Joyful Noise

Joyful Noise will be holding a free Christmas concert at Curtin United Methodist Church on Sunday, Dec. 4 at 3:30 p.m. Refreshments will be served after the concert. Call Larry Beahm at 814-355-9588 for more information.

Winter reminder

The city reminds residents that sidewalks and footpaths covered with ice or snow must be sprinkled with salt, cinders or other anti-skid material. And, when the wintry stuff accumulates to an inch or higher, we have 24 hours to shovel it off or possibly be fined. Don’t shovel or blow snow from sidewalks or driveways into the street, though. Not only is it dangerous to traffic, it can also result in a fine.

Love the library

The Adopt-A-Magazine Campaign helps Ross Library buy one of the 110 magazines required to meet state standards. Also, the Book-A-Month Campaign helps buy new books for residents of all ages. A donation of any amount is appreciated. For more information, call the library at 748-3321.

Happy birthday
