Mark your calendars: A busy weekend in Connellsville
We've said it many times — things are happening in Connellsville, and next weekend is no exception.
On May 10, we encourage residents to stop downtown during what promises to be a busy day.
The city will celebrate Train Day, the opening of the Connellsville Canteen Coffee Shop and Harry Clark's Indian Creek Valley Railroad Display. The project is intended to preserve several important elements of our city's history. We believe the railroad display/canteen is an important part of the city's revitalization.
Down the road a little, Connellsville Area Community Ministries will celebrate its 40th anniversary. This nonprofit organization provides much for needy residents in our area, including clothes, furniture, food and various programs.
And on Saturday night, New Haven Hose Co. will host its first-ever Neon Nights 5K race. This event will help our volunteer fire department raise money to cover its operation costs.
New Haven Hose Co. and its volunteers go far beyond firefighting. The department sponsors many community events, including the Halloween parade. They keep the Christmas lights updated and place American flags during patriotic holidays — to cite just a few of their activities.
Local support for all these Connellsville organizations is important. So get out on May 10 and show your city pride.
