Goodwill Fire Company's annual street fair in Jacobus is not only one of its biggest fundraisers of the year, but also a Labor Day tradition.

The event takes place, rain or shine, 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. Sept. 6 in this borough divided by the Susquehanna Trail. Visitors will find flea-market items, crafts, antiques, lots of entertainment and good food.

Although vendor space at this popular event fills up fast, there might still be a few left if you want to rent one.
To do so, call 235-1942.

H.O.P.E.'s first Take a Swing at Cancer Golf Classic Tournament was so successful last year that the New Freedom-based nonprofit group is planning to do it again this year.

The event will take place Sept. 17 at the Royal Manchester Golf Links, 5700 Broad St., Mount Wolf. Cost is $80 per person, which includes a round of golf, New York strip dinner and prize.

Proceeds benefit H.O.P.E., a free cancer support network serving cancer patients and their families in York County and Northern Maryland. Since its inception in 1994, the group has assisted hundreds of families dealing with the diagnoses of cancer. But it cannot do this without the support of the community.

To register for the golf outing, call the H.O.P.E. office at 227-2824.

Money is needed to help Shelley pay for uncovered medical bills and modifications to his home so he can live independently.

To donate, make checks payable to the Paul Shelley Benefit Fund and send them to Christa Shelley Craig, 746 Mitchell Road, Airville 17302. The fund is with PNC Bank's Whiteford, Md., branch.
The county's legislative delegation will honor Vietnam vets Oct. 7 at the York Expo Center.
