Here, local Red Cross volunteers, Vonda Kuhl (left, standing) and Bloodmobile Manager Kay Miller (right, standing) joke with Visiting Professor of Mathematics Mark Ellis of Glenville State College.

(staff photos by Dave Corcoran, Sr.) Historic Hospital's weekend tours Constructed in the 1860s, the Old Weston State Hospital, which has been closed for over a decade, is a rare landmark, being the largest cut-stone building in the United States. Unfortunately, it has been occa- sionally vandalized since being va- cated by the state's Department of Mental Health. On the other hand, a Lewis County preservation coalition is trying to save the building by publicizing its rich historic heritage via weekend tours. It's open Sat., 10 a.m.-3 p.m. and Sun., noon-3 p.m. . The general public is encouraged to vts~t and to take the modestly-priced tour. Many residents of Gilmer County worked at this once large and thriving mental institution. -- Friends and Fctmify Remirffsce ~ H. R. Marks Family celebrates The 23rd H.
