Earth Day at Mill Cove 2018
The 7th annual Earth Day event at Mill Cove in Mansfield attracted people of all ages. With bird walks, falconry demonstrations, zip lining, energy exhibits, marshmallow archery, recycling crafts, children’s games, food and local vendors there was something for everyone.

Ever since it’s conception in 1970, Earth Day has been bringing people together from all walks of life to promote awareness and inspire change. It is a day celebrated by over 1 billion people in 193 countries in what is the largest civic-focused day of action in the world.
Friends of Mansfield Library Book Sale
The Friends of the Mansfield Free Public Library book sale started Monday April 23rd at the First Presbyterian church on East Wellsboro Street in Mansfield. The church social hall is jam packed with books of all genres.

In just three hours, with the help of over 30 volunteers, the books, games, and puzzles were displayed on tables and labeled designating the genre. The doors opened at 10 am with a line nearly reaching the sidewalk. The volunteers have honed a remarkable system to assist patrons. I was surprised and impressed with how many boxes, bags and arm loads of books were sold in the first hour. Don’t worry, if you can’t get there until later in the week, they still have boxes of books that wouldn’t fit on the tables. Stop in everyday to see what is being added. Summer is almost here, grab those books for taking to the beach, pool, our relaxing in the hammock.
Rotary hosts Candidates’ Forum
On Tuesday, April 24 – the Rotary Club of Wellsboro hosted a forum for three of the candidates running for State Representative of the 68th Legislative District. The event took place at the Deane Center in Wellsboro. Coordinator for Rotary, Jim Tutak opened the forum, and the candidates were introduced: Republican candidate Dennis Weaver, Republican candidate Clint Owlett, and Democratic candidate Carrie Heath. Questions from the community were presented by moderator Phil Waber, and each candidate was given 3 minutes to respond. Home Page cameras were there to highlight a few of the questions.
Wesneski heading to Lycoming College
North Penn-Mansfield senior Dylan Wesneski announced he will continue his football career this upcoming fall at Division 3 Lycoming College on Tuesday, April 24.

Wesneski picked Lycoming for its location.

“It’s close to my home and my parents can come to my games.”

Wesneski has also visited the campus and interacted with the team a handful of times prior to making his decision.
Movin’ Together 2018 – Time Out!
Scheduling regular times for self-care is a key part of a healthy lifestyle. This is why the Movin’ Together tool for the month of April is called “Time Out, Stress Less!” There are many ways to take a time out. Exploring hobbies, interests, and quiet time activities can significantly enrich our lives. In this feature we focus on taking time out for self-care, specifically in the form of hair care. Sara visited Courtney Killian at her “Charisma by Courtney” salon, in Troy, to find out more about proper hair care.
