Around the Town
to Tom Bossert. If you see Tom this weekend, make sure to wish him a happy birthday. He’ll turn 80 years old tomorrow. Currently mayor of Mill Hall, he’s a former teacher, farmer, district magistrate, and county commissioner, and who knows what else he does. One thing’s for sure… he’s a busy guy who enjoys people and being involved in his community.

Help a local
With the “green phase” of Gov. Tom Wolf’s reopening plan having reached Clinton County many local businesses have finally reopened their doors and expanded services. Be sure to shop locally and eat-in (where able) or take-out from your favorite restaurants. Lock Haven and the surrounding areas have wonderful small businesses that rely on the community’s support to keep going. During these tough times they need you now more than ever. So be sure to shop local as often as you can… and wear a mask.
