Supporters sign petition to save square parking

September 13, 1998

At a rally in Waynesboro, Pa., on Saturday, about 1,000 people signed their names in favor of preserving the square, said organizer John Leos. The Waynesboro Historical Society and the grass roots group "Save Our Square" are trying to stop the Pennsylvania Department of Transportation from eliminating parking spaces on the square. The group has moved into high gear since the Waynesboro Council voted to change the square last month. Speakers at the rally included retired Franklin County Judge John Keller, former Mayor Thomas Painter, former Council President Kinney Stouffer and former Hagerstown Mayor Steven T. Sager. "The people spoke and we're going to carry this message," said Candy Kitchen owner Leos, who lives and works on the square.
