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.

Inaugural tournament to benefit Cambria County & Vicinity Fire School program
EBENSBURG -- An inaugural golf tournament set for late summer will help raise funds for the Cambria County Fire School, a program that trains hundreds of firefighters across Pennsylvania.
On Friday, September 5, Cambria Care Center (CCC) of Ebensburg will host it’s first-ever golf tournament to benefit the Volunteer Fireman’s Association of Cambria County and Vicinity and support its annual firefighter training.
“We are only one of a few county associations that still run a county fire school program,” said Paul Kundrod, treasurer of the association. “We run over 50 classes on the three weekends of the Cambria County Fire School held each spring. These classes are open to any firefighter statewide, and the response by firefighters has been fantastic. This past year we had 775 registrants taking a variety of classes at our school site in Patton.”
The CCC Golf Classic will be a four-person scramble format held at the Ebensburg Country Club at 408 Manor Drive just across from the Care Center. The day-long event will feature a luncheon, an All Fore Friday after-business mixer, and awards dinner complete with a Golf Widow(er) Basket Raffle that will give the golfers a chance to win a prize for a the loved one they may have left behind for the day. Throughout the day, golfers will be given the opportunity to win skill contests and other games with all proceeds benefitting the Association that is made up of 57 fire departments from a multi-county region.
“This is such a wide-reaching and beneficial cause, and we are more than happy to give back to our community in this manner. What better way to help the communities we serve than to help train the volunteers firefighters who serve to protect them,” said Roger Swick, the administrator of Cambria Care Center.
More information about the tournament can be requested by calling CCC at 814-471-2111 and can also be found on Cambria Care Center’s Facebook page and the websites of the Volunteer Fireman’s Association of Cambria County and Vicinity’s and several of the individual fire departments. 090514
