The Farm Museum at the Huntingdon County Fair has expanded with the completion of Geisinger Hall, a brand-new building funded by a donation from Geisinger.  As a healthcare leader in the community, Geisinger has supported the museum with a gift of $75,000. The new building allows the museum to expand on its mission to preserve memorabilia related to the agricultural heritage of Huntingdon County.  The museum is the second largest of its kind in Pennsylvania, next to the Farm Show.  The museum is managed by a committee of just over a dozen members, with volunteers ranging in age from 14-years-old to ninety-three.

 

Continuing Pennsylvania’s battle against litter as the summer travel season winds down, the Wolf Administration has highlighted agency efforts to clean up, and cut down on highway litter.  PennDOT crews across the state have expanded their routine litter pickup operations and enhanced cleanups will continue through Labor Day.  PennDOT spends roughly $14 million annually on statewide litter efforts. Department programs such as Adopt-A-Highway and Sponsor-A-Highway allow groups and businesses to sponsor cleanup and beautification on roadways across the Commonwealth.
