What Do We Do With
All These Zucchinis??
They’re everywhere. ON kitchen counters, workplace coffee counters, car seats, porches (floors and railings), roadside stands, piled high in grocery store produce areas, still in the field, and oh, nightmare of nightmares, still multiplying!

If you’re going to present 75 Boy Scout merit badges and more than two dozen whitewater rafting safety course certificates, what better place to hold the ceremony on a warm summer day than at the pool?
Boy Scout Troop 97 of Londonderry Twp. held its recent Court of Honor around swimming and summer yard games, calling the event the “End of Summer’’ party. Scout Ben Neithercoat, the master of ceremonies, arranged the program.
Scouts received 75 merit badges for everything from kayaking to pottery to engineering. Others received badges for citizenship, bird study and wood carving.

The partners of Tattered Flag Brewery & Still Works, the new brewery and distillery that will move into a renovated Elks Building next spring, presented their recipe for three of their beers at a tasting at Kuppy’s Diner on Sunday, Oct. 4.
The pale ale, amber beer and coffee stout that Tattered Flag will brew was paired with food from Kuppy’s to a curious crowd eager to get preview of what is to come.
The tasting drew people like Dr. Herb Henderson, a retired Middletown dentist, and Audra Henderson, his wife. He hasn’t had a beer since 1955, and the Tattered Flag sampling was her first beer. They love Middletown and were excited to see what the fledging brewery would bring to town.
Nick Chimienti, a Republican candidate for Dauphin County sheriff in the Nov. 3 general election, also attended. Bob Molly provided music.
Tickets sold for $5, and the proceeds were donated to the Furry Friends Network.

Each autumn, the moon is celebrated with its own festival in parts of Asia – China, Japan, Korea, Malaysia and Singapore – for it is believed that the orb is tied to the abundance of water and the fertility of soil.
Students, faculty and friends at Penn State Harrisburg held their own Moon Festival at the Capital Union Building on campus on Sunday, Sept. 27.
Guests enjoyed food, music and dance from China, Korea and other Asian nations. The celebration ended with a moon cake, an individual cake popular in China that’s made with green tea, vegetables, lotus paste and other ingredients.
The Moon Festival in modern times has transformed into a holiday with family and food, “like Thanksgiving,’’ said Chloe, a student from Korea and one of the organizers of the university celebration.
The university’s International Student Support Services office and the Chinese Students Association presented the event.
