Foundation Presents Grant for a New Memory Lab

John Eastman, Huntingdon County Foundation Treasurer and Trustee Phil Thompson presented a $1,170 check to the Huntingdon County Library to fund a memory lab project. The lab will allow community members to electronically store videos, photos and cassette tapes on a USB, external hard drive or in the cloud. This do-it-yourself station was inspired by the D.C.

Huntingdon Hometown Heroes Banners

In a ceremony held by the Huntingdon Borough, the new Hometown Heroes Banner project was unveiled. The Chamber has been working with the Borough and a committee of a few people on this project.

This project is a tribute to the soldiers from the Huntingdon Borough area who served or are serving our Country in a branch of the military. Each banner honors a specific individual and will be displayed on poles throughout Huntingdon Borough. The banners will be hung before Memorial Day and remain up until after Veteran's Day.

We are working on expanding this program to be county wide to recognize the individuals who have proudly served our Country.

If you're interested in purchasing a banner to be in Huntingdon Borough, please contact MacKenzie at or 814-643-1110.

Friends, Family and Constituents are invited to join Representative Rich Irvin and staff as they say farewell and congratulations to Gerry Wityk on her retirement.
