H.O.P.E. is compiling recipes for a cookbook to commemorate its 20th anniversary.

The non-profit support network for cancer patients and their families hopes to the book completed by Mother's Day.

The book will be divided into eight sections: appetizers and beverages, soups and salads, vegetables and side dishes, main dishes, breads and rolls, desserts, cookies and candy, and this and that (miscellaneous items).

H.O.P.E. needs help on several aspects of completing the book, including recipe selection, ad sales, formatting, pre-sales and sales. If you've got some expertise to share or a strong interest in helping, call the H.O.P.E. office at 227-2824 or email barb@hopeforcancerfamilies.org.

The new year brings an end to the service of two long-time public servants, one an elected supervisor and the other a municipal secretary/treasurer.

End of service

The new year brings an end to the service of two long-time public servants, one an elected supervisor and the other a municipal secretary/treasurer.

Paul Smith served 36 years on the Windsor Township board of supervisors, having been first elected in 1975.

During his time in office, he served as both chairman and vice chairman of the supervisors. He was involved in the creation of the York Area Regional Police Department and Windsor Area Recreation Commission and the construction of Freysville Park, Workinger Field, the township administration building and the public works building.

Smith also helped develop the Host Municipal Agreement with Modern Landfill that benefits the residents of Windsor Township to this day, served on numerous committees, and held leadership positions with the York County Association of Townships of the Second Class.

Brenda Gohn became Chanceford Township's secretary and treasurer in 1987. During her 26 years, she served as secretary to the township planning commission and later became an appointed voting member. Gohn also worked as the township's zoning permit officer and helped the recreation board by serving as treasurer.

I've had the pleasure of knowing both Smith and Gohn for a long time. They're service to their communities will be missed!
