Patton Library hosts Murder Mystery Dinner
The Patton Library will host a murder mystery dinner at the Queen of Peace Social Hall, Patton on Saturday, June 20 at 6 p.m. Doors open at 5:30 p.m. Tickets are $25 and include a turkey dinner with all the trimmings. Tickets are available at the Patton Library or by calling the library at 814-674-8231. “A Calculated Murder — a musical murder mystery,” takes place in medieval Patton — then known as Paton. King Rhombus is irritating the kingdom and his page with his silly laws and annoying his daughter with an arranged marriage. Add in a wizard with a broken invisibility cloak, a knight in shining tinfoil, a jealous brother, a conniving queen, a poor peasant boy, a sarcastic jester turned assassin-for-hire, a fairy godmother, and a toga wearing prince for a lighthearted comedy. All proceeds benefit the Patton Public Library. 062015

NORTHERN CAMBRIA — The Barnesboro Centennial History Book, originally published in 1994, has been reprinted. If you missed out on the original run, you're in luck! The second printing is now available. The original printing of 2,000 copies in 1994 sold out in 1996.

     The books are $40.00 each if picked up and $40.00 each plus $6.00 shipping and handling if ordered by mail.
     You may choose which non-profit you wish to support. If you wish to support the fire company, order from Hope Fire Company, PO Box 1217, Northern Cambria, PA 15714 or pick up your copy at Charlson's Furniture (on behalf of the Fire Company). If you would like to support the library, pick up or order your book from Northern Cambria Public Library, 1030 Philadelphia Avenue, Northern Cambria, PA.
