The books are $40.00 each if picked up and $40.00 each plus $6.00 shipping and handling if ordered by mail.
You may choose which non-profit you wish to support. If you wish to support the fire company, order from Hope Fire Company, PO Box 1217, Northern Cambria, PA 15714 or pick up your copy at Charlson's Furniture (on behalf of the Fire Company).
