PARTHEMORE FUNERAL HOME
Celebrates 50th Anniversary Parthemore Funeral Home & Cremation Services, Inc. is celebrating their 50th anniversary this year. The independent, family-owned funeral home is located in New Cumberland and serves families in the surrounding communities.
A Family Tradition of Caring The funeral home founders, Gil and Sondra Parthemore, have fond memories of growing up in small town New Cumberland. Gilâ€™s introduction to funeral service began at age 15 when he started working at the cemetery cutting grass and digging graves. The couple opened their funeral home in 1969. During the early years, Gil and Sondra were the sole employees and worked together to provide services, all the while UDLVLQJWKUHH\RXQJVRQV7KHÂżUVWĂ€RRU of the home was dedicated to funeral VHUYLFHVZKLOHWKHVHFRQGDQGWKLUGĂ€RRUV were reserved for family quarters.
Three Generations The Parthemoreâ€™s oldest son, Gib, was nine-years-old when they opened for business. After attending college and graduating from mortuary school, Gib and Bruce joined the staff of the funeral home in 1984. Later in 1989, Steve joined his brothers and became a funeral director with the home. Âł,QWKHEHJLQQLQJZKHQWKHER\VÂżUVW began working at the funeral home, people would call and always wanted to speak to the â€˜old man,â€™ recalls Sondra. â€œNow they ask for one of the boys.

Community & Recognition Over the years, the funeral directors and staff have devoted time to coaching little league, playing in the town band and serving on community boards. Everyone has a cause thatâ€™s close to their KHDUWV6LQFH*LEKDVEHHQLQYROYHG with the West Shore School District by serving as a dedicated member of the PTO, the school board and the West Shore Foundation Board.

Some families prefer more traditional services, while others opt for more personalized, contemporary options. Whether choosing a cemetery burial, cremation or green burial, the funeral home is able to plan a service that honors the familyâ€™s loved one. Even though commemorating the life of a loved one is a very intimate event, Parthemore Funeral Home is able to blend in the latest technology to help tell the story of the personâ€™s life with family and friends. Social media and the funeral homeâ€™s website play a big part in sharing memories. Parthemore also offers families the ability to webcast services, so that those who are not able to attend can do so remotely. What hasnâ€™t changed in the past 50 years, is Parthemoreâ€™s commitment to being a part of the fabric of the community that they serve by providing a Family Tradition of Caring.

EMERGENCY MANAGEMENT TASK FORCE SEVERE WEATHER SAFETY TIPS
HELPING SAVE LIVES ONE TIP AT A TIME
Fact: Hundreds of people die each year in the United States due to heat waves, hurricanes, lightning, flash floods, powerful thunderstorm winds, and winter storms or winter cold. Additionally, thousands of people are injured by these weather events each year. Fact: If you are aware of what weather event is about to impact your area, you are more likely to survive such an event. To stay on top of the weather, utilize NOAA Weather Radio All Hazards receiver units that can be purchased at most electronic stores. Make sure the model you purchase has a battery-backup. The programmable types allow you to selectively screen out those county warnings you are not interested in. Most homes have a smoke detector; shouldn’t your home also have a weather radio? You should also obtain the latest weather information from commercial TV/ radio, cable TV, the internet/web and newspapers.
LIGHTNING SAFETY TIPS: 1. Postpone outdoor activities if thunderstorms are imminent. Lightning can travel 5-10 miles away from the thunderstorm and strike the ground with blue sky overhead. The storm doesn’t have to be overhead in order for you to be struck. 2. Move to a sturdy shelter or vehicle. Do not take shelter in a small shed, under

DO YOU KNOW HOW TRAFFIC SIGNALS AND PEDESTRIAN CROSSING SIGNALS WORK?
All traffic signals have different phasing plans for the time of day. The controller, which is placed in a cabinet at an intersection and does exactly what the name implies, has a morning, afternoon and evening phase because traffic demand varies at different times of the day. The signals have pre-set timings that repeat throughout the day and always include time for pedestrians to cross the roadway. These preset timings should be studied periodically to ensure that they are accurate, in case minor adjustments can be made to make the intersections operate more efficiently. The borough will be studying the Market Street corridor in 2019 to increase efficiency. Pedestrian or “Push Button” signals help get the pedestrian across the street safely. There are two phases in which pedestrian signals can operate: Concurrent Pedestrian Phase and Exclusive Pedestrian Phase. The Concurrent Pedestrian Phase is the method of providing the walking time at the same time as the green light in the same direction. Vehicles are required to yield to pedestrians within the crosswalk if they are turning. This phasing will help to reduce congestion and decrease travel times, because traffic can continue simultaneously, yielding to pedestrians. The Exclusive Pedestrian Phase provides a separate phase of the traffic signal where all vehicle lights turn to red, and walking time allows pedestrians to cross the street without any vehicle movement in any direction. This phase requires that the pedestrian push a button and wait to cross until the next phase of the signals. Although this phasing requires the pedestrian to wait longer to cross the road and decreases the level of service of the intersection, it is safer for pedestrians. Nearly all pedestrian signals in the borough are the Exclusive Pedestrian Type.
Emergency Management isolated trees, or in a convertible-top vehicle. Stay away from tall objects such as trees or towers or poles. 3. If in your vehicle when lightning strikes – don’t touch a metal surface. You are safer in a vehicle than being outdoors. 4. Remember that utility lines or pipes can carry the electrical current underground or through a building. Avoid electrical appliances, and use telephones or computers only in an emergency. 5. If you feel your hair standing on end – get down into a baseball catcher’s position and plug your ears with your fingertips so if lightning does hit it will not blow your ear drums out. Do not lie flat. 6. 30/30 rule – if the time between lighting and thunder is 30 seconds or less, go to a safe shelter. Stay there until 30 minutes after the last rumble of thunder.
FLASH FLOOD/FLOOD SAFETY TIPS: 1. Nearly half of all fatalities in a flash flood involve a person driving a vehicle. Do not drive into a flooded area – Turn Around, Don’t Drown! It takes only 2 feet of water to float away most cars. 2. It takes only 6 inches of fast-moving water to sweep a person off their feet – don’t walk through a flooded area. 3. If you are camping in a river valley, move to higher ground if thunderstorms with heavy rains are in the area. Do not attempt to drive away. 4. Don’t operate electrical tools in flooded areas. 5. Most flash flood deaths occur in the middle of the night when it is more difficult to see rising water levels.
SEVERE THUNDERSTORM STRAIGHT-LINE WINDS: 1. Don’t underestimate the power of
strong thunderstorm winds known as straight-line winds – they can reach speeds of 100 to 150 mph. Hurricaneforce winds start at 74 mph. Pennsylvania does experience these kinds of winds. 2. If a severe thunderstorm warning contains hurricane-force wind speeds seek shelter immediately (as you would for a tornado situation). 3. Stay away from windows and go to the basement or interior room/hallway. Do not use electrical appliances. 4. Be aware that tall trees near a building can be uprooted by straight-line winds – that tree can come crashing through the roof of a home and crush a person. 5. Powerful straight-line winds can overturn a vehicle or even make a person air-borne when they get up over 100 mph. 6. One type of a straight-line wind event is a downburst, which is a small area of rapidly descending rain-cooled air and rain beneath a thunderstorm. A downburst can cause damage equivalent to a strong tornado.

Although we are a small group we help, when asked, to the best of our ability. As we close out our 2018-2019 year of service, we would like to look back to a few of the projects we accomplished. We kept our assigned area of Trindle Road clean, we collected hundreds of pounds of food for food banks, purchased a new flag pole for Fiala Field, and pavers for the new entrance to Frederickson Library. These are in addition to our annual contributions to local charities. Our next fundraiser is our annual Christmas tree sales.

Ticket/donation is $38; send check payable to PCGC with SASE to Betty Pisano, 15 Wetherburn Road, Enola, PA 17025, by November 22nd. Contact Bepisano@aol.com /(717)-732-4631. December 2, 2019, the PCGC will host a Holiday Market Benefit at the Radisson Hotel Harrisburg, 1150 Camp Hill Bypass, Camp Hill, PA 17011. The event is open to the public from 9AM to Noon, and will include multiple vendors, greens and garden items, bakery goods, unique gifts, and raffles.
The Club’s only goal is to try to preserve /improve Camp Hill’s water, air, land, flora and fauna for our children & grandchildren. We are always looking for new members who share our interests in the environment and to energize our organization. Membership dues are $10 for students and $20 for adults with a maximum of $50 per family. Applications for membership can be picked up in the Recreation Office, calling 737-4548, emailing firstname.lastname@example.org or at a CHEC meeting. Our next business/breakfast meeting is scheduled for Saturday, October 12th, 7:30 am at the West Shore Plaza Restaurant. Come join us! One of our main goals continues to be keeping Camp Hill’s streets, neighborhoods and streams free of trash and litter. We have several events scheduled over the next three months. WHY DON’T YOU JOIN US. We will collect litter along Market Street in October as part of PennDOT’s Adopt-A-Highway program and the Borough parade clean up. We will also collect litter in two sections of town – in August and October. It is not too late to help with the ongoing Conodoguinet Creek Cleanup. We still have events scheduled for August 17 and September 21. Please consider joining us for one or both of these efforts. Just imagine the feeling when you see the trailer full of tires, lawn chairs, trashed bicycles and baby buggies, bottles, rusty cans, batteries, transformers, and all sorts of other trash at the end of our creek cleanup. Another of our goals is to promote recycling. As you read this article, we will have collected several thousand cans and bottles at the Little League fields this summer and sent them to be recycled. Please visit the Borough website for more information on the Environmental Club. www.camphillborough.com.

A Message From the Director... Dear Friends I hope everyone is having a great summer and has had a chance to catch one or more of the community events, programs or camps we offered this summer. It has been great seeing so many using the pool, gaga pits, tennis courts, turf and track over the summer months. If you still don’t have an access card for the stadium, be sure to read the information in the Recreation Section about how to receive one. The response to the Box Lunch Review this summer has been wonderful. Thanks to Highmark, Mid Penn Bank, Service 1st Restoration, HRG and Conte Wealth Advisors for their sponsorships to this program. I would also like to thank all the camp counselors, pool staff, snack shack staff and instructors for a great job this summer. The participants at all the camps and programs as well as everyone visiting the pool enjoyed themselves thanks to their hard work. There were hundreds of children who enjoyed Siebert Park Day Camp, Pre-school Summer Adventures, Boys and Girls Basketball Camps, Soccer Camps, Theatre Camps, Field Hockey Camp, Science Camps, Tennis Lessons, Wrestling Camp and Scuba Program.
We have some great programs and events coming up this fall. Zumba, Dance, Photography, Drone, Art Classes, and Basketball Clinics, so be sure to check out the dates and times if you are interested. Details about our special events including the Halloween Parade and Toys for Tots Parade, are in this newsletter. Please remember that Camp Hill Recreation programs require preregistration. All registrations must be completed online. If you need assistance please call the Recreation Office. Contact us if you have any questions or concerns about existing programs or if you have suggestions for new programs. You can reach us at 717-737-4548 or by email firstname.lastname@example.org. Also remember to look up us on facebook and like our page to find out the latest news and reminders. Our page is Camp Hill Parks And Recreation.

HALLOWEEN PARADE AND ACTIVITIES TUESDAY, OCTOBER 22ND AT 6 PM
TRICK OR TREAT IS ON OCTOBER 31ST FROM 6-8 PM
The Halloween parade is sponsored by Camp Hill Recreation Department. To make this as much fun as years past, I could use some community help. If you are interested, please call or email the recreation office. There will be activities and refreshments in Prosser Hall for all the children to enjoy after the parade and the awards have been handed out. Please join the community of Camp Hill this Halloween and plan to participate in the parade and the other activities with your family. Further information will be available on our site soon.

TOYS FOR TOTS Camp Hill Borough and Centric Bank are teaming up for the Toys for Tots Children’s Benefit Parade. The Quaker City String Band – Mummers is returning this year. The purpose of this parade is to gather toys for children. We would like anyone who would like to contribute a toy to bring it to the parade or bring your toy to area businesses ahead of time. This
event will take place on December 7, 2019. At 4 pm a parade will start at 24th and Market Street and heading east to North 21st Street and then turning onto Walnut Street and ending at the Borough Hall. Following the parade we are planning on having our Annual Holiday Tree Lighting and Caroling. The High School Cheer Ensemble will perform for us, there will be caroling and of course, we will have a special guest coming for all the children. If you are interested in having a group in the parade or would like to volunteer please call Audrey Logar, Recreation Director at 717-737-4548 or email email@example.com.

CAMP HILL SCHOOL DISTRICT Educational Excellence
A MESSAGE FROM SUPERINTENDENT PATRICIA S. CRAIG
Dear Community Members,
Summer can be one of the busiest times of the year in a school district, and this is especially true for the current summer. Our work has been focused on finalizing the 2019-20 District budget, inter viewing for professional staff positions, holding professional learning sessions and meetings to analyze curriculum and school scheduling, hosting athletic and academic camps for students, holding administrative planning sessions on a variety of topics to prepare for the new school year and more! We currently have a few summer renovation projects in full swing at the Middle School/High School including: • HVAC rooftop unit replacement • Exterior door and window replacement (pictured below) • Replacing partitions with walls between three classrooms in the World Language wing (pictured below) • Intercom system replacement
Each of the items above was identified as high priority following the facilities study conducted by EI Associates during the fall of 2017.
The District has also been working closely with K&W Engineers to finalize the Land Development Plan for the Hoover Elementar y project, which was approved by Camp Hill Borough Council on July 11, and is slated to go out for bid at the end of August. Due to the on-going safety concerns regarding pedestrian, bicycle and vehicular traffic all converging at the 24th Street entrance of the Hoover Elementar y building, the arrival and dismissal loop for vehicular traffic will be moved away from pedestrians and cyclists and be relocated to the rear of the building. This drop-off and pick-up loop will be accessible via Deanhurst and Dickinson Avenue. For more information regarding the Long-Range Facilities Plan, please visit: https://www.camphillsd.k12.pa.us/LRFP.
As you read through this edition of the Camp Hill Newsletter, you will find many reasons to continue to celebrate the accomplishments of our graduating senior class and the overall success of the 2018-19 school year. I am looking for ward to the 2019-20 school year and continuing to ser ve all stakeholders in supporting our mission to provide students with the foundational skills, knowledge and opportunities for lifelong success. As a District our goal is to maintain strong collaborative relationships and a shared belief that ever y day is a great day to have Lion PRIDE. We thank you for your continued support and for partnering with us to empower our students to achieve their full potential!
