Olde Tyme Christmas scheduled for Dec. 8

FUNKSTOWN - The trees in Funkstown's downtown still are heavy with leaves, but the town already is preparing for Christmas.

Funkstown's Olde Tyme Christmas is from 6 to 9 p.m. Dec. 8 at Town Hall, Town Clerk/Treasurer/Tax Collector Brenda L. Haynes said.

According to event planner Rich Gaver, who spoke at the Oct. 9 Town Council meeting, holiday balls featuring the 1790 Edmar Manor will be released this year. Volunteers still are needed for the event, and people interested may call Gaver, he said.

Ham, oyster dinner to benefit community

FUNKSTOWN - A Funkstown Lions Club event featuring ham and oysters will benefit the club's community projects, a club member told the Town Council at its Oct. 9 meeting.


According to information on the ticket for the ham and oyster dinner, adults can eat all they want for $14, while children's admission is $7. The dinner is Oct. 28 from 11 a.m. to 7 p.m. at the fire hall.

Trash collection bid accepted

A trash collector that will begin picking up the garbage in Funkstown in November will follow the same schedule as the company it replaces, Town Clerk/Treasurer/Tax Collector Brenda L. Haynes said.

Greenscape Trash & Lawn Service of Williamsport submitted a bid that was more than $500 less expensive a month than what is charged by Allied Waste, which now collects the trash, according to figures provided by Haynes.

The council approved moving forward with the creation of a contract with Greenscape at its Oct. 9 meeting.
