Punch cards available for

Salvation Army Soup Off

LOCK HAVEN — The Salvation Army in Lock Haven is holiding it’s annual Soup Off fundraiser this year, but it will be a little different due to COVID restrictions limiting the size of crowds and gatherings.

Instead of a ticket to a sit-down lunch, your $10 contribution gets you a Punch Card to use for a free cup of soup anytime between Oct. 1 and Nov. 20 at the six participating restaurants – the Dutch Haven and Stella A’s Bar & Grill in Lock Haven, Haywood’s on the Green, Valley Hotel and Creekside Restaurant in Mill Hall, and The Cottage Restaurant in Lamar.

Then, you can come to the Salvation Army on East Church Street in Lock Haven on Friday, Nov. 20 anytime between 9 a.m. and 2 p.m. for a cup of soup from an amateur cook — Salvation Army’s own Jesse McKinney.

There will also be a silent auction going on during that time.

All money from the Soup Off is directed toward the Salvation Army’s various feeding programs. You can purchase your punch card at the Salvation Army, WSQV Radio, The Express, or one of the participating restaurants.

Clinton County Historical

Society receives grant

LOCK HAVEN — The Clinton County Historical Society is pleased to announce that it has received a PHC CARES emergency relief grant from the Pennsylvania Humanities Council.

The money will be used to support their operations, provide tours safely at the Heisey House, continue to catalog their collection, provide research, offer free Second Sunday programs and continue free movie nights.

The Pennsylvania Humanities Council believes the humanities create positive change in our lives and communities, helping people come together to shape an equitable society.

The Historical Society is very grateful since it had to cancel its major fundraiser, Wine in The Wilds.
