Penn State DuBois Occupational Therapy Club donates to first responders

Members of the Penn State DuBois OT Club assembled selfcare items into gift baskets that were delivered to first responders.

DuBOIS, Pa – Members of the Penn State DuBois Occupational Therapy (OT) Club closed out their semester with a project aimed at supporting their community first responders. They assembled selfcare items into gift baskets that were delivered to DuSan Ambulance Station 43, and Brady Township Fire, Rescue, and Ambulance station 30.

Following quarantine guidelines, students collected items on campus including mini hand sanitizers, pocket packs of tissues, disposable gloves, non-perishable snacks, and Sheetz gift cards. They also personally donated items to the cause. 

“The students wanted to show their appreciation to first responders during the COVID-19 pandemic and all of the hard work they do,” said Director of the Penn State DuBois Occupational Therapy Assistant (OTA) program LuAnn Demi. She explained that club officer Shane Ponzi serves as a first responder and wanted to give back. 

Demi explained, “Shane just completed his sophomore year as an OTA student and is a volunteer firefighter and EMS personnel studying to be an Emergency Medical Technician.”

Ponzi said, “When the club was discussing possible community service projects, I automatically thought about the first responders.  Not only because I’m a volunteer and take service very seriously, but because I’ve always thought of first responders as unseen hero’s and very special people because when everyone else is running away from danger, they are giving up everything in that moment of their lives to run into the danger.  We want to let them know their service is highly valued.”

Demi added, “Advising the OT Club is rewarding because I truly just stand back and witness students making mature, thoughtful decisions about how to work together and make a difference. The planning, teamwork, and value of others that students show in their OT Club experiences directly relate to educational concepts that are learned and practiced in the OTA Program.” 

All members of the OT Club are enrolled in the Penn State DuBois OTA degree program. Graduates of the program will continue to serve their community members by offering educational programs and therapy that will help people to stay safe in their home and to recover from injuries.   Career Opportunities for graduates include working in public and private schools, early intervention programs, general, psychiatric, and pediatric hospitals, day treatment centers, hospices and home health agencies, rehabilitation hospitals and centers, and more.  For more information on the Penn State DuBois Occupational Therapy Assistant program visit

Received Upgrades Thanks to Grant
Saturday, May 15, 2021

The Barbara Moscato Brown Memorial Library has been quietly making some upgrades in recent months thanks to a generous grant from The George A. and Margaret Mee Charitable Foundation.

In addition to funding the recent upgrade to the library’s website, this grant has allowed the library to update and upgrade several other things.
Inside the library, new shelves have been added to the Children’s and Adult Fiction sections, with an upgrade to one thanks to an additional donation by the Cameron County High School Class of 1952.

Also inside, the grant funded a new copy center that now provides a faxing station for library patrons. Faxes cost $2 for one page and an additional $1 for each subsequent page. There is no charge for the cover sheet.
The exterior of the library building received some repairs to the roof and will soon be getting a fresh coat of paint, both also thanks to the The George A. and Margaret Mee Charitable Foundation grant.

The Barbara Moscato Brown Memorial Library board and staff extend their gratitude to the Foundation, and the local community for their generosity and continued support.

Sean Minnick is giving a free presentation about purple martins and bluebirds outdoors at the Nessmuk Recreation Area.

At 1 p.m. this Saturday, May 15, Sean Minnick, a member of the Tiadaghton Audubon Society, will present a free informal program for the public about two different cavity-nesting bird species, the bluebird and the purple martin and how people can help. 

The program will be about an hour and be held in the boat launch area on Lake Nessmuk near the base of the new purple martin gourd colony. The lake is at the Nessmuk Recreation Area on Route 287, one mile south of Wellsboro. In case of rain, the program will be presented at the roofed pavilion.

During the program, Tiadaghton Audubon Society (TAS) members will install gourd housing for purple martins and put up six bluebird nesting boxes near Lake Nessmuk. Minnick will be available to answer people's questions. 

As a result of his participation in the DCNR Bluebird Monitoring Program at nearby Hills Creek State Park, Minnick attended the Cavity Nest Program sponsored by DCNR at the Tom Ridge Environmental Center in Erie. That program fueled his passion to bring purple martins back to Tioga County. Nessmuk was chosen as the site for a gourd housing colony because purple martins had been seen there in the past - but rarely. 

Minnick rallied the support of TAS members to help with the project, secured a $1,000 grant, worked with Pete Herres of Wellsboro Parks and Recreation to get permission from the Wellsboro Borough Council to install the post base for the gourd colony on their property as well as from the Fish and Boat Commission. 

Saturday's program and the installation of a nesting colony for purple martins and additional nesting boxes for bluebirds marks the first step in this Bird Town project. "This will be a rain or shine event because the installation of the gourd colony has to happen this weekend in time to hopefully attract first year purple martins that are looking for housing," said Minnick.

Wellsboro is designated as an Audubon Bird Town community. Through this working partnership, Audubon Pennsylvania and municipalities like Wellsboro are helping to promote conservation and community-based actions to create a healthy, more sustainable environment for birds and people. 

Lake Nessmuk is owned by the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania and managed by the Fish and Boat Commission for public fishing and boating. The Nessmuk Recreation Area property is owned by the Commonwealth and maintained by the Borough of Wellsboro through the Wellsboro Parks and Recreation Department.


The Laurel Festival 10K (6.21 miles) will start at 9 a.m. on Saturday, June 19 at Packer Park on Queen Street in Wellsboro. The two-mile Fun Run/Walk will start at 9:05 a.m.

Those who pre-register for the 10K on or before Monday, May 31 and pay the $25 entry fee will receive a free event T-shirt, courtesy of First Citizens Community Bank. They will also be entered in the early bird drawing for a chance to win $25 in Wellsboro Chamber Dollars to spend in more than 60 area businesses. Those who do not pre-register will have the option to purchase a race T-shirt the day of the event.

Age categories in the 10K for males and females are: 19 and under, 20-29, 30-39, 40-49, 50-59, and 60 and over. The course is challenging with both paved and dirt surfaces and rolling hills that provide views of Pennsylvania Grand Canyon country scenery.

UPMC Wellsboro is sponsoring the 10K and Fun Run/Walk awards. For the 10K race, large, medium and small medals with ribbons imprinted with "2021 Laurel Festival 10K Footrace" will be awarded. Large medals will be presented to the first place overall male and female finishers; medium medals to the second and third place overall male and female finishers; and small medals to the oldest and to the youngest to cross the finish line first. The first, second and third place finishers in each 10K age category will also receive medals.

Each Fun Run participant will receive a commemorative ribbon; the first, second and third place runners and overall youngest runner to cross the finish line in the Fun Run will each receive a small medal with a ribbon imprinted with "2021 Laurel Festival Fun Run."

The entry fee for the 10K is $25 and for the two-mile Fun Run/Walk is $5. Packet pick-up and registration for both the 10K and Fun Run will be from 7:45 a.m. to 8:45 a.m. on race day in Packer Park. Those who register that day must pay the entry fee in cash or by check. Prior to race day, registrants can pay the entry fee with Visa or MasterCard.

Insta-Results will provide timing for the race and the Tioga County Amateur Radio Club will handle communications.

C&N and Weis Markets are providing free post-race refreshments to all runners.

For course maps and registration forms for the 10K and Fun Run, contact the Wellsboro Area Chamber of Commerce office by calling 570-724-1926; emailing or stopping in at 114 Main Street, Wellsboro.

Liz McLelland is shown standing in front of her banner at last year's Wellsboro Growers Market.

Mark your calendars. The Wellsboro Growers Market will open for the 2021 season on Thursday, May 20 from 2:30 p.m. to 5:30 p.m. on the front lawn of the First Presbyterian Church at 130 Main Street in Wellsboro, next to the Green Free Library. Customers are asked to wear face masks, maintain six feet of distance between themselves and others, and have fun.

Among those who will be at the May 20 market are Liz McLelland of Yorkshire Meadows, Kathy Siegrist of Bakery 303 and Linda Sweely of New View Farm. "I have a new pound cake that is really cool. I don't have a name for it yet but I hope to by May 20," said Siegrist who is known as the pound cake lady. 

McLelland is bringing her banner, which reads: "Put on the kettle, make the tea, order your baked goods, right from me" along with an array of goodies, including her lemon, orange and lime curd, carrot cake, eccles cakes, scones, caramel shortbread bars, pecan sandies, assorted cookies and pastries, her new summer fruit preserve, raspberry mango jam, triple berry jam and other British delights. 

Sweely will be offering her artisan breads, herb focaccia, bagels - plain, cinnamon raisin and everything - and Boston cream cupcakes as well as jams and jellies, honey, maple syrup products, homemade sauerkraut, ground horseradish and sprouts.

Growers, bakers, candymakers, maple producers, artisans, craftsmen,  musicians and others who want to participate on May 20 or at an upcoming market are asked to contact Thomas Putnam, event organizer, for more information as soon as possible by calling 570-439-2000.

"We are asking customers who are in the market at the same time to follow COVID-19 safety rules and to be patient," said Putnam. "We did the same last year and it worked well for all involved," he said. 

"Our Growers Market is usually a rain or shine event," Putnam said  "Now, when there are rain showers, we stay outside under the trees. If there is a downpour or constant, heavy rain, the market is canceled. 

 "Our Growers Market is operating under safety guidelines. Vendors and the steering committee are asking all customers to please wear a mask while at the market and to practice physical distancing of at least six feet," said Putnam. "We are under the auspices of the First Presbyterian Church and are asking all customers to comply with the church's coronavirus guidelines of safe practices for all. If there is a downpour or constant, heavy rain, the market will be canceled because we cannot use Fellowship Hall when the weather is bad due to those safety guidelines,”  Putnam said.

The market will be held every Thursday from 2:30 to 5:30 p.m. through October 14, weather permitting. For updates on who and what will be at the market, email or visit the Wellsboro Growers Market Facebook page.

PennDOT Implementing Detour for Route 146 Bridge Replacement

Smethport, PA – The Pennsylvania Department of Transportation (PennDOT) is alerting motorists that a bridge replacement project along Route 146 in McKean County will start Monday, May 17. The project will replace a bridge spanning Red Mill Brook approximately three miles east of Clermont in Norwich Township, which will allow PennDOT to remove it from their list of McKean County bridges in poor condition. 

Work on this project will be done in accordance with Centers for Disease Control and state Department of Health guidance as well as a project-specific COVID-19 safety plan, which will include protocols for social distancing, use of face coverings, personal and job site cleaning protocols, management of entries to the job site and relevant training.

Starting Monday, the contractor will close the bridge and implement an approximately 27-mile detour using Route 46 and Route 6. 

The bridge was built in 1934. It is 28-feet long and carries an average of fewer than 150 vehicles daily. 

The overall project consists of replacing the bridge, approach paving, guide rail installation, pavement marking and miscellaneous construction. PennDOT expects to complete the project in early October. All work is weather and schedule dependent. 

Shingledecker's Welding Inc. of Franklin PA is the contractor on this $870,000 project. PennDOT reminds motorists to move through work zones with caution, obey posted speed limits, and always buckle up.

Kristine Smith Announces Her Candidacy For Genesee Township Supervisor

I am asking Genesee Township registered Republicans to vote for Kristine Smith on both the six (6) and two (2) year terms for Genesee Township Supervisor in the Primary Election on May 18th.

Votes for Kristine Smith will be votes for a candidate with Genesee township experience, commitment, and integrity.  

Throughout my years of service to our township as Secretary/Treasurer, I have maintained a commitment to running a professional, transparent, accountable, and helpful township office.

I am experienced with municipal language, law, codes, and requirements. I am aware of our township's ordinances, resolutions, policies, procedures, and financial history. This knowledge gave me the qualifications to be appointed Township Supervisor in November 2020 and to be able to immediately fill in when the need arose as Secretary/Treasurer in December 2020.

I have deep roots in Genesee and I take great pride to be raising the fifth generation in my family to walk our land.  I have spent many years volunteering throughout our community, giving back to the Fire Department by helping for several years with the Haunted House fundraiser for their new building, helping with the Genesee Community Days Committee and with the Community Halloween Party.  I continue to serve on the Genesee Area Library Board and help the Genesee Water Authority. 

My integrity to do the right thing for our community will always remain and I vow to put the benefit of the town above personal benefit.  My goals as Township Supervisor are to maintain the beautiful place we all call home, support the local entities that provide so many volunteer services to our town, and maintain a transparent limited government. I am asking for your votes on May 18th for Kristine Smith for the six (6) and two (2) year terms for Genesee Township Supervisor.
