Hello Andover friends. Hope that everyone enjoyed the holiday weekend -- so much for hurricane Earl. We do need some rain though.
Don't forget the fifth-grade bottle drive this Saturday morning, starting at 9 a.m. Call the school if you would like to have them picked up beforehand,or have any questions.
Calvary Bible Church is holding its annual Sunday School Rally Day on Sunday, Sept. 12 at 9:30 a.m. There will be a worship service, song time with a skit, information about the upcoming Sunday School year and introduction of teachers. Outdoor games and fun will take place outside following the service and there will be a noon meal on the church lawn. The Barrel Train will once again be offering rides as well. This event is open to the entire family. Please come and join us. For more information contact Pastor Ken Wagstaff at 392-1121.
The Andover Historical Society met on Aug. 31. Present were Trudy Akers, Bev Swan, Eda Perkins, Norma Farrington and Dinah Cutting. They would like to extend their gratitude to Ronnie White for being the "groundskeeper" at the Historical Building in East Andover for many years. Also to Julia Gribbon at Foxgloves and Daisy's for the beautiful arrangements of flowers in the pot in front of the Andover Historical Society building. The next meeting will be in East Andover at the old schoolhouse on Tuesday, Sept. 7. A sorting out and work detail is planned. They would welcome and appreciate new attendees, as the A.H.S. has few members and they share a great responsibility in securing Andover's history.
Happy birthday today, Sept.9, to Lisa Gammon.
Several from town attended the Mountain Valley football game on Friday night. It was pushed up an hour in anticipation of hurricane Earl!
Enjoy the weekend.
