Weekend goes fast

Good morning, friends. Did you have a full and productive weekend? It seemed to fly by and here we are again into a new week with many possibilities and a full schedule.

The open house at Funkstown Volunteer Fire Co. was well attended and quite successful. Thanks to all the volunteers and members who do their part to keep the community safe and well educated.

St. Andrew's United Methodist Church, across from the South End Shopping Center, will hold its apple dumpling, pie and soup sale Saturday from 9 a.m. to noon.


St. Mary Catholic School will host a bonanza at the Elks Lodge on Robinwood Drive on Saturday, Nov. 7.

Tickets cost $25, which admits two people. Tickets include dinner, draft beer, soda and homemade desserts. Cash prices include: first ticket and every 20th ticket wins $25, the 100th and 200th tickets wins $135 (celebrating 135 years of St. Mary School) and the last ticket drawn wins $2,500.

Centenarians sought

On Tuesday, Nov. 10, the Washington County Commission on Aging will host its annual centenarian luncheon in honor of all individuals in the county who are or will be 100 years of age or older this year.

If you know someone who has or will reach this milestone by the end of the year, please notify Hannah Cramer, deputy director, at 301-790-0275, ext. 209. Anyone reaching this landmark, whether living independently, with family or who are in assisted or long-term care facilities are being sought to receive this recognition. Even if the individual would be unable to attend the luncheon, the agency would still like to honor his or her achievement.
