Around South Hagerstown

March 28, 2006|by STACI CLIPP


Here we are in the last week of March - time sure does fly!

Don't forget - there is no school on Friday. Enjoy your day!

Saturday is April Fool's Day - make sure you don''t get fooled too much! And if you do, just laugh along with it anyway!

I'd like to congratulate my daughter, Shelby, on how well she has been practicing and playing her lacrosse games - you have excellent sportsmanship - way to go!


And now, I have to brag just a little - sorry! My 9- month-old grandson Nathan Summers (parents Todd and Danielle) was entered into a Sunburst pageant held at Valley Mall recently. And he won a medal for prettiest eyes and a trophy for first runner-up in boy babies under a year. He also got his fees paid for the next round, if that's what they choose to do! Of course, I didn't need any judge to tell me those things!
