Hats off to all our faithful volunteers! Especially the one at the Food Bank, the Senior Center, the Lanark Boat Club, the Lanark Golf Club, and the Lanark Village Association.

We all enjoyed Hamburger Night last Friday. We got a nice surprise when Mary Britz came in the door. Always great to see her. You should join us on Fridays at Camp Gordon Johnston American Legion Post 82. Itís just up the street at 2367 Oak Street, right here in the village. Doors open at 5 p.m. for hamburger and chips, and your donation of $6 will fix you right up. Public welcome!

Now every Sunday night, starting at 5 p.m., we have pizza at Camp Gordon Johnston American Legion Post 82. Eat in or take out. Enjoy your pizza in the lounge by the slice, $1 each, or a whole pizza for $8, or take-out is $10. Open to the public.

Here it comes, folks!  Saturday, Oct. 6 is the day for the big yard sale on our golf course here in the village. The sale will roll from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. Donations gratefully accepted. See ya there!

Jeepers creepers! Itís time for The Over 50 Dance at the Franklin County Senior Citizens Center, 201 Avenue F, Carrabelle. Doors open Saturday night at 7 p.m. Bring your favorite snack, beverages, a donation, and oh yes, your main squeeze. Ron Vice will be on hand to spin the platters. Enjoy!

Be thinking about your Halloween costumes, because plans are in the works for a costume dance and contest on Saturday, Oct. 27 at Chillas Hall. Greg K and the Krewe provide the music.

Hope you had a great birthday last Wednesday, Sept. 26 Gene Sewell!

Be kind to one another, check on the sick and housebound Ė and smile, Jesus loves you.

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