Mrs Peg Murphy, Sister of the Annual Christmas Party A Success On the 13th of December the Ladies Auxiliary to the VFW Post 1505 held its annual Christmas party. Guests for the evening were the comrades of the post and the Hockey team sponsored by Post 1505. These boys were indeed honored guests of the evening and were in full uniform. They made everyone proud that here in Keeseville we can have such fine young boys. They were the best-behaved group we have ever seen and would have made their parents proud if they could have been there. All the food was enjoyed by them as well as everything else. Director Don Plympton, Asst. Director. Mike McLean and Coach Gerry Corbett were present. Don introduced each boy! We, the Auxiliary are happy to have been able to give *he boys this dinner, but were saddened three days later to hear of the death of young Jeff Hill, a member of the team. This young lad knew he had this heart condition yet his short life was wrapped up in hockey and his dream was t. o be a hockey player and we in America should learn from the courage he had. it would make us better Americans. I know that Jeff will always be an inspiration to the VFW team and they will try harder to win for Jeff. After the dinner Pres. Mariar. La Chance welcomed alt the Aux. Sisters, Comrades .and guests, then went on to the giving of gifts to all officers of the Aux., for the good, faithful work they do al I year.

The 60 or so voices were in their best forms and the renditions were a pleasure to hear. The program opened with several organ selections by Miss „Miidred Stone followed by the opening remarks and welcome from the pastor, Rev. Lawrence Curtis. Participating in the concert were the choirs from Peru Community Church, the choir from the United Methodist Church in Keeseville, also from. St. John the Baptist Church choir; the Keeseville Men's. Glee Club, and members of the choir from- Our Lady o f Victory Church in Pittsburgh besides other individuals from Keeseville. Mrs. Bertha Irwin of Peru was the.pfanist. The readings of the Scriptures which interspersed the singing were given by Rev. Roland Gonyo and\ Rev. Thomas Robillard of St. John the Baptist Church, Keeseville and Rev. Lawrence Curtis. A solo, \St. Peter\ (Aria) by Earl Harrington was greatly enfoyed, as well as the singing of many Christmas.hymns and best-loved carols, climaxed -by the Hallelujah Chorus from the Messiah.
