Etters a mostly rural area in York County, is across the Susquehanna River from Harrisburg, the Pennsylvania State Capital.  As early as 1838 a post office was established at Henry Etter's tavern.  Henry Etter became the first post master.  It is believed this is where the post office, located in Goldsboro, got its name.  (Information from Goldsboro post office documents.)

A bit behind from vacation... 

The over two inches of rain Friday night here was really needed as grass and flowers were suffering. Now looks like a nice week coming up, likely dry for the first part, and even the second part right now not over 50% chance. Let's enjoy the sun!
