Fire department’s breakfast is Jan. 25
by Brenda Payne
I hope all is well with everyone and that we all have survived the first snow of the season and the icy rain – a few days of school have been missed – hope the school board had plenty of days banked, so the kids won’t be going to school until July.
Don’t forget about the monthly fire department’s all-you-can-eat breakfast on Sunday, Jan. 25 from 8 to 11 a.m. Come hungry for bacon, eggs, sausage, gravies, apples, scrapple and more. The address is 4160 Rectortown Road in Marshall.
Let’s show some birthday love to:
Ruth Drone, who turned 94 on Jan. 12. We need to give some get well wishes to Mrs. Drone too – so please keep her in your prayers for a speedy recovery.
Lynn Windingland on Jan. 14
Judy Windingland on Jan. 15
Renita Bland on Jan. 16
Gavin Robertson on Jan. 14
Cassie Taylor Waln on Jan. 15
David Carter and Justin Carter on Jan. 19
We hope all of you have a wonderful day.
Keep your news and events coming. Thanks for everyone’s support. Have a great week.

New coffee/gift shop coming to Marshall
By Brenda Payne
Summer is coming to an end. School starts in just a couple of weeks, so please drive extra careful in the mornings. Be patient as the buses pick up the children.
Congratulations to Jessica Ward for winning the 42” Television raffled off to assist Melody Glascock’s cancer fund. Thanks to all who bought raffle tickets.
Have you heard about the new business coming to town? Gwynanne Rogers and her family are opening “Little Foxes Java and Gifts” on Main Street. Full coffee house with lattes, expressos with drip coffee of different flavors, tea and hot chocolate, plus an awesome gift store for all occasions. They are hoping to be open by the first of October. Good luck and I can’t wait to visit.
Looking for something to do with your children on Saturday? Stop by Cool Spring United Methodist Church at 3322 Cobbler Mountain Road in Delaplane for their “Kids' Day Cookout” (for kids of all ages) – 11 a.m. to 2 p.m. Enjoy hot dogs, hamburgers, sides and desserts – face painting and games, as well as Bingo and prizes for all. It's fun and it's free. Questions or further information, call Pastor Martin at (540) 837-9031.
