Voice of Freedom:
October 31, is Halloween! There will be children coming to your door to trick or treat. Please be kind and give them a treat! Be careful driving in case there will be older children going out at night. It’s a fun time of the year for everyone! Halloween has become quite popular and you can see many more houses being decorated and it’s nice to just drive
There is a group of people (Freedom, Unity and Albion) that meet at the Lovejoy Health Center in Albion every Monday morning in the kitchen where they hold their meetings. Weigh in starts at 7:30 till 8:30 and then the meeting begins. If you feel you would like to learn more about proper and healthy eating, why not come on out and join the group. The first attendance is free, and from there you can decide if you want to join. We have lots of good information, fun and games. You can contact me at 382-6024 if you are interested or just show up at the meeting. By the way, TOPS stands for “Take Off Pounds Sensibly”.

The Historical Society still has cookbooks, photos, Historical Scrapbooks, for sale and has now added a Bi-Centennial coin, which contains the dates of 1913-2013. The first 100 year coin (1813-1913) is no longer in circulation. Also the Bi Centennial Program Book is available to purchase.
All these items would make a lovely gift for any occasion, so why not contact Viola Greeley or Lorraine Overlock and support the Historical Society by purchasing one or all four of these historical items! The price of each item is only $10.00.
Support your Historical Society and take notice how much has been done to the old Town House regarding the restoration.
