Volunteer fire companies to be awarded $2,000 in prizes
EBENSBURG -- Two facets of the first-ever Cambria Care Center Golf Classic scheduled for Friday, Sept. 5, will allow members of local volunteer fire companies to enjoy a little fun and games as they vie for cash prizes.
Cambria Care Center will donate $1500 to the winning team of a special Firefighter Foursome Flight during its tournament being held at the Ebensburg Country Club along Manor Drive in Cambria Township. In addition, they will award $500 to the company donating the Best of Show Basket for the event.
“We know it can be a struggle for local volunteers to raise funds for their company,” said Cate Planisky, CCC’s golf tournament organizer. “Here’s a chance for them to have a relaxing day among friends and go home with money in the bank for their company.”
The Firefighter Foursome must be made up strictly of members of the fire company and will compete only among other firefighting foursomes. The Best of Show Basket should represent the company and the communities they serve and will be judged by the dinner guests that evening.
The day-long event is open to all local golf enthusiasts, not just firefighters, and will begin with a pre-game luncheon immediately followed by a shotgun start, four-person scramble tournament. An “All Fore Friday” mixer begins at 5:30 that evening and the awards dinner will follow. Non-golfing community members are invited to attend the mixer and dinner-only event. Skill prizes will also be awarded during dinner and the “Golf Widow(er) Basket Raffle” drawing will be held.
Registration forms and flyers outlining the Best of Show Basket contest have been sent to the local fire companies and municipalities. Registration forms for golfing, dinner reservations, and sponsorship opportunities can also be requested by contacting Planisky at 814/471-2111 at Cambria Care Center.
The tournament has been organized to benefit the Fire School Program of the Volunteer Fireman’s Association of Cambria County & Vicinity. The school, based in Patton, holds classes, seminars, and hands-on training for volunteer firefighters each spring. This past spring, nearly 800 firefighters from across the state participated in the classes. 090514
Ole ’97 Johnny Cash Tribute Band rolls into Susquehanna Township for second concert
SUSQUEHANNA TOWNSHIP, CAMBRIA COUNTY -- If you hear a train a ‘comin, it’s rollin round the bend to the Allport Park in Susquehanna Township bringing the Ole ’97 Johnny Cash/June Carter Tribute Band back by popular demand. The band will return for a free concert on Sunday, July 27 by from 2-5 p.m. Guests can enjoy this regional favorite as they belt out some of the great tunes by the “Man in Black” as well as some popular favorites by Kid Rock, Janis Joplin and they even have their very own recordings; one is titled “Fruitcake” that can have the audience in stitches!
This is the second concert for the township this year. They are happy to re-offer the free beer sampling tent sponsored by Inco Beverage. “This is not what people are thinking,” says Supervisor Francine Filkins, “It’s just that, a sampling of some different products that are new on the market. Those 21 and over can try a taste of some different brews that they normally don’t have an opportunity to or normally wouldn’t buy an entire bottle of. It is a class act.” There is a playground area for the kids and people are encouraged to bring lawn chairs, canopies, blankets, games and picnic baskets. The township will sell hot foods and concessions.
Although the venue is free, the Township is thankful to those who are helping to sponsor the concerts. Jeff Lantzy Insurance and Al’s Tire and Auto have come through as sponsors. “We are trying so hard to welcome everyone and bring events to our region so people don’t have to drive. We thank those who are standing behind us.” If you would like to be a sponsor, please contact the office so signage can be made.
