JOIN US AND RELAY FOR LIFE!
The American Cancer Society states that each year, more that 4 million people in over twenty countries raise the much-needed funds and awareness to save lives from cancer through the Relay For Life movement. This year’s local Relay for Life will take place on The Green in Wellsboro on July 16th beginning at 10:00 AM. You can register in advance or at the event. Most of us have lost family and/or friends to this tragic disease. This is a true opportunity for you to make a difference in our fight against cancer by your participation in Relay for Life.
GREAT BURGERS, GREAT CAUSE!
Do you want to try great burgers for a great cause? Second Chance Animal Sanctuaries is working together with 16 restaurants in Tioga County until Labor Day to provide this incredible opportunity. In today’s feature video, Jim Howe, President of Second Chance, tells us more about how this fundraiser came to be.
“We’re getting people to come out into the restaurants,” says Howe. “They’re getting to visit restaurants they’ve never been to. You get to taste all the burgers, you get a discount on every burger, and…you get to help Second Chance Animal Sanctuaries and our Heading Home Center for lost and abandoned animals. You’re a winner-winner! You get to help animals and taste good burgers!”

CHAMBER HIGHLIGHTS – LATE SUMMER EVENTS
Welcome to another edition of Chamber Highlights with Marsha Chesko. We’ve had a wonderful summer so far, and it’s still plenty left! Why not spend it hiking through the beautiful countryside, or canoeing on one of our area lakes, or maybe take a covered wagon ride through the canyon? There’s always something fun to do outside, and music is everywhere! Come and play the pianos located on Main Street in Wellsboro. These old pianos have been donated and hand-painted by members of the community.
You can also enjoy music outdoors on The Green on Wednesday, July 27th by the “Almost World Famous” Wellsboro Town Band! Bring a lawn chair or blanket and relax and be serenaded by these talented musicians directed by Dr. Adam Brennan.
THE GRAND CANYON PHOTOGRAPHY CLUB
The Grand Canyon photography club has inspired amateur, intermediate and professional photographers to expand their senses and delve deeper spiritually, emotionally and physically into the art of photography for the last sixteen years.
From that gathering of like-minded individuals has come a plethora of exceptional photographic works, many of which are now on display in the lobby gallery at the Deane Center in downtown Wellsboro.
Have you always had a passion and interest in photography? You are invited to share your enthusiasm with others at the annual monthly meeting to be held next on Tuesday, August 9th starting at 7pm in the Gmeiner Art Center located next to the Green Free Library in downtown Wellsboro.
