WWII veterans meeting
All World War II veterans are invited to join us for lunch on Thursday October, 13th at 11:30 a.m. at Melanie's Restaurant in Williston. Our WW II veterans come from 5 different counties so we switch our meeting places around to accommodate all of you. Melanie has catered us in the past so we know your lunch will be excellent. The restaurant is at 112 East Noble Ave. which is Hwy 27. Bring your spouse, a friend or a fellow veteran and join the camaraderie.
Veterans who served aboard U.S. Navy and Coast Guard ships operating on the waters of Vietnam between January 9, 1962, and May 7, 1975, may be eligible to receive Department of Veterans Affairs (VA) disability compensation for 14 medical conditions associated with presumptive exposure to Agent Orange.

The Log Cabin Quilters met Thursday, Sept 29, at the Levy County Quilt Museum. We had dozens of quilt, knit and crochet magazines brought in so everyone enjoyed looking for future projects. We still have some left.
Many people think that all we do is quilt and have good lunches. This year we gave our 25th quilt to the Central Florida Electric Company. We met at their building for many years before the museum was built.

Jamie Baker is praying that the stands at Williston’s Booster Stadium will be filled to capacity Friday night.
He’s not alone.
Jason Cason’s praying, too.
“I really believe that attendance at this event will rival the glory days of WHS football games back in the late ‘80s,” Cason said. “Back then, the entire stadium was filled, and fans filled both of the vacant areas at each end of the stadium.”
The morning air was crisp, and the sky so clear that many stars hung twinkling still, stubbornly visible, now hours after dawn. The northern gust swept bitterly across the frozen fields of soy bean stubble and whipped against the swampy banks of the meandering bayou. The rippling waves lapped eagerly at its ice crusted edges. Certainly it was a fine morning to pester the unsuspecting puddle ducks huddled up behind what little break the tree-line provided.
After a quick adjustment, and then another, on the piano bench, Amelia Erwin leaned forward to pore over a sheaf of music.
“No, I don’t think I can play that one,” she said to the visitor, casting the pages aside and rifling through another stack.
