Now for the events of the past week -- AARP met with Gene Olcott presiding. Polly Hockensmith gave an apt invocation and then all saluted the Flag. Usual business followed. Presi- dent Olcott praised the kitchen staff for its fine lunches. He also mention- ed the AARP pharmacy and its number 1-800-845-2178. Fifty-two members were present. The speakers of the day were Clark Hicks, Republican, and Bob Buracker, Democrat, who are running for the of- fice of sheriff. Mr. Hicks said the du- ty of the sheriff is to serve the people. He will insist that any offender be treated properly. If elected, he will work on landfill needs and drug prob- lems. He will monitor those who live here but keep out of town licenses, and he will closely monitor the tax office. Mr. Buracker will give more protec- tion to senior citizens. He says those problems are due to drug problems. State and Federal government must work together along with the local government and more money is need- ed to hire more police. He will monitor the litter problem and keep the tax of- fice open during the noon hours. He stressed the need for all citizens in the community to become involved. The meeting adjourned and all enjoyed a delicious lunch. At the recent Shennondale golf scramble, Henry.Aaron's team came in with a first. On the team were Carlos Ruiz, Phil Minke, Henry Aaron and Ginny Nutzman, who played a very fine game that day. We con- gratulate all[ The Jeffersonian Manor Nursing Home's Employee Council held a fashion show and dinner at the KV Lounge in the Fox Glen area. Models from the nursing home were Shirley Clark, Doll Donovan, Charlene Twyman, Millicent Cain, LaVerne Bishop, Karen Kilmer, and Naomi Hester, and fashions were from Lerner in Richmond, Nichols in Mar- tinsburg, Fashion Bug in Charles Town, Penney's in town, and The Barn in Inwood. Vicki Mason presented the group and then invited all to enjoy a delicious dinner before the show. The dinner was prepared in the nursing home kitchen. The narrator was Cami Nelson. Costumes were a bridal one that suited Avery Baird so well and she also wore a lovely velvet gown and matching hat. Featured were suits with a skirt or pants, casual wear, and colors pro- minent were red, green, and gray. Hats were in evidence and proved to be a big factor this fall. Vicki thanked all who came and then prizes were awarded to Vicki Winston by Mary Kay, Ethylene Clinton, Regina Walker, Deanna Keisecker, Annette Tyler; Leslie Brooks'an d Molly Dean. All models appeared in a favorite costume and one especially, that of in- timate lingerie, drew the oohs and ahhs. The narrator thanked Naomi Jackson (who organized this event and livened up the fashion segment), Vicki Mason, Debbie Lockey and Shirley Lark. All sang "Happy Birthday" to Naomi and left alert to new fashions and weU-fed. Ann Conant is so proud of her daughter, Laura Ingles, husband, Mike, and the grandchildren, John and Penny, who won all kinds of honors at the recent Arlington Fair. This is a talented, busy family and they are now working on things for next year. We congratulate all for their many first, second and third place awards. Saturday, September 10, the Shan- nondale Woman's Club celebrated its 20th anniversary and it was great! Vi- vian Kilpatrick was our head honcho and she did it up fine in every way. The tables were pretty with their white cloths and a lovely basket of silk autumn flowers which later became a door prize. All around the room was evidence of gold and, at the head table, a lovely gold and blue sign denoted it was an anniversary affair. At the head table sat the current officers and their husbands, the charter members, the former presidents and all their spouses. At the organ was Graham White from Frederick, and he played beautiful music of bygone days and often sang. Marion Warfel, current president, introduced the head table of Dottie Gillwald and husband Erhard, Jessie Nowell and Dola Edwards, who is a past president. Those were charter members. Then came the past presidents -- Lorraine Ricketts, Goldie Viana and Buddy, Louise Hall, Ellie Walters and Edna Nethken. About 106 were present. Vivian gave each a beautiful red rose as they were introduced. Fran Poyner, current cor- responding secretary, read letters from those who were unable toattend. Then, Charles Lilly gave an apt in- vocation and Marion urged all to en- joy the lovely buffet. Ernie Becker, our board member in charge of the kit- chen, did a fine carving job. He, on behalf of the kitchen staff, wished all a happy 20th anniversary. We ended this great dinner with a beautiful bir- thday cake which came in with sparklers burning. Ernie introduced the kitchen staff of Catherine Lowe, Verda Parker, Anita and Wayne Riecks and Debbie Grey, and praised their cooperation. Marion thanked Ann Treadway, who had made special covers for the yearbooks for those at the head table. Ann and Catherine Jonson were also thanked for handling tickets at the door. Lil Viana drew thanks for her table settings and lovely flowers. Lyle Lilly, on behalf of the board of directors, congratulated all and noted how we have worked in all areas and have been so generous. Fran Poyner read a computer birth- day card which compared today's liv- ing with that of 20 years ago and if we had forgotten, there was much to re- mind us of those days. Then a few at the head table recalled their days as charter members or past presidents and recalled some humrous items as they reminisced. Lorraine Ricketts said she had gone through the minutes from the very beginning and she related the different slants and issues then and the changes through the years, but she said her impression all the time was "how great a group this was in terms of unselfishness and generosity. Vivian Kilpatrick, chairlady, thank- ed all who had helped in any way and all who came. Then we enjoyed some dancing to the music of Graham White. This truly was a lovely memorable affair and a fine tribute to an equally fine organization. Remember, the Old Opera House Theatre Guild is sponsoring a tea dance at the Shannondale Club Sun- day, October 9, 4 to 7 p.m. Dave Baker will furnish the music, there will be a fine buffet and cash bar.

We had 15 members and two guests. Kay Hocker gave the blessing and we than pledged our allegiance to the Flag. Phoebe Payne introduced Dr. Rocco Cipriano, a microbiologist at the Leetown Hatchery. As Lt Governor of Kiwanis, he told us that the International President Gone Overholt had some main goals. One is the steady concern about enroll- ment in the Kiwanis clubs. Kiwanis also will be stressing educa- tion during the year. After the talk, Kyle Baird announc- ed a projects committee meeting with members Phoebe Payne, Frances Minke and Mae Collins, to decide on a project for our group.

Save Our View Fund Started Residents of the Shenandoah River- Mountain Mission area have establish- ed a war chest into which they are depositing funds to be utilized in a drive to "Save The View From Keyes Ferry Gap Scenic Overlook." According to Dr. Barbara Moulton, the fund has been established in order to mount a campaign aimed at preven- ting a proposed quarrying operation from destroying a view of the Shenan- doah River and surrounding area from an established viewpoint on Route 9 in the mountainous area south of Charles Town. The concern was triggered by an an- nouncement that Broyhill, Inc., a com- pany which specializes in the quarry- ing of limestone, had purchased large acreage along the Shenandoah River below the Bloomery, and had receiv- ed an okay from the West Virginia Department of Energy to establish operations there. This brought a first response form a resident of the area, Rodney Dias, who objected to possible destruction of the scenic view, and who received sup- port from other area residents in- cluding Dr. Moulton. As a result of Dias' attention to the matter, the Department of Energy will hold a public meeting on the proposal on Thursday, September 22, in Charleston. However, it is understood efforts are being made to have the hearing held in Jefferson County. To this end, the "Save Our View" fund has been established at the Bank of Chales Town and persons wishing to contribute to the cause may make their contributions there., ea All Infants Items NOW 25% Off Through Saturday Misses Long-Sleeve Blouses With Two Pockets Originally $30.00 .ow s199 20.% Off All Sheer Toe Caress Panti-Hose i 25 % Off Selected Boys and Girls Fashion Tops Open A New Penney Charge and Get S5 off Your First Purchase Plan Tea Dance These four members of the Theatre Guilding of Charles' House, Lily Cain, Ethel Tamker, Frances Catozella and Stonesifer, are busy planning for a tea dance to be held 9 from 4 to 7 p.m. at the Shannondale Club.
