If you missed the Pretender's play "The Wedding From Hell" the past two weekends, you missed a fun evening. The cast gave a superb performance; the reception dinner was prepared and served by Mindy Roberson and the high school cheerleaders. The prizes (for solving the murder) were all donated by local business. Great Job!

As winter quickly approaches take the time to visit your elderly neighbors and make sure they are warm, dry and have enough food etc. If you are preparing a Thanksgiving dinner share a plate with someone that may not be as fortunate.

Quoted from an essay written by Marcia Hamm (probably in the 1950s): "The Balch School -- Close to our home is an old school house named the Balch School, and I would like to tell you a little about its history. The land where the school is located once was part of the land which now belongs to my parents. Many years ago the people who owned the land then gave about an acre of their land to a church group. A church was then built on that land and used for sometime."
"During that time school was being held in a house across the road from the Phillip Tuthill home. This house was at one time, the home of the Balch family. Frederick Balch, writer of "The Bridge of the Gods," was a son. Mr. Balch is buried in the Balch Cemetery."
Take time to laugh for it is the music of the soul.
