First Friday and More!

Head to Wellsboro to participate in a weekend of activities!

 

by Joshua Allen - October 3, 2019

Watch today’s broadcast to see what specials some of the stores in Wellsboro are doing for this year’s last First Friday on Oct. 4, but that’s not all. Plenty more is happening this exciting Autumn weekend in Wellsboro.

This Saturday, Oct. 5, Rich Hanlon is leading a Creek and Canyon Wildlife Tour at the Leonard Harrison State Park Overlook, which is 12.2 miles from downtown Wellsboro via Route 660 west. Participants will gather at 9:30 a.m. at the handicapped accessible overlook to see eagles, hawks, crows, ravens and vultures cruising over Pine Creek and the Pennsylvania Grand Canyon. Hanlon is an outdoor enthusiast, member of the Tiadaghton Audubon Society, pastor of the United Methodist Church of Wellsboro and founder of the BestLife Community blog.

Also, this Saturday, Oct. 5. Jerry Gaye’s sixth annual benefit will raise money for the Heading Home Center in Middlebury Township operated by Second Chance Animal Sanctuaries, Inc., a volunteer-based organization founded in 2001 in Tioga County. The benefit will be hosted at the Howard S. Lines Knoxville VFW Post 6753 on 703 Boatman Road, Knoxville, Pa. 16928 and will also include a Chinese auction.

For more information about the benefit and the Chinese Auction, call the Knoxville VFW at 814-326-4321 or stop in at Blend’s Feed and Farm Supply at 7788 PA-49, Osceola, PA 16942 or call 1-607-382-5448. Items for the Chinese auction can be dropped off at the Knoxville VFW or Blend’s.

Additionally, Saturday, Oct. 5 from 1 PM. to 5 PM, the first Home Brewers Expo will be held in the Gallery at the Warehouse Theatre, 3 Central Avenue in Wellsboro. All proceeds will support Asa’s Place. 

Adults, 21 and over are invited to meet the brewers, sample the area’s finest home brewed beers and for $10 cast a vote for their favorite. Bring identification. For more information about participating as a home brewer at the expo, contact Weller at brookeweller7@gmail.com. For tickets, call 570-724-6220 or visit www.deanecenter.com.

The Hamilton-Gibson Autumn Chorale concert is this Saturday Oct. 6, at 2:30 at St. Paul’s Episcopal Church. The concert will kick off the choirs’ annual poinsettia sale. The poinsettias are red and come in two sizes, a six-inch pot for $15 and a seven-inch pot for $20. The sale will end on Friday, Nov. 22 and the poinsettias will be delivered on Wednesday, Dec. 4.

Audience members can pick up a poinsettia order form this Sunday, Oct. 6 when purchasing concert tickets at St. Paul’s, or people can place an order by calling the Hamilton-Gibson office at 570-724-2079 or sending an email to hamgib@gmail.com, attention Tara Gordon. The person ordering is asked to provide his or her name, phone number and email address and send a check with “Poinsettia” on the check memo line for the total amount of the order to the Hamilton-Gibson Children and Youth Choirs, 29 Water Street, Wellsboro, PA 16901.

Proceeds will go toward offsetting costs for the choirs’ annual four-day spring performance trip Thursday through Sunday, April 30 through May 3, 2020.
Families whose children are considering joining the choirs will be admitted to this concert free. For more information about the concert or joining the choral program, call the Hamilton-Gibson Children and Youth Choirs at 570-724-2079 or email hamgib@gmail.com.
