Habitat for Humanity of Washington County celebrated its 20th annual Habitat Dinner Auction on Saturday at Hagerstown Community College's Athletic, Recreation and Community Center.

About 400 people paid $45 per ticket to attend the casually festive fundraiser. Burford said she hoped it would raise around $60,000. Though many attendees opted not to dress befitting the theme, those who did went full-tilt '20s.

I have to admit that it was a great decision to release a movie called "Warm Bodies" in February. The title makes for a terrific invitation to get out of the cold and into a theater. If the film were called "Warm Bodies Wrapped up in Snuggly Blankets and Drinking Rich Hot Cocoa," it would really be unstoppable. Maybe if there's a sequel. The film tells the story of a former human who falls in love with a current human. The former human is a zombie called R (Nicholas Hoult), and when we meet him he has nothing better to do than be a zombie all day. His daily activities include staggering around an airport, occasionally grunting to his friend M (Rob Corddry)

The Victor Daniel Mills reunion was held July 14 at Red Run Park in Waynesboro. The reunion was named after the siblings' late father. The theme was “Cherish the Moment.” The family originally had 18 siblings and three half siblings, and originated from Williamsport. There are eight remaining siblings, including Elmer Mills of Glenville, W.Va.;  Edith Beeler, Hilda Crilly and Lloyd Mills, all of Hagerstown; Peggy Ressler of Waynesboro; William Mills of Williamsport; Eddie Mills of Chambersburg, Pa.; and Floyd Mills of Frederick, Md.
