LOCK HAVEN — In partnership with the It’s On Us PA campaign, Lock Haven University will host speaker, activist and author Elizabeth Smart at 7 p.m. on Wednesday, Sept. 19, in Price Auditorium on campus.

Smart, who was abducted from her home in 2002 at the age of 14 and held captive for nine months, will share her traumatic story and talk about what it takes to overcome trauma, find the strength to move on and reclaim one’s life.

LOCK HAVEN — The Third Annual Piper Aviation Museum Jeep Mystery Tour will be held on Saturday, Sept. 22, beginning at 9 a.m., when all participating jeeps will leave on a ride though Clinton County’s remote forests.

There are still openings and drivers are coming from as far away as New Jersey to participate.

The cost is $40 for the jeep driver, and $25 for each additional passenger or for anyone who just wants to come to the dinner. All proceeds benefit the Piper Aviation Museum. Payments can be made in advance by calling the museum at 570-748-8283.
