Cambria Care Center award volunteer fire companies
EBENSBURG — Two local fire companies were awarded $2,000 during the first-ever Cambria Care Center Golf Classic held earlier this month at the Ebensburg Country Club.
     Members of the Nanty Glo Volunteer Fire Company were the winning team of a special Firefighter Foursome Flight and received $1,500 for their efforts. In addition, the Conemaugh Volunteer Fire Company won the Best of Show Basket and took home $500 to their company from the event which was organized to raise funds for the Fire School of the Volunteer Firemen’s Association of Cambria County & Vicinity.
     “It was a very good event. The turnout was good, the weather was fantastic, and Cambria Care is very happy to have raised a nice amount for the fire school,” said Cate Planisky, organizer of the event. In addition to organizing and sponsoring the tournament that benefitted the fire school, Cambria Care Center also donated the cash awards for the two special fire company events.
     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.
     Planisky said that Cambria Care Center and the Firemen’s Association plan to meet soon to discuss plans for next year CCC Golf Classic.

                    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.
