Summer vacation

Wednesday is the last day of school and there will be a 2 1/2-hour early dismissal. So, be on the lookout for those little ones (yeah! summer vacation!)

Library class

Friends of Washington County Free Library will be sponsoring a class for students entering grades 3 to 6. The class is on Japanese Culture and will be held at the Clear Spring Library. It will be held from July 14 to 17 (Tuesday through Friday), from 3 to 5 p.m. daily. Register by calling 842-2730. Sukey Rankin will teach the class.


Prayer and praise

Blair's Valley First Church of God holds a service the last Sunday evening of each month at 7. The prayer and praise service is led by Bobby Repp.

The community is invited to join in this worship.

Also, on June 14, the church will celebrate graduates, honoring them with a Bible (version of their choice) and it also will be celebrating Friend Day. Members are encouraged to bring friends and family.

Did you know?

Did you know that the yellow house at 103 Cumberland St. used to be a clothing store? During the Civil War, the Rebels rode down the street, stopped in front of the store and shot the storekeeper right in his store.
