8 SPIRIT OF JEFFERSON Farmer's ADVOCATE -Thursday, December 23, 1999 Engagements e Weddings e Announcements ./' Association Holds 49th Ann :/i? : i: ii Y Healthier Jefferson County recently sponsored its second annual alcohol-free holiday drink contest at Jefferson Memo- rial Hospital. The purpose of the contest was to show that people could have delicious drinks and lots of fun without us- ing alcohol. Healthier Jefferson County is helping change unhealthy be- haviors by offering the community holiday drink alternatives. Jefferson County ranks as the second highest county in the state in drinking and driving prevalence and third in the state in binge drinking. The excessive use of alcohol is dangerous not only for the drinker, but also for the non-drinker. Recipies were received and narrowed down to three final- ists, who prepared their recipes for a panel of judges (Lorna Frye, Kristi Murray and Lisa Dunn). First place ($50 Wal-Mart gift certificate) went to Sarah Fleming for her ' erky Holiday Punch". Second place ($25 Wal-Mart gift certificate) went to Patty Dorsey for her recipe 'qKootenay Koffee Punch". Honor- able mention went to Robyn Lance for her "Orange You Glad Its Alcohol Free Punch" recipe. For more information on Healthier Jefferson County, or to obtain copies of the winning recipes, call Pam Holstein- Wallace at 728.1690.

The order of the Pythian Sis- ters, the independent auxiliary of the Knights of Pythias, is located throughout the United States and Canada. The work of the Pythian Sisters covers a broad field. It is not confined to the local temple nor to the field of Pythianism alone. Pythian sisters are always ready to assist in civic projects or give help to any needy causes, such as the Ronald McDonald House, the Jef- ferson Food Bank, etc. The altruis- tic work reveals many hours of ser- vice, donations of love, consider- ation and charity for others. It is said that it is more blessed to give than to receive and this spirit is exemplified in the work of the Pythian Sisters. If you are interested in joining the Order, or would like more in- formation, contact Beverly A. Grove (304) 725-9053. l l l l l l II Ill lllll llll l with us!
