Attention All Clarion University Alumni: New Brewery in Clarion!


How would you like to come back to Clarion and enjoy food and locally made beer? Clarion River Brewing Company – A Microbrewery Restaurant is coming to downtown Clarion in 2015! But, they need your help! Slippery Rock already has North Country Brewery, so we here in the Clarion Area should have one as well.

They have a goal of $30,000 dollars to be raised in a week! Can we help out with this? Any little bit can be put towards this campaign. Pledge as little as $1.00 or more!

Come back home to Clarion for fine foods, and wonderful locally produced beer!

We Listened To You!

We Listened To You!

Participants of the 2014 Nature Festival 5K Run/Walk said there were too many hills on the course. We have listened to your concerns! The course for the 2014 Foxburg Turkey Trot 5K Run/Walk on Saturday, November 22nd is mostly flat.

The 5K Run/Walk will start out at the Allegheny-Clarion Valley High School. You will follow the dirt road to the beautiful RiverStone Farm. From there you will cut across a marked path that will take you through the woods and back to the high school. If you want to practice, there are red flags marking the course.

The 2014 Foxburg Turkey Trot 5K Run/Walk is only a month away!

Don’t forget to go with the theme! Prizes will be awarded for the best costumes.

Come Celebrate!!!

Come Celebrate!!!

It’s been 50 years since the Beatles appeared on the Ed Sullivan show and changed America overnight! Enjoy the nostalgia of the Beatle’s musical brilliance with this superb Beatles Tribute Band.

Emlenton’s Crawford Center (511 Hill Street) will see the likes of John, Paul, George and Ringo on stage at 7:00 PM on Saturday, November 1st. Well..not really, but close enough to have you believing that you might be in the audience of the Ed Sullivan Show in 1964, when the Fab Four made their US television debut. This will prove to be an affordably priced family night of fun and if you’re of the proper age, you may have to explain to your children how this English band took America and then the world, by storm.

Adults $15, Students $8 in advance; At the door $20 for Adults and $10 for Students

Bill Zalewski, a Certified Financial Planner for Merrill Lynch has a passion for childhood wellness issues. An excellent musician himself, Bill found three other like-minded professionals and formed a band specializing in the music of the Beatles. They strive to limit their performances to helping charities and foundations that serve children’s issues raise money. This group donates their services as entertainers at high-level functions for these causes and are well regarded in these circles in the Pittsburgh region.
For this event, Bill and the band are donating their services in support of ARCA and its educational initiatives in the region.

We Support: Glade Run Foundation’s 2nd Annual Harvest Hoedown Benefit


Join the Glade Run Foundation in their 2nd Annual Harvest Hoedown Benefit. It will be held on Friday, October 10, 2014 at the Blueberry Hill Park Activity Center, Franklin Park.

This annual fundraiser welcomes families from across the tri-state area for a hoot n’ hollering good time complete with a BBQ buffet, live bluegrass music and live & silent auctions. Everyone in attendance is sure to enjoy a spectacular evening; but the real beneficiaries of the event are the children of Glade Run.

Dollars raised at this worthwhile event support Glade Run’s quality programs for at-risk children and families. These children come to Glad Run as victims of abuse and neglect and suffer with emotional and behavioral health issues. Last year alone, Glade Run served more than 4,000 individuals in need. The Glade Run Foundation has been serving our community for 160 years, and your support will enable them to continue to provide traumatized children with hope for a brighter future.

We Support: Easter Seals Original Duck Race


We Support: Easter Seals Original Duck Race

The Easter Seals Original Duck Race in conjunction with Franklin’s Applefest will be held on Sunday, October 5th @ 2:00PM at the fountain in Fountain Park. Prizes will be awarded!

The Duck Race is Easter Seals – Franklin Division’s largest fundraiser. Net proceeds from the Duck Race are applied to programs and services that provide children and adults with disabilities the skills, tools, and support they need to participate more fully within their families and communities.
Easter Seals Western and Central Pennsylvania has been one of our community’s oldest and most respected non-profit organizations:

* Each year, more than 20,500 infants, children and adults with disabilities and their families receive Easter Seals services in 47 counties throughout Western Pennsylvania.
* $.98 of every dollar raised locally by Easter Seals remains right here in Western and Central Pennsylvania.


Easter Seals is unique from other health and human services providers. Easter Seals’ greatest strength comes from the people who are Easter Seals. Relationships between therapists and clients, between teachers and preschoolers, between staff and parents and between volunteers and staff. Helping children and adults with disabilities gain greater independence involves whole individuals, whole families, and support systems.
