BRADFORD, PA – The Marilyn Horne Museum and Exhibit Center announced it is joining museums nationwide in the Blue Star Museums initiative, a program that provides free admission to currently-serving U.S. military personnel and their families this summer. The 2021 program will begin on Armed Forces Day, Saturday, May 21, 2022, and end on Labor Day, Monday, September 5, 2022. Find the list of participating museums at

Blue Star Museums is a partnership between the National Endowment for the Arts and Blue Star Families, in collaboration with the Department of Defense and museums across America. Because the museum already offers free admission to everyone, the museum is giving special discounts in the museum shop and museum café. Active duty military personnel and their families will receive a 10% discount on purchases in the museum shop, and a 20% discount on purchases in the museum café.

“Growing up in a military family, I understand the importance of recognizing active duty military personnel and their families,” said Matthew Hileman director of the Marilyn Horne Museum and Exhibit Center. “My father and brother were both service members, and my mother was an active volunteer in many base organizations as well as the USO welcome center at the St. Louis airport in the 1990s. When I learned about this program, I jumped at the chance to be a part of it.”

Retaining Wall Project on Route 414 in Morris Township, Tioga County Begins Next Week

​Montoursville, PA – Motorists who travel Route 414 in Morris Township, Tioga County are advised a retaining wall project continues in Morris Township, Tioga County. The project is located at the intersection of Wilson Hill Road and continues north for .58 miles towards Morris, Tioga County.

In April, Route 414 was closed between Wilson Hill Road and Dixie Run Road in Morris Township, Tioga County, while the contractor LLT, Trucking, LLC, began work on retaining walls and roadway reconstruction, due to embankment failures between Babbs Creek and Route 414.
A detour using Wilson Hill Road, Route 4002 (Oregon Hill Road), English Run Road and Route 287 in Tioga and Lycoming Counties will be in place until mid-November, weather permitting.

Motorists should be alert and drive with caution in the area.

LLT Trucking, LLC., is the primary contractor for this $4,900,000, three-year project, which is expected to be completed in September 2022.

Grant Gehman, 73, Lawrenceville, PA

Grant Gehman

Grant Gehman residing in Lawrenceville, PA went home to be with the Lord on May 17,2022 at his home.  

Born November 28th 1948, Grant was 73 years old when he passed.  

Grant is survived by his wife of 53 years, MaryLou Gehman of Lawrenceville, 4 sons,  Matt Gehman and his wife Melissa of Buffalo, NY, Benn Gehman and his wife Mandy of Tyronza, AR, Jason Gehman and his wife Kate of Wellsboro, PA, and Josh Gehman and his wife Sarah of Lawrenceville, PA; 22 grandchildren, brothers Henry Gehman, Ernie Gehman; sisters, Shirley Keller, Marie Clemens, Ada Gehman-Jackson,  Elaine Anders. In addition to his parents, Warren and Irma Gehman, 

Grant was preceded in death by his sister, Hulda, and his brother, Earl Gehman.    

Grant grew up outside of Souderton, PA in the town of Morwood where he attended Souderton HS and enjoyed Cross Country Track, Baseball and Wrestling.   When he wasn’t playing sports Grant was working in the family butcher shop and involved in his church.  It was at a Layman’s Crusade for Christ at Souderton High School that God got a hold of Grant and he gave his life to him.  He met MaryLou at a Church youth group bowling party.  

After Grant and MaryLou got married they moved to Colorado for 2 years where Grant attended community college.  With their first child on the way, being away from family was too much for them, so they decided to move back to PA. 

Having worked for Smith Bros Ornamental Iron for several years, they took a vacation in the Wellsboro area and decided to try to start a business in Knoxville .  Grant opened Gehman Ornamental Iron in 1976 and has worked in the steel fabrication business for almost 50 years.   Much of his work and influence can still be seen up and down the valley.  

He also was very active in the churches they attended, leader of Christian Boys Brigade, volunteered at Camp Hickory Hill as an aviation instructor, and in their community as a Knoxville Boro council member.  

Grant enjoyed construction and the process of taking a concept through to completion.  He was an avid hiker, aviator, fisherman, inventor, and served on several boards including Family Life Ministries and C&N Bank.  He would tell you today that none of that compares to knowing his Lord and Savior Jesus Christ, and spending time with his family and friends.  

Calling hours will be held Friday, June 3, from 12:00 -2:00 pm at Victory Highway Wesleyan Church with a Celebration of Life to follow at 2:00 pm.  Victory Highway Church is located at 150 Victory Highway, Painted Post, NY 14870.  

In lieu of flowers, the family requests that memorial contributions  be made in his name to either Victory Highway Wesleyan Church at the above address, or Camp Hickory Hill, 2970 Kohler Rd, Varysburg, NY 14167.

Elk County Council on the Arts Summer Theater Camp: Junie B. Jones, JR.

Under the direction of Mr. Adam Brooks, the Elk County Council on the Arts Summer Theater Camp will present Junie B. Jones The Musical JR., a 60-minute student version of the witty and charming show featuring a book and lyrics by Marcy Heisler and music by Zina Goldrich, which was adapted from the Junie B. Jones series of best-selling books by Barbara Park. The public performance will be held on Friday, June 17, 2022, 7PM, at the St. Marys Area High School Carpin Auditorium.

It's Junie B.'s first day of first grade, and a lot of things have changed for her: Junie's friend, Lucille, doesn't want to be her best pal anymore and, on the bus, Junie B. makes friends with Herb, the new kid at school. Also, Junie has trouble reading the blackboard and her teacher, Mr. Scary, thinks she may need glasses. Throw in a friendly cafeteria lady, a kickball tournament and a Top-Secret Personal Beeswax Journal, and first grade has never been more exciting.

Summer Theater Camp is a weeklong experience for youth entering grade 3 in the fall of 2022, through this spring’s graduating seniors. Camp will be held Monday, June 13 through Friday, June 17 at the St. Marys Area High School.

Students interested in participating in Summer Theater Camp should register before end of day Friday, June 3. A limited number of merit-based scholarships are available on a first-come-first-served basis.

The public is welcome to join us for the performance of Junie B. Jones The Musical JR. on Friday, June 17 at 7PM at the St. Marys Area High School Carpin Auditorium. Doors open at 6:30PM. Admission is free. Donations at the door are appreciated but not required.
