Cone Dial 725-5488 Thanksgiving is over and everyone seems pretty full of turkey and leftovers except us. We ffad two Thanksgiving din- nets out, but no leftovers. Seems strange not to have a turkey carcass to worry with. Maybe I'll get one for Christmas. Last week was a busy busy one at St. John's Episcopal Church in Harpers Ferry. On Monday Lee Kitchen, Peggy McCullen, Cyndy Kitchen and Elaine Begeman spent the day at the'church making choir robes for the Junior Choir. They did a heautift job and the robes are lovely. Wednesday was busy for the Thrift Shop at'St. John's because an anonymous Donor had left a truckload of clothing etc. to be sorted, priced etc. Lots of stock at the Thrift Shop and it's open from 10 to 2 each Wednesday. Try it. Friday was the day for the 2rid Annual Day-After-Thanksgiving Day Dinner at St. John's. Twenty people set down to well-laden tables containing all sorts of delicious food from turkey to cheese cake. Joyce Bentley with her three youngsters Beth. Tim, and Terry; Elaine Begeman and daughter Susan: and Camile and Michelle Chartrand prepared the feast. They said it was their way of saying "Thank You" to their Str. John's family which brings us to Sunday. The Childrons Choir, bedecked in their new choir robes sang at the ten o'clock service. The song, "I Sing a Song of the Saints of God" not only is so 'beautiful in itself, but seems especially suited for a Childrem Choir. : There were a few misty eyes in the congregation.
