BENEZETTE â€“ During his visit to Elk County on Thursday, Governor Tom Corbett emphasized the importance of public-private partnerships within the state's tourism industry, specifically relating to state parks, visitors centers and more.
"I think it's a wave of the future of the industry not just in Pennsylvania, but around the country, where we can get more bang for our buck if we invoke the private community," Corbett said.
He added by growing in such partnerships allows everyone to get a better product rather than just relying upon state tax dollars.
George and Dolly Bauer arrived at the Elk Haven Nursing Home Friday morning to load their car with prepared hot meals to deliver to elderly residents through the Meals On Wheels program. George and Dolly have been volunteering their time to Meals On Wheels for over 20 years.
George, who is retired from Keystone Carbon, described his volunteer experience as a good way to stay physically active and to stay connected with the community.
