By Lois Lumbra — Looking out my front door windows, the trees are now of beautiful reds and yellows and sun is trying to shine, had clouds all day so far. Our Church rummage and bake sale was a big success and thanks to all the wonderful people that have donated nice things and for all that came to make purchases. We have a lot of nice clothes left. therefore we are going to have another sale on October 22, from 8 -11 a.m. (Clothes Only, At The United Methodist Church)
This past week has brought people in town to enjoy the beautiful foliage and our covered bridges. On my way to the post-office this week, a couple was here from New Zealand, I talked with them for a few minutes, then I have met people from Pennsylvania, New Jersey and New York. We can be so proud of our little Village as its so beautiful year around.
