Sixteen months ago, Gill Hill Volunteer Fire Company started the process the long process to replace their 34-year-old fire engine. The fire company was awarded a Federal Assistance to Firefighters grant in August 2016 for $397,000. Once awarded, the Gill Hall firefighters wrote a detailed specification and requested proposals from several truck manufacturers.
Following the bid process, Spartan Emergency Response was awarded the contract to build the new vehicle. After a 13-month build process, the 2018 Spartan Metro Star custom fire truck was complete, and Gill Hall VFC took delivery in October 2017.

On Friday, January 26, 2018 the Canon-McMillan and Ringgold High School boys varsity basketball teams will play each other in the inaugural Brian Anselmino Memorial Basketball Game. The game will be held in the Canon-McMillian gymnasium. Tipoff is scheduled for 7:30 p.m.

Brian Anselmino was a standout basketball player at Ringgold high school in the mid-1980s and later became a Canonsburg resident where he coached youth baseball and was a community volunteer. Anselmino died in an automobile accident in 2014.

This year’s game will be the first in what is expected to be an annual matchup between the two school districts that were such a big part of Anselmino’s life. Next year’s game will be held at
Ringgold.

The two schools are dedicating this annual matchup to help raise funds for the Brian Anselmino Memorial Fund (BAMF). A portion of the proceeds from the basketball game will benefit the
BAMF which provides two $5,000 scholarships annually to a Ringgold student and a Canon-McMillan student.

Fans in attendance can purchase t-shirts, golf towels, hats, 50/50 raffle tickets, concessions and more.

For more information about the BAMF, please visit the website www.briananselmino.org.

Michael Neiberg returns to the Peters Township Public Library on Thursday, January 18 at 7:00 p.m. for America in War and Peace. This is the final program in the World War I and America series presented in partnership with VFW Memorial Park Post 764 and the Veterans Breakfast Club. Register to attend this free program at ptlibrary.org or call 724.941.9430 #1.

Neiberg will examine the role of the United States in winning the war and shaping the postwar peace. Military strategy and postwar diplomacy were intimately linked, as President Woodrow Wilson sought a distinct, independent American contribution to victory in order to ensure him a guiding role in the peace conference. Wilson’s views on the postwar peace met with tremendous resistance, both from his European allies and from his fellow Americans. Echoes of that debate still resonate with us today as America again debates its place in the world.

The holidays just got a lot sweeter for area Meals on Wheels recipients! Pleasant Hills Middle School Family Consumer Science Teacher Mrs. McCauley and a few of her students donated their time and talents to bake cookies for LifeSpan’s “Sweet Holiday Wishes” cookie campaign. The middle school baked 10 dozen chocolate chip cookies to help brighten the holidays for senior community members.

Heartfelt thanks to Mrs. McCauley and her bakers!
