Perry church holding fish fry on Fridays
Thank you to all of the volunteer firefighters who responded quickly to last week's school bus crash on Route 201, near the Willow Inn. Also, a big thank you to the crew members from Fayette EMS. We would like to offer our deepest sympathy to the family of Donna Rose, who passed away from injuries sustained in the crash.

Thank you to Lori Lamanna and Mary Jane Winterhalter, who knew the answer to last week's trivia question. The bell that rings at the Sacred Heart Church in Dawson was named St. Barbara.
This week's trivia question : There are a number of "special" days in the month of March, but one is really special for lovers of baby dolls, and it can really remind those born in the 1950s and 1960s just how old we are getting. Ok, here goes -- March 9 is the birthday of a very popular doll. Can you tell me who she is/was• If you can, give me a call at 724-529-2391 or drop me an e-mail at firstname.lastname@example.org. You can also send me a card or letter to 276 Banning Road, Dawson, PA 15428-1175 with news of upcoming events, birthdays, etc.
A thought for the week. This one is from author Louise Driscoll. "In your heart, keep one still secret spot where dreams may go." That's it for now, friends. Until next week, keep smiling and have a great week!
