Motor Menders' last cruise night of the 2012 season at The Markets at Shrewsbury will be Oct. 26.

This is a last chance to view all the hot rod and custom cars owned by local folks before winter sets in. Of course, you can shop and eat at The Markets' many stands while you're there, as well as hang out and listen to some good-time oldies music.

Dash plaques and trophies are awarded to participants.

The Markets is at 12025 Susquehanna Trail in Shrewsbury Township.

Rain date is Nov. 2.

Businesses that serve Dallastown and surrounding communities should check out an advertising opportunity offered by the Dallastown Beautification Committee.

Registration is underway for a street banner project designed to improve the appearance of Main Street. The hope is that the committee can garner enough interest from area businesses to hang banners the entire length of Main Street.

If you're interested in sponsoring a banner, go to dallastownboro.org and click on the banner with its American flag.

The York County Heritage Trust's longest-running special event is its oyster festival -- and for good reason.

The event, set for 11 a.m. to 4 p.m. Oct. 21, offers stewed, nude and fried oysters along with apple fritters, sandwiches and baked goods. Last year's crowd chowed down more than 10,000 oysters!

The festival is held at the Agricultural and Industrial Museum.

For details, visit yorkheritage.org.

Recycle your old electronic equipment 9 a.m. to 1 p.m. Oct. 20 at the York County Solid Waste Authority's Yard Waste Transfer Facility, Flour Mill Road, Manchester Township.
