Greetings, neighbors

How nice to enjoy such temperate weather for the fall tradition - Boonesborough Days. I sure hope the overnight rain didn't ruin anyone's plans.

Library offering two programs

The Boonsboro Free Library will offer two programs this week.

o On Wednesday, Wii Game Night for Tweens and Teens will begin at 5:30 p.m. in the community room. Bring a friend, enjoy a snack and try out the new Wii.

o On Tuesday, Sept. 21, "The Doctor Is In at the Library."

Dr. William F. Bodenheimer will discuss hypertension, known more commonly as high blood pressure.

The discussion begins at 6 p.m. and will include causes, symptoms and treatments for the common health problem.

Registration is requested for both programs. For more information, call 301-432-5723.

Yearbooks available at Boonsboro High

The words all BHS students and new grads have been waiting to hear - the yearbooks are in.


Yearbook staff began distributing the books to students during lunchtime Friday, and members of the class of 2010 can pick up their pre-ordered copy in the office beginning today.

Please do not call the school, just stop in the office between 9 a.m. and 3 p.m. to pick up your yearbook.

Also in yearbook news, the photography staff is recruiting candid photographers who enjoy taking game and activity photos, and who attend school functions on a regular basis.

A staff badge and free admission to most events, along with a discounted yearbook for next year, might be available to the right candidates. Photos must be publishable in quality and content.

Interested photographers should speak with Mrs. Dyer and/or plan to attend Monday morning meetings beginning at 8 a.m. in room C-26 at the school.

Watch for news later about how parents can submit their photography to the yearbook staff. Any questions can be e-mailed to Mrs. Dyer at">
