Street sweeping will begin on Monday, April 5, 2021. Sweeping will take place the day AFTER your regular scheduled trash collection on the 2nd and 4th weeks of the month. Please avoid placing grass clippings, tree limbs or any other debris in the street. This causes damage to the sweeper and down-time for the operator resulting in an inability to maintain the schedule. Property owners are required to keep trees along the curb-line trimmed to a minimum of 12 feet above the street so that the sweeper can work close to the curb without damage to the machine. If branches fronting your property do not meet the above requirement the street will not be swept and you will be cited under property maintenance code.
Compost Facility located at 422 S. 24th Street, reopened on Monday, January 11, 2021. The site improvements assure the facility continues to serve as an economically and environmentally beneficial alternative to landfill disposal. One important addition is an automated gate that opens using Access Cards that will be issued by the Borough. The new access system ensures the Borough can monitor persons entering the facility and limit access to outside commercial contractors as necessary. All persons wishing to use the facility in the 2021 season must obtain or reacti-
vate an Access Card in order to drop-off yard waste or to pick up leaf compost or mulch. Access cards are for the calendar year. Compost Facility Registration and renewal can be found on the Borough Website. The Registration Form, Compost Facility Layout, and Hours of Operation posted on the Borough Website (www.camphillborough.com). Please follow these key points as we transition to the new program:
COMPOST FACILITY ACCESS - KEY POINTS
• Access Cards are available for purchase by Camp Hill Borough resident. • The cost is $15 for residents and $800 for approved Borough-based contractors. Access Cards are valid on a calendar year basis. Replacement cards are $5. • You must submit your completed Registration Form and payment in the drop-box at the entrance of the Borough Building. • Access Cards may not be shared with any persons not living in your household. • The automated gate and facility is under surveillance to assure only authorized persons and acceptable materials enter the facility. • Please keep your Access card in your car. Upon entry, swipe the reader on the left-hand side to raise the lift-arm. Upon exit, you do not need to swipe, just approach the lift-arm slowly and the arm will raise so you may exit. • Please follow the instructions posted on the new signs at the compost facility, drive slowly, and exercise care as you enter and exit the facility.
• Fall Leaf Collection will end on Friday, December 18 • Your leaf collection day will be the day after your trash collection day! • Leaves may be raked into the street five (5) days prior to your regular scheduled curbside collection schedule. • Leaves should be windrowed along the curb or edge of the roadway. • Leaves prior to the October 19th start date can be brought to the Compost Facility or can remain on your property until the curbside leaf collection begins. • Residents are encouraged to place leaves curbside (in plastic cans or brown recy-
Codes Enforcement cle bags) during the 1st and 3rd Saturday’s during the months of October and November for Penn Waste to collect. • DO NOT blow or rake grass, sticks or other yard debris in the street at any time. This is a violation under Ordinance § 176-10 regarding the prohibition of creating obstructions on the streets & sidewalks. • DO NOT place branches, grass clippings, rocks or other debris in with leaves. Any foreign objects placed in leaf piles may damage leaf equipment and significantly impact the leafing schedule. • DO NOT leave cars parked along the street the day of your leaf collection. • PLEASE remember that inclement weather will delay the leaf collection schedule. Residents are encouraged to take leaves to the Compost Facility located next to the Public Works Facility at 422 S. 24th Street. Please visit the borough website, select Public Works and then select Compost Faciltiy.
Plowing borough streets after a snow event is a time consuming process. Following a few simple guidelines can make the operator’s job safer and more efficient: • Pay attention to local forecasts as winter weather and road conditions can change very quickly. • Minimize driving during and immediately following a snow event. The fewer the vehicles on the roadway allows the operator to clear the road more efficiently. • Remove vehicles and trailers from the street prior to a winter event. This will allow the operator to clear the street from edge-to-edge. • Remove basketball hoops from the borough right-of-way. • Please keep a safe operating distance from winter maintenance vehicles. • If you have a mailbox along the roadway, periodically check to ensure that the post and mailbox are in good condition. The post and mailbox must be sturdy enough to withstand snow coming off the plow blade. • Never push, blow or shovel snow into a cleared roadway.
• Never attempt to stop or flag down a plow driver while salting or plowing. • Clearing a space along the curb or edge of road before your driveway will reduce the amount of the snow placed in your driveway. • Wait until the street is cleared before shoveling your driveway and sidewalks. The plow operator will make multiple passes on the same street. • Plow drivers cannot direct snow as it comes off the plow. Plow blades are fixed to plow snow to the right.
Do not flush swiffers, cloth or paper rags, baby wipes, baby cloths, dental floss or other similar materials into the sanitary sewer system. These items will cause clogs in both the public and private sewers, damage sewage pumps and increase maintenance costs. Property owners (private) own and are responsible for the lateral and the building sewer. The lateral extends from the sewer main in the street to the Right-of-Way (typically behind the curb or sidewalk). The building sewer extends from the Right-of-Way to the home. The Borough (public) is responsible for the sewer main in the street. Sewer customers are reminded to keep traps in homes/businesses filled with water. This will reduce sewer odors from entering the living and working spaces of the property. If you experience a sewer emergency during normal working hours (8 AM to 4:30 PM) please call 717-737-3456 and provide your name, address and telephone number. After hours, please call the police department at 717-737-1570 and they will reach out to On-Call personnel. The sewer main will be checked by Public Works Staff and flushed if necessary. If
the sewer main is open and free flowing, staff will contact you and recommend you call a plumber.
HAVE YOU INSPECTED YOUR CURB AND SIDEWALK LATELY?
Curb and sidewalk are the responsibility of the property owner as outlined in “Chapter 176-13, Responsibility of the property owner”. Please inspect your curb and sidewalk and make any necessary repairs as outlined in Chapter 176, Streets and Sidewalks-Revised. The Chapter 176 ordinance can be viewed from the Borough website…Borough homepage, click Government, click Borough Code under Codes and Zoning, click Chapter 176-Streets and Sidewalks-Revised 2018. If you have questions and would like to talk with Borough staff about your curb or sidewalk please call 717-730-3964 and someone will return your call.

VOLUNTEER OF THE YEAR AWARD Since 2012 Camp Hill Borough has recognized a resident in the borough for their contributions.
The 2020 Volunteer of the Year winner is Steve Karl. He is a dedicated and longtime resident of the Borough. He has shown his commitment to the community, especially to the children, in many ways over the years. He was a volunteer coach with all of his children’s activities and sports teams. He was also the longtime president of the Athletic Boosters Club contributing hundreds of hours and helping to raise a tremendous amount of money to go towards the athletic programs for students. He also has volunteered for more than 15 years with the Canadensis program for the 6th Grade Education program. He was involved with several construction projects including Eisenhower Elementary School and on the Executive Committee for construction of our new stadium, track and tennis courts in Siebert Park in 2014. Because of his commitment to Camp Hill Borough he decided to run for School Board, where he has served for over 10 years and currently is President of School Board. For all these reasons and so many more, Steve Karl was the recipient of the Camp Hill Borough’s Volunteer Award. The 2021 Application will be available on our website in the coming months.

PENN WASTE BILL ADJUSTMENT Beginning April 1, 2021, Penn Waste bills will be adjusted. As expenses for local trash companies have gone up, rates have been raised in all local communities. In an increasingly volatile and competitive trash disposal market, the Borough worked hard to negotiate a fair agreement extension that will also provide important community benefits. New Rates for the Term 4/1/21-3/31/23: • Year 1 (4/1/21-3/31/22) - Quarterly Rate of $53.25 • Year 2 (4/1/22-3/31/23) - Quarterly Rate of $62.25 Low-Volume Service (24 bags per year): • Year 1 (4/1/21-3/31/22) - $6.00 per bag • Year 2 (4/1/22-3/31 /23) - $7.00 per bag Penn Waste Inc. will continue to provide the residents of Camp Hill trash and unlimited recycling collection, and billing will continue to come from Camp Hill Borough, included in the Utility Bill. Current services will remain in place, except that starting this April, yard waste collection will be collected only once a month. Please see the calendar on the Borough website for collection dates. Additional Benefits/Changes are part of this agreement, including the following: • An annually scheduled Document Shredding Event will be offered, free of charge to all residents of the Borough. • Three containers will be provided annually to the Borough to be used in the event of storm damage to aid residents in the cleanup effort. • The recycling dumpster by the Borough building will be removed, but residents are welcome to use the recycling dumpsters located by Public Works. For all trash payment and billing questions, please contact Rachael Burger at (717) 7376532 or email@example.com. The billing will continue to be quarterly in January, April, July, & October.

Thrive Here: The Impact of the Downtown Camp Hill Association
"Pennsylvania has nearly 1 million small businesses, but I'm confident that none are in a better position to thrive than the 100 small businesses on our Downtown Camp Hill corridor," says Sue Pera, president, Downtown Camp Hill Association. Working to strengthen the economic health of service and retail businesses on Market Street, the 9-member DCHA is building positive brand awareness for the Borough, a robust retail environment, community health impact, seasonal events, and inclusive opportunities to #ThriveHere for businesses and residents. "As a small business owner and board member, I am deeply inspired by the support our small business community has received. We are grateful to live and work in a community that supports shopping, dining, and giving back locally," says Lisa DeCavalcante, owner, Little Black Dress. The Association has developed sponsorships for five events and onboarded new partners that will bring additional services to the community. Penn State Health, The Drexel Group, Halbruner, Hatch & Guise, LLP, Holmes Cycling & Fitness, The Watershed Pub and Reager & Adler are some recent sponsors supporting our events. Bringing new and creative opportunities for community events like the Candy Cane Walk, Spring Fling, Summer Soiree, and Harvest Hop, as well as providing support and sponsorship to The Peyton Walker Foundation for the first-ever community Save Station in Pennsylvania, the Board is committed to "building a prosperous and diverse business district that supports a walkable and shopable neighborhood concept, inspires community connections and entrepreneurial potential, and believes a vibrant downtown is the heart and soul of this historic Borough." "As business owners or residents, each board member has a passion to uplift and support our neighborhoods. While we do provide numerous retail events that bring foot traffic, new friends, and community
engagement, the Earl Besch Project is a great example of using our network of businesses during the Candy Cane Walk to meet the immediate needs of families and students in our school district. Our promise of #ThriveHere extends to every person and family who calls Camp Hill home," says Anne Deeter Gallaher, owner of Deeter Gallaher Group LLC and board member.

GIRL SCOUTS VIRTUAL COOKIE BOOTH
In my 13 years of Girl Scouting, the most frequent question I get asked is, “When are you selling cookies?” Last year, almost immediately after we received our first shipment of cookies, the precautions from COVID-19 prevented us from inperson sales and deliveries. This left us with a dilemma: how were we going to sell our cookies without being able to use our normal platforms of cookie booths and door-to-door sales? The answer was to completely redesign our business model. We marketed the cookies entirely through social media and were able to sell virtually. We also had the option to buy boxes to be donated to local hospitals for the medical workers and staff. At the end of the cookie season in April, we met our troop selling goal, selling every box we had. Cookie sales are important because it teaches entrepreneurial skills and funds all troop activities. Over the years, cookie sales have funded domestic and international travels for my troop in addition to activities like camping and badge work. This selling season we expect to focus even more on strengthening our online sales. Go to www.gshpa.org/cookies to find an online platform and insert your zip code. Cookie season starts January 15. Thank you for supporting Girl Scouts! Jocelyn Little, CHHS Class of 2021, Troop 11967
The Club’s only goal is to try to preserve /improve Camp Hill’s water, air, land, flora and fauna. We are always looking for new members who share our interests in the environment and to energize our organization. To apply pick up an application, call (737-4548), email (email@example.com) the Recreation Dept., or come to a CHEC meeting. We are currently in the process of formulating plans for 2021. For additional information or to suggest future program ideas, contact Paul Garrett at 717- 514-3546 or firstname.lastname@example.org As we are able, CHEC intends to continue our efforts to recycle at the Siebert Park athletic events and Little League Baseball games. We have adopted Market Street in the Borough and clean it four times a year and also clean litter in other areas of the Borough throughout the warmer weather months. Between May and September CHEC helps the Conodoguinet Creek Watershed Association clean out sections of the Creek. Our first cleanup is scheduled for May 16th. Let’s talk about RECYCLING. We know you want to do the right thing BUT Penn Waste receives many items that they are not recyitems that should be in your container: • Aluminum & Steel Cans, cleaned • Plastic Bottles & Jugs, #1, 2, & 5, cleaned out; throw away the caps. • Newspaper, clean & dry with no food contact. • Glass Bottles and Jars, cleaned out; throw away the lids. • Corrugated Cardboard, dry & flattened w/no food contact, e.g. recycle the top of the pizza box; throw away the grease-stained bottom. • Milk and Juice Cartons, rinsed Unfortunately, Penn Waste’s guidance for the time being is “WHEN IN DOUBT – THROW IT OUT”.

A Message From the Director...
I hope all of you enjoyed a happy and safe holiday season. We were able to hold a fun holiday activity in December for Toys for Tots and many of you came out and enjoyed the Parade of Lights for Toys for Tots in Siebert Park. It truly was wonderful and a complete community effort. So far this winter we have had some snow and I hope you were able to enjoy it if winter recreation is your cup of tea. With the snow not lasting long, a lot of you are able to get out and walk and run in the community which is nice to see, even in the cold temperatures. Continuing to be active outside if you can is important especially in the winter months and while we aren’t able to offer indoor recreational activities. We are continuing to monitor our current situation and will hold indoor recreational activities as soon as it is safe to do so. As we hope for healthier times and warmer weather, we are planning our summer recreational activities in the Borough. As you might expect, all plans are subject to change, potentially significant change, as the Covid-19 situation evolves and vaccine distribution ramps up. So please keep an eye on our website as it will be updated as needed. If you are on Facebook be sure to like the Camp Hill Parks And Recreation page to enable another way to find out what
is going on in the Recreation Department. We have tentative plans for Siebert Park Day Camp, Theatre camps, Preschool camp, Lacrosse camp and Science Camps so far. Other camps will be added as information is available. We are also tentatively planning our Bunny Eggstravaganza, Kite Festival and Memorial Day Parade some information that can be found in this newsletter. Anyone interested in participating please keep an eye on our website. Please remember that each Newsletter covers approximately 3 months of activities and events. As with all Camp Hill Recreation programs, registration is on a first come first served basis. Please read over all registration procedures for each program carefully, so you do not miss any important deadlines. If you have any questions, concerns or ideas for new programs, please contact the recreation office by phone at (717)737-4548 or at firstname.lastname@example.org. I am a one person office, so I am not always able to answer my phone when it rings. If I am not available to answer your call, please leave a detailed message and I will return your call as soon as possible (usually within one business day). Thank you,
Audrey J. Logar
RECREATION COMMISSION MEMBERS
Jon Arosell, Dustin Chapman, Nick Decker, William Forrey, Patty Gilroy, Melanie Gurgiolo, Interim Borough Manager Frank Lynch, Interim Superintendent Patty Sanker, Mayor Mark Simpson, Doug Snyder and Paul White Cornerstone Coffee House and the Sutliff Family. A special thank you to the group of people who heard the idea and were willing to help make it happen: Mayor Mark Simpson, Patty Gilroy, Jon Arosell, Jeff Capp, Gary Rini and Bridget Rini. Also to Borough Council, the Recreation Commission and many other community members who volunteered as well. A total community effort! Based on the response, we achieved our goal of collecting toys during a pandemic and fun was had by all.
PARADE OF LIGHTS FOR TOYS FOR TOTS THANK YOU’S
In a year with limited community-centered opportunities, we were trying to find a way to have an event that was safe and fun for everyone. In December, Camp Hill Borough and Centric Bank joined forces to host the Parade of Lights for Toys for Tots. This was our first year for this event in place of our traditional Toys for Tots Parade. We had 27 different displays throughout the park. We had 1,782 cars drive through our display and were able to collect 55 boxes of toys, plus bikes and toys too big for the boxes. We filled 4 ABF Freight cubes compared to the 1 ½ in years past. We collected a lot of cash donations which we purchased toys with for the Marines. We had support from many businesses, clubs and students in the community. Families enjoyed driving through the park and seeing all the lights and Santa. This event could not have been a success without the continued support of donations from various businesses and organizations especially Centric Bank. We would like to thank the Pursel Family and Mid Penn Bank as well for their contribution. There were a number of in kind donations, that don’t’ go unnoticed. Thank you to ABF U-Pack Moving, Camp Hill Woman’s, Camp Hill Lion’s Club, Camp Hill Fire Company, Camp Hill Fire Police,

Prizes were donated by Blooms by Vickrey and winners were posted on Facebook and website. Congratulations Winners! 1st place: 747 Country Club Road 2nd Place: 25 South 29th Street 3rd Place: 2018 Dickinson Avenue

There Were Horses in Camp Hill
John Sutton, blacksmith, born in 1856, lived in Camp Hill most of his life. He lived and worked here in 1890, when the population was 191. By the time he died in 1920, the population had risen to 1,636. John Sutton is shown standing on the far left with some of his “customers”. (Yes, they are mules, not horses!) His blacksmith business was located behind the family home at 2001 Market Street, the site of today’s Camera Box. Our volunteer fire department was organized in May of 1908. There were 47 original organizers, with fund-raising a primary activity. Their handsome brick building at 2201 Market Street was dedicated in 1909. This first fire truck operated by the C. H. Fire Department, was a chemical, horse drawn wagon. The horses were supplied by the milkman, Edward Walters, of 2139 Market Street. If Mr. Walters and his horses were not available, the firemen would flag down a trolley car and have it tow the wagon in
the desired direction! If the horses were busy delivering milk, the firemen pulled the wagon themselves! Or, if they were lucky, they’d hitch it to a passing trolley! Proprietors of local businesses, such as butcher, grocery and hardware businesses, continued through the years to be the core of the volunteer department. When the siren sounded, they ran down, or across, Market Street to answer the call. It was possible to identify the type of emergency by the number
of rings of the siren. A Saturday noon siren was a long-time tradition. Frank Frownfelter stabled polo ponies behind his home at 100 North 21st Street, on ground that is now the eastern end of the current Fire Department parking lot. In the 1950’s, when this photo was taken, the front door of the house faced 21st Street. It now faces Walnut. From left to right are Quiz, Point Blank, and Norma Jean. [The polo field was on the north side, of Market Street, just west of 36th Street. Max Hempt was another polo player whose horses lived on one of the Hempt family farms outside of Camp Hill.] Several generations of our children “visited” the horses while going to and from Lincoln Elementary School at 19th and Walnut Streets. A few lucky ones were allowed to exercise these horses in and around the cemetery!
CAMP HILL FIRE COMPANY #1 2021 CHICKEN BBQ SCHEDULE Hello Camp Hill Residents, The Coronavirus has forced all of us to look at things differently this year regarding the CH Chicken BBQ. We are going to have 4 separate sales – May 8th, June 12th, August 14th, and September 11th with no rain dates. The price for the dinner will be $10, which includes chicken, potato, applesauce, roll and butter. There will be no presales (door to door), so mark your calendars! Sales will be on a first come/first served basis, starting at 11:00 am until we sell out. There will be a drive through for pickup on Walnut Street in front of the firehouse. One final note, this is the only fundraiser of the year for our volunteer Fire Company. The monies we receive after the cost of the food go directly to updating our technology and equipment, to ensure the safety of all residents. We are always looking for volunteers to assist in all aspects of running a volunteer fire company. If you are interested, please stop by the firehouse on any Monday night at 7:00 pm or talk to us at the Chicken BBQ. You may also email Dave Apgar at email@example.com.

FOR MORE INFORMATION ABOUT THE EXECUTIVE DIRECTOR'S POSITION, PLEASE VISIT OUR WEBSITE AT WWW.THELIONFOUNDATION.ORG.
Our Children, Our Community, Our Future Dear Lion Foundation Familyâ€Ś You may have already heard the news that I am leaving my position at the foundation at the end of April. It has been an incredible 13 years! When I joined The Lion Foundation as its executive director, my youngest son, who will graduate high school in the spring, was in kindergarten. The organization was in its infancy. But over the years, with the help of many volunteers, supporters and believers in its mission, it is now a shining star in the world of education foundations. I truly believe that this is the right time in the evolution of The Lion Foundation to take this step. I was originally tasked with the job of establishing a sustainable education foundation and a process for funding important academic, cultural and athletic programs in our unique, small school district. I believe that, with your support, we have accomplished that. It is because of all of you that we have been able to do so many wonderful things over the years. Together, we created a system to fund more than $1.6 million in grants supporting our schools and community. We built and endowed the annual operation and maintenance of the Grace Pollock Performing Arts Center, supported the Siebert Park Stadium renovation project, and brought the community together to help support our schools and students when they needed it most. And when the pandemic hit, we came together again to provide critical funding for technology as our district quickly shifted to giving students the ability to learn safely both in person and at home. I know that when I step away from my role with the foundation, it will be in good hands. We have so many talented people in our community willing to help. The Lion Foundation board has already started the transition process for filling my position. Be assured that I will help with this transition in any way I can. Finally, thank you all for the support you have given me and our schools over the years. It shows what can be done if we all work together to support Our Children, Our Community, and Our Future. WE AREâ€Ś Camp Hill! My best,

GRANT TO SUPPORT SOCIAL DISTANCING
Hon. Elizabeth S. Beckley Jennifer Briggs Christine Holden Jo Mitchell
The Lion Foundation funded school efforts to improve social distancing in part with a $13,000 grant from the Renew Cumberland County Relief Block Grant Program. This included expanding outdoor picnic table seating options on the MS/HS campus, and purchasing additional cafeteria tables for both eating and studying by students at Hoover Elementary and the Middle and High Schools. This Project was financed in part by a grant from Cumberland County available through the Pennsylvania Department of Community and Economic Development, via the federal CARES Act. Funding from our donors was also used to complete this project. Thank you Cumberland County Board of Commissioners and Lion Foundation donors for your support in keeping our students and staff safe!
