Enjoy open mic night Monday

Monday, Nov. 17 is open mic night at the Whitehall Public Library, from 6:30 to 8:30 p.m.

Come on out and listen to the talents of others, or feel free to stage your own performance.


The nights are getting longer as we enter the thick of autumn.

With Thanksgiving just a few weeks away, try to remember those community members who may be struggling. Think about donating to our local food banks and assisting charities that help those in need. This way, everyone will have a happier holiday!
