FROM THE CHRONICLE

For more than 30 years, Solanco students collected coats which were then cleaned and displayed so people can pick out the ones they need.

The 61st annual pageant will be held at 7 p.m. on Saturday, November 28, at Solanco High School, 585 Solanco Rd. Read more...
There were two winners in the recent grocery sweepstakes.
Lisa Zumbuto of Conowingo, Md., got a $1,000 shopping spree at Ferguson & Hassler Supermarket.
And the children's programs at Johns Hopkins Hospital got almost as much.
The sweepstakes is Jamie Paxton's most recent project to benefit the hospital. While still a student at Solanco High School, she helped start Santa's Sleigh, a program that continues to collect toys for children hospitalized over Christmas.
It's time the weather changed.
For the past four years, members of the Southern Lancaster County Chamber of Commerce have had to cope with rain on the night they light a community Christmas tree.
They have had drizzle, showers, and at least one cold downpour.
This year will be different, organizer Pete Rush said last week as he stood under a roof and watched rain soak the tree.
In past years, the weather has probably kept attendance down, Rush said. Last year, about 400 people braved a cold rain to listen to music, drink hot chocolate, and welcome Santa.
"This year, we're going to have either a clear day or snow," he said. "There will be no rain."
