented story teller. The children delighted in his visit and his original story material. To everyone's pleasure, he consented to return. A summer session without Drama Day is unheard of at the center. The little actors and actresses from the Sunshine Room, 2-3 year olds, presented '9"he-Little House" climbing up on the stage to portray their story character. The Rainbow Room, 4-8 year olds, dramatized a variety of Mother Goose Nursery Rhymes while the audience chanted the rhymes in unison. The di'amatic endeavors received enthusiastic support and applause from the audience. Persons 'nterestedin the cen.

VA. -- The West Virginia Apple Ad- visory Committee today an- nounced a recommended producer price for processing apples in West Virginia. The statewide marketing and bargaining producer committee is suggesting a producer base :wice of no less than $7.35 per hundredweight cwt., for U.S. canners 21/z inches up. It is also recommending a base price of $5.00 per cwt. for juice apples. J. Kenneth McDonald, a Berkeley County grower and committee member, said his group made the price suggestions based on crop estimates in apple producing states, "Product inventories, carry over from 1977, are low," Mc- Donald said, "but demand for apple products, especially juice, delicious and there was even a beautiful wedding cake. Family and friends were there and some of BRA folks -- the Cones, the Monks, the Clark Brownings, Pauline Vale and me. Gladys Goech and Bertha DeVese were unable to be there-- they missed a lovely time. A very nice young lady called me and asked if I would include an item pertaining to the church, St. Andrews on the Mount, located at Rt. 9 and Mission Road. They are having a Day of Fun on August 26 from 11 a.m. until ?. This is for the benefit of the Mountain Community Center, same location, which I understand is to be available to all of us in the area. They will have a cakewalk, fish pond, ring toss, penny pitch, with prizes and a barbecue chicken, dinner for $2.25. Later in the day there will be a watermelon eating contest with a cash prize. Does sound like fun. Mary Bell has heard from Ginny and she arrived in Denver without incident and was able to stay with friends along the way. She hopes to find an apartment this week and then next week she ned. Arriving at their destination, the children hustled out of the cars and rode every playground apparatus in sight and hiked over the nature trail. The bag lunches were eaten, while the park ducks quacked and begged, a funny situation indeed. The center wishes to thank Yvonne Miles, former center employee, for providing transportation and aid in supervising the children on their outing. The tadpoles received from the Hammond's farm developed into frogs and served as a harbinger to another field trip. The trip took the children to the Shepherd College Biology Lab, where they were welcomed by Dr. Carl Bell, associated .with the department. A very large toad was viewed while Dr. Bell explained the difference be. tween toads and frogs. A black settles into her new position: Personally I think she will have to have another week off just to unload her car. When she left i Bob told her that ff she had a flat tire just buy a new one -- don't attempt to unload that trunk! An opportunity for the center children to view "big people' engaging in story dramatization was provided by the Children's Literature Class ,at Shepherd College. Mrs. Betty Byer, in- structor of the class, invited the children to the college. The "big people" employed a variety of techniques and offered a wide range of literature to the young audience. The rope tails, pinned on ears and foil-covered thun- derbolts were a "real hit" with the children. Other activities enjoyed by the children included the "following: making leaf rubbings, planting a terrarium, having snack at Betty's Restaurant, water play outside in the wading pools, making gifts for center friends is high. He said .that his advisory committee had learned that all )rocessors have low inventories, and are sold out of somepoimlar products. The Berkeley County farmer also said that competing fruits, especially cherries and blueberries are in short supply. The Apple Advisory Com- mittee is affdiated with the W. Va. Farm Bureau. Other members of the advisory committee, all apple growers, are: Hugh Caperton, Cmrles Town; Robert Eglinger, Augusta; Charles O.
