“This is the 10th time the service has been 24 hours long,” DeAngelis said on Wednesday morning, Sept. 11, standing outside the tent erected each year on the lawn in front of the church. He said as far as he knows this is the only...

editor@millertonnews.com

Organizers of the Sunday in the Country Food Drive are working hard to raise as much money as possible to buy full turkey dinners before the holidays for those in need.
