Just a reminder that Our Lady of Mount Carmel church will be holding a stuffed chicken breast dinner this Sunday, February 22nd , from 11:00 AM until 2:00 PM at the church hall on Hilltop Road. You can dine in for $9 or take out for the same price. Children can dine in for $4.50. Call 884-0205 for further details. This is a good dinner to enjoy in this cold weather.

The Lilly Washington War Memorial Association mailed the annual fund drive appeal last week. Your support of this worthy organization is both crucial and important to the successful operation of the field that does so much for area children while bringing memory to those who died in the service.

The Lilly Conrad Chiropractic/ Lilly American Legion entry in the Altoona City League will play their home games at the Lilly field as they pursue their 12th City League Championship this summer.

I am anxious to see the townships completion of the recreation center/ pavilions and restrooms at the new Little League field. A refreshment stand is also being placed there to serve that field during home games. We will soon have a recreation area to envy by other communities. Wont be too long bfore the walking trail can get full use again. Come on Spring!
