Memo- gin at 7 p.m. Annual Christmas Program A capacity crowd was on hand Sunday evening for the annual Christmas program and hymn sing at the Grace R.U.C.C. Braun Harnstead on the keyboard led the opening hymn, "Silent Night". Brenda Eisenhart welcomed ev- eryone and introduced each class presentations from the kindergar- ten, primary, middle, junior, youth and adult. The children were de- lightful telling the Christmas story with song, recitations, and musical selection from Corey Walsh, clarinet, and Tony Yowell on xylophone. The Christmas play "Away from the Manager," with narra- tion by Patricia Knighten. Cast members were the shepherds, J. Knighten, Corey Walsh, Tony Yowell, and Jimmy Orndorf. Beth Walsh, Brad Walls, and Laura Baker portrayed the kings. Little Stars were Megan and Deanna Jenkins, Breanne DeGrave and Gabby Mickley, with the animals Derek Walls and Conner Mickley. In addition to the above men- tioned, other participants were Lisa DeGrave and Dorothy Burnett. All cast members as- sembled on the stage for a final hymn sing led by Hamstead. Santa Train The excitement of the children waiting for the Santa Train to pull out of the Brunswick station, and knowing that on board were Santa and Mrs. Claus, they hardly could contain themselves. I accompa- nied several of my 4-H members and parent's for this annual event. We adults felt an excitement too. When we boarded the train, wait- ing for Santa to arrive, the young people in our car starting singing Christmas songs and looking around, others joined in. The adrenaline was running with the anticipation of Santa coming through the door. Finally, there he was, dressed to the hilt in red and white, accompanied by Mrs Claus with a bag of goodies for each of the little boys and girls. Looking around, I notice the adults were enjoying it as much, I know I was. How Many More Days?

The Unveiling Breakfast Sampler began at the National Park Ser- vice Harpers Ferry Center Na- tional Park Service employees and their friends were invited to at- tend. There was a sampling of seven recipes found in the cook- book: Cocktail Smokies, Baked Pineapple, Historic Furnishings' "Egg Thing", Shenandoah Valley Apples and Sausage, Banana Bread, and Billie's Spicy Pine- apple-Zucchini Bread. The main purpose of the Harp- ers Ferry Center Social Activities Committee (HFC SAC) is to pro- mote a better ycorking atmosphere through wholesome social interac- tions between the employees, families and friends of the Harp- ers Ferry Center community. While most of the members are employees of the Harpers Ferry Center, the organization is pri- vate, non-profit and their work is personal. The Committee is an ac- tive part of the National Park Ser- vice family. The Cookbook Com- mittee consists of Diana Cummins, Dee Dee Dinges, Juanita Gustines, Virlissa Peer, Trese Lindsay, and Julie Schroyer. Cummins and Gustines co-chaired the project This year the HFC SAC found their community extended beyond the local geographic reach When Ranger Joe Kolodski was killed in the line of duty this summer, he left a wife, infant twins and a five- year-old- daughter In an effort to assist the family, the SAC enlisted families and friends and put to- gether a very special cookbook, Cooking by Design. Profits from this book will be sent to the Kolodski family. What started out as a small 200-recipe book grew into a beau- tiful 386-recipe cookbook in seven categories. Robert Stanton, Direc- tor of the National Park Service, wrote an endorsement for the cookbook. Cooking by Design is published by Cookbook Publish- ers, Inc. in a beautiful softbound book with comb binding. The recipes in Cooking by De- sign encompass a wide variety of cultures - from those homegrown in the eastern United States to ex- otic recipes from around the world - making the cookbook a sampling of the diverse heritage within the NPS family. The cookbook fea- tures recipes from the Harpers Ferry area National Park Service employees and their families and friends as well as from the em- ployees of the Great Smoky Moun- tains National park where Ranger Kolodski worked seven more days until Christmas KRA Lighting Contest The Kearneysville Residents Association sponsored a Lighting Contest, with the winners names posted in the next column. Con- gratulations to the winners, but remember, that all the homes in our community are winners with their own individualities when it comes to decorating for the holi- days.
