    This fall, CCRRA teamed up with Weis Markets to hold its annual poster contest open to all fifth-grade students in the county. With a theme “Feeding our Friends,” 16 posters were selected – among “hundreds” of entries, according to CCRRA education coordinator Amy Schirf.

    The free calendar can be found at Weis Markets around the county.
