Spring fun in Foxburg

Spring has arrived in Foxburg.

Last weekend the first Horseshoes for Life tournament was a success at RiverStone Farm. The Clarion University team won the tournament from a field of nine teams. The Bike Trail was filled with hikers and bikers. The Foxburg Country Club opened the golf course and we had some folks from Canada take advantage of our “Stay and Play” Package.

There have been Canoes and Kayaks on the Allegheny and Clarion Rivers and some folks Fishing from the shores. The Segway Guided Tours are now up and running again on RiverStone Farm. Saturday brought many Motorcycles to the Foxburg Wine Cellar, Allegheny Grille and the Foxburg Pizza and Country Store.

On Saturday, April 18th ARCA will present Spring Fling, a Classical Cabaret at Lincoln Hall featuring Eric Siepkes on the fabulous Steinway piano. Dinner begins at 7PM followed by the concert. Tickets are $40.00 per person and may be purchased at the front desk of the Foxburg Inn Hotel. Call 724 659 3116 for more information or to buy tickets.

Nothing lights up the brain like play.

Play, especially social play, is important, and even practical, in our lives. Check out this video of Dr. Stuart Brown presenting at the TED Conference in May 2008. Dr. Brown has done significant research on the merits of play as major factor leading to success in both children and adults.

Foxburg is a Playground for many recreational activities. Explore the TED website and the National Institute for Play to learn more about Dr. Brown and his findings. And then explore more opportunities to play in your life.

Get smarter, feel better, play more at home and in Foxburg!

    I was one of those Canadians that enjoyed the Stay and Play in early April. The Foxburg Inn is beautiful, extremely comfortable and the Foxburg area is simply gorgeous. Everyone should experience it. We will again, this fall. Thank you for a great stay.
