Patriot News 10/22/20


Last Friday, the Red HOT Hatters celebrated both Christmas and Halloween at the same time for a great big Red HOT Hatter “Xtra Fun Xtravaganza” at the home of Co-Queen Joyce Johnson. This will probably be the last meeting of 2020.

  Don’t forget! Voting this year will not be at the Patriot Town Hall — but will instead be at the Posey Township Fire Department, located 18474 Highway 250 on Tuesday, October 27th from 8 a.m. to noon and on Wednesday October 28th from 2-6 p.m.

  Please continue very special prayers for Eylah Leppert and her parents as she struggles with her health issues.

  Prayer List: Posey Tappers Kathryn Turner, Jake and Mickie Rader and Lulu Belle Thomas; Bill and Sharon Levell; Red HOT Hatters Laura Riga and June Lack; Eylah Leppert, Firefighter Ron Brunner, Pam Minch, Barbara Barnhill, Barbara DeNoon, Ellyn Kern and Jerry Brown. As well as all law enforcement officers and their families as well as everyone affected by the current national unrest; everyone affected by the COVID-19 pandemic.

  Anyone interested in purchasing the Historical Sketch of the Town of Patriot by H.F. Emerson (1931) that I have featured for several months may do so at the Patriot Town Hall for $10.

  Just in time for Halloween! How about some Hocus Locus buns? They’re called that because the marshmallows ‘disappear’. Aunt Bea (Sharon Levell) and I are both anxious to try these.


1 Refrigerated package of Crescent Rolls

8-10 Marshmallows

½ Cup of Melted Butter
