There will be a spaghetti supper at the Traphill Fire Department on Saturday at 5:30 p.m. This will be followed with a silent auction and a cake walk. This will be a great way to enjoy a cold winter evening. A few of the auction items are four day passes to the SeaLife Aquarian at Concord Mills, four one-day passes to the NASCAR Hall of Fame, two tickets to the Food City 500 at Bristol Motor Speedway on April 15, two any-day passes to MerleFest, and lots of other great items. Crabgrass Bluegrass Band will be making music for the event.

Traphill Branch Library has several new books ready to check out including “Amish Cooking Class: The Celebration” by Wanda Brunstetter, “The Cruel Prince” by Holly Black, “Dark in Death” by J.D. Robb, “A Death in Live Oak” by James Grippando, “Fifty Fifty” by James Patterson, and “The Great Alone” by Hannah Kristen.

It was good to hear that Susan Swaim, Lynn Goodman and Shannon Billings survived a car wreck last Saturday with only minor injuries.
