Ill " I I II 2nd Toys for Kids Run set for July 4 By noon on Sun., July 4, all bikers should be signed in for the 2nd Annual Lewis County Toys for Kids Run at the Hill Top Inn on Camden Hill. According to Joe Hitt, co-owner of the Hill Top with his wife, Debby, several hundred dollars were raised last year in order to purchase Christ- mas toys for the needy. The Glenville Odd Fellows Lodge bought and distributed the toys in Gilmer County, he adds. The last stop on the Toys for Kids Run will be the 33 Country Club, also on SRs 33/119, just east of Glenville. For further information, watch this newspaper or call Mr. Hitt at 269-7283 (or Squeek or Brenda at 269-1750).

Gilmer County Senior Center has a new bulletin, outlines many activities The latest bulletin of the Gilmer County Senior Center was recently printed and mailed by the center's staff. It outlines the many activities taking place at the center, including the schedules for the era fts,'eQ.mputer, and exercise rooms, as well as the luncheon menus. If you are a senor and were missed, call the center at 462-5761 to get on their mailing list. Also, if you are a senior and haven't utilized the new facility, the management and staff invite you to try it out. Almost eight years ago when the Senior Center's board of directors decided to build a new center, most people thought that this was just dreaming. Well, the dream came true! The little Gilmer County Senior Center in a very small, remote rural county raised $1.5 million to construct a state-of-the-art facility. The Center's Executive Director Mary Oldaker, President Helen James, the board, staff and volunteers -- all working together in a model of constructive unity --- pieced together the funding via governmental grants and private contributions. The late Frf.d Killingsworth made the largest single private contribution, U. S. Congressman Alan Mollohan spearheaded the federal government effort and State Senators Joe Minard and Bill Sharpe and State Delegates Brent Boggs and Bill Stemple handled obtaining the state govern- ment grants. ~lmlll RI I Illl I I I I I While I supply I lasts I I I u 1 Gallon I I I I I I I I I I I I I I !. m|n|nml|||mml I I I I I I I I I I I I I 770779 238 Depot Street- PO Box 110 Weston, WV 26452 (304) lll I 1 III m Ill i Ill I1 Division of Natural Resources Warns: Don't Feed the Bears!!!
