Nearly 10,000 Attend 2017 Annual Woodsmen Show At Cherry Springs State Park

By Henry Lush

The Galeton Rotary Club's major annual fundraiser, The Annual Woodsmen's Show was held last weekend, August 4-5-6.

This was the 66th annual show. Over the past 66 years the profits generated by this event has benefited Galeton and Potter county in many ways. Several hundreds of thousands of dollars have been contributed to scholarships, many school projects such as the building of the high school tennis courts, the outdoor basketball court, new school sidewalks, band uniforms, refurbishing the community building, the new library, the Collins Memorial Park, plus many other worthwhile activities throughout the area.

The Woodsmen's Show is the second most popular tourist attraction in Potter County. The Cherry Springs Dark Skies program generates the most tourist inquiries. This year nearly 10,000 attended the 3 day show. This, of course, is a boost to the local economy. The various competitions are noted nationally and the winners were all announced in the press.

Plans will start soon to prepare for the 67th show. Galeton Rotary is planning to make the show even bigger and better. This is an amazing undertaking for a club the size of Galeton Rotary with a membership of 18. It really takes a lot of effort by many dedicated members.
