Two charged following ball bat assault
A man from Delaware has been charged with assaulting another man last month and a woman from Kirkwood has been charged with conspiring in the assault, Quarryville Borough Police said last week.
Members of the Livingway Christian Fellowship have found a new home.
They hope it's permanent.
The congregation held its inaugural Sunday service on July 6 in the former Fellowship of the Faith Church at the corner of Maple Shade Rd. and Liberty Ln., Kirkwood.
Now its members are inviting others to join them.
"We welcome 5," said the pastor, David Cornette. "We're big on fellowship."
The look of France's capital city will be coming to Kirkwood, at least for a few hours, early next month.
Spring in Paris is the theme for the New Hope Community Life Ministry's eighth annual fashion show on Saturday, April 12.
About a dozen models will show clothing for children and adults.
The models will be able to buy the items they wear; any of those items that are available after the show may be purchased at New Hope Community Closet.
Race for Good
About 100 runners turned out for the second annual Run a Good Race in Kirkwood on Saturday, October 12. “The weather kept a number of people away,” organizer Lori Kelley said. “We would have liked to see more people.” The race raised money for the Quarryville and Oxford libraries.
Applying lessons learned from their inaugural run, organizers hope to attract more runners to Union Presbyterian Church's second annual Run A Good Race.
They have hired professional timers because they were told that would attract more runners, organizer Lori Kelley said. "We had 152 people last year," she said. "We would like to see 300 this year."
The race began as a way to draw younger people to the church. "This is a family event. We will have music, refreshments, and other activities," Kelley said."We started it as a way to get people here and they really enjoyed it."
