In preparation for a future herb garden, sixth and seventh grade students at Seven Generations Charter School excavated next to one of Emmaus' treasured historic landmarks with an archeological dig.

EXTRAORDINARY NEIGHBORS Western Salisbury Church ringers bring joy to others

Wednesday, December 12, 2012 by BEVERLY SPRINGER Special to The Press in Local News

Those who have achieved "a certain age" know the importance of physical exercise.

Bend, stretch, reach; weight down, arteries clear, joints limber – these are the goals. Exercising our humanity is just as beneficial as toning our bodies.

Dr. Anthony Moyer and the members of Western Salisbury Church's hand bell choir hone their empathy through the medium of music.

On Dec. 3, the ringers performed at the Emmaus Village Assisted Living Center, Emmaus.
