Good morning, dear friends. I trust that your Thanksgiving holiday was blessed. A plentiful amount of food and family were enjoyed and cherished. Christmas decorations are up and shining.
Get your outside decorations up in the next two weeks so that you are ready for Olde Tyme Christmas on Friday, Dec. 9.
Residents in town should have found luminaria kits dropped off at their homes over the weekend.
Instructions for setup and use are included in the bags.
Olde Tyme Christmas runs from 6 to 9 p.m., so be sure to have the candles set up and glowing by 6 p.m.
Salon raises $1,100 for shelter
Linda Sue Renner, owner of Universal Hair Studios, LLC hosted Cuttin’ for Critters, a benefit for the Humane Society of Washington County.
Renner donated 100 percent of her salon proceeds from the two-day event, which resulted in a cash donation of $1,100 to the animal shelter.
“I am so blessed and thrilled to be able to make this donation to the Humane Society of Washington County. I love animals and plan to hold an event for (the shelter) once a year,” Renner said.
In addition, Hagerstown Canteen Services provided refreshments for the event.
Pam Finster of Hagerstown Canteen also donated several gift baskets that were raffled off each day of the event.
“We’re very fortunate to have such generous supporters in our community,” said Paul Miller, shelter executive director.
The salon is at 1826 Dual Highway, Unit D, in Hagerstown. For more information, call 301-393-4949.
