MAKING THE CUT – KATE REESE
Moving on from high school to play at the collegiate level is already an amazing athletic accomplishment. It is extremely rare to see an athlete play on two athletic teams. On this edition of Making the Cut we introduce an athlete who overcame the odds! Kate Reese is a 2008 graduate of Wellsboro High School who went on play at Susquehanna University and competed in volleyball and softball.

Reese overcame several challenges between the two sports. “It was difficult to manage my time,” she stated. “(I) had a total of 6 weeks off during the school year. And most of that was Christmas break.”

STEP OUTDOORS AT PACKER PARK
Packer Park has been popular for years due to its variety of activities and convenient location in downtown Wellsboro. The park is within short walking distance from most lodgings, and it is just behind the Penn Wells Lodge and Sherwood Motel.

Visitors to town and locals alike can enjoy the many facilities the park offers, including the Olympic-sized swimming pool. The pool accommodates both beginners and avid swimmers with a 3-foot section, a 4-foot section and 5-foot section for leisurely swimming. It also has a 50-meter and a 25-yard competitive course as well as a wading pool for toddlers and other small children. Pricing is flexible, as season memberships or daily entry passes are available.

ATTICS, BASEMENTS & SECRET PLACES
On Tuesday, July 19th, members of the Wellsboro Home Page staff were unexpectedly called into the office of Executive Producer, John Vogt, for a very important mission. Seeking risk and adventure in a quest for the unknown, the challenge was ultimately accepted. Detailed instructions led to the precise mission location, but an unseen trapdoor led to a dark and mysterious place. Confused, but curious, the team investigated their surroundings, desperately searching for the truth (and an exit!) in this eerie and unfamiliar area.

The mission was a success as the crew came across Arcadia Theatre manager, Peter Davis, who revealed some fascinating information on the history of this building. After opening in 1921, it was later acquired by Larry Woodin, the man also credited for the founding of the Pennsylvania State Laurel Festival. This theater shows a variety of movie genres for people of all ages. A few years ago, the Arcadia switched from traditional film to digital projection, making it easier to provide the movies we enjoy today with crisper visuals and sound.

LOOKING FOR WOMEN WITH STORIES
“Family and personal moments in our lives have shaped who we are. We often find they are among what we identify with and share with others throughout our lives. These stories are part of the legacy we leave for our children and share with friends when we are most ‘who we are.’” – Patricia Davis.

The Hamilton-Gibson Women’s Project is looking for women who have stories to share. Are you in need of a little encouragement on how to go about sharing your story in a memoir? Do you wonder where to begin? Who and What to write about?

BACK TO BASICS – PASSION
Determined to succeed, Ralph took to the streets, peddling his work at small clothing shops throughout New York City. In 1967 he opened his own shop where he sold many of his own creations. Ralph’s ties quickly became popular and he spent the next several years expanding his business. By the mid 80’s Ralph’s fame had spread and he owned clothing stores in several cities. By the 1990s Ralph’s company was producing clothing, furniture, fragrances, and even paint. In 1997 the company went public and was listed on the New York Stock Exchange using Ralph’s own initials. RL…
If you haven’t figured it out, Ralph Lifshitz is the man we know today as Ralph Lauren. He is worth an estimated $7 billion dollars and his impact on the world of fashion is nearly unmatched.

A story like this leaves us wondering…
What was it that motivated a college dropout whose work in the fashion industry was initially rejected — to persevere to the point of such great success? I think the answer can be summed up in a word: Passion.
In the end, God doesn’t want you to pursue your passion in order to have a fulfilling life, make a difference, or change the world. He wants your passion for Him to be so great that His glory, His name, and His fame are seen through you no matter what how menial or significant it seems.
That’s the kind of passion that leads to a life with no regrets.
