Car Seat Safety Check May 27th

As part of National EMS Week, May 21 - 27th, 2023 and National EMS for Children Day, Emergency Medical Services of Northeastern Pennsylvania and Wayne Memorial Hospital are hosting a Child Car Seat Safety Check in Honesdale Saturday morning, May 27th. The event will take place in the hospital's outpatient parking lot at 601 Park Street Honesdale from 9:00am to 12:00pm. Certified Child Passenger Safety Technicians will inspect car seats free of charge and demonstrate how to correctly install and use them. Children must be present for car seat check. Important safety information will be available regarding age, height, and weight requirements for car seats and boosters as well as installation and seat expiration dates.

The American Academy of Pediatrics advises parents not to use a car seat past its expiration date. The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration requires permanent visible labels that say the car seat is certified and complies with Federal Motor Vehicle Safety Standards or FMVSS 213.

"Studies show that following all safety guidelines for car seats can reduce severe and fatal injuries in children by as much as 80%," says Wayne Memorial Community Health Manager Carol Kneier MS, RD, LDN, CDCES, noting that Wayne Memorial Hospital is a Level IV Trauma Center.

Pennsylvania law dictates that until the age of 2, children must be in a rear facing car seat until the child outgrows the maximum height and weight constraints designated by the manufacturer. Children ages 4 through 8 must be in an approved booster seat when riding in a vehicle. A limited number of car safety seats will be available for parents or guardians unable to purchase one. All information and services at this event are free of charge.

For more information contact Bob Carpenter, at 570-655-6818.

In addition to the perennials being sold by the garden club, there will be fresh bouquets, dried flowers and herbs. Beekeeper Catherine Hynes will be telling us about the importance of having bees in our gardens. There will be weavers, woodworkers, jewelry makers and more.

And we can't forget the food vendors. Christ Episcopal Church will be selling cabbage and noodles and meatball hoagies, the Community Vacation Bible School will be selling hot dogs and wimpies. Music will be provided by Jim Carro who has entertained us over the years.

Our flea market, 2nd Hand Rose, will be there this year with a different twist. Rather than pricing all of the knick-knacks, dishes and decorations, you will be asked to 'make an offer' with all of the proceeds going toward community and educational grants.

Summer Solstice Pre-Fest Concert

Fiddler and folksinger Emerald Rae brings the duo of strings and songs to a new plateau with mesmerizing dexterity. Hailing from the seaside town of Gloucester, MA, Emerald Rae is both a small-town girl steeped in cherished folk traditions and a world-class artist breaking new ground with inventive fiddle effects. A degree in Film Scoring from Berklee College of Music in Boston gave her the freedom to cast a wide creative net, while her grit and intensity were earned during her twenty-year career as a powerhouse fiddler and dancer. Rae embarked on her first journey into songwriting and multi-instrumentalism with "If Only I Could Fly" (May 2013), featuring her prowess on fiddle, vocals, guitar and the crwth ("krooth", an ancient Welsh fiddle), and took to the road from the Canadian Maritimes to Shanghai.

Concert openers include the Jehile Kirkhuff Memorial Band and the Airport Pickers out of Tunkhannock, PA.

Join May 27th at the Keystone Theatre in Towanda at 7:30pm for this rousing live concert. Tickets are $15 and available online at and by calling the BCRAC at 570-268-2787.

All proceeds will benefit programming at the Susquehanna Summer Solstice Fest 2023, taking place from June 13-18, 2023 at French Azilum in Wysox, PA. Find out more about the Susquehanna Summer Solstice Fest at
