Backyard news, 10.22.08

* Notes from Tuesday evening’s meeting of the Lower Paxton Twp. Board of Supervisors:

– Larry Robenolt, co-owner of First Impressions boutique, gifts and day spa, formally petitioned the township for improvements to Raspberry Lane, which is the alley that runs behind shops and homes on the south side of Linglestown Road. Robenolt and other merchants hope the alley will provide improved access to stores during the upcoming village improvement project. To learn more about the project, CLICK HERE for archives.

– The supervisors agreed to lend $421,435 to Paxtonia Fire Company 34 for enlarging and refurbishing its headquaraters.

– The supervisors approved a plan submitted by Community General Osteopathic Hospital for an oncology center and a maintenance building.

* Here’s a news item that you won’t read anywhere else. The First National Bank of Marysville, which recently opened a branch in Linglestown on N. Mountain Road, has applied to merge with Halifax National Bank. The consolidated bank’s new name is slated to be Riverview National Bank. By the way, has anyone opened an account at FNB of Marysville?

* In sports, CD Rams field hockey team topped Mechanicsburg 4–0 Tuesday in the first round of the district playoffs. Next up is Warwick at 11 am Saturday at Hersheypark Stadium. Three cheers for the Lady Rams!

* Just for kicks, I joined AARP after I turned 50 in July. I might attend a meeting of the Lower Paxton AARP Chapter tomorrow, Thursday, Oct. 23. Check back for a report on this B² adventure. Hey, you only go around once in this life.

* Project No Drive went bust today. I chauffeured a friend who was in need of a ride and put 47 miles on my trusty 1998 Saturn SW1, causing this week’s miles driven to jump to 62.5 miles. And, early this evening I hoofed it into the village to meet with a merchant.

* Linglestown Life is sponsoring a fun event for kids of all ages, and that includes AARP members like me.
