Here we are at the end of another year, although we didn’t get as much done as we could have, we still got a lot done. It’s been my pleasure to serve you these past two years. It’s time for someone new. We have a new president going in and I hope you will support her and help her in any way you can. If nothing changes, we will be hosting our county council meeting in October and we will need help. You can give me a call at 717-755-8475 or Sharon Scurfield at 717-858-6645. Have a happy and healthy summer.
