Greetings, neighbors!

Hope things are good with you! Those of you caught up in a crazy fall schedule must be looking forward to "falling back" this Saturday and getting an extra hour of sleep time in!


Boonsboro High news

The 2007-08 yearbooks have finally arrived. Graduates and anyone else no longer attending the school may pick their books up in the front office after 9 a.m. each weekday.

To prevent error, books will not be given to friends or family members without written permission from the student. Permission can be e-mailed to advisor Mrs. Shingleton at

The yearbook staff has about 80 extra books that are being sold "first come, first served" for $64. Pre-sale for next year's book will begin Nov. 5 and end Nov. 26.


All students who are seniors or graduating juniors must have their senior pictures turned in to the yearbook staff by Dec. 1. Printed photos of any size can be dropped off to be scanned (names should be written on back in pencil) or check with the photographer to see if photos are automatically forwarded to the school.


Special events

The Boonsboro Family Worship Center, 7605 Old National Pike, is hosting two special events this week. On Thursday, the community is invited to the fourth annual Hallelujah Night from 6:30 to 9 p.m. Come and enjoy and evening of fun, games, hayrides and lots of candy!

On Sunday, Nov. 2, the congregation will honor seniors with a Senior Adult Day in the 10:30 a.m. and 5 and 6 p.m. services. During the evening service, Southern gospel star Willis Canada will present a special music ministry program. Canada has traveled for more than 25 years spreading the love of Jesus Christ through Southern gospel music. He has appeared on the Trinity Broadcasting Network and The Daystar Network. He has done extensive work with the ministry to the military, stateside and in Germany. Audiences have been tremendously blessed by his tenor voice, warm personality and his originality in delivering the message in song.
