Where is Connellsville headed? We think in the right direction.

This week, the Daily Courier's special series “The Way We Were ... Where We're Headed” concluded. The series contained stories from people who grew up in Connellsville, beginning in the 1930s. These residents shared their memories of their hometown of which they are proud. They remembered the days when stores lined the streets and shoppers crowded the downtown area.

They also recalled some bleak times in the city's history. But those times are learning experiences — ones from which Connellsville can grow.

We talked to residents who moved away from our city, only to return. And while the city may not be the same as when they left, they all believe in what Connellsville can be.

And they all believe change is on the horizon.

We hope so. We believe so. We've already seen some glimpses.

The Allegheny Passage is bringing more people into Connellsville. A hotel is being planned in the city. Citizens are volunteering, working together and cleaning up Connellsville.

There is new hope in the new generation of Connellsville.

Let's keep this hope strong. Let's keep working together. Let's make Connellsville a place to be proud of.
