They jcouldn't stand to see those two pieces of history deteriorate into i • an unsightly mess or even worse, ^ into a pile of rubble.

The Aliens are committed. Only a few months prior to their purchase on the west side of the street, they also nurchnsed a vacant building on the east side of the street and have turned it into one of the more unique businesses around - with everything from children's clothing to antiques to pretty decorating items - called Village Boutique. But they wouldn't want to be thought of as heroes. They are just glad to see Aurelia's Main Street continue to grow rather than fade away with the Aurelia Please turn to page 2 Holiday Celebration stop in with your family and join the fun at the Holiday Celebration to be held Sunday, November 14 from noon-4 p.m. at UENI HAL Trust and Savihgs Bahk, Cherokee.
