A SUMMER OF MUSIC
Are you looking for a fun, educational camp experience for your children this summer? Mansfield University is offering a variety of camps right here in Tioga County. These camps are not thousands of dollars per week, or hours away—they are right here in our own backyard. Among the many opportunities available, Mansfield is offering a wide array of music camps.

Beginning June 28th, Mansfield is hosting Percussion Camp, Saxophone Camp, Flute Camp, Oboe and Bassoon Camp, and Clarinet Camp. High School Music Camp begins on July 5th, Brass Band Camp on July 12th, and Youth Music Camp on July 14th. Campers can choose to stay overnight for the duration of the camp, or to simply commute to each day’s activities from home.

PIETROPOLA & KRAMER, ATHLETES OF THE YEAR
Seniors Michael Pietropola and Emilie Kramer were named Male and Female Athletes of the Year at the Annual Wellsboro Hornets Sports Booster Club Awards Night on Monday, June 1, 2015.

The night started off with Matt Rendos, Athletic Director, and Booster Club Vice President President Mike Pietropola addressing the Wellsboro High School auditorium crowd. Pietropola announced the formation of the brand new Wellsboro Sports Hall of Fame, which will induct its inaugural class at Award Night in 2016.

POISONOUS PLANTS OF PA
Of the more than 3,000 plant species found in Pennsylvania more than 40 can cause serious health problems for grazing livestock and in many instances death. University and government researchers estimate that at least 5% if not more of the reported livestock deaths in the country each year are attributed to ingestion of poisonous plants or plant parts.

Poison hemlock and water hemlock are two highly toxic members of the carrot family often found in wet pastures and along streams and ditches here in the Northeast. Other poisonous plants frequently found in grazing situations are Indian tobacco, white snakeroot, buttercup species, milkweeds, bracken fern, jimsonweed, corn cockle, and Solanaceae species – such as horse nettles and ground cherries…

FIRST FRIDAY OF SUMMER, 2015!
This month’s First Friday theme is World Environment Day – “Earth Day, Every Day!”

The June 5th Wellsboro First Friday has the biggest scavenger hunt prizes ever! You could win a packet of gift cards worth $140, $75, or $60 – and it’s EASY to play.
Simply pick up a scavenger hunt sheet at any of the participating businesses downtown and take a leisurely stroll around Wellsboro. Poke your head into 14 shops, say “hello,” look around a little and look for strings of metallic-colored beads. Write down the color on your sheet and turn it in when completed.
Besides the BIG PRIZE Scavenger Hunt, there will be live music, artists and many kinds of activities for kids and adults all over downtown Wellsboro! There will be a variety of special discounts from retailers as well.

WELLSBORO BACCALAUREATE 2015
On Wednesday, June 3rd, Wellsboro High School held it’s 2015 baccalaureate ceremony for their graduating seniors. Ten of Wellsboro’s finest students spoke about lessons learned during their time of schooling. On today’s broadcast you will hear from Paige Carr, Lauren Gooch, Meghan Bodine, Kieron Smethers, Alice Hakvaag, Andrew Galloway, Alexandria Mansfield, Jacob Mitchell, Elise Becker, and Ben Davis.

Senior members of the chorus serenaded us with three songs throughout the evening including “May It Be,” “Let There Be Peace on Earth,” and “Seize the Day.”

This year’s featured speaker was Shawn Mayo. Mr. Mayo has been a substitute teacher for the past two years in the Wellsboro Area School District. He is also the Youth Pastor at Vineyard Church of Wellsboro. In his address, he talked about how wisdom is a powerful tool. He encouraged the students not to let their new found freedom trap them by making poor life decisions. Pastor Mayo stated, “You can put your hand on the stove and feel the pain, you can watch someone put their hand on the stove, or you can have the wisdom to not try it.”
