On June 11, 2001, this little bit of a borough will celebrate its 100th year as an incorporated community. Yet residents here have no intention of waiting until then to start celebrating. This year, and on every anniversary date until the main event, the borough plans to throw itself a party. Saturday is the first of the annual bashes. The party planners - Chalfont's own "Who's Who" - have purposely kept the festivities from becoming a full- scale gala. In the morning, a children's run and a five-kilometer race/walk are planned; in the evening, a concert.

The uninvited guest showed up Thursday afternoon with a bang, popping a child's ball in the backyard and then breaking a red bird feeder. Evesham had a bear. "We've been getting reports since last night about sightings . . . basically just walking around, hasn't been aggressive," Capt. Walt Miller, a spokesman for the Evesham Police Department, said Friday. Still, the sight of a large black bear - one resident estimated its weight at 400 pounds - had the neighbors talking. The bear "tossed trash cans around, had a nice lunch" Friday, said Russ Mogell, who for two years has lived in the Sanctuary development, tucked away in the woods.

BOY, remember that long early spring where it seemed the cool, dreary weather would never change? What wonderful times, huh? When it did start warming up, V for Veg urged you get out and explore your environs - specifically, to find animal-free offerings just outside Philly. I shared some and asked you to send your suggestions of spots I might not know about. And you did! Now that it's plenty hot, you may not feel like jumping in the car for a trip, but come on, put on those flip-flops and pile in-we're gonna get ice cream!

If you can make it past the pizza counter at FrancoLuigi's without succumbing to at least one slice (I had two, pork and broccoli), you reach the door of the High Note Cafe, where chef Franco Borda is finishing a salad of shell-like pasta, beans, and vegetables. I'm not at 13th and Tasker Streets to eat, although sojourns into traditional South Philadelphia at Christmas transport me to another Italian neighborhood, one my grandfather helped create at the turn of the 20th century, when he left his farm in the mountains of Benevento to seek his fortune in America.

CAPE MAY - Over the last 135 years, everyone who has summered at the Chalfonte Hotel has lived somewhere else the rest of the year. But in their heart of hearts, many of them likely have called the three-story wooden wedding cake on Howard Street their true home. Because this hotel of "heroes, heartaches, legends, love affairs, and unforgettable characters," is a magical place where people find their soul . . . or soul mate, says Karen Fox, author of a new book about the storied hotel.

John Curry didn't want any proclamations or presentations. And he made it clear he wasn't going to sit still for any speeches. He said he'd put up with his retirement celebration if the emphasis was on celebration, not retirement. He wanted a party. So he showed up at the Plumbers Union Hall a good hour early on Friday night and wheeled himself to a table at the far side of the room. For the next four hours, he was mobbed by hulking men from the Great Northeast who credited him with keeping them off the streets.
