Drive out cancer!

Despite remarkable progress in the fight against cancer, there are many cancer patients today whose greatest challenge isn't lack of treatment. It's lack of transportation. Right now, the American Cancer Society's Road to Recovery program needs volunteers to drive cancer patients to and from their treatments.

There is a critical need for drivers in the outlying communities of Washington County. If you have a car and insurance, safe driving skills, and can drive as little as one morning or afternoon a month, you can give someone peace of mind and the chance to get to their potentially lifesaving treatments. For more information, call your American Cancer Society at 301-733-8272. Call today.

Country butchering, pancake breakfast

Don't forget, the Wilson Ruritan Club's Country Butchering & Pancake Breakfast will be Saturday beginning at 6:30 a.m. Come out and enjoy all-you-can-eat pancakes with one serving of sausage or puddin', orange juice and coffee. The cost is $4. Meat goes on sale at 7 a.m. This will be the last butchering of the season.

Did you know?

Did you know that there was a store on the corner of Cumberland and Martin Street? It was called Peterman's. William T. Peterman kept a diary of the daily happenings around Clear Spring.
