Business in brief

Funeral home offering 2013 calendars

HARPERS FERRY – Officials at the Eackles-Spencer & Norton Funeral Home are working to get out word that their free 2013 desk calendars are available.

The calendars are a long-standing tradition for the business. Normally, the funeral home mails out calendars to clients but officials there have created a Plan B after the entire Eackles-Spencer & Norton address book was deleted in a computer glitch.

Anyone interested may stop by the funeral home just off U.S. 340 at 256 Halltown Road in Harpers Ferry to pick a calendar. Another option is to call the funeral home at 304-724-6500 and leave the mailing address where you’d like the calendar shipped.
