When Bethany asked the caller, "Which grandson?" he was unable to answer the question, and any possible isopen, thereisafineselection doubt about the call being a of used paperbacks and liardZ '' scani 'Was limSi ated:' Readers should be wary of this scare, and if you receive such a call be suspicious and make the caller prove that he is, in fact, a relative before believing anything else that may be said. The usual way this scare operates is that the caller will say he has had some back luck (medical issue, auto- mobile accident, etc.), often in a foreign country, and needs to have the person receiving the call send enough money to get him on his feet again. VFW Bingo News By Dorothy Brower The Friday night bingo at the VFW Hall had 30 people come in to play bingo. It was really chilly outside but warm inside. The pots were $30 each. Both of the jack- pots decided not to go out, so maybe you can convince them to go home with you when we have our next bingo, which will be the 12th of January, 2018. The regular jackpot will be $60 for 57 numbers called. The special jackpot is still $800 for 56 numbers called. Vicki Jackson went home with the $30 consola- tion prize. Thanks to all of our players for their participation this past year. We appreciate you. See you next year and Merry Christmas from the bingo crew. Thank You The family of Louise Sly would like to thank every- one who donated to the Fair Fund in memory of Louise. Thanks also to everyone who attended the funeral and to Tami's Pine Valley Funeral home for the compassionate, caring service.

In 2017 they donated the profits from their annual Biscuit Feed to the Joseph and Heather Farley family totaling $1,700. Donations from the Community Ice Cream Social totaled $207, which the Grange donated to the Pine-Eagle Education Foundation. In November the Grange hosted a Community Turkey Dinner.

Ongoing Activities This winter, there is an ongoing schedule of activities for you to choose from and participate in. On Mondays and Fridays at 9:00 a.m. and lasting for an hour, are chair exercises. Participants find them to be very helpful for increasing flexibility. They are good for arthritis and core strengthening. On Mondays at 3:30 p.m. there is Tai Chi, and everyone is welcome. On Wednesdays at 9:30 a.m., crafters, seamstresses and quilters spend the day working on their own projects and often share tips and ideas with each other. Bring some- thing for lunch as the activity lasts until about 2:30 p.m. de- pending on what everyone is working on. On Wednesdays at 4:30 p.m. there are yoga classes. Everyone is welcome, whether they are new to yoga or experienced. Bring a mat if you have one. All of these activities are available at no charge although the $1.00 donation each time to help defray the cost of heating the Grange is genuinely appreci- ated. Participants are hopeful that Maureen Stanciu will continue her Healthy Life- style series in March. Every Thursday at noon, Senior Meals are served at the Grange and everyone is encouraged to come, and bring a friend! Bingo at the New Bridge Grange is renowned, and if you haven't tried it, this winter is a great time to start! Come and join in the fun on the first and third Saturdays of every month. It starts at 7:00 p.m. There's popcorn and lemonade to snack on while you play, and there is a refreshment break about halfway through the evening.
