Hello, to all! While H-H-H usually means “Hazy, Hot & Humid” (which it has been), it can also mean “Hello,” “Hang” in there, and “Here” is the news of Upper Adams for the week! Where does the time go so fast? Enjoy the beauty of nature with blue skies and pretty sunsets that only God can make. Many of you are enjoying vacations, VBS, reunions, camping, sporting events, carnivals, bingo’s and much more. Please continue to pray for peace, our troops/families, good health and happiness while reading the news. Enjoy the best times of summer as it doesn’t last long. Have a nice week.

We send birthday wishes to Martin Shenk on July 14; Garron Schriver of Bendersville, July 18; Pat Nevada, New Oxford, July 19; Pastor Wesley Smith, Jr. (formerly of Upper Adams), July 20, also to Joe Tocco, Jr., Aspers. Enjoy!

Happy 60th Anniversary and Congratulations to: Ron and Susie Nelson, York Springs, on July 21. Way to go, keep it going!

Kudos and Thanks to all, including specials in the Gettysburg Times such as bringing back the “Getting to Know You,” and including carnival listings, and thanks also to our emergency personnel who help us so many times in so many ways. God Bless You!
