experience and those new services or programs which they would like to see developed
in  their  communities.  This  information  will  be  used  by  the  Office  for  the  Aging  in  their
planning for 2022 as well as to inform the Age-Friendly Allegany County three (3) year
action plan for improved livability for residents of all ages and ability levels.  
The Town Hall meetings include a lunch provided by the Office for the Aging as well as a
chance for all attendees to win a door prize! RSVP is required and can be made to the

Members of the Canyon Pilots Association and Canyon Country Ultraight Club serve up eggs, pancakes and ham during the Memorial Day Weekend Sunday breakfast in May.

The Canyon Pilots Association Labor Day Weekend All-You-Can-Eat Fly-In Breakfast will be from 8 a.m. to noon this Sunday, Sept. 5 at the Wellsboro Johnston Airport at 112 Runway Road, Wellsboro, PA 16901, rain or shine. This event is open to the public.

All proceeds from the breakfast will be used to support youth interested in aviation. "One way we are doing that is by providing scholarships for students, ages 16 and older who are taking flying lessons with a flight instructor,” said Tom Freeman, Canyon Pilots Association secretary.

The breakfast will be indoors at the corporate hangar at the airport, which is just west of Wellsboro in Delmar Township.

On the menu are ham, eggs, buckwheat pancakes, coffee and orange juice. Requested is a donation of $10 for adults and $5 for children ages 3 to 8 years old. Youngsters 2 and under eat for free.

Pilots in various types of aircraft will fly to the airport for the breakfast, weather permitting. The public is welcome to watch them land and take off and talk to pilots about their "flying machines." In addition, fixed wing airplane rides and maybe helicopter rides too will be available for a fee, weather permitting.

Members of the Canyon Country Ultralight Club will assist with the breakfast and have a display of ultralight aircraft.

The Mountain Modelaires will display radio-controlled model aircraft and, as long as supplies last, will give away free foam gliders to eight to twelve year olds to assemble at home. In addition, there will also be a free prize drawing.

For more information about the breakfast or flight instruction scholarships for youth, 16 and older, email Freeman at

Abbie Pritchard Announces Retirement from First Citizens Community Bank After 32 Years

MANSFIELD, PA (September 2021) After 32 years of service, Abbie Pritchard announced her plans to retire from First Citizens Community Bank (FCCB). Her last day will be Friday, September 10, 2021.

She started her career at First Citizens as a temporary secretary in the Bank’s Ulysses office.  In 1999 she was promoted to Branch Manager of the Genesee office and proceeded to build an effective network of business and customer connections in Wellsville, NY.  This resulted in the construction of a new branch office in Wellsville where Pritchard became manager.  In May 2020, she was promoted to Vice President, Market Leader of the Bank’s Western PA/NY market that included their Wellsville, Genesee, and Ulysses offices. Pritchard has been responsible for the financial performance of the branches in that market, which involves business acquisition, customer satisfaction and retention, and staff development.

Upon retirement, Pritchard plans to continue spending time volunteering in her community. She previously served as the President of the Board of Directors for the Allegany County United way for eight years. She is the secretary of the Allegany County SPCA, and is well-known for her love of animals. Over the years, she has also spent time teaching students in matters related to banking and effective interviewing.  She also spent time as an Adjunct Professor at Alfred State College where she taught a Money and Banking course. Additionally, for several years Pritchard served as a judge for DECA (Distributive Education Clubs of America) at Wellsville High School and for their regional competition in Olean, NY.

“For over three decades, Abbie as always believed in the communities she’s helped build in Western Pennsylvania and New York,” commented Jeff Carr, the Bank’s Chief Retail Banking Officer. “We’re very fortunate to have had her on our team and are grateful for her dedication to First Citizens and to growing the community. We wish her a long and happy retirement!”

First Citizens Community Bank is headquartered in Mansfield, Pennsylvania. They currently operate 30 offices throughout Tioga, Bradford, Potter, Clinton, Centre, Union, Lebanon, Lancaster, Schuylkill and Berks counties in Pennsylvania, Allegany County, New York, and New Castle and Kent Counties in Delaware.

Increase in Number of Positive COVID-19 Cases in Allegany County

There  has  been  a  recent  increase  in  the  number  of  positive  COVID-19  cases  in  Allegany  County.    

Allegany County has gone from a substantial (orange) COVID community transmission rate to a high (red) transmission rate.  

From Wednesday,  August 25, 2021, to Tuesday, August 31, 2021,  Allegany County reported 58 positive COVID cases or a rate of 125.84 positive cases per 100,000 population. 

Allegany County Department of Health (ACDOH)  Public  Health  Director  Tyler  Shaw  reports,  “The  positivity  rate  not  only  effects  the  individual  and possibly their families but also has second and third order effects within our communities for schools, businesses, hospitals, and nursing homes.”
Many  factors  are  possible  causes  to  the  increase  in  positive  cases  including  larger  gatherings  throughout  the summer, travel outside of our state and area, COVID variants, not enough population vaccinated for COVID-19, reopening of events and festivals, as well as more people returning to this County for vacations, to visit family, work and school, and overall a more relaxed attitude about COVID-19.
Allegany County has only 40.9 percent of our total eligible population fully vaccinated according to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) as of August 31, 2021. Increasing the number of County residents who are vaccinated will help to lower the COVID community transmission rate and help to combat future variants.  

For individuals that are vaccinated, there is a decreased risk of being hospitalized.  Getting vaccinated protects others in  your household and  your  community.  Vaccinations are still available; go to,, or call the Allegany County Department of Health at 585-268-9250 for help finding a vaccine.  
According to James Helms, CEO at UR Jones Memorial Hospital, hospitalizations for COVID-19 at Jones have definitely been increasing. “At this point, 26 percent of the current inpatients admitted to our hospital are COVID positive and all but one was unvaccinated,” he said. “We  are  going to double the COVID positive admissions today given the patients we have seen in our emergency room, adding potentially four more.  Please help our staff be available to help you by getting vaccinated.”  
For the nursing staff, providing the care that COVID-19 patients require takes more time than other patients. “Not just because of the level of care, but it also takes time to don and doff the PPE (Personal Protective Equipment) before going into the room to provide that care.”
With the upcoming Labor Day weekend, the Allegany County Department of Health highly recommends that residents  of  the  County  take  precautions.  When  traveling  or  attending  parties  or  other  large  social  gatherings, remember  to  wash  your  hands  and  use  hand  sanitizer  in  addition  to  wearing  a  mask,  especially  when  social distancing cannot be maintained. When attending events or gatherings this weekend, choose those that are outside
and limit time spent with those that are unvaccinated.
These precautions, in combination with getting vaccinated, are the best way to provide layered protection from COVID-19. You can call the Allegany County Department of Health at 585-268-9250 to register for an upcoming vaccination clinic.
Remember, if you are feeling ill or having any symptoms, a test may be necessary in order to collect close contact information.    Please  reach  out  to  your  primary  care  provider,  check  for  testing  sites  by  visiting  this  site:, or contact the Allegany County Department of Health if you do not have a primary care provider.   
 Get Vaccinated!

Coudersport Ambulance 49 Dispatched to East Second Street

At 10:31 AM on Saturday, Coudersport ambulance 49 has been dispatched to East Second Street for a diabetic emergency.


​HARRISBURG, Pa (September 2) – Following heavy rains ushered in by Hurricane Ida earlier this week, the Pennsylvania Fish and Boat Commission (PFBC) reminds boaters to use added caution on and around the water throughout the Labor Day weekend.

“While the heavy rains have passed and the sun may be shining, high and muddy water conditions will remain on many rivers, creeks, and streams for several days and well into the Labor Day holiday weekend," said Laurel Anders, Director of the PFBC Bureau of Boating.  "Even if your local area did not receive large amounts of precipitation, waters downstream of the storm will continue to flow higher than normal and present dangers to boaters.  If there is any question about the safety of your boating trip due to weather, don't go."

Boaters should refrain from entering high, fast-moving, and muddy water that offers low visibility and can prevent operators from seeing submerged obstacles like large rocks, downed tree limbs, and other debris.  Use caution while walking along streambanks, which may remain muddy and slippery, and can lead to falls into fast-moving water.  Keep children away from the streambank during periods of high, fast-moving water.

“If you do plan to go boating this holiday weekend, consider visiting a lake, where the impact of the storm may not be as great,” added Anders.  “Always wear a life jacket.  Unfortunately, there have been seven boating-related fatalities this year, and most of the victims were not wearing life jackets.  We have seen these tragedies happen in even the most favorable of conditions, so boaters should take even stronger precautions around periods of inclement weather, including in the days following a heavy rain."

According to PFBC boating accident reports, roughly 80% of all boating fatalities occur annually because boaters were not wearing life jackets.

Throughout the year, boaters who are considering heading out onto the water should familiarize themselves with the waterway in advance.  Map out your trip and create a float plan that includes several places you can stop along the way for a break, check the local forecast, and if needed, ride out a passing storm.  Heavy winds and fast currents can make paddling more difficult when you are trying to get yourself off the water.  Boaters can add an extra layer of protection by investing in a portable NOAA weather radio.  The Atlantic hurricane season runs from June 1 through November 30.

To learn more about boating in Pennsylvania , including complete rules and regulations, registration and title information, how to find great places to boat near you, how file a boating accident report, and answers to other frequently asked questions (FAQs), visit the Boating Basics page on the PFBC website.

While 2021-22 antlerless deer licenses are sold out in many of the state’s Wildlife Management Units (WMUs), licenses figure to remain available in at least a half-dozen WMUs by Monday, Sept. 13 – the date when over-the-counter antlerless license sales begin statewide.

Hunters looking to pick up additional antlerless licenses at that time need to know a couple things:

First, over-the-counter antlerless license sales are handled only by county treasurers, and county treasurers’ offices in some counties presently are closed to the public, so there will be no option to purchase licenses in-person in these counties.

And second, while this round of antlerless license application continues to be called the “over-the-counter sales” round, applications during this round now are accepted by mail, as well.

Those mailing in applications in the round to begin Sept. 13 follow a procedure that’s similar to earlier mail-in rounds. License applications for any WMU may be sent in an official pink envelope to any participating county treasurer, a list of which is found on Page 29 of the 2021-22 Pennsylvania Hunting & Trapping Digest.

What’s different is a hunter can make multiple applications during this round, and may mail up to three applications in the same envelope.

Here’s how it works. Each hunter now may hold up to six active antlerless licenses at a time. So hunters who applied for and received a license in each the initial round of sales, and the first and second “unsold license” rounds, will have three when over-the-counter sales begin. That’s the most any hunter can have before Sept. 13. Those hunters can purchase three more on or after Sept. 13 to reach their personal limit. Then, as they harvest deer and report the harvests through HuntFishPA, they can purchase additional licenses (if licenses remain available) to get back to their personal limit of six.

Hunters who received fewer than three antlerless licenses during the initial mail-in rounds can purchase more than three when over-the-counter sales begin. A hunter who has yet to obtain an antlerless license, for instance, can purchase six beginning Sept. 13. Just understand that licenses only are available for certain WMUs – the ones that haven’t yet sold out the total number allocated by the Game Commission.

To check the availability of antlerless licenses, go online to, or click on the Antlerless Deer Licenses link on the homepage at From there, find the Antlerless Application Availability link on the right-hand side of the page to access the remaining numbers.

Hunters considering purchasing antlerless deer licenses in-person during the over-the-counter sales round are urged to check ahead of time to make sure a county treasurer’s office is open to the public.

Those making application by mail might need to pick up additional official pink envelopes from a license-issuing agent. Blank applications are available on the Antlerless Deer Licenses page at or in the Hunting & Trapping Digest.
