Call Bob Medill for collection of your rummage material, or Mac McWilliams. Call Nellie McWilliams if you can help with the sales.


February 20 snow trip. We tried to snow-shoe to Rosary Lakes, however the snow was so deep that the trail blazes were impossible to follow. We all enjoyed fine snow-shoeing thru the woods on this sunny day. Snow-shoers were: Bill Belmore, Helen Hughes, Clarence Landes, Helen Landes, Helen Smith and Margaret Wiese, Leader.


Thanks to you who have taken the trouble to give us this information. The final date is January 1, 1967, but the earlier better.

The first one of the season was held on Feb. 17. The group that assembles for this event is small, but no less enthusiastic. Music was enjoyed; the Castelloes bringing their player. Some dancing was indulged in Some shins were toasted in front of the fire, pop-corn and a great variety of tasty cakes, cookies and candies were enjoyed. A movie of excavations and discoverys of a civilization that dated back 2000 years before Christ about 100 miles south of Mexico City was shown and proved to be most interesting. An all around enjoyable evening. And A wonderful time to just talk.

ART BRUNIG who has been involved with Uncle Sam for almost four years and stationed in Germany has been released and will be at home at 816 Adams street some time this month.
