Volunteer fire companies to be awarded $2,000 in prizes
EBENSBURG -- Two facets of the first-ever Cambria Care Center Golf Classic scheduled for Friday, Sept. 5, will allow members of local volunteer fire companies to enjoy a little fun and games as they vie for cash prizes.
Cambria Care Center will donate $1500 to the winning team of a special Firefighter Foursome Flight during its tournament being held at the Ebensburg Country Club along Manor Drive in Cambria Township. In addition, they will award $500 to the company donating the Best of Show Basket for the event.
“We know it can be a struggle for local volunteers to raise funds for their company,” said Cate Planisky, CCC’s golf tournament organizer. “Here’s a chance for them to have a relaxing day among friends and go home with money in the bank for their company.”
The Firefighter Foursome must be made up strictly of members of the fire company and will compete only among other firefighting foursomes. The Best of Show Basket should represent the company and the communities they serve and will be judged by the dinner guests that evening.
The day-long event is open to all local golf enthusiasts, not just firefighters, and will begin with a pre-game luncheon immediately followed by a shotgun start, four-person scramble tournament. An “All Fore Friday” mixer begins at 5:30 that evening and the awards dinner will follow. Non-golfing community members are invited to attend the mixer and dinner-only event. Skill prizes will also be awarded during dinner and the “Golf Widow(er) Basket Raffle” drawing will be held.
Registration forms and flyers outlining the Best of Show Basket contest have been sent to the local fire companies and municipalities. Registration forms for golfing, dinner reservations, and sponsorship opportunities can also be requested by contacting Planisky at 814/471-2111 at Cambria Care Center.
The tournament has been organized to benefit the Fire School Program of the Volunteer Fireman’s Association of Cambria County & Vicinity. The school, based in Patton, holds classes, seminars, and hands-on training for volunteer firefighters each spring. This past spring, nearly 800 firefighters from across the state participated in the classes. 090514

Centennial History Book second printing available
NORTHERN CAMBRIA -- The Barnesboro Centennial History Book, originally published in 1994, has been reprinted. If you missed out on the original run, you're in luck! The second printing is now available. The original printing of 2,000 copies in 1994 sold out in 1996. The Susquehanna Historical Society of Northern Cambria decided last year to use funds they have saved to have a reprint of the book done.
-- A limited number of books have been reprinted and have been divided and donated to the Northern Cambria Public Library and Hope Fire Company of Northern Cambria as a long-term fundraiser for those organizations. 100% of the proceeds from book sales will stay with these two non-profit groups.
-- The books are $40.00 each if picked up and $40.00 each plus $6.00 shipping and handling if ordered by mail.
-- You may choose which non-profit you wish to support. If you wish to support the fire company, order from Hope Fire Company, PO Box 1217, Northern Cambria, PA 15714 or pick up your copy at Charlson's Furniture (on behalf of the Fire Company). If you would like to support the library, pick up or order your book from Northern Cambria Public Library, 1030 Philadelphia Avenue, Northern Cambria, PA. -- Books are beautiful hardbound books with old photos and history of Barnesboro with sections on businesses, churches, people influential to our town and more. Will make a great addition to your bookshelf, or a great gift.
