THE MAYOR's REPORT: Father's Day and some local history

So, if you brought 17 horses to town 106 years ago, where were those hitching posts you would have parked at? The location I referred to two weeks ago will soon follow. Anyway, I write on Father’s Day (Sunday) while on vacation with the family. At breakfast this morning I shared stories of my Dad and how he helped so many people during his life. Dad grew up dirt poor and enlisted in the Army in 1939 at the age of 17. The Army was going to feed him three meals a day. He never forgot his roots and served others for many years. I congratulate one of my Dad’s and my dear friend Sam Worley of Chambersburg. Former county commissioner and Chambersburg mayor, Worley turned 100 years of age on June 13. As a young banker Sam helped Dad get in business in Franklin County in the mid-1950s with a loan. Those World War II veterans certainly looked after each other. Mr. Worley and Dad both served in the Army Air Corps in Europe.
