who is on firstLast Saturday, we asked, “And what’s up with the Susquehanna Valley Chamber of Commerce? This signature line was on an email received yesterday: ‘Beverly J Shank, Executive Director.’ Yet this is what’s listed at its Website: ‘Executive Director – Kathleen Hohenadel.’” That’s yet unchanged. Hello, is anyone there?

community announcementsFair notice – this is at the Borough Website. Let’s “clean up,” Columbia.

missingMissing in action: the June minutes from the Community Development committee. Also missing at Monday night’s council meeting was Rebecca Denlinger. In September, 2016, Columbia’s council approved an agreement to contract as an independent contractor, Rebecca Denlinger, principal of Rising Tide Collaborative, LLC, to spearhead a program to provide a ‘scope of services to be presented by the Independent Contractor.’ Those services are apt to include the fostering of coordination, collaboration, communication and consistency among the varied interests and programs that have been identified previously as master plans, strategic plans and other grant-funded idea documents. Denlinger will be compensated an hourly rate for 30 hours a week at $45 an hour or $5,200 monthly.”

Easily learned methods of recording and preserving artifacts will be discussed in detail. Artifacts recovered from local sites are displayed and included in a hands on segment. Please join us and discover why York and Lancaster Counties are such significant archaeological areas.
