Around Boonsboro

Pastor honored

Greetings, neighbors! Hope you didn't blow away Sunday!

The cold didn't keep the crowd away from Trinity Lutheran Church in Boonsboro as Pastor Joseph Donovan was honored for his 30 years of service to the congregation.

Statistically, the pastor has performed hundreds of weddings, baptisms, confirmations and funerals, which pale in comparison to the innumerable acts of Christian kindness and love he has shared with the entire Boonsboro community.

The ministry is one of those 24/7 on-call kind of jobs for which the financial rewards are not great. Thanks, Pastor Joe, and all local ministers for what you do, known and unknown.


Dance planned

The Boonsboro High School Service Club is holding a Dance-A-Thon on Saturday from 6 to 11 p.m.

The event will benefit the American Cancer Society of Washington County, and will be themed "Dance For the Love Of...." Tickets cost $5 per student for the event, to be held in the cafeteria at the high school.

Saturday supper

Rohrersville Ruritan will hold the next oyster, ham and turkey supper on Saturday, from 2 to 5 p.m.

All-you-can-eat dinners cost $13 for adults and $6.50 for ages 6 to 12. Bring your own containers for carry-out. The dinner will be held in the Rohrersville Ruritan School, just off Md. 67, four miles south of Boonsboro. In the event of inclement weather, call 301-432-5541 for cancellation information.
