Tony Balon shares his expertise on making maple syrup.

Something for Everyone in the Family

Ridgway, Pa. – Last week, the Big Maple Family Farm in Elk County opened their farm to any family interested in seeing and learning about all the activities that take place on a family farm: making maple syrup, raising chicks and lambs and ducklings, taking care of miniature ponies and donkeys, and growing nutritious food. Youth that attended the ‘Open Farm’ got to listen to Tony Balon explain the science behind making homemade maple syrup. Garret and Logan Balon corralled small lambs so area youth could touch and pet the young lambs. Ray McMinn prepared chicks with food and water so young people could see the small chicks, and how they eat and drink. Ray also made certain the miniature ponies and donkey were in the barn stalls when the Open Farm took place so families could see the larger farm animals. A barn is a special place when lambs ‘baa’, chicks ‘peep’, and the donkey ‘brays’.

Amanda Balon clerked at the Farm Store where families could buy frozen meats, homemade pickles and canned vegetables, BBQ sauce, relishes, and the recently bottled maple syrup. New this year was the addition of ‘microgreens’, just sprouted versions of sunflowers, arugula, peas, radishes, broccoli, mustard,and kohlrabi. More information about microgreens can be found at .

The next public event at Big Maple Family Farm is the always popular Easter Egg Hunt for local youth through the age of 13. The Easter Egg Hunt will start on Saturday, April 9th at 3:30 p.m. The newly started Books in the Barn program for young people age 5-13 will be every Wednesday at 6:45 p.m., and also on the 1 st and 3 rd Sundays of each month from 3:00 p.m. to 4:30 p.m. You must register in advance for Books in the Barn so enough volunteers can be available to help with the farm animals. Register at .

For young people interested in The Adventures of Logan and Donkey, visit , and then subscribe to continue to watch the adventures Logan has with his miniature donkey, called Donkey.

Bridge Replacement Work Begins Monday in Cameron County

Clearfield, PA – The Pennsylvania Department of Transportation (PennDOT) announced today that work to replace a Cameron County bridge begins Monday, March 14. The bridge spans the Driftwood Branch of the Sinnemahoning Creek on Route 4004 in Shippen Township.

PennDOT reminds drivers to use caution in work zones, obey posted speed limits and always buckle up.

Overall work includes demolition of the existing structure, construction of its replacement and approximately 540-feet of roadway reconstruction, drainage improvements, guide rail replacement and miscellaneous construction.

Fundraiser For People of Ukraine

Perhaps you’ve seen these colorful prints appearing in windows in your neighborhood. It’s the work of Olga Snyder, a Ukrainian-born artist who has carved a creative niche for herself in Pennsylvania’s northern tier since immigrating to the United States 24 years ago.

Her signature artwork, ranging from painting, decorative and fiber arts and jewelry to traditional Ukrainian Pysanky, was offered for sale at the popular Olga’s Cafe in in downtown Coudersport until a devastating fire destroyed the business last month.

Both Olga and her husband John say their own tragedy pales in comparison with the
human suffering unfolding in Olga’s homeland. They are offering prints of Olga’s flag design in exchange for donations to be sent to the Ukrainian people. John says, “We want to help ‘people on the ground’ meaning people sheltering in and defending Ukraine, people fleeing Ukraine or their town or city in Ukraine and refugees in Europe.”

A special bank account has been set up to handle the donations and the first funds have already been dispatched to buy food and diapers, immediate needs of those sheltering from war.

Flag prints can be picked up at Olga’s Cafe, Hotel Crittenden, Riley Center and the
Potter County Artisan Center, all in downtown Coudersport, in exchange for a donation. Checks can be made payable to Olga Snyder Saving Ukraine and mailed to Olga’s, 4 East Second Street, Coudersport PA 16915.

Olga will offer Pysanky (Ukrainian Egg Decorating) classes this spring with the proceeds added to the relief efforts. Details will be announced.
