Our find his way here twice within as many weeks. I just hope he doesn't misplace his map! Each time I see an old photo of our town in days gone by, I marvel that we still have a generation of folk among us who had to walk to school (miles and miles if they are to be believed), or when they rode anywhere it was by horse power, the real kind. with a horse. Yet these folk have also seen a man land on the moon. It just makes you wonder what is yet to come. It is amazing that we humans can adjust so well to the many changes that happen. to us in a lifetime. Then why do we worry so when we send a child out the door to their first day of school? WISHFUL THINKING "Why can't you walk down the main street like everyone else?" My spouse has been asking me for years. I admit to using the side streets and back walkways or alleys in each town we've ever lived in, but I do keep walking. As of lately there seem to be more and more folk congregating in the area between the bank parking lot and the back of the fire house. I just wishso- meone would look into the matter, it may be quite harmless but then again... Christmas Lights' Funds' Goal Near A drive seeking $10,000 for the pur- chase of new Christmas decorations for downtown Charles Town is only $300 short of the goal, it was announc- ed today. The current collection total is $9,700 which will be used for the purchase of new white lights for some 55 trees in the downtown area along with the necessary rewiring to handle the lights. Merchants, service organizations and community residents have been quite generous in regard to the holiday effort. Campaign officials noted the lights have already been ordered, but merchants wishing to utilize the same type of lights may purchase them for $8 a box. Those wishing to order the lights should contact Bill Chesley at J.C. Penney Company. Additionally, Geraldine Wlllingham, who is the chairman for the November 26 Christmas parade at 4 p.m., an- nounced the theme for the event as "Christmas-A-Glow," in keeping with the initial use of the new lights.
