    - St. Valentine's Day celebrates the feasts of two Christian martyrs of this name. One, a priest and physician, was beaten and beheaded on the Flaminan Way at Rome, Italy, Feb 14, AD 269, during the reign of Emperor Claudius II. Another Valentine, the bishop of Terni, is said to have been beheaded, also on the Flaminian Way at Rome, Feb 14 (possibly in a later year). Both history and legend are vague and contradictory about details of the Valentines, and some say that Feb 14 was selected for the celebration of Christian martyrs as a diversion from the ancient pagan observance of Lupercalia. An old legend has it that birds choose their mates on Valentine's Day. Now it is one of the most widely observed unofficial holidays. It is an occasion for the exchange of gifts (usually books, flowers, or sweets) and greeting cards with affectionate or humorous messages.

    - President's Day observes the birthdays of George Washington (Feb 22nd) and Abraham Lincoln (Feb 12). With the adoption of the Monday Holiday Law (which moved the observance of George Washington's birthday from Feb 22 to the third Monday in February), some of the specific significance of the event was lost and added impetus was given to the popular description of that holiday as President's Day as a day to honor all former presidents of the US, though the federal holiday is still Washington's Birthday. Annually, the third Monday in February.

  • | 7:00pm - 8:30pm | Local Events, Master Gardener, Native Plants, Gardening, Flowers
    - Are you a keen gardener? Do you love to share your gardening knowledge to help others be more successful gardeners? Then you might be interested in the Penn State Master Gardener program. Penn State Master Gardeners are volunteers trained by Penn State Extension who assist Extension staff in providing and expanding its educational programs in consumer horticulture.

    A free program on “Becoming a Master Gardener” will be held at the Cleve J. Fredricksen Library, 100 North 19th Street, Camp Hill, on Tuesday, February 16, from 7:00 to 8:30 p.m., in the lower level Community Room. Master Gardener Lois Kriens will lead the presentation, followed by a panel discussion with several Master Gardeners to answer your questions about the program and this year’s basic training.

    There is no pre-registration required to attend this free program, which is the first in the 2016 “Gardening with Nature” series at Fredricksen Library, an annual series of informal workshops on gardening topics offered by Penn State Master Gardeners.
    Future programs in the 2016 “Gardening with Nature” series include herb gardens, growing moss and ferns, mosquitoes, ticks, and other insect pests, botany, planting trees, great plants for central Pennsylvania, and the garden in winter. Master Gardeners will also share information about native plants, rain gardens, rain barrels, and conservation landscaping. Registration information will be available at the February 16 program.
    Penn State programs are open to all, and Penn State is committed to affirmative action, equal opportunity, and the diversity of its workforce. There is a fee, an application, and a selection process to join the Penn State Master Gardener program in Cumberland and Perry counties.
    Master Gardener basic training classes will be held on Wednesday afternoons from 12:00 noon to 3:00 p.m., beginning August 17, 2016, with orientation and ending on December 7 with the closed-book final exam. There is no class the week of Thanksgiving. Half of the classes will be held at the Cumberland County Extension office and half at the Dauphin County Extension office.

    Following successful completion of training, Master Gardener apprentices begin participating in Extension-approved volunteer activities to meet the 50 hours of volunteer service required to receive certification. Our mission is education, and Penn State Master Gardeners in Cumberland and Perry counties volunteer for youth programs, horticulture therapy, demonstration gardens, plant clinics, plant sales, gardening workshops, garden tours, and more.

    For more information about the Penn State Master Gardener program in Cumberland and Perry counties, please visit our website http://extension.psu.edu/cumberland, e-mail Annette MaCoy at ahm11@psu.edu, or call 717-240-6500.

    - February 18, 1930, Pluto was discovered by astronomer Clyde Tombaugh at the Lowell Observatory at Flagstaff, AZ. It was given the name of the Roman god of the underworld. It was considered the ninth planet of the solar system until 2006, when astronomers reclassified it as a dwarf planet.

  • | 5:00pm - 8:00pm | Community and Civic Groups, Clubs, fish fry, dinner
    - Seven Sorrows Catholic Church in Middletown will hold its Annual Fish Fry beginning Friday, February 12 and continuing weekly through March 18 from 5:00 to 8:00 p.m. in the school cafeteria. The menu features all-you-can-eat batter-dipped fish (eat-in only) plus lemon-pepper fish, crab cakes, jumbo fried shrimp, macaroni and cheese, pierogies, and a variety of delicious desserts (now including key lime pie).

    For 19 years, the parish has been serving hungry patrons who come from throughout south-central Pennsylvania to enjoy the meatless meals.

    “People are coming for the food,” said Fish Fry Coordinator Lisa Fortunato, “but leave with the experience. So many people have made friends with those they would never have crossed paths with other than here.”

    In 2015, 5,000 pounds of haddock was served to more than 7,400 guests by at least 100 volunteers each week. The most popular dessert is the lemon-berry mascarpone cake.

    The fish fry is located at 360 E. Water St. in Middletown (17057) and is handicap accessible. Overflow parking is available at nearby Feaser Middle School. Doors open at 3:30 p.m.; service begins at 5:00 p.m.
    Dine in or place your takeout order by calling 717-944-5488 after 4:00 p.m. Cash, check, MasterCard, Visa, and Discover cards are accepted.

    Also available for sale during the Fish Fry – delicious handmade chocolate eggs available in peanut butter, butter cream, coconut, and NEW FOR 2016 - peppermint! Each egg is dipped in white, dark, or luscious milk chocolate.
    The Fish Fry, held February 12, 19, 26, and March 4, 11, and 18, is sponsored by Seven Sorrows Parish. For more information, including full menu, visit http://www.sevensorrows.org. Click on “Lenten Fish Fry.”
