Agency On Aging Bids A Fond Farewell

Submitted by Kelly Hall, Community Services Coordinator

Goodbyes are never easy, but it can be particularly difficult to part ways with those who touch our hearts in a special way. Longtime Aging Care Manager for B/S/S/T Area Agency on Aging, Inc. Charlie Brennan is one of those special people, and with his retirement January 15, his coworkers and clients reflect on the legacy he leaves behind.

With over 18 years of service to older adults around the Wellsboro area, Charlie is a familiar and friendly face to many. Often going above and beyond, Charlie earned the adoration of all those under his care. It was not uncommon for Charlie to bring a client their favorite sweet treat or a cup of coffee when making his regular home visits. Charlie's passion for philanthropy is shared by his wife and children; for many years Charlie and his family have spent Thanksgiving Day delivering dinners made by his church to older adults who were not able to enjoy the holiday with family.

Charlie not only touched the hearts of those he served, but all those that he worked with. One coworker said, "Charlie has a remarkable spirit of kindness. If any time I needed help, Charlie was the first to offer it. He is a sincere example of a good man." Not only is Charlie very kind, but he also has a great sense of humor. Charlie often regaled coworkers with tales of his bad luck in most hilarious style. From the time he fell in the landfill, to the time his car went from parked in the lot to rolling down the hill and across Route 6, he always recalls his various past misfortunes with cheer.

So what's next for Charlie? He says his schedule won't change too quickly. He still plans on waking up early to start Lydia's car for her as she has not yet joined him in retirement, before tuning in to his favorite meteorologist Joe Snedeker. He looks forward to spending more time walking and biking, and trying out his newly gifted fly rod. And of course Charlie plans to continue giving back to the community through volunteerism, helping out at the local food pantry and as a delivery driver for Meals on Wheels Endless Mountains further down the road.

B/S/S/T Area Agency on Aging, Inc. sincerely thanks Charlie for his years of dedication and service to older adults of Tioga County, and wishes him all the best in his retirement. Charlie's legacy of kindness and generosity will continue to be an inspiration to staff of B/S/S/T Area Agency on Aging, Inc. for many years to come.

The B/S/S/T Area Agency on Aging, Inc. is funded in part by the Pennsylvania Department of Aging; the United Way of Bradford County; the Lycoming County United Way serving Wellsboro and southern Tioga County; and the United Way of Susquehanna County. For additional information on Area Agency on Aging services, please call 1-800-982-4346.

Filling A Purse For Women's Center

The Christmas meeting of the Beta Rho Chapter was held at the Susquehanna County Library in Montrose. The local chapter members of women educators of the Delta Kappa Gamma Society International participate in a variety of projects to help women, children and education. The "Fill a Purse for the Women's Resource Center" project involved members filling a purse or tote bag, new or gently used, with items which a woman could use if she suddenly had to leave her home. Items such as make-up, feminine products, comb, toothpaste, toothbrush, socks, slippers, notebooks, pens, hats, gloves, fleece-throw blankets, hair ties and other supplies, notecards and stamps were some of the items which filled each of the purses. The purses were then taken to the Women's Resource Centers in Montrose and Tunkhannock. Pat Arnold, chairman of the Personal Growth and Services Committee, organized the collection of purses.

Over two dozen purses were collected and then donated to the two Women's Resource Centers to help and support women in crisis. In the past, the chapter has also supported individuals through the centers with "Fill a Backpack for Children" project and "Fill a Basket with Cleaning Supplies." The centers are always so pleased with the donations and indicated what a help it is for families who come to the center.

Volunteer As A Fresh Air Host

Fresh Air summers are filled with children running through the sprinklers in the grass, gazing at star-filled skies and swimming for the first time. This summer, join volunteer host families in Northeastern Pennsylvania, and open your heart and home to a Fresh Air child. Each summer, thousands of children from New York City's low-income communities visit suburban, rural and small town communities along the East Coast and Southern Canada through The Fresh Air Fund's Friendly Towns Program.

"My first year hosting, I was so nervous and my boys kept saying it would be great. And then by the end, I was in tears. That moment I realized what a special program Friendly Towns is and how impactful it is to our lives and theirs," Kim Carrico says. "We go to Adventureland with other Fresh Air families, to the pool and keep in touch during the year. Asah and Jalon have had such an impact on my kids' lives and my own." Asah, age 13, of the Bronx, and Jalon, age 14, of Brooklyn, have been visiting the Carrico family in Kings Park, NY, for two summers and three summers, respectively.

The Fresh Air Fund, an independent, not-for-profit agency, has provided free summer experiences to more than 1.8 million New York City children from low-income communities since 1877. First time Fresh Air children are boys and girls, from seven to 13 years old, who live in New York City. Children who are reinvited by host families may continue with The Fresh Air Fund through age 18 and can enjoy extended trips.

For more information about hosting a Fresh Air child this summer, please contact Kavita Shah at 212-897-8970 or visit www.FreshAir.org.

"We had an exciting campaign this year. Our retirees and employees appreciate being able to help the community in this way," said Jose de los Rios, P&G Mehoopany Public Relations Manager. "This year's campaign was very successful as our retiree, employee and corporate giving exceeded $555,000 in support of the six area United Ways in Northeastern Pennsylvania." The by-county breakdown was; $214,390 to United Way of Wyoming County; $90,767 to United Way of Wyoming Valley; $87,062 to United Way of Bradford County; $69,760 to United Way of Lackawanna and Wayne Counties; $64,293 to United Way of Susquehanna County and $26,302 to United Way of Sullivan County.

"We are so grateful to P&G for its support of the United Way campaign," stated Kim Merithew, UWSC Director of Corporate and Community Giving. In addition to their financial support, P&G employees donated their time and talent throughout the year to each of the local United Ways by participating in a number of Day of Caring activities which benefited local nonprofits throughout Northeast PA. In Susquehanna County, P&G employees volunteered at the Montrose Food Pantry assisting with packing and food distribution for families struggling with food insecurity.

Over the past 5 years P&G retirees, employees, and corporate giving have donated more than $2,500,000 to the local area united ways. Jose de los Rios said, 'We are very fortunate to have such generous retirees and employees who value the importance of giving back to the community and understand the mission of the United Way and its partner agencies and the support these agencies provide to individuals and families in need.'

Select A Quality Mix For Success

Submitted by Melinda Myers

Improve your indoor and outdoor container gardening success with a quality potting mix. This can be more difficult than it sounds since you can't see or feel the product you are about to buy. Ask your gardening friends for recommendations and once at the garden center, check the package, and compare label information before making a purchase.

You'll find a variety of bags labeled as planting mix, potting mix, container mix and more. Check the label to see what the bag contains and recommendations for its use. Look for mixes, we'll refer to as potting mixes, blended for growing indoor, ornamental and edible plants in containers. They are a mix of organic and inorganic materials that retain moisture while draining well. Some mixes include sand and mineral soil while many are labeled as "soilless." These lightweight mixes consist of peat moss, sphagnum moss and compost for moisture retention, vermiculite or perlite for drainage but do not contain mineral soils such as sand or clay.

Potting mixes may be modified to accommodate the needs of certain plants. Orchid mixes often contain more bark for better aeration, cacti and succulent mixes have more sand or perlite for better drainage and African violet potting mix contains more organic matter to create a moist, rich growing medium.

Organic potting mixes are also available if you prefer to know the ingredients are free of pesticides and other contaminants. Check for the word organic and OMRI listed on the bag.

Potting mixes may or may not be sterilized to kill weed seeds and pests. If it doesn't say sterilized, it probably isn't.

As you narrow down your choices, continue checking the label for more details. Potting mixes often contain a "starter charge" of fertilizer. This minimal amount of fertilizer is usually gone after two or three waterings. Some include additional fertilizer that provides small amounts of nutrients over a longer period of time. The label may say controlled-release, time-release or slow release fertilizer, providing nutrients for the allotment of time specified.

Natural or synthetic wetting agents are often included to reduce the surface tension of water, so it's better able to penetrate and evenly moisten the potting mix. Organic mixes often use yucca extract as a wetting agent.

Potting mixes should be light, fluffy and moist. Avoid bags that are waterlogged and heavy. The mix can break down, become compacted and some of the slow release fertilizer may be pre-released and damage young seedlings when saturated with water.

Moisten the potting mix with warm water before potting your plants. This helps ensure even moisture throughout. If the potting mix becomes overly dry, you may need to do a bit more work to re-wet all the mix in the container. Set the pot in a container of warm water and wait for the potting mix to re-hydrate. Or water thoroughly, wait 20 minutes and water again. Repeat until you achieve success.

Take the time to do a bit of research before buying your next bag of potting mix. Your efforts will be rewarded with healthy plants, beautiful blooms and a bountiful harvest from your indoor and outdoor potted plants.

The goal of the program is to create healthier school environments that experience positive, sustainable, and lasting change through comprehensive strategies.

"Our schools have a tremendous holistic opportunity to be the foundation for systemic improvement in children's health," said Highmark Foundation President Yvonne Cook. "We are very pleased with the impact the School Grant and Awards program has had in its first seven years and are looking forward to expanding that impact to include school-based health initiatives. We encourage all eligible schools to apply and partner with the Highmark Foundation to create a healthier and safer school environment."

Public, private, parochial and charter schools, and vocational high schools throughout West Virginia and Pennsylvania (excluding Bucks, Chester, Delaware, Montgomery, and Philadelphia counties) are invited to apply for the three offerings of the Highmark Foundation's School Grant and Awards Program:

  • Advancing Excellence in School Nursing Awards recognize the important role school nurses play in adolescent health and wellness. Awardees will be presented this honor, accompanied by $1,500 to be used for professional development or school resources.

  • Supportive Services Health Grants are part of a strategy to support economically disadvantaged school districts and high-needs schools with financial assistance to meet basic health requests. Schools must meet strict criteria to be eligible. Child Health and Wellness grants up to $1,000 will be awarded to schools to assist with the purchase of items impacting students' supportive, social, and health needs. School Equipment and Supplies Challenge grants will match up to $2,500 for the purchase of specialized equipment or supplies that enable school nurses to better perform their valuable services. Proof of matching funds from other sources must be included in the application.

  • All applications must be submitted online by March 31, 2020.

Yaw, Fritz, Pickett Applaud Funding

Two local workforce development boards were awarded funding this week by the Pennsylvania Department of Labor and Industry (L&I) to boost educational opportunities and career training in the region, according to state Sen. Gene Yaw (R-23), Rep. Tina Pickett (R-Bradford/Sullivan/Susquehanna) and Rep. Jonathan Fritz (R-Susquehanna/Wayne).

The Central Pennsylvania Workforce Development Board (CPWDC), which serves Centre, Clinton, Columbia, Lycoming, Mifflin, Montour, Northumberland, Snyder, and Union counties, was awarded $121,080 and the Northern Tier Workforce Development Board, which serves Bradford, Tioga, Sullivan, Susquehanna and Wyoming counties, was awarded $131,006. The local recipients were two of 19 grants totaling $2.4 million that were awarded statewide in the current round of funding.

"Both grants will support programs to connect schools, employers, and students to career-related experiences and opportunities locally," Sen. Yaw said. "Some of the programs could include soft-skills development, internships, workplace shadowing and career mentoring. These are worthy state investments."

"This grant will allow the board's extremely successful program to continue for a sixth year," said Pickett. "It will expand services to include increased connections to work-based learning opportunities, more connections to STEM activities and increased parental involvement."

"Our children's future is always a priority," said Fritz. "This funding will allow this board to cultivate partnerships with local schools and employers to ensure that students gain essential career-readiness experiences to help them secure jobs after graduation."

"CPWDC is excited for the opportunities the Business and Education funding provides for the Central PA community," said Erica Mulberger, CPWDC Executive Director. "With this year's grant, CPWDC is focusing not only on increasing students' exposure to local careers, but also exposing more parents to local companies by hosting 'Parent Pathways Awareness Nights.' Our goal is for parents and students to understand the career and post-secondary training opportunities available in the region, so they can make informed decisions before graduation. The last thing we want as a workforce development board is for students to incur debt for training that doesn't align with the family sustaining career opportunities that employers are offering now and in the future. Additionally, we're implementing a mentoring program matching students with adult mentors from local businesses for a 12-month mentorship program. We know many youth are growing up without supportive adults, and we want to help these underserved youth break the cycle of poverty in their families by connecting them with positive role-models."

"Northern Tier is greatly appreciative of the opportunity to serve the youth of our region," said Kevin D. Abrams, Executive Director, Northern Tier Regional Planning & Development Commission. "We very much look forward to utilizing these funds as we begin the sixth year of this program."

The funding was provided through the Business-Education Partnerships grant program, which is administered by L&I and 100% funded by the federal government.

Great Outdoors Contest For Kids

The TurfMutt Foundation announces The (Really) Great Outdoors Contest 2020, focused on urging kids to use their imaginations around the many uses and benefits of green space and the outdoors. Open to students in grades six to eight, last year's contest drew over 2,700 submissions from middle school youth.

Created in partnership with Scholastic, the global children's publishing, education and media company, the contest encourages students to write about and/or draw a nature space their community could use. Students are also asked to include text to describe the space, discuss what elements are needed, and how their space will be used to benefit the community. Each entry can be no more than three pages.

"We mean it when we say nature starts at your back door. Introducing kids to the outdoors is good for them and good for all of us," says Kris Kiser, President and CEO of the TurfMutt Foundation and the Outdoor Power Equipment Institute. "Family yards, school yards and parks are part of a vast ecosystem that supports all of us. The contest helps the next generation envision how people – wherever they may live – can spend time outside."

Last year's contest was open to middle schoolers for the first time. "Our winners last year imagined beautiful and, more importantly, functional and purposeful designs for green spaces," said Kiser.

"We want kids to understand that our lawns and greenspaces are urban habitats. These spaces are critical to wildlife, pollinators, and the health and well-being of communities," said Kiser. "They need to picture themselves within those greenspaces – and the contest is a great way for them to do that."

Ten thousand dollars in prizes will be awarded through the contest. The grand prize for a student is $2,500, with teachers and the school each receiving a $750 prize. The first place student will receive $2,000 and the teacher and the school will each receive $500. The second place student will receive $1,500 and the teacher and the school will each receive $250. The third place student will receive $750 and the teacher and the school will each receive $125.

Teachers can download lesson plans and contest entry information from www.scholastic.com/turfmutt. Entries can be accepted online and uploaded by teachers, or mailed in by teachers or students alike. Entries are due March 16, 2020. Last year's winning entries are available online for viewing.

The program's educational materialsare free and support Science, Technology, Engineering and Math (STEM) standards for grades K–8. The TurfMutt environmental education program, funded and managed by OPEI's Research and Education Foundation, has reached 70 million students, teachers, and families since 2009.

How handsome is this guy? Ready to jump right into your heart, Colby is a beautiful shepherd mix. He is a 5yr old, neutered, UTD, microchipped boy who is extremely lovable, friendly, and enjoys the company of both human and canine companions. Playful and appreciative of the simple pleasures in life, like a long walk or a good game of fetch, Colby is a spirited soul with a heart full of love. He does tend to be overprotective of his belongings so he would do best in an environment minus small children, although he loves kids outside the home, and with someone who understands his insecurities and can teach him how to be more comfortable. If you are seeking a buddy to put that extra something in your day, please give this pup with personality a chance.
