12 SPIRIT OF JEFFERSON Farmer's ADVOCATE - Thursday, November 12, 1998 Tus O cawl Karen Scott 696 Tuscawilla Hills 725-0158 Hi Neighbors! I hope you are enjoying these November days. We can't complain although my boys do want snow! Even though I enjoy snow, it can wait till closer to Christmas. Have you planned your Thanksgiving dinner yet? I get to cook ours this year, and I am ex- cited. I have always wanted to cook the dinner ever since I was married. I think Morn is finally ready to turn over the reins for good. The boys and I are planning decorations and table pieces. Since I haven't cooked the dinner in awhile (I cooked it once years ago), I am busy figuring out when to start everything! Oh, but I am having fun! smiles Ask And You Shall Receive At the Citizens' Association meeting last month, a few voiced their concerns over Tuscawilla be- ing used as a shortcut between Route 51 and Summit Point Road. Neighbors at my end of Ridge have seen an increase in traffic becom- ing lost on our Dead End cul - de- sac, Cherry Court. Yards have been torn up and signs knocked down by lost tractor trailers trying to turn around! We were afraid that this would only get worse when the humps are taken out of Route 51, so we requested a Dead End sign near the turn for Shenandoah Street. We got it last week, and we have only seen one lost concrete truck! Kudos to our road maintenance crew and Al Hooper for correcting this potentially dangerous situa- tion. Contest Update The staff at our local branch bank, F & M Bank, had a lot of fun at their recent Halloween Cos- tume Contest. Over twenty chil- dren participated in the contests and the games that followed. The staff was disappointed that their pictures did not turn out clearer, but I do have a list of the winners. Winners in the 0-3 year old di- vision are as followers: Most Original - Madison Hines, Cutest - Zachary Began, and Funniest - Aaron Renner. Winners in the 4-6 year old di- vision are as follows: Most Origi- nal - Paul Sibrell, Cutest - Paula Irving, Scariest - Samantha Stilley, and Funniest - Dylan Ceravalo. And", finally, winners in the 7 and up division are Lesley Riley - Most Original, Cutest - BreAnn Diehl, Funniest - Brendan Irving, and Susan Irving and Lindsay Dillow for Most Original. Plans are already underway for next year's contest and party. Congratulations to all of the winners, and a big pat on the back to all of the staff. Geek Yeah Liz is an official geek now! She found out last week that she will be inducted into the Na- tional Honor Society in December! Being a former geek myself, I am particularly proud of her! Yeah, Liz! I guess the teachers have called you "Karen" for a reason scary, isn't it? smiles Food Drive This Saturday Cub and Boy Scout #948 will be distributing door han- gars explaining the upcoming food drive in Tuscawilla Hills. Please read these hangars and keep them on the inside of your front door so that you will not forget to place the food outside next week. The boys will be back on Satur- day, November 21 to collect the food. This food will be distributed to the Community Ministries Food Pantry. Let's show them that Tus- cawilla cares! Please give gener- ously next Saturday. The Gift of Music Last week a piano student of Susan Tabb's called to tell me what a wonderful neighbor we have in the 'Hills. Seems Susan has been teaching piano for a number of years and loves sharing her gift of music to young and old. The student who called me takes lessons with her daughter, and both enjoy it immensely. Ku- dos, Susan, for sharing your tal- ents! Open House Take the time this Saturday .to reminisce with old friends at Page Jackson Elementary School. This year marks twenty years for this kindergarten through third grade school. Former teachers, aides and principals will be on hand to celebrate and see the changes to the school. To me, this is all weird. Neigh- bors that grew up in Charles Town can understand. You see, I went to Wright Denny for first through third grades. (Kindergarten was op- tional when I went. I went to the current Ranson Senior Center for kindergarten). For fourth through sixth grades, I went to the now Board of Education Building; then it WAS Page Jackson. To me, go- ing back to an open house at Page Jackson means seeing my "old" teachers Dale Manuel, Cynthia Snyder, Betty Roper, et al. What it really means is going to see my early teachers Vickie Lotts, Bill Reed, Dot Tay'lbr, and four others who never taught at the current Page Jackson. Confused?!? Me, too! Anyway, David and I are hop- ing to get Llz to go with us. I'm sure her all time favorite teacher, Gail Sherman, will be on hand for the festivities. In fact, I'm hoping to see several that I had and/or taught along side of a few years ago. I also want to see this ru- mored eight foot cake! smiles Hope to see you at Page Jack- son between 2 and 4 p.m. on Sun- day. New Sign Speaking of former schools, have you seen the new sign at Wright Denny Elementary? It re- ally stands out and looks great. If you haven't, spin by Congress Street the next time you need to go through town. Christmas Christmas is only 43 days away! Have you started your Christ- .mas shopping? I am almost done the shopping portion. The boys and l will be busy making gifts in the upcoming weeks. If you see all of us glued together, you will know that Timmy got a hold of the glue stick! smiles Seriously, I can't figure out ,what this year's "gotta have it toy" is, have you? The bouncy Tigger is cute, but how often can it bounce before it gets on one's nerves? smiles The boys have not "needed" anything yet, and I'm hoping that they will stay low-key (yeah, right). In fact, last week at our lo- cal superstore, we stopped by the DKS Ministries Forgotten Chil- dren tree and took an angel tag home with us. The boys eagerly shopped for toys for our selected child and will wrap them this weekend and return them to the box at the store. I was proud of their selections, practical yet loads of fun. We have told all of our friends so that all of the angels will be gone before long. If you can help, stop by our local superstore and select an angel today. Perfect Ornaments Mark your calendars because the Christmas season officially Starts on November 21 when the Asbury Methodist Church holds its annual bazaar. The boys can not wait to select their tree ornaments and eat the delicious fudge and cookies! Last week they were gazing at the Christmas shop in a local store and were begging me to buy some Christmas "stuff'. I told them we couldn't until the church bazaar kicked off the season. They both remembered the fun of finding that perfect ornament at last year's bazaar so they wanted to wait. New Neighbors Several new neighbors are now calling the 'Hills home. Please welcome Paul and Jes- sica Toye Clark to Baltusrol Court, as well as Bruce Clabaugh to Baltusrol Court. Marion and Christy Taylor have moved to Northridge Drive. The Hines, Darren and Tiffany, have also moved to Northridge Drive. Helen Mattei has moved from Baltusrol Court to Berkeley Court, Hilda and William Beall have moved back to Westhall Drive. Welcome back, you two. And finally, the Russell family has settled into their home on Douglas Drive. Welcome, one and all. Enjoy decorating your new homes for the holidays. Dual Purpose Craft David came home on Monday and shared this cool turkey craft with us. Timmy, Andy and I had fun doing it. Cut a turkey head and neck out of brown paper. Cut a beak out of orange paper and glue it on the head. Now cut out feet (yellow and orange) and two turkey wings. Find a great school paper you want to display or use a blank white sheet. Glue the turkey head on the top of the paper. Now glue the wings on either side, and feet on the bottom. David and Andy used blank pa- per and wrote "This year try ham!". Timmy got to use his be- loved glue stick and glued shapes all around the turkey's midsection (and to the table, and to himself smiles). David said that his teacher let each student pick a great paper to display for this turkey craft, and now they are hanging in the hall. What a nice idea! Feathers of Thanks This year while your family is watching football while dinner is cooking, have them fill out large feathers with what they are thankful for. Have the kids collect the feathers and assemble a large turkey on a door or window near the table. This is a neat spin that doesn't put family members on the spot. They can add to the turkeys as the evening winds down. The goal is to see how full many feath- ers the turkey will have the by the time everyone leaves. Family too far-flung to get to- gether? Mail them feathers to fill out and return or call them with what they want included. Make sure you take plenty of pictures to distribute. Enjoy! Christmas Craft It is not too soon to start on those Christmas gifts. This one can be done by all family mem- bers, even the wee little ones. Find a carpet sample the size of a doormat. Make sure it is bounded around all of the edges] Paint your children's feet with wa- terproof paint and let them walk on or place their footprints on the carpet. Add their names, and a huge "welcome". Recipients will love these personalized doormats! Enjoy! Birthdays Bill Chesley celebrates his spe- cial day tomorrow! Flip Dorsey celebrates his birthday on November 14! Happy birthday to Darren Hardy on November 15.
