Series To Address Opioid Epidemic

Susquehanna Old-Fashioned Field Days Set By Chelsea Peifer

Jack Sodak of Retreat at Lancaster County will speak on “Addiction - A Disease of the Mind and Body” on Sept. 25 at the Alliance Church of Elizabethtown. His talk is the first in a three-part series hosted by Lancaster County Joining Forces on the opioid epidemic in Lancaster County.

Each year the dedicated residents who organize Susquehanna OldFashioned Field Days decide on a different agricultural process or antiquity to feature at the two-day event, and this year’s theme was chosen at the suggestion of numerous individuals. Bells, whistles, and poultry items - new and old, of all shapes and sizes - will be on display for folks to view and learn a bit of history. Organizer Darl Williams has amassed quite a collection of bells and whistles, including several worn by horses See Old-Fashioned Field Days pg 18

The organizers of Susquehanna OldFashioned Field Days, including (from left) Darl Williams, Earl Fuhrman, Mitch Bernhard, Ron Bernhard, Tonya Bernhard, and Kevin Baker, invite the community to enjoy the free two-day festival celebrating agricultural history on Sept. 15 and 16 at Conoy Park in Bainbridge.

During the summers of 1988 to 1992, Millersville University (MU) students, led by Dr. June Evans, trudged down the old railroad bed to the Henry Clay Iron Furnace. The railroad bed has now been transformed into the Lancaster County Northwest River Trail. The students carried shovels, trowels, screens, and notebooks to the site, which was the second of eight anthracite coal fired hot blast iron furnaces in the area. The furnaces had lined the shores of the Susquehanna River between Marietta and Columbia from 1843 to 1931. Hundreds of hikers and bikers now pass by the remains of one of those furnaces every week. During the class excavations at the furnace site, the teams uncovered, classified, marked, and preserved more than 50,000 artifacts. The artifacts are See Exhibit Dedication pg 3

She returned to college after raising her family and received her doctorate in anthropology from The American University, where she later worked as an adjunct professor, teaching courses in human origins and archaeology. In 1990, after moving back to York County, Evans began teaching anthropology and archaeology at Millersville University, including summer field schools. She also initiated the archaeology minor program at the school. She was actively involved in local community planning, as well as political and environmental issues through numerous organizations in York and Lancaster counties. She was actively involved with Rivertownes PA USA, leading numerous walking tours through the Lancaster County iron furnaces. The Henry Clay Furnace was built in 1845 by Peter Haldeman, a prominent Columbia merchant. The property had several struc-

tures on it, including a two-story tavern house, a stable, and other improvements. The tavern house, which was used as the manager’s house for the furnace, was included in MU students’ excavation. Around 1865, John Q. Denney purchased the property. Denney was one of the men involved in the burning of the Columbia/Wrightsville covered bridge during the Civil War. The furnace was later under the management of several owners until Clement Brooke Grubb purchased it in 1875. Grubb was the great-grandson of Peter Grubb, who discovered the Cornwall ore deposit. In 1876, pig iron worth $81,871 was cast. The furnace ceased operation in 1889. The Musselman/Vesta Iron Furnace Center is open during the months of May to October on Sundays from 1 to 3 p.m. and by appointment by contacting Lenny Droege at 717-887-5952 or David Haneman at 717-314-4060.

The Sanborn Insurance map was used locate the buildings in the furnace complex, the manager’s house, and the tenement housing. The field study team drew grids on many of the buildings before starting the survey. The grids were used to mark the location of an object where it was found and note what was near the artifact, which helps archaeologists estimate a date for the item. Many of the artifacts are now displayed in the Dr. June Evans Henry Clay Exhibit, which is located in the Musselman/Vesta Iron Furnace Center. The exhibit is housed in a historic cabinet from the former Billmeyer Jewelry Store that operated in Marietta. The cabinet was restored by local resident Lillian Hill during the past winter. The exhibit showcases dishes, bottles, bowls, a steel toy stove, and many other items that were uncovered at the site. The exhibit also includes photos of the excavation, quadrant maps, and the Sanborn Insurance map that details the buildings of the Henry Clay Furnace complex. The Dr. June Evans Henry Clay Exhibit dedication will take place during the annual Pig Iron Fest which is planned for Sunday, Sept. 30. The dedication will be held at 1 p.m. at the Musselman/Vesta Iron Furnace Center. The public is invited to attend.

Since becoming the director of advancement at Mount Hope Nazarene Retirement Community (MHNRC), 3026 Mount Hope Home Road, Manheim, Kris Wilson has had the chance to hear more and more people mention that it is one of Manheim’s bestkept little secrets. While Wilson agrees with that sentiment, ultimately her desire is to make sure that more people know about the care that is offered to residents at MHNRC. Wilson first learned about MHNRC as she was searching for a retirement home for her mother. Walking inside, she was immediately struck by its cleanliness, the cheerfulness of those working, and the warmth of the overall environment. She has found it to be a wonderful fit for her mother. “I quickly realized how special Mount Hope is. The sheer size and this kind of space just lend itself to a family feel,” relayed Wilson. “The nurses who

interact with my mom have such a special way with her, and really all of the staff do.” MHNRC, a nonprofit ministry of Grace Point Church of the Nazarene, was named a five-star, deficiency-free skilled nursing facility by the Pennsylvania Department of Health this year. “Those are two things that are really hard to get,” Wilson remarked. According to Wilson, more than 85 percent of MHNRC residents are on Medicaid, and in 2017 alone the retirement home gave more than $1,240,600 in charitable care. Being able to fulfill its mission of providing quality, affordable care to the low-income and disabled elderly population is something that Wilson said is made possible only through the support and generosity of the community. Two major fundraising events are coming up this fall, and Wilson emphasized that all of the proceeds raised will go right back into supporting the residents of MHNRC.

With storm clouds threatening overhead on Friday night the Donegal football team unleashed its own thunder on the host Crimson Tide. Behind a strong running games by halfback Jordan Minick, who rushed seven times for 92 yards and two scores, and fullback Korbin Walmer who also ran for 92 yards and added one touchdown, the Indians mounted a 43-0 lead in the first half. With the second half clock running on the mercy rule, Donegal (2-1, 2-0) added another score on the way to a 50-14 victory which placed them at the top of Section Three along with Lancaster Catholic (3-0, 2-0), and Annville-Cleona (2-1, 2-0) both of whom were also winners in their respective showdowns. “The kids played hard,” stated head coach Chad Risberg. “We started a little slow but picked it up after the first drive. Offensively, the starting backfield did their job and were relieved by the end of the second quarter.” Photo by Vaughn Brown Columbia (0-3, 0-2) got off to a Donegal’s Joel Grillo blocks on one of the Indians seven extra points in their 50-14 Section Three rocky start on its first possession of win at Columbia last Friday. the game when the first of several

FIELD HOCKEY Battling the excessive heat that settled in last week the lady Indians took on both Manheim Township (2-2, 2-0) and Manheim Central (1-3, 0-1) and came away with two more wins. They topped the Blue Streaks 8-2 last Tuesday night and finished the lady Barons 6-1 two days later. With a scheduled change on Tuesday from an afternoon start to an evening matchup in order to avoid some of the oppressive temperatures, Donegal (4-0, 1-0) overcame some obstacles on the way to securing its third win of the season. Down two starting players, the Indians had to find a way to adapt on the fly but with the help of a five-goal night from senior Mackenzie Allessie and a little shuffling of players on the field, the team came together for a solid win. “Certainly, Mack is doing what she does best, finishing and coming in clutch,” said head coach Jessica Shellenberger. “We’re still trying to figure out our best line-up and personal. We’ve been working through injuries.” While they may be learning to play together, the Indians are still getting it done. With just under 13 minutes remaining in the first half Donegal led 3-0 on an Allessie hat trick and increased that to 5-0 on a score by Reagan Clark eight minutes later and another goal by Allessie at the 23-minute mark. Township answered with two goals of its own before halftime when Katie Labezius and Ashlyn Campagna both found a way past Donegal goalie Aliza Johns to make it 5-2 heading into the second half of play.

bad snaps sailed over the head of quarterback Matt McCLeary and into the end zone where A.J. McCarty fell on the football for a quick 7-0 lead. A 24-yard hookup from quarterback Dylan Martin to Jarred Collazo later in the quarter put the Indians up 14-0. Then a forced punt from the Donegal defense on the Tide’s next possession sailed out of bounds at the Columbia 39 after only 10-yards and set the stage for a 27-yard touchdown scamper from Minick three plays later to make it 21-0 after only one quarter of play. A 16-yard score from halfback Zion Gibbs in the second quarter, the first of three for Donegal in the frame, put the Indians up 28-0 before another errant snap went over McCleary’s head on the following Columbia possession and out the back of the end zone for a safety. Minick added another rushing touchdown from 13-yards out and Mason Ober punched one in from the 12-yard line before halftime. In all, Donegal racked up 293 total yards of offense, out-gaining the Tide 172-1 on the ground in the first half alone. “Defensively our starters did their job,” added Risberg. “They held Columbia to one rushing yard in the first half. We had a safety, a fumble recovery for a TD, and an interception.” The Tide scored twice in the second half against Donegal backups. Luke McGinnis got in on a three-yard scamper in the third quarter and McCleary punched in a one-yard keeper in the fourth following a nifty 52-yard run by Donegal’s Walmer who broke several tackles on the way to the Indian’s final score of the game.

Donegal’s Mackenzie Allessie battles to get a shot off against Manheim Township goalie Vanessa Donegal’s Madison Leety reaches to take control of the ball in front of Township’s Alyzah Martinez Daniels during the Indians’ 8-2 nonleague win in Neffsville last Tuesday. during the Indians’ 8-2 nonleague win over the host Blue Streaks last Tuesday.

Johns, who had nine saves on 11 Township shots, and the Donegal defense held the Blue Streaks scoreless from that point on while Allessie, Cayla Homsher, and Lily Saunders each scored for Donegal in the second half. Leading Manheim Central by three early in the second half on two Allessie goals and one by Saunders,

the Indians gave up a goal to Alexis Hosler on a penalty stroke at the 6:28 mark, the first of only two shots allowed by the defense on the day, cutting the lead to 3-1. That was the only hiccup for Donegal, though, as Homsher and Saunders both scored on penalty corners followed by Allessie’s third of the game, all over a span of only 1:30.

Even with the wins and the balancing of new players, Shellenberger knows they can only get better. “We’re hoping to have everyone back and healthy soon. Trying to get the pieces together so we can make a run in the post-season!” CROSS COUNTRY Despite sweltering conditions last Tuesday, the Donegal cross country teams still ran their weekly meet at Columbia along with Lancaster Catholic and came away with three victories. Donegal’s girls posted wins over both the Crusaders and Crimson Tide with respective scores of 18-47 and 15-55 while the boys lost 22-33 to Lancaster Catholic but defeated Columbia 15-55. Led by overall first and second place finishers Rachel Fernald (22:43) and Amanda Fry (23:06), the girls posted 11 of the top 15 times with seven of those coming in the top ten. Mary Zukus (24:02) of Lancaster Catholic finished third while her teammates Ellie Bomberger (25:49, 9th) and Maddie Zukus (25:54, 10th) were the only three runners keeping Donegal’s entire Photo by Mark Palczewski team from crossing the line The Indians’ Lily Saunders maneuvers past Manheim Township’s Alyzah Martinez during Donegal’s 8-2 nonleague win in Neffsville last Tuesday. before any other.

minute of play on an assist by Zac Runkle. Donegal held on to the slim advantage through most of the half before Leo Garcia tied things up in the 35th minute for the Wildcats and Matteo Congliaro added the eventual game winner in the second half in the 45th minute. On Thursday, playing down from 1-0 to start the second half against the Spartans, Patrick Summers found the back of the net in the 51st minute to tie the game while Austin Heim came through in the 73rd minute to nail the game winner. Both teams put seven shots on goal while the Indians enjoyed a 9-5 advantage in corners and goalie Gavin Murren turned away six Spartan shots. Playing against South Western on Saturday it was Heim’s goal in the 55th minute that evened things up after a last second score by Casey Slater in the first half put the Mustangs in the lead, but Andrew Baldwin was able to beat Murren a little over five minutes later to give the host team the victory.

Everything else was even for the two teams as they each had six shots on goal and three corner shots apiece while Murren had four saves on the day. TENNIS In what was an edge of the seat match at Garden Spot last Thursday, the Indians were edged by the Spartans 4-3 with a pivotal tiebreaker providing the deciding score. Donegal’s Mary Murphy battled through a 7-5 first set loss to Ashley Risser but evened things up in the second with a 6-4 win. It was Risser, however, that came through in the end with a 10-3 finish that helped the Spartans gain the victory. Emily Ashley defeated Elle Hallquist 6-0, 6-1, Lyla Naqvi lost to Paige Kemper 6-1, 6-3, and Emma Shelly put away Leah Strausser 6-4, 6-4 to round out the singles play. In doubles, Ashley and Naqvi defeated Hallquist and Kemper 9-7 for the lone win while Murphy and Kailey Frownfelter lost to Katie Varley and Risser 8-4 and Hailey Fry and Ellen Zern lost to Lillie Risser and Strausser 8-6.

Rounding out the top ten for Donegal were Hadley Shoaf (24:09, 4th), Ella DeBruin (24:40, 5th), Myra Naqvi (25:02, 6th), Keri Anderson (25:16, 7th), and McKenzie DuBusky (25:32, 8th), followed by Meg Zell (27:08, 11th), Sarah Hinkel (27:55, 12th), Megan Myers (28:39, 13th), and Jordyn Smith (28:44, 14th). For the boys the finishes were a little more spread out as Matthew Wallace (20:48, 4th) and Logan Fry (20:52, 5th) led the Indians who had a total of five in the top ten which included Brandon Hess (21:20, 7th), Sam Rothstein (21:32, 8th) and Hunter Gehman (21:39, 9th). Following were Ethan Steck (25:13, 21st), Hunter Williams (27:22, 24th), and Nathaniel Jenney (31:42, 30th). SOCCER Last week saw Donegal’s soccer teams come away with varying results as the girls defeated Garden Spot 1-0 and the boys lost to both Dallastown and South Western with identical 2-1 scores with a 2-1 win over Garden Spot sandwiched in between. A first half goal by Donegal’s Hannah Dunn on an assist by Ellie Henriques spelled the difference against the Spartans on the road in last Thursday’s narrow victory. Sporting a 7-2 shot advantage, the Indians benefitted from a shut out by goalie Rena Rankin while Elizabeth King was able to turn away six shots in goal for the Spartans. Hosting Dallastown last Tuesday, the Indians jumped out to an early 1-0 lead thanks to Jose De La Cruz who wasted no time by scoring in the first

“Opioid-related overdose deaths constitute a serious public health concern across the United States,” stated Search. The United States federal government declared a national public health emergency in October 2017, with Pennsylvania declaring a statewide disaster emergency in January 2018. “Lancaster County is not alone in this crisis, but it displays a higher rate of drugrelated overdose deaths than the nationwide average,” said Search, noting that more than 160 Lancastrians died from accidental overdose in 2017. “The opioid crisis is not a problem happening ‘somewhere else,’ nor is it limited to our nation’s cities or among certain socioeconomic populations,” Search emphasized.

In the first three months of 2018, Lancaster County’s rate of overdose deaths was down 20 percent from 2017, according to Search. “Early data from April through May suggests that rate of overdose deaths continues to head downward,” said Search. “ While it is too soon to say if this is a definite trend, we can say that this coordinated response to our county’s opioid crisis exemplifies the concern and compassion we all share for the health and wellbeing of our fellow citizens.” Individuals who would like to learn more about hosting a presentation or series of presentations through LCJF may contact Sue Lackmann at 717-5443284 or

LCJF strives to implement a continuum of care with an emphasis on both broad, community-based education and awareness and the promotion of healthy lifestyles, while also connecting people who are experiencing addiction to appropriate treatment and recovery support.

We’ve put a lot of effort into dash plaques and trophies and giving the show cars a proper spotlight,” remarked Snow, who gives all credit to fellow organizer Gary Schatz, whom he calls the “car show hero.” Live musical entertainment will be provided by Justin Angelo

and Tim Rinard. Angelo, who is a new addition to the Pig Iron Fest lineup, plays a blend of folk and blues music on acoustic guitar and is a regular performer at local open mic nights in Marietta. Rinard is returning to Pig Iron Fest and plays a mix of classic ’70s and ’80s tunes along with new country and indie music. Food vendors will offer chicken sandwiches and chicken tenders, hot dogs, hamburgers, barbecue sandwiches, french fries, soft pretzels, and beverages. Children can take a hayride, decorate pumpkins, and enjoy special music, games, and crafts for their age set in the Kids’ Zone. History tours of the furnace ruins will be offered throughout the day, and a dedication ceremony for the Dr. June Evans Henry Clay Exhibit at the Musselman/Vesta Iron Furnace Center will take place at 1 p.m. The exhibit features items that were uncovered at the Henry Clay Furnace site, where Evans led

Millersville University students on archaeological digs from 1988 to 1992. The site was one of eight anthracite coal-fired hot blast iron furnaces in the Marietta and Columbia region between 1843 and 1931. “I love seeing folks tour the furnace site and Vesta building and learn about our history,” commented Snow, noting that attendees often share with him that they appreciate the history element and the family-friendly nature of the event. “I love giving back to the community. Seeing so many people happy and having a great time (is) a Pig Iron Fest miracle.” Pig Iron Fest is sponsored by the Donegal Area Rotary Club and the Lancaster County Department of Parks and Recreation. Proceeds from the event will support the East Donegal/Conoy Area Christian Food Bank, the Marietta Pioneer Fire Company and the Marietta Fire Police, and the maintenance of the historic furnace site and Vesta building.

The sixth Lancaster Printers Fair will be one for the record books as new events - including a world record attempt - have been added to the printing event for people of all ages that will be held in downtown Lancaster on Friday and Saturday, Sept. 14 and 15. New this year, “Printing on Penn Square” will offer a number of activities from 6 to 8:30 p.m. on Sept. 14 at 38 Penn Square, Lancaster. The activities will include a demonstration by nationally known itinerant printer Chris Fritton, custom coaster printing with the Heritage Press Museum, and custom T-shirt printing. Attendees may also grab a special printmakers’ beverage at a nearby restaurant and help to raise funds for the construction of the .918 Club’s Heritage Press Education Center by participating in an auction of prizes donated by local businesses. The Printers Fair will run from 11 a.m. to 4 p.m. on Sept. 15. The 300 block of North Queen Street, Lancaster, will be closed to vehicular traffic for the event. Parking will be available for a flat fee in the North Queen Street parking garage. All nearby merchants will remain open for business. The street will be filled with vendors from across the region, printing demonstrations, food trucks, and

live music. A highlight of the fair will include the attempt at setting a new world record for printing with potatoes, which will take place between noon and 3 p.m. Participants of all ages may design and cut their own potatoes on-site prior to printing. New this year, a beverage garden will feature a libation crafted from a recipe by Benjamin Franklin, who among many other occupations was a pioneering printer in 1700s Philadelphia. A percentage of the sales of the beverages available in the garden will go to finishing construction at the .918 Club’s Heritage Press Education Center on the campus of Thaddeus Stevens College of Technology in Lancaster. “The Printers Fair is the largest of its kind on the East Coast,” said Ken Kulakowsky, president of the nonprofit .918 Club, which organizes the annual event. “The fair is a wonderful way to witness history and the future at the same time. Letterpress and other forms of printing are widely popular, and examples can be seen everywhere in society.” The letterpress event started in 2013 as a nod to Lancaster’s place in printing history and features vendors and suppliers of letterpress equipment, foundry type, cards, posters, broadsides, ephemera, and more. Print-related vendors hailing from as far away as Maryland, Delaware, New Jersey, and New York will be represented at the Printers Fair. Six gallery shows will run in conjunction with the Lancaster Printers Fair. These include Ryan Keates at Foxduck, 11 W. King St.; Valerie Leuth of Tugboat Press at Realm and Reason, 213 W. King

The sixth Lancaster Printers Fair will be held in downtown Lancaster on Sept. 14 and 15 and will feature demonstrations and hands-on activities related to the printing industry.

When violinist David Kim performs at the Calvin and Janet High Fine Art Center at Lancaster Mennonite School, 2176 Lincoln Highway East, Lancaster, on Tuesday, Sept. 18, at 7:30 p.m., the event will benefit another musical presentation - the “Messiah” SingAlong - which has been held each spring and winter in Lancaster and Chester counties for more than 20 years. The “Messiah” Sing-Along is a musical event that includes no rehearsals and features volunteer

singers and musicians. According to conductor Clair Leaman, the event is unique because people can just show up and sing. The piece is treated as a performance, but Leaman noted that sometimes people in the audience sing along too. The Lancaster County Sing-Along has been held at Westminster Presbyterian Church, 2151 Oregon Pike, Lancaster. The Chester County presentation has been held at Upper Octorara Presbyterian Church, 1121 Octorara Trail, Parkesburg. The next Chester County SingAlong will be held on Friday, Dec. 28, and the next Lancaster County Sing-Along will be held on Friday, April 26, 2019. Kim, who was named concertmaster of the Philadelphia Orchestra in 1999, has been playing the violin since age 3. He began studying under Dorothy DeLay at the age of 8, and he holds bachelor’s and master’s degrees from the Juilliard School. He recently appeared as concertmaster of the All-Star Orchestra on the Public Broadcasting System, at the Brahms Festival, and

Runners who take part in the Hands-on House Half Marathon will traverse a scenic portion of the Lancaster County countryside on Sept. 29. The event will also offer 10K and 5K routes and will raise funds for educational programming at the children’s museum. marathon and to the top five males and females for the 5K and 10K courses. According to Connolly, race organizers have set a goal of attracting 800 to 1,000 participants this year. At its peak, more than 1,000 runners took part in the event. Registration opened earlier this year to give more runners a chance to sign up. Runners may register at or by searching for “Hands-on House Half Marathon, 10K & 5K 2018� at Half-marathon runners must register prior to race day, and online registration will end on Thursday, Sept. 27. Those wishing to participate in the 5K or 10K races may register ahead of time or on the day of the event beginning at 6:30 a.m. Packet pickup will be from 4 to 7 p.m. on Friday,

Sept. 28, at Hands-on House and from 6:30 to 7:30 a.m. on the morning of the race. Free longsleeved tech shirts are guaranteed for runners who preregister for the events. While the Hands-on House race courses spotlight the hallmarks of Lancaster County scenery, the event also offers a unique opportunity for children and non-runners to enjoy the museum during the race. “The museum will open at 8 a.m., and runners receive coupons for children,� said Connolly, who explained that children may enjoy the museum for free with a paying adult. The coupons give a spouse, grandparent, or family friend a chance to enjoy the museum with a child or children while one or both parents run the course. See Races pg 23

Julia Connolly, executive director of Hands-on House, has great appreciation for the beauty of the challenging course that Hands-on House Half Marathon runners enjoy. While the half marathon is known for its challenging hills, Connolly delights in the bucolic scenery the run offers. “It’s a beautiful course with farms, trees, and a covered bridge,� she said. “It truly captures Lancaster’s character.� The 15th annual Hands-on House Half Marathon, which also offers 10K and 5K courses, will be held on Saturday, Sept. 29, beginning at 8 a.m. All three runs will begin and end at Hands-on House, 721 Landis Valley Road, Lancaster. The 10K utilizes part of the halfmarathon course, and the 5K winds through a local neighborhood. Strollers are permitted in the 5 and 10K runs, but pets are not allowed for safety reasons. Connolly noted that water stops and comfort stations will be available along the routes and that bagels and apples will be offered to runners at the end of the race. Each run will have its own start, and all runners will be chip-timed. Cash prizes will be awarded to the top three male and female halfmarathon runners, and all halfmarathoners will receive medals. Prizes will also be given to the top three males and females in a number of age groups for the half

Night At Museum Gala Scheduled The Night at the Museum Gala and Live Charity Auction, themed “Hope and Heritage,” will be held on Wednesday, Oct. 10, from 5 to 10 p.m. at AACA Museum, 161 Museum Drive, Hershey. The event will celebrate the 70th anniversary of Tucker and will honor Gale Halderman with the AACA Museum Inc. Automotive Heritage Award. The evening will feature a reception from 5 to 6 p.m. featuring hors d’oeuvres, as well as a VIP reception with Haldeman at that time. Dinner will be at 6:15 p.m., and the award presentation will take place at 7:30 p.m. and will be followed by a live auction conducted by the Katz Family Foundation. Halderman is the designer of the original 1967 Ford Mustang. The Automotive Heritage Award is designed to honor and provide public recognition for an individual who has made an exceptional contribution to the hobby by preserving antique vehicles, exhibiting their vehicles, promoting the hobby, engaging in sustained, noteworthy activities that have positively impacted the hobby, and using his/her position in the hobby for philanthropy and service to others. Halderman began as a designer with Lincoln-Mercury in 1954 and four years later became head of Ford’s Advanced Studio. In addition to leading the team that created the first Mustang, during his eight years as studio chief, Halderman oversaw the development of the Lincoln Mark VII and VIII. For more details and to order tickets, readers may visit www.aaca or contact Jake Dunnigan at 717-566-7100, ext. 116, or Proceeds will benefit Homeland Hospice and the AACA Museum.
