THE ROBERT BLAIR CHRISTMAS CARD EXHIBIT
“A Blair House Original Limited Edition Christmas Card Collection: 1993—2014” has been a multi-decade project in the making. It has been 21 years since I first started this Blair House Tradition. At times it seems like a flash of a moment…at others times like a lifetime…life’s great mystery. I remember so clearly coming up with the idea for my own Christmas card after visiting so many card shops in Wellsboro and Corning and not finding one that reflected my vision of Christmas . . . then it hit me. I take some pretty good night photographs of Wellsboro, why not make my own cards…and the Blair House Tradition was begun…” Read more.
THANKFUL FOR FAMILY AND ICE CREAM
What do Thanksgiving, adoption, and ice cream have in common? Find out today on Wellsboro Home Page! Our Penn State correspondent Corrin Jones talks with Home Page Operations Manager John Vogt. In today’s feature, John shares about the blessings of adoption and how his grandfather, (a Penn State Graduate), learned his trade of making that famous Vogt’s Ice Cream from Penn State University. Vogt’s Ice cream was based in Emporium, Pennsylvania and operated for many years back in the 1930s to the early 60s. Read more.
WELCOME TO DUNHAM’S CORNER!
Twas many nights before Christmas
And all through Dunham’s department store
Came a group of children eager to explore.
Not alone, of course,
But with help from a trusted guide
Who helped them discover the joys inside!
Today we welcome our Wellsboro Home Page viewers to a brand new feature. It’s called Dunham’s Corner, and you never know what might happen here! But we can tell you this – it will be fun, informative and save you money. Ann Dunham Rawson is the host of this new feature. You can always find this broadcast listed under Special Features, located on our left sidebar under the heading “Special Features.”
Today on Wellsboro Home Page we give thanks for our many blessings. Life can be difficult and very challenging at times, but we can always find things for which we are thankful.
I have found that a thankful heart will bring a person peace, rest and great joy. Being thankful is not only a tremendous blessing to those around us, but it has great benefits for us as well.
Being thankful moves us from being cranky and ill-tempered to being patient and loving. Being thankful helps us to get our eyes off ourselves and looking to the needs of others. Being thankful tends to make us a giver instead of a taker. A thankful person is a kind person. When we are thankful we tend to be joyful and more appreciative of others. Read more.
