Linnell, Mrs. Robert Clifford, and Miss Bernadette Morin. Judges will have to pick from 106 dolls entered in the contest. Five different categories to be judged are sensible dress, fancy dress, nationality costumes, character costumes and knit and crochet. After the judging, the dolls will be on display at an open house at the Minot Avenue office between 2 and 5 p.m., on Sunday, Nov. 19, and after all, four offices of Androscoggin Banks. They will then be donated the week before Christmas to three agencies who will distribute them to needy children.

(from a Journal photo) The Rev. Scott Planting stands at the pulpit of the Fairbanks Union Church in Farmington with an old boat he is using to dramatize the church’s fund-raising theme: “How Seaworthy is Our Boat?” Planting on Sunday will place an anchor in the boat as a symbol of the stewardship campaign. The church operates the Care and Share Food Closet, which is collecting food for Thanksgiving.
