SHANNONDALE Olga Waiters Dial 725-6102 "And the goblins'll get ya if you don't watch out]' however, at the Beatty's home one spotted more than amiable goblins. Over one hundred folks took a trip to the land of witchery and the occult. Sitting around theTard were lighted pumpkins. Donnie Jr. was the keeper of the graveyard where the names of Darth Vader, Dracula, Werewolf, the Thing, etc. and even a Vacancy tombstone, could be found. One left the graveyard and met a monster who spoke in an unearthly voice. Traveling back and forth on a clothesline was a real grotesque figure whose eyes lighted up and whose voice and hands made one shiver; a head rose out of a wooden box; one ducked for apples and a masked monster arose to threaten. All things were the ideas of Don, Sr and Ruth Ward and Phyllis Beatty followed orders and painted and devised the eerie concep- tions, using luminous metallic paint; and all objects glowed in the dark and were visible for quite a distance. After all the thrills, shivers and screams, John and Ruth Ward served the sur- vivors with cider and apples and cookies. Jessie Nowell thoroughly enjoyed Shakespeare's "The Tempest." Becatme of the afe~ where, it was presented in the Arena Theatre it took on the aspect of a magician's play and was thoroughly enjoyed by all.

Hope all were the happiest! Celebrating this week are Irene Weed, Claudia Feller! Enjoy that 39th one, gals! Our condolences go out to Joan Boland whose sister died; to Shirley Swab and her family and to the Petti Family who just lost a son in a motor- cycle accident. You will just have to pray harder and more often cuz we have far too many sick folks this week: Charlie Bolyard, Clint Williams, Ted Keiv- ington, the Petti family, John Strawbridge, Benny Riecks and his family, Edna and Jack Nethken, Elaine Brinkley, Kathleen Fox, and I am so happy to hear she came to our brunch on Sunday, Mike DeWitt, Sue Nett, Maureen McDermitt, Jim Owens, Pat Printz. Some are mending nicely but all can use some words of hope and cheer, so get busy folks! In the recent reenactment of Elec- tion Day 1860, Bill and Maryjo Mcln- tosh took part as members of the First Md. 5th U.S. Cavalry to which Bill belongs. Both folks wore 1860 civilian clothes and Maryjo sold apples for 2 cents apiece.

Ellie read a letter of thanks from the VA thanking us for our donation of $100 to be used toward TV sets. After a delicious "lunch, our speaker for the day was Alice Sparling who is known to many for her OOH parts in plays. She read a varied group of poems with anima- tion and expression and one especial- ly, "Brenda's Bathroom" written by her friend touched all because of its humor and truth. In October 44 souls plus a most effi- cient, pleasant bus driver, Tom Knoth from New Jersey and a most per- sonable, knowledgeable, humorous escort, Lane McKellar from California set out for a tour to the Romantic Gaspe. These 44 persons hailing most- ly from the midwest and the west, were as close to a handpicked group as anyone could get. All were prompt, loved fun, were pleasant, congenial and the 13 men proved that chivalry is not dead. I left N.J. with a friend, Gertrude Cozzens, but first had en- joyed a trip to her hoose because of the kindness of my near brother, Jim. When the limo picked us up at Gert's home, that was the very last time I handled my baggage until our return to her home. We left the Waldorf Astoria about to travel 2300 miles. We were given "Hints for Happy Touring" which we perused with our handsome escort. He said he had ordered no rain but if it did, please remember that "when the heavens cry the earth shall live." We left N.Y. and headed ffwu the Catskills, circled Albany and then din- ed at the Georgian Restaurant at Lake George where we ate and overlooked this great lake. I must say that food was spectacular thruout the entire trip as we were allowed anything on the en- tire menu and we all ate like the an- cient Romans. En route we saw the Erie Canal System, namely the Mohawk Canal there. We were then given a lesson by our escort in French conversation which we might need. He often interspersed this with his humorous cliches or jokes; we were told about the exchange of money and the need for items at the border.
