The 34th Annual Blueberry Festival will be held Friday and Saturday from 9 am to 4 pm both days with the pancake breakfast starting at 8 am.

CNG Celebration – Thursday, August 15
Northeastern Pennsylvania has some (if not all) of the most prolific natural gas wells in the Marcellus Shale play. As production increases, so do opportunities for students to take advantage of the upcoming careers associated with this clean-burning, abundant natural resource. From the new businesses using natural gas across the region to opportunities for residential usage, we’ll be gathering with the leaders of the natural gas movement and higher education institutes to discuss the promising future ahead for the region. By invitation only.
Dennis Farm Symposium – Thursday, September 12
Building on the success from the event held in Philadelphia at the end of February, a group of scholars, historians and public officials will be taking a walk back in time as they come to the Dennis Farm and learn more about its rich history in person. Susquehanna County has a rich African American history, including the First Presbyterian Church in Montrose which was at one time a stop on the Underground Railroad and the Center for Anti Slavery Studies which is located just next door. By invitation only.
Fall Sporting Clay Tournament – Friday, October 4
Our 2nd Annual Fall Sporting Clay Tournament will benefit St. Joseph’s Center which is based in Scranton. St. Joseph’s does great work around the northeast Pennsylvania community. Keep an eye out for more details in the near future!
