As soon as the orders placed during the Caramel Festival are received, we will call and let you know. They really are very nice and worth the wait.

Patsy and I led a historical home tour and cemetery walk on this beautiful afternoon. We had several attendees, one whose great-great-great-great grandfather, John McCormick, a veteran from the Revolutionary War, is buried in the old part of the cemetery. Hope you all were able to view the lunar eclipse Sunday night.

The Scattered Homemakers held their September meeting on the 16th at Frisch’s in West Union. Fifteen members and one guest attended. Sharon Swearingen and Dorothy Holbrook Taylor, with the assistance of Jo Ann Knechtly, were the hostesses. Jo Ann had decorated the table with vases of her beautiful dahlias which she gave away after the meeting. Sharon had a reading from the Bible before the meeting. Reports were given and names of people to send cards. There was discussion about election of officers in October and about places for meetings. Ruth Huffman said she and Emily Bunn will take care of the October meeting. If you didn’t get a souvenir of the Bicentennial, Karin’s craft shop still has a few hand crafted items for sale. They would make nice passing party gifts.

The Adams County Library Van will be at the Village Garden Apartments on Thursday, Oct. 1 from 12:30 – 1:30 p.m.

Winchester’s Past (Florence Bryson): He led a useful life, is the way an article about him was headed in the Western Christian Advocate after his death. Rev. Sullivan Wait Edmiston was born in 1832 in Urbana, Ohio and passed away in Hillsboro in 1918, with burial in Winchester. He started preaching in1857 and during his 33 years as a preacher there were more than 3,000 converts. He was preaching in Winchester in 1858-1859. He was the preacher in charge from 1873 until 1876 and was again called to preach in 1883-1884. He married Lavandi Bartlett of Cincinnati and they were the parents of six children. They bought the farm on 136 north that is just south of Horner Road. Beverly Edmiston and Jim Kendall are the great grand children of Rev. Edmiston. (more next week)
