This just in! A reminder that Monday and Tuesday, Aug. 29 and 30, the Franklin County Senior Citizens Center will be closed. On Monday, they will put in the voting machines and on Tuesday we vote. We will reopen Wednesday, Aug. 31.

Hope to see you this afternoon at lunch. The volunteers will prepare and serve poppyseed chicken; mashed potatoes; green beans and dessert to go along with tea or coffee. A donation of $5 is requested and will be collected at the desk. While you’re there you may as well take a chance or two on the pie and cake raffle. The chow line forms at noon right after the Pledge of Allegiance and the blessing. Hope to see you there.

Get your huge hamburger with chips every Friday night at Camp Gordon Johnston American Legion Post 82  on Oak Street right here in the village. Your donation of $6 will be collected at the bar. We also have a cake/pie raffle. Orders taken after 5 p.m. for Meals on Wheels. Call 697-9998. (We can’t enjoy the pizzas on Sunday until September.)

The First Saturday Dance will be Sept. 3 at the Lanark Village Boat Club. The door will be open from 7 to 9 p.m. Jim the DJ will provide the music.

Be kind to one another and get a grip, tie a knot and hang on to Jesus.

Until next time, God bless America and our troops, the poor, homeless and hungry.
