Members of the Auburn Police Benefit Association are planning a second Police Ball this year, this one Friday night, November 3 at the Rollodrome.

According to patroller Daniel Blanchard, who along with APBA president Calvin Hunter is planning the event, the last ball held in April was such a success that it was decided to hold another one this year.

About 900 people attended the last when country and western recording star Dick Curless was the star attraction. Blanchard said Curless, who lists his hometown as Bangor, will be in attendance again. The ball will take place between 8 p.m. and 1 a.m.

Joy Longfellow, 12, from Farmingdale, blew away the competition with her apple pies. Over the past few weeks, she has created three blue ribbons at Hallowell Days, the annual Windsor Fair and, most recently, the Litchfield Fair.

At the Litchfield Fair, she beat 25 other cooks for the title. The youngster also bakes cookies and cakes and is a superb cook, according to his proud grandfather, Alden Longfellow, also from Farmingdale. But she really loves baking pies, and many of them sport a showy cinnamon and sugar crust.

She is the daughter of Walter and Pam Longfellow of Farmingdale.

The other winners of the Litchfield Fair Apple Pie Contest were second place Linda Mueller from Gardiner and third place Lois Legendre from Richmond. The three winners will be invited to make their pies for the annual Maine Farm Show in January at the Augusta Civic Center.
