Food bank will benefit from car cruise
Three members of the Lancaster County Cruisers brought their cars to a photo shoot at Quarryville's Memorial Park on Wednesday morning, June 20.
While he had the youngest car there, Wayne Murray has the longest history with his ride.
"My father bought it new in 1963," he said of the Chevelle. "I was taught to drive in this car and passed my test in it. My dad gave it to me in 1987."
Solid Rock to stage 5k for the kids
In May, Encounter Church members got a glimpse of Solid Rock's programs and the ministry's goals.
That led member Mary Mendenhall to propose a fundraiser she had been considering.
"I had it in my heart to do a 5K, but I didn't know what for," she said last week. The program at Encounter Church led the 2012 Solanco High School graduate to propose the run as a fundraiser for Solid Rock.
Churches form new partnership
Wesley Church is not taking over Colerain Baptist Church.
Nor are the two congregations merging.
Rather, members of both churches are calling their new relationship a partnership.
An open house later this week will give community members a chance to tour Quarryville Fire Company's expanded station.
"We want to show the community what's been done," said fire company president James Herr.
The open house is the first the volunteers have held since they housed their ladder truck in 2003, he said.

When Phil and Kristen Rutt left Quarryville to become the new owners of the Buffalo, Wyoming, Triple Three Outfitters, six volunteer firemen began plans to visit the Rutts to harvest a Wyoming wild turkey, introduced into the state in 1935. “We started discussing the possibility of this trip more than a year and a half ago,” said Scott Kreider.
