Offering scholarship

The Summit Hill Lions Club is offering a $250 award to a graduating senior from Marian Catholic and Panther Valley High School for community service.

For more information on this award, contact the guidance counselor at your respective high school.

The deadline for applicants is March 31.

Annual campaign

The Diligence Fire Company No. 1, Summit Hill, has announced its annual fund drive for 2010. The drive is the company's major source of income and assists the company in capital expenses, including truck loan payments, equipment and operational expenses.

The firemen are hoping for a substantial increase in participation in the fund drive, since only 47 percent of the borough residents gave a year ago.

Included in the fund drive mailing is a donor survey form. The firemen are asking residents to complete the form to allow them to have more information about households in the event they are summoned. Information about elderly persons, handicapped individuals, pets, etc., helps the firemen have a better understanding of what they can expect to find upon response.

Residents can mail their donation and survey form to the fire company or they can be dropped off at the borough hall, John's Auto or Breslin's Hilltop News.

Seeking recipes

The Summit Hill Fire Department is seeking recipes for its cookbook. If interested, drop recipes at the borough hall, St. Joseph Church, the Presbyterian Church, Hiles Brothers or Breslin's. The recipes can also be mailed to: S.H. Fire Cookbook, P.O. Box 114, Summit Hill, PA 18250, or e-mailed to The deadline is March 31.
