JS plans Veterans Day service

JERSEY SHORE — The 14th Annual Veterans Day Prayer for America Service will be held on Friday, Nov. 11 at 7 p.m.

The Fair Play Brass will be playing at 6:30 p.m. at Jersey Shore Presbyterian Church, 235 S. Main St. It’s the old stone church with a clock in the steeple.

Led by the Jersey Shore Ministerium, the service will once again feature the honor guard, scriptures, prayers, patriotic hymns, and special music by the Fair Play Brass, a multi-church choir, and others.

This moving service is an inspiring time to stop amidst the hurry of life and say “thank you” to God for our veterans, our freedom, and our country, and to ask God to bless those serving now, our leaders, and our country and world.

Jersey Shore pastor and Army Chaplain Father Bert Kozen will also speak briefly.

Come show your support for our veterans on Friday Nov. 11, in prayer for America! For further information call Pastor Charlie Winkelman at 570-398-1909.

SPCA holiday

photos are Saturday

LOCK HAVEN — The Clinton County SPCA Christmas Pet Pictures will be taken Saturday at Citizen’s Hose Fire Co. on Bellefonte Avenue (next to McDonald’s).

Photos will be taken from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m., and appointments are still available. To schedule one, call the shelter at 570-748-4756.

As always, Santa himself will pose with your pet for the photo.

Some families use this opportunity to have their holiday photo taken for the year, and all family members are invited to get into the frame and pose with their pets. (Santa will join in or bow out, as requested.)

Sue Cavanaugh, who takes the fall pet photos at the Pet Extravaganza every year, will be taking the holiday photographs Saturday.

SPCA board member Danielle Barney designed this year’s holiday scene, which is on a country Christmas theme.

Pet owners and families may choose from a 3×5 or a CD with the photo on it. A discount is available to those who buy both, and both options can be taken home that day.

This is an annual fundraiser for the SPCA, and all proceeds go to the care of the pets at the shelter.
