The 2016 Lilly-Washington Historical Society Calendar is now available at Galls Insurance Agency. The cover this year is very unique and a once in a life time photo. Pictured is the North Folk Southern locomotive that was patriotically painted to honor Police-Fire and EMS and has traveled the system in their honor. The locomotive is pictured on the tracks near the carnival grounds with the Lilly Fire Company engine directly in front of it.

While at Galls getting a calendar you may as well book a sleigh ride for the night of Saturday the 28th. Ernie from Mystic Haven Stables will have his horses and sleigh here from 5:00 PM until 9:00 PM. Rides are only $3 a person. The sleigh will hold up to a family or group of 12. This is always an enjoyable event during the annual Christmas tree lighting get together.

The Penn Cambria junior and senior girls competed in a Powder Puff flag football game Friday evening, November 13 at the school’s football field. Other than a very cold evening the players had a good time with the seniors beating the juniors in this second annual venture sponsored by the cheer leading boosters.

A reminder! Order some Christmas Candy from the local Knights of Columbus chapter. Orders must be in by November 29th.

Food for thought! Hershey Candy products are now made in Mexico, which took away American jobs. The Knights at least make their candy here and donate funds to needy people locally.
