Suzapalooza VI event to benefit cancer patients to be held at Duman Lake Park
     Suzapaloooz VI - Teaming Up for Becky & the Bakers - is set for Saturday, Sept. 13 at Pavilions 6&7 at Duman Lake Park. This year's proceeds will benefit Ashley Baker, a 21-year-old Northern Cambria woman who is currently battling cancer, as well as Rebecca (McCombie) Gephart, who is battling Ovarian and Uterine cancer. Baker is a graduate from West Virginia University and hopes to return to West Virginia for graduate school as soon as possible. Gephart, a single mother, has been off work with no income while recieving her Chemotherapy treatments. She hopes to make a return to the workforce sometime in September. A small portion of the proceeds will also be donated to the Conemaugh Health Foundation for "greatest patient needs" for those being treated at the Conemaugh Cancer Care Center, where Baker is currently being treated.
     This year's event will begin with a 4K Fun Run/Walk, also to be held at Duman Lake Park at 9 a.m. Donation for entry into the 4K Fun Run/Walk is $15 before Sept. 1, with t-shirts provided, and $20 up to the day of the event. T-shirts will be distributed while supplies last. A Kids' Fun Run will also be held following the completion of the adult race. Prizes will be awarded. For more information or to receive an entry form, email Stacy McCombie Datsko at sadatsko@hotmail.com or personal message on Facebook.
     After the race, the fun will continue at noon with the beginning of the basket raffle/auction. We are once again seeking donations for the basket raffle. If you have a donation, please contact Suzie McCombie or Missy Macchioni-Pablic. We can make arrangements to collect any donations.
     Also beginning at noon will be the live musical entertainment, starting with a DJ, who will be followed by entertainment from Barr T Bluegrass, Ghostown Revelry and Never Enough, all of which also performed at last year's event. You will not want to miss these talented musicians who donated their time to this wonderful cause.
     We will also be holding the 2nd Annual Suzapalooza Cornhole tournament, beginning around 2 p.m. Get your team ready to come compete for our Suzapalooza Cornhole Championship.
     The ever-popular Suzapalooza T-shirts will once again be available for a small donation and we will also be continuing the tradition of the dedication lantern ceremony since it was so popular last year.
     Any one interested in making a donation to the event or for more information on the event, please contact Suzie McCombie at smmccombie@hotmail.com, by personal message on Facebook or call (814) 242-8267. Check back for more exciting developments for this year's event. 091314

Centennial History Book second printing available

Barnesboro
                    Centennial History Book
NORTHERN CAMBRIA -- The Barnesboro Centennial History Book, originally published in 1994, has been reprinted. If you missed out on the original run, you're in luck! The second printing is now available. The original printing of 2,000 copies in 1994 sold out in 1996. The Susquehanna Historical Society of Northern Cambria decided last year to use funds they have saved to have a reprint of the book done.
-- A limited number of books have been reprinted and have been divided and donated to the Northern Cambria Public Library and Hope Fire Company of Northern Cambria as a long-term fundraiser for those organizations. 100% of the proceeds from book sales will stay with these two non-profit groups.
-- 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). If you would like to support the library, pick up or order your book from Northern Cambria Public Library, 1030 Philadelphia Avenue, Northern Cambria, PA.
-- Books are beautiful hardbound books with old photos and history of Barnesboro with sections on businesses, churches, people influential to our town and more. Will make a great addition to your bookshelf, or a great gift.
