March Events Newscast!

There's much to do this month in Tioga County, PA!

 

by Home Page Staff - March 6, 2015

Grab your calendar and spend a few moments with us as we get ready for what’s coming next in our community!

The next big game for the Wellsboro Hornets Varsity Boys Basketball team is coming up this weekend. The Hornets lost to Loyalsock 54-35 this past Saturday, but because they finished second in Class AA of District IV, they move on to Pottsville, PA where they will face Mahanoy Area at Martz Hall. For those of you traveling to the game, a few reminders to get everyone back home safely. It’s going to take you about 2 and a half hours to get to Pottsville from Wellsboro. Give yourself plenty of time to get there so you don’t have to rush. Be alert and drive safely. Remember, no texting while driving – not even for a second! At 55 miles per hour you will travel blind for 80.67 feet in just one second with your eyes off the road. Anything can happen. Drive the speed limit and don’t get so caught up in car conversations that you become a distracted driver. Let’s get everyone back home safely.

Fiddler on the Roof is now being presented at the Wellsboro High School. Tonight’s performance will begin at 7:30. There will also be showings this Saturday, March 7th at 2:00 PM (not 2:30 PM as previously stated) and then again at 7:30. All showings will be held in the high school auditorium. The 33 cast members, 15 orchestra players and 12 Ensemble Cast Members, stage crew and construction set workers, backstage lighting, sound crew and choreography designers have been working for months to prepare an excellent production. The professional costumes also help set the stage in bringing the Tevye’s stories to life. We hope you will be able to catch one of these fabulous shows.

The Endless Mountain Music Festival’s Winter Jazz Fest is this weekend, March 6-8, here in Wellsboro. There will be Friday and Saturday evening concerts, a Saturday morning jazz workshop and then later that evening a wonderful dinner with a performance to follow. Sunday brunch will include live music by a jazz artist. The Oswego Jazz Project concert is tonight, March 6, beginning at 7:30 PM at the Deane Center’s Coolidge Theatre, 104 Main Street. Don’t miss it!

Then on March 13th Simple Gifts will be performing at the Deane Center Coolidge Theatre at 7:30 PM. Simple Gifts combines the talents of Linda Littleton and Karen Hirshon. If you enjoyed the Natalie MacMaster and Donnell Leahy concert in February, you will be interested to know that Simple Gifts has toured with them in the past. Simple Gifts is frequently complimented on their stage presence, which is warm, personal, and accented with humor.” (Source: simplegiftsmusic.com)

Rep. Matt Baker joined his colleagues in the state House in unanimously passing legislation designating the week of March 15th through the 22nd as Maple Producers Week in Pennsylvania. The resolution was authored by Baker’s Potter County neighbor, Rep. Martin Causer. Baker said Pennsylvania ranks fifth in the nation in maple syrup production, and according to the U.S. Department of Agriculture, last year the Commonwealth produced 146,000 gallons of syrup with a production value of more than $4.7 million. The Potter-Tioga Maple Syrup Producers Association will hold its 11th Annual Maple Weekend on March 21-22 from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. For more information about activities and participating producers, visit pamaple.com/MapleWeekend.htm. Marsha Chesko will have more details on this event included in her broadcast coming up on March 18th right here on Wellsboro Home Page.

There is a very special and important event coming up on March 14th that gives each of us the opportunity make a difference in our community. We want to encourage our Wellsboro Home Page viewers to participate in the 4th Annual Casey L. Patrick Memorial Basketball Game. The event comes to the Wellsboro High School Gymnasium on Saturday, March 14th at 5:30 PM. Come see the members of the 2014-15 boys and girls basketball teams take on the faculty at this 4th annual Casey L. Patrick memorial basketball game. The game starts at 7 o’clock in the high school gymnasium. The price is $3.50 a person, with children under 5 free. All proceeds go to the Casey L. Patrick memorial scholarship fund and the boys and girls basketball teams. Along with the game there will be a 50/50 foul shot challenge, a silent auction and a bake sale. We hope to see you all there!

The Hamilton Gibson Children’s chorus will perform Children of Eden, a two-act musical play with music and lyrics by Stephen Schwartzand. The musical is based on the Book of Genesis. It all takes place Thursday, March 19th through Sunday, March 22nd in the Steadman Theater at Mansfield University. For more information please call 570-724-2079.

Ed Wise and His New Orleans Jazz Band with perform at the Wellsboro Area High School Auditorium on Wednesday, March 25th at 7:30 PM.

And finally a PET SAFETY REMINDER. The abundance of ice on sidewalks, driveways, walkways, and roads means that a significant amount of rock salt, cinder’s, and wood ash have gone out on these slick areas in the past few days. We intuitively recognize the dangers of slipping on the ice and shudder at the thought of dislocating a shoulder, spraining a wrist, or even worse, breaking some bones from a nasty fall. As a result of this ice accumulation, many of us have liberally spread one of these deicing materials around our homes and businesses. But it’s important to remember that these substances can be dangerous to our pets and farm animals. Our cats, dogs, and chickens may come in contact with these materials every time they venture outdoors. Below is a list of some of the more commonly used deicing materials and the danger’s they might pose to pets, livestock, and young children. If your pets do come in contact with these deicing agents, especially rock salt formulations, wash their paws before they have a chance to lick them clean. For a list of pet-friendly deicing products search the internet for ‘pet friendly deicing products’ or ask your local feed store or veterinarian for assistance.
