HARRISTOWN NEWS: Household goods, clothing giveaway returns Saturday

It’s the time of year for traveling, family gatherings, outdoor activities, etc. We’re all looking forward to getting back to “normal,” but let’s not let down our guard. Even if you have been fully vaccinated, remember to wash your hands often, continue to practice social distancing as much as possible and wear a mask when interacting with those outside your home.
