Prepping for pork & sauerkraut
This year, New Year's Day falls on a Monday.
That should bring more people to the annual Robert Fulton Fire Company Auxiliary's annual pork and sauerkraut dinner.
"It was down last year because it fell on a Sunday," said auxiliary president Pat Eller. That meant members of the Amish community could not attend or volunteer, she said.

Each year, they change the selections.
But the Smith Singers, a chorale of seventh and eighth graders from George A. Smith Middle School, do have some perennial favorites.
"They love the Boogie Woogie Holiday," director and music teacher Karen Gagliardi said last week.

Quarryville was around for 101 years before it became a borough. That came in 1892, when it was officially established, separating it from Eden Township.
Now the borough is preparing for a low-key celebration of its 125th anniversary as a separate municipality.
"We started thinking about this in February," borough manager Ken Work said last week. "We thought it would be a neat thing to hold a little commemoration."
The celebration will be held on Monday evening, December 4.
