Band sandwich sale

The Hancock Middle-Senior High School Panther Band announces its January sandwich sale. 

As in previous sales, three choices are offered: ham, turkey and roast beef. 

The sandwiches cost $3 each. For $5, customers can add a bag of chips and a drink — soda or water — for a complete meal. 

Orders will be taken through Jan. 24. The sandwiches must be paid for in advance. 

Contact to place an order.

And congratulations to band member Autumn Pittman, who is first chair of the All County Orchestra and Band. 

The All County Concerts are coming up:  All County Orchestra, Saturday, Jan. 26; and All County Band/Jazz Band, Feb. 2. Both concerts are at 7 p.m. in the North Hagerstown High School auditorium. 

Tickets can be purchased in advance through the school, or some might be available at the door, but don’t count on it. The concerts are quite popular and are a great winter diversion.


Pennies for Patients

The results of the Pennies for Patients school fundraiser are in and they are impressive. 

The students at Hancock Elementary collected almost $1,500. 

The total from both schools for this year was $3,551.64, far above the earlier yearly average of $1,900 for the years 2006 to 2011. 

The second- and third-graders received gift certificates of $25 from Pizza Hut. 

First-place gift cards went to Erin Webb’s second-grade class, Spencer Shives’s seventh-grade class and Susan Twigg’s freshman class. 

This spring, both schools will enjoy a special reward: Lenny Robinson, who portrays Batman, will travel to Hancock to personally congratulate the students. 

Doc Holliday, school counselor, expressed thanks to the local branch of CNB Bank, which assisted in counting the money. 

When a bucket of coins was brought in, the staff would stop what they were doing to help get the coins counted in the machines.

This year, students were particularly motivated by two local students who are battling  illness: Tristan Douglas and Taylor Lipinski. 

Douglas has received a positive update on his illness and Lipinski is now in remission from leukemia.
