Mary Malone knew she had a project on her hands, but as a director of the Historical Society of St. Marys and Benzinger Township, she was used to that. What she didnâ€™t know was that it would take her two years and counting, and lead her to discovering more about her own family history.
â€śI was at a historical society meeting, and afterwards I was going through one of the books on the shelves, and it was an Airco Carbon bookâ€”Speer Carbonâ€”and I found my dadâ€™s picture in there, and I got so excited because it was before I was even born,â€ť Malone said.
LANTZ CORNERS â€“ Local residents need to step to the plate and coordinate efforts to develop a trail over the corridor for the defunct Knox and Kane Railroad.
Without a local organization enthusiastically behind the proposal, the "Rails To Trails" concept won't happen.
This is the message delivered Wednesday by state and county officials during a presentation at the Barrel House Restaurant at Lantz Corners.
The Mt. Jewett Rotary Club hosted the forum.
The days of old-fashioned concerts in the park are being revived, as the Elk-Cameron Community Band plans to host two events in local parks in July.
Area residents are encouraged to bring their lawn chairs and enjoy an array of musical numbers, lemonade and cookies.
Each concert begins at 7 p.m. The first will be held Tuesday, July 17 at Memorial Park on Wolfel Avenue in St. Marys and the second will take place the following evening, Wednesday, July 18 at the Fox Township Community Park situated along SR 948. In case of rain, the St. Marys concert will be moved to the S. St. Marys Street
