Three area men participated in community art show and antiques appraisal fundraiser

BLUE RIDGE SUMMIT, Pa. -- Three area men participated in a community art show and antiques appraisal Nov. 7 at the Blue Ridge Summit Fire and Rescue fire hall to help raise money for a garden in Amanda K. Bowders' honor.


They were Sam Tressler of Emmitsburg, Md., Terry Barkdoll of Waynesboro, Pa., and Mel Halterman, also of Waynesboro. They donated their services for the event.

The garden is in front of the fire hall. Bowders, 19, died on Valentine's Day 2007, in a sledding accident.
