As he stood before almost 200 people, many if not all of whom were members of his congregation, Maj. Robert Lyle said two, maybe three men attended his first Sunday service when he and his wife arrived seven years ago to take over leadership of The Salvation Army's Hagerstown Corps. During a farewell luncheon for Majs. Robert and Karen Lyle on Sunday, Advisory Board Chairman Don Funk listed several facility improvements during the Lyles' tenure, including the construction of the $1.8 million Shifler Family Community Center that housed the luncheon on George Street in Hagerstown's West End.

The Washington County Commissioners voted 3-1 Tuesday to contribute $30,000 to The Salvation Army for a new multipurpose building at its headquarters in Hagerstown. The funds will be paid over two years from the county's hotel-motel tax fund and will go toward a gymnasium in the new building, the commissioners said. Cultural and recreational projects are among several designated uses for the hotel-motel tax. The Salvation Army plans to build the roughly 10,000-square-foot addition on the site of its current outdoor play area in the 500 block of George Street, Maj. Robert Lyle told the commissioners.

The Salvation Army will break ground Friday on an 11,000-square-foot community center to be built on George Street, according to Maj. Robert Lyle. The Jim Shifler Family Community Center will house a gymnasium, computer room, game room and offices, Lyle said last week. It is the first phase of a project that also includes renovating and expanding The Salvation Army's Transitional Housing Program for women and children, and purchasing a building for its thrift store. “The Salvation Army's been serving in the West End community since 1949, and we just have a tremendous need for more women and children shelter space,” Lyle said.

HAGERSTOWN - "Who is Jesus?" The pigtailed 12-year-old in purple pajama pants and a bib hesitates, then removes the pacifier from her mouth. "God's son," she says, and Kaleb Jewell, 16, hands her a token to drop into a board with pegs to determine how much candy she gets. This is trick-or-treat with a twist, a la The Salvation Army's Hallelujah Carnival, a Halloween alternative where costumed children play ring-toss and tip-a-jug for candy prizes while a Christian rock band plays in the background.

The red plastic kettles that started appearing in Washington County on Monday are a symbol of The Salvation Army's mission to serve others, said Amy Whittington, chairwoman of the local Salvation Army's advisory board. For some, the kettles and bell ringers are a cheery sign of the holiday season, Whittington told those gathered at the Valley Mall's Food Court on Monday as The Salvation Army kicked off its holiday fundraising drive. Others might see the kettles as an inconvenience or feel a twinge of guilt as they walk by and realize they have no cash in their pocket, said Whittington, admitting to the latter on occasion.
