HORNETS SHUTOUT TOWANDA, 21-0
The Wellsboro Varsity Football team won their fourth game of the year, and third by shutout, 21-0 over Towanda on Friday, September 16.
“Our defense continues to play great football,” continued Hildebrand. “The pressure builds on me on the offensive side to put it in the end zone. Mike Pietropola does a great job with our guys. We have a lot of guys that get in on defense and they just continue to step up and do good things for us.”

STUDENT CAR DESIGNS INSPIRE BMW
A great teacher is also futuristic, putting his or her students in the best possible position to grow into their God-given potential. That’s exactly what R. B. Walter Elementary school art teacher, Randy McKee, did when he came up with the idea for an annual art project called, “CARS OF THE FUTURE.” Mr. McKee had his students design these “cars of the future” and then he sent them to major auto manufacturers. BMW America was so impressed they deployed two representatives in a $150,000 Electric/Gas Powered BMW i8 sports car to meet with the kids.

CHAMBER HIGHLIGHTS – FALL SEASON ACTIVITIES
Summer is coming to a close, and as the leaves change, so do our calendars. It’s time to mark yours with fall season activities! Wellsboro Area Chamber of Commerce President, Marsha Chesko, offers a peek at just a few of the many autumn offerings in Wellsboro.
“We have lots of concerts, lots of music going on in the next six weeks,” remarks Chesko. The Wellsboro Community Concert Series will be starting in October, debuting with two concerts at the Deane Center for the Performing Arts. On October 1st at 7:30pm, Johnny Cash’s younger brother, Tommy Cash, will be playing in the Coolidge Theatre at the Deane Center. The second community concert series show will star Toby Walker at 7:30pm on October 28th, also in the Coolidge Theatre.

BUCKTAIL TENNIS TOPS WELLSBORO, 5-2
The Wellsboro Girls Tennis team suffered a 5-2 non-league defeat to Bucktail on Wednesday, September 21. Freshman Kristen Bair came up with a win in her singles match against Myka Poorman.
“It was pretty good, they’re a really hard team to play,” Bair stated. When asked how she felt about her win, “I surprised myself…I didn’t think I would be as good at first, but I’ve been getting better.
“They played really well, but Bucktail is a really good team,” head coach Brianna Thompson added, but they have a few adjustments to make before their next match. “Our doubles teams – I want them to do a little better playing together.”

BACK TO BASICS – COMMUNITY
It’s human nature for us to become part of communities. We join athletic teams and clubs, and clubs and societies, and most importantly, we form organic friendships with those around us. It’s interaction which helps us to develop and change. Maybe you sometimes feel isolated or lonely at times. Maybe you’re struggling to find community that welcomes you where you feel comfortable.
Jesus describes ideal community as fellowship or “koinonia.” It means to share something in common. And the church is where this “koinonia” happens. Everyone shares in their relationship with Jesus. The Bible illustrates this community as a body where christ is the head and we are its members, his hands and feet. And every part of the body has a different purpose and it functions best when all its members are unified. The hands need the feet. The eyes need the hands for the whole body to function properly. When we’re unified we suffer together, we rejoice together. We need each other. And through a unified body our spiritual gifts are given purpose as we work together.
