24 SPIRIT OF JEFFERSON Farmer&apos;s ADVOCATE -- THURSDAY, DECEMBER 1, 1988 i 9'i: ,p 00BLETOWN Marianna Smallwood Dial 725-5707 Sorry my column was missing last week due to illness. Too late to wish my readers a joyful Thanksgiving but not too late to say that I hope you did. The Harvest Festival, once again, met with all good expectations. Seven- ty people, including members of Mar- vin Chapel United Methodist Church, the Job Corps Choir, the Majesties, the Revs. JoAnn Alexander and Kent Tice, their children, local members and friends, enjoyed a typical Thanksgiv- ing dinner and an evening of music and singing. Gregory Dillow left Friday, November 11, with a group of other ii hunters for Ashland, Maine. He en- joyed every aspect of the trip which in- eluded hunting for white-tail deer and black boar. Three deer were bagged. He enjoyed the scenery even though the land was flat, swampy and woodland -- the north woods of Maine. The group returned November 20 at 4 a.m., tired but satisfied with the trip, Many pictures were taken of their ex- perience. Plans are being made to return next year to this area where they found the folks very friendly, speaking with a French accent. Bob and Susan Sheely, along with her sister, Jane Rissler, spent the Thanksgiving holidays at Long Marsh Meadow while their sister and brother- in-law, Pat Rissler and Jim Rogers, SUMMIT POINT ii i Families. A group of related people. After thinking about this week's col- umn, that word, families, just kept coming into my mind. Everywhere I went, by myself, with Am)' or with Daniel. I kept seeing families. It was Thanksgiving week and children were home from school and members of families had travel- ed long or short distances to be together and to take advantage of time away from their usual activities. When I went shopping. I saw families discussing what gifts to buy each other and children hinting at what they would like Santa to bring. When Daniel. Am), and t went to a restaurant in Winchester for Thanksgiving dinner, the tables were all filled with families, some tables of many people or some with just young couples and their very small children all dressed up in ties or ruffles. And when Daniel and J ate dinner at Shu Chen's in Charles Town last Satur- day night, the restaurant was ab- solutely packed - not a table was emp- ty...all families. I recognized several people having dinner with their college-aged offspring - home on break, and the), all seemed so happy to be together. At my little bed and breakfast my rooms were filled all week, with families - couples - who were together in an area not familiar to them, but they were still together. When I started calling some people to see how they had spent their week, again the common refrain was that they had spent the time with family - the Eisners, the Hales, the Stagners, the Snyders, the Slavers, and the Welshs, and the list goes on and on and Oil. I have always envied so very much the fact that everyone in Summit Point seems to be related to everyone else - one huge family. At Thanksgiving we are just that - thankful to have family - to be together and to have so much compared to the rest of the world and to live in this beautiful village. Last week. Edith Gtassford put a note in my door to tell me that she was recently called to Kingwood, W. Va., where her brother is very ill. Daniel Marner, Baltimore, Md., spent an evening with the Glassfords before go- ing to see West Virginia University play football. Last week was very hectic for me. I drove Amy to Winchester to have her wisdom teeth removed, had guests every night, spent time studying and doing paperwork for my college classes and spent Friday with Daniel to celebrate his birthday. Now it's hard to believe that Christmas is so close. So much to do and so little time. Does everyone else fell so rushed and McBride & ASSOCIATES, INC. REAL ESTATE 535-2114 OLDER 2.STORY.

The three Kehne's were taken by ambulance to New Windsor Hospital, but later dismissed. Their truck was demolished. Terry's parents were notified and came to the hospital.
