Priestly House to Re-Open (hoo-ray!)

The Friends of Joseph Priestley House Museum will reopen the site for weekend

tours beginning Saturday, Oct. 3.  Heritage Day, a grand reopening event will be held

Sunday, Nov. 1 from 1-4 p.m., it was announced at the group’s annual meeting Thursday

in Northumberland, PA.

The site has been closed since mid-August due to the state’s budget emergency, which

forced the furlough of its paid staff and nearly caused permanent closing of the museum.

In the future, Friends’ members, serving as volunteers, will lead weekend tours for the

public. School and community group tours can be scheduled at other times. For

information, contact the Friends’ website (www.josephpriestleyhouse.org.)

Local Health Care Forum

Helping to Publicize…

On behalf of the Central Susquehanna Citizen’s Coalition, I would like to
invite you to a forum entitled

“Re-Imagining Healthcare in Pennsylvania: The Next Five Years and Beyond”

to be held next Thursday, May 7, at 7:00pm, in the Union County Government
Center at 155 N 15th St, Lewisburg.

A panel of five healthcare professionals will discuss the current state of
healthcare in PA and proposed solutions for the future, to be followed by a
interactive discussion with the audience.  The panelists are

* Allison Clark, ACTION Health
* Jill Fecker, A Community Clinic, Inc.
* Chuck Pennacchio, Healthcare for All Pennsylvania
* Andrew Sandusky, Pennsylvania Academy of Family Physicians
* Amy Wolaver, Dept of Economics, Bucknell University

Healthcare reform is coming in 2009.  This is a crucial time for all to
become informed and engaged in the issue.  This event is hosted by CSCC, an
all-volunteer grassroots organization that reaches out to connect, inform,
and encourage the Central Susquehanna Valley to participate in the
democratic process.

Please share this information with anyone who may be interested.  For more
information, visit our website at http://www.csccnow.org.

Cute Video about Life in L’Burg

A local friend, Earl Pickens, wrote this song, “Can I Turn on the Radio,” and made this video which has several L’Burg landmarks sprinkled throughout.

He is a hell of a unicyclist also.

“Can I Turn on the Radio?”
