With three years' experience, organizers now have a good idea what will happen when they open the doors for Bingo players on Sunday, May 3.
"We expect to have more than 250 people," said Linda Kushlan.
Kushlan is helping stage the annual event to raise money for the Bob Bard Memorial 5K and 10K race in June.
The race is a year newer than the fundraiser.
"The first year we did it, we raised money to help the team that went to Washington," Kushlan said. After about 100 people from the Quarryville area turned out for the 5K Race for Hope in 2011, organizers decided to stage their own race in the Southern End.
Members of Solanco High School's FFA Chapter want to reach out to the Southern End.
They also want to reestablish connections with past chapter members.
"We want to connect more with the community," chapter president Hanna Welk said last Thursday. We want to do more service projects and host more events."
Chapter members had completed one of the service projects earlier last week. They turned out to till and prepare the community garden that serves the Solanco Food Bank.
"We also want to reach out to younger kids to get them interested in FFA," Welk said.
The Solanco School District won't merge its two middle schools.
The plan to double the size of George A. Smith Middle School and close Swift Middle School has been scrapped.
Instead, the district will undertake a series of smaller, much less expensive construction projects. Most of those projects will be paid for as they are completed and will not have to be financed.
The change in direction, hinted at earlier this year, became official when the school board voted to approve planning for the new projects. That vote came during the board's April public meeting.
Volunteers from the Quarryville Fire Company were honored recenty for their service in 2014.

Robert Benson was named the Trainee of the Year.
Now that winter's over, Quarryville Borough has resumed its efforts to collect past-due water bills.
Notices were sent out earlier this month to delinquent customers. Some will have their water shut off if they don't pay their bills by April 20.
