The 51st annual St. Paul’s antique show and sale is coming. Home Page had the chance to speak with Reverend Canon Gregory P. Hinton of St. Paul’s Episcopal Church and local antique dealer Marge Wetherbee about the show.

There will be 13 dealers with various items for sale. Both guests agreed that the event is very much like a family reunion each year, with many long-time dealers and customers returning and reuniting. “The ladies and gentlemen from the church are very nice.” stated Wetherbee. “We’re treated quite well.”

The dealers are served a homemade ham dinner on Friday night. Volunteers help to set up and tear down for the dealers. There is also a raffle, featuring prizes like a beautiful handmade quilt, basket, small table and more. Lunch is also available at a minimal cost. The show will be held Saturday, October 4 from 10:00am-3:30pm. There is an admission fee of $3. (Discount cards can be found at Etc. Antique Station in Wellsboro.)



On Wednesday, Home Page met Orpha Lundgren, a Wellsboro resident celebrating her 100th birthday. She has always served and cared for those who have surrounded her. She was born on October 1, 1914 in Welch Settlement. Orpha later married her high school sweet heart, John Lundgren. She went on to have three sons, grandchildren, great grandchildren and now a great great grandchild. She also received her nursing degree and worked at the Soldiers and Sailors Hospital here in Wellsboro from 1939 until 1977.

When asked if she had any advice from her 100 years of life experience, Orpha encouraged us to spend more time with our families. “The most important thing in my life was my family,” she said. “Children need that.”



Today’s feature story is good news for Tioga County residents who are, (or who have loved ones), fighting cancer. Susquehanna Health opened their brand new cancer center at Soldiers & Sailors Memorial Hospital this week.

In recent years Tioga County has demonstrated an increased need for access to cancer care. Given the complexity of cancer treatments and the many procedures required with some patients, Tioga County residents have had to travel significant distances to receive care. But now, this new state-of-the-art facility will provide comprehensive cancer care right here in Tioga County, including support services to better treat the full spectrum of patient needs.
