DECEMBER 9, 2009 “The Marvel of This Night” turned out to be more than just a title for the Coshocton Community Choir’s Sunday night program. Under the direction of con- ductor Charles R. Snyder, 100 blue velvet clad singers were joined by the Coshocton Children’s Choir, Co- shocton Youth Chorale, Roscoe Brass and the Asbury Handbell Choir from Grace United Methodist Church. “Each one of these concerts is like a different story, and we see the story each time through a different pair of glasses. I’m always amazed at the number of people in a small community that are involved in this event.” WILLIAM ALBERT, INC.

COSHOCTON - For more than 40 years, the Elks Hoop Shoot has been an annual event in Coshocton. This year’s competition was held on Sunday, Nov. 24 at Co- shocton High School. Paul Bowman said he competed in the event when he was a kid and hopes that more kids will try the compe- tition. “There used to be 70-80 kids competing – the last few years, we’ve had 10-12. A few years ago, the national champion was from Coshocton.” Bowman said he understands kids are involved in many activities. “This is free and teaches responsibility. And it’s something kids can do at home or with a group of friends. Hopefully, some of the kids here today will do well at the regionals and will keep advancing.” Bowman said he wants to thank the people who volunteer with the hoop shoot every year. “The Elks are always giving back to this community. Some of these guys are the same ones who have been volunteering for 30 years.” Taylor McCormick competed for the first time this year. She entered because she thought it would be fun. McCormick said she shoots hoops at home and at school and likes it. She made five baskets and said she was nervous when she was shooting. McCormick will be advancing to regionals in January and thinks that it’s awesome. William L. Knapp had worked for the railroad for 46 years and would soon be retiring.
