Business Association Helps Area Watershed
By Sandra Kazinetz

At the May meeting of the Northern Susquehanna River Watershed Association, Eleanor Lempke, president of the Endless Mountains Business Association was pleased to present the Watershed with a donation of $150 on behalf of the business group. Members of the Watershed were, in turn, very pleased to receive it.

Both associations share a common goal, which is to help promote quality of life and increased growth opportunities in the communities they serve. Working to stabilize and improve the watershed protects not only the businesses and homes that lie within it, but also makes for a more stable environment and infrastructure to attract new businesses and new families to the area. Doing so is expected to enhance the business climate in the Blue Ridge School District area, which is the mission of the Endless Mountains Business Association. It also seeks to strengthen the local economy by promoting local businesses through sponsored events and information-sharing among members.

The business group is 30 members strong and represents a broad diversity of businesses that have chosen to serve the area. Its activities focus on strengthening the economy of the area, while maintaining all that makes it unique. The Association maintains a busy calendar, and more can be learned about it by visiting it on the web at

If you want more information about the benefits of memberships and what you can do help promote local business, you can contact the group through its website or, better yet, call Penny Scarborough at (570) 241-5109.

4-H News Sizzlin’ Steaks

The Sizzlin’ Steaks 4-H Club met in the Harford Church Lecture Hall for a meeting which began at 7:00. After we said the pledges, everyone said who they were and a little bit about themselves. We turned in our application forms and also wrote down what projects we would like to take this year.

Mrs. Harvatine talked about the 4th of July parade, and that the parade people would like a lot of clubs to be represented in the parade. We have families with trucks, so the whole families could ride if they wished.

Mr. Mitchell and Mrs. Harvatine also talked about benches for the fair, with money donated by the 4-H Clubs to purchase a bench. We will talk about this some more after we read about it in the Newsline.

Our club project will be the new First Aid Project.
