Spend A Day On A Dairy Farm
Submitted By Evie Goff

Did you grow up on a dairy farm, or spend time at your grandparents’ or uncle’s dairy farm and wish your children could visit a dairy farm? Or, maybe you never have had the opportunity to get right up close to the cows and see just how the farmer gets the milk from the cow to your dinner table. Well, you have a chance to do just that on Saturday, October 7, 11:00 a.m. till 4:00 p.m. at Mark and Cindy Tompkins’, Evergreen Lane Farm, located just outside of Montrose.

The Tompkins milk about 70 cows, with a herd average of over 26,000 pounds of milk. The Tompkins’ raise their own replacement heifers and their own crops to feed the dairy animals. Evergreen Lane Farm is located in a very scenic area, just four miles north of Montrose, on Mitchell Road, about one mile from route 29.

Susquehanna County Dairy Princess Ashley Franklin, Dairy Ambassadors, Abbey Puzo and Nikki Brooks are working with the Dairy Promotion Committee to organize the fifth annual “Day On A Dairy Farm” event. This educational event includes lots of fun for all ages.

For more information call Evie Goff at 278-1212 (home) or 278-1158 (work), Mary Puzo at 278-4704 or Cindy Tompkins at 278-4575.

Honoring Veterans

Rep. Tina Pickett (R-Bradford/Sullivan/Susquehanna) will honor living veterans from the 110th Legislative District who served in conflicts from World War II to the present, in ceremonies to be held in October.

"This is a wonderful opportunity to publicly thank these veterans for their dedication and honorable service to our county," said Pickett.

Pickett will hold a recognition ceremony on Saturday, October 14, 10 a.m. at the Elk Lake High School Auditorium on School House Road.

"We have heard from an overwhelming number of local veterans who would like to participate in this event," said Pickett. "They deserve our support and appreciation for the sacrifices they have made in the name of freedom. I encourage all local residents to come out and support our local veterans at one of the veteran recognition ceremonies."

Veterans or their families who have not contacted Pickett and would still like to participate in the recognition ceremony or those who are looking for further information should call Pickett's district offices at (570) 265-3124 in Towanda, (570) 888-9011 in Sayre, (570) 946-7673 in Sullivan County or (570) 934-2557 in Lawton.

Lowell Mason At G. B. Alliance

International TV and recording artist Lowell Mason will be appearing at the Great Bend Alliance Church on Thursday, October 12 at 7:00 p.m. Lowell Mason has been called the World’s Smallest Gospel Singer because of his unique height of only 46 inches. His mellifluous voice, however, has no comparison to his size. When he sings, his booming voice brings a thrill to everyone who listens.

As a full-time Evangelist, Lowell travels nearly 100,000 miles each year, taking the Gospel in song and sermon across America and around the world. Since 1992 he has made several crusade tours to Russia. In joint cooperation with Revival Fires, Brother Mason has helped distribute over 3 million Bibles to the school children of that nation, conducts revival meetings, helps establish new churches and organizes Gospel Team tours to Russia.

This special concert is open to the general public and will feature “Gospel Music Branson Style,” along with a current report on the 13-year Bible Distribution program in Russia. There is no admission charge. A freewill offering will be received.

For information or directions to the church, call (570) 879–2741.
