Hallstead Boro council received a generous gift at their November 18 meeting; a check in the amount of $1,000 was presented to the boro on behalf of the Timmy Fancher Memorial Race. Tom Hamlin, co-director of the race, told council that many people in the area had known Timmy Fancher, and had run with him frequently. The race, held in July, had been very successful and would undoubtedly be even more successful next year. The contribution is to be used for the boro’s parks and recreation, for whatever uses council should decide. Accompanying Mr. Hamlin were Jack Hart, Mary Fancher (Timmy’s mother), Tammy Brant (Timmy’s fiancé); also present was Richard Franks, a member of the Great Bend Boro Council; Great Bend was also presented with a check in the amount of $1,000, to be used for parks and recreation. Mr. Hamlin concluded by saying that, hopefully, this presentation would be a yearly event. Council president Joe Franks expressed council’s appreciation, and said that it would be appropriate to put up a plaque to keep Tim’s memory alive. "I’m sure I speak for all of us," he said. "If you need any help or support, we’re here."

The information he supplied included the names of the inspectors from DEP and the Susquehanna County Soil and Water Conservation who have been to the Susquehanna Boro site; he urged the supervisors to contact these individuals for more information. Supervisor Cowperthwait responded, "From what you’re telling me the right people have been contacted. Until DEP tells us we have a problem..."
