Young players took to the field last week to learn the basics of field hockey.
The annual camp had 35 players from first to eighth grade. Helping coach the camp were 17 members of Solanco High School’s field hockey team.
Dan Neff came to his first Rubicon summer program as a very young wrestler.
Last Thursday, he returned as a guest instructor.
Neff, one of Solanco's most successful wrestlers, spent the day working with younger matmen.
"It's a big transition, teaching kids how to compete at different skill levels," he said. "When you teach, it shows you the mistakes you have been making."
Even before the first walkers begin circling the track in the football stadium, the 14th annual Solanco Relay for Life has reached its financial goal.
An original painting by one of 20th century America's best-known artists will be among the items to be auctioned off during Hospice and Community Care's Labor Day weekend sale.
This year's sale, the 32nd, will be the first held at the Solanco Fairgrounds in Quarryville.
The idea came from a customer.
"A lady came into the store and wondered if we were interested in holding a blood drive," said Jim Hassler. "I said 'heck, yeah, it's needed'."
That led the owners of Ferguson & Hassler Supermarket to reach out to the Central Pennsylvania Blood Bank and schedule the store's first blood drive.
It is fitting, club member Karen Hurd said last week, to have a rock and mineral show in a town named for quarries.
That may not be the reason the Lancaster County Fossil and Mineral Club decided to hold the event in Quarryville later this month, but it seems appropriate, Hurd said.
But, she pointed out, the Southern End has a long history of mining and processing ore.
One of the songs organist Rick Rineer will play on Sunday afternoon, June 12, has a special meaning for Little Britain Presbyterian Church and the instrument.
"The hymn will be 'Holy, Holy, Holy'," Rineer said last week. "That's the hymn that was played when the organ was dedicated in 1931."
And it will be the signature piece for the organ's rededication later this week.
The organ was reinstalled in late April, 10 months after it was removed for a complete overhaul.
When she started teaching, Rebecca Gajecki didn't plan to leave the classroom.
That's not how her career has progressed.
Late last month, she was appointed principal of Quarryville Elementary School. She will begin that job on July 1.
"I never really wanted to become a principal but I had great mentors at Solanco and they guided me as my career progressed," she said last week. "When I started work on my administration certificate, Dr. [Brian] Bliss was my mentor and he got me involved in projects in the various schools."
"The whole point is to get books in children's hands."
That's how organizer Becky McClure describes this month's sale of children's books at the Quarryville Library,
McClure and Barbara Walker, both retired Solanco teachers, are coordinating the sale for the Friends of the Quarryville Library.
"One of the sale's goals is to get kids' books out where they can see them for the summer reading program," said Friends president Carol Biscardi.
Lewis Whiteman didn't have to look for a car to be restored.
It had been in his family for years.
"My uncle bought it new," he said earlier this month.
The 1956 Chevrolet Bel Air convertible sat unused for 22 years before it was sent off for restoration.
The Solanco Fair Association is going to expand its oldest building.
The association's board of directors voted to add on to the Hoffman Building.
The Solanco Relay for Life will hold it's 2016 fundraiser in a new location - the fields behind Solanco High School.
"We are going to do some different things to get more teams involved," said spokesperson Karen Keefer, "and we wanted to get the schools involved."
