The Hygrade Inn

If you have driven down Main street Emporium within the last year, no doubt you have been watching the transformation of a certain home at 212 East Fourth Street. Built in 1880, the home was once owned by a founder of Sylvania, originally Hygrade Sylvania. This beautiful residence has changed hands over the years and has been renovated into a beautiful bed and breakfast inn.


The Hygrade Inn website is now online. Additional photos will be added as the Hygrade Inn is still in transition. There has been many requests to access the online reservation system and it is now easier than ever to make reservations for stays after November 1 2018. 

RESERVE THOSE HOLIDAYS! 

We hope to see you soon.


Rotary News


Pat Kempher, President of the Cameron County Fair Association, was the guest speaker at the Rotary luncheon meeting July 10th. Pat spoke of the history of the fair and stated that “the Cameron County Fair is the smallest out of 114 fairs statewide.” 

 The mission of the fair is to educate the public about agriculture by showcasing people’s products. Our local fair was started in 1901 by the Cameron County Agricultural Association and was held at Keystone Park up on Keystone Manor. In 1917 there was a county wide flu epidemic and the fair didn’t start up again until 1967 when the Jaycees organized the fair at the Pine Street Field. In 1971, Henry Zimmer, leased the grounds to the Fair Association on Route 46 where it is held today. Pat gave may thanks to the Emporium Foundation who has helped them financially over the years, and to the public for their support in making the fair a success each year. The Parade of Stars is also a fundraiser of the association where they raise funds and give a scholarship of $250.00 each year. This year’s recipient was Alex Umble. The fair will be held August 5-11th, gates open at 5:00 pm with many fun activities and events. Also pictured is Elyse Umble, last year’s Miss Junior Fair Queen and Rotarian, Steve Straub.

Joyce M. Lundberg


Joyce M. Lundberg, longtime resident of Emporium, died Saturday, June 30, 2018 at the age of 93. Joyce was born in Kane, Pa. on December 26, 1924 to Mabel and Stuart Magnuson. She moved to Emporium with her parents at the age of 5 and graduated from Emporium High School in 1942. Upon graduating from Bryant & Stratton Business College, she worked as an accountant/secretary to help put her husband, Edward, through Pharmacy School. She then continued using her business skills at Burklund and Lundberg Pharmacy where she thrived on working with the public.

She married the love of her life, Edward Lundberg, on May 25, 1946 and they were devoted to one another for 71 years. Even in the last few years of their married life when they took residency at the Felt Manor Personal Care Home, they never left each other’s side.

Joyce was well known in the community, serving Cameron County in many facets. She was a very active member in the Cameron County Arts, Cameron County Historical Society, and the Order of Eastern Star Emporium Chapter 101. She served as president of the Ladies Auxiliary of Emporium Country Club, as treasurer of the Cameron County Cardiac Committee for 35 years, and was one of the first waitresses of the Cabin Kitchen. Joyce was proud to be the oldest member of her church family, the First United Methodist Church of Emporium.

She was an avid bridge player and golfer and enjoyed being a part of the ECC Ladies Golf and Bridge Clubs. She found pleasure in teaching her grandkids some of her favorite cards games and taking them out on the course to play a few rounds of golf.

Joyce valued being around members of the community whether it would be conversing with people at the local grocery store or working with her customers in selecting the best piece of jewelry or the perfect gift. In short, Joyce found joy in people.

Joyce’s love of Hollywood films and big band music influenced her to be a star actress in the Emporium Players, Parade of Stars and the “Only Shows” where she won the audiences’ hearts. Joyce loved to “run” everywhere she went in town in her stylish high-heeled shoes, fashionable skirts, and one of a kind jewelry items and purses. Fast or very fast was her mode of movement whether it be walking or driving her white Cadillac.

Besides her husband, the focus of her love was her two sons, E. Craig Lundberg of Waltham, Mass. and A. Blair Lundberg (Linda) of Emporium, and her six grandchildren: Tom Lundberg (Courtney), Adam Lundberg, Michael Lundberg (Allison), Krista LeZotte (Darin), Brittany Lundberg, Jonathan Lundberg; and one great granddaughter, Karina Lundberg.

Joyce was a devoted mother and grandmother who attended all of her children and grandchildren’s extracurricular and sporting activities. She was their biggest cheerleader and a devoted ego booster to each and every one of them.

Joyce’s funeral service will be held at the First United Methodist Church in Emporium on Saturday, July 21, 2018 at 11:00 a.m. with a video tribute and a luncheon to follow for friends and family. The Rev. Joseph Short, pastor, will officiate. There will be no visitation.

Memorials contributions may be made to the First United Methodist Church, 306 S Spruce St., or an organization of the donor’s choice.

Arrangements are under the direction of the Coppersmith-Condon Funeral Home, Emporium.

Philip Dean Whiting

Philip Dean Whiting, 85, of Jacksonville passed away on Saturday, July 7, 2018. Phil was the 6th of 10 children born to Harry A. and Grace Swackhammer Whiting of Sterling Run, Pennsylvania. 

Phil and his four brothers all honorably served their country spanning World War II through Vietnam. Phil served 21 years in the USAF. He was selected for language training at the University of Indiana, which resulted in an assignment as a Hungarian linguist during the Cold War. Phil’s skills as a linguist resulted in location to Army bases as well as Air Force Bases. Assignments included locations such as Bad Soden and Munich. A brief interval back in the US saw a stint at Ft. Belvoir, Virginia. In 1962, he was assigned to a unit in Munich, Germany, and later, the United States Military Liaison Mission in Potsdam then in East Germany.

Phil lived his life with joy and great energy. Always an avid outdoorsman, he grew up hunting and fishing in Pennsylvania, and continued those activities into his retirement years. After his family, golf was perhaps his greatest love, and he passed his love of golf as a legacy to his children and grandchildren.

Weekend in the Wilds Winners


Weekend in the Wilds Winners

Each box for Weekend in the Wilds held Friday and Saturday earned check marks! Weather-check, vendors-check, food-check, crowd-check, Firequacker Duck Derby-check, Stargazing-check and fireworks-check!

According to Cameron County Chamber of Commerce Executive Director Tina Solak the winners were the people who attended plus some lucky ducks from the Firequacker Duck Derby. This year that event was held on North Broad Street in Emporium. “Thanks to the fire department and Emporium Water Company, we were able to flood a portion of the street and et the ducks race to the finish line. It created a spectacle for the spectators!”

The first duck to reach the pool noodle finish line adopted by Jane Laird from Emporium. Frank Zito from Georgia took time from a family reunion to train his duck to a second place finish and 7 year old Cole Motchenbaugh visiting from Allison Park talked his duck into third place. They received $100, $75 and $50.

The fireworks blasted off following a presentation by the Cameron County Memorial Detail at the Cameron County High School Football Stadium. The nearly 30-minute show brought oohs and ahs from the crowd. The 50/50 paid $380 to Jody Reid from Emporium who had the lucky ticket.

Mountaineer Search & Rescue report that a Big Foot was not returned. Anyone with information on the missing foot can anonymously contact the chamber or bring it to the chamber with no questions asked. The winner of the Big Foot Calling Contest was Cameron County Fair Queen Lia Inman. She performed the perfect Danger, Location and Mating Calls according to judges.

Plans are underway for the 2019 version of Weekend in the Wilds to be held July 5 & 6. Solak says numerous people have asked for a 5k run on the West Creek Rail Trail. She is now looking for a group wanting to raise money to host the event.

Chad Anton Schatz


Chad Anton Schatz of 611 Purdy Road, Dalton, PA, formerly of Rich Valley Road, Emporium, PA, died at his residence on Monday, July 2, 2018. Chad was born July 11, 1988, in Warren, PA, the son of Randy and Karin Nelson Schatz, Emporium. On August 21, 2017, he married Archer Jesse Schatz who survives.

To a statistician, Chad could be remembered as one of the roughly 650 Americans who die each week from opioid-related overdose. But to his family and friends, Chad will always be remembered as a loveable teddy-bear of a man, a gentle giant who was humble, tender-hearted, and trusting. Chad took great joy in pleasing other people, whether it was in making them laugh, sharing what he had, or using his brute strength to help in physical labor. He was a hard worker and a loyal friend. He also was a man who wanted to protect those he loved and who stood up for the underdog. Chad most enjoyed being with his family, playing with his nephews, hunting, fishing, hiking, and sitting around campfires with family and friends. One cannot reflect on Chad’s life without recalling that he was a great athlete and that he absolutely loved little kids! 

In addition to his wife and parents, Chad will be loved, missed, and remembered by a brother, Randy Schatz, two sisters, Shalynn Schatz and Amily Schatz, two nephews, Cage and Cayden, all of Emporium; maternal grandmother, Bella “Nana” Nelson of Kane, paternal grandparents, David and Donna Schatz of St. Marys, and several aunts, uncles, and cousins.

 Chad was preceded in death by his much beloved maternal grandfather, Floyd “Papa” Nelson.

 A memorial gathering will be held at the Cameron County Fairgrounds, Route 46, Emporium, PA on Sunday, July 15, 2018 at 5:00 p.m..

 The Rev. Lionel Owen, Pastor of Emporium Alliance Church, will officiate. 

 Visitation with the family will follow the service.

 In lieu of flowers, donations toward the funeral expenses will be gratefully accepted.

From their indescribable grief, the family offers this: “Ignoring what ended Chad’s short life on this earth would be a tragedy and we want no effort spared in helping others battling addiction.”

Applicants must be in good physical condition and willing to accept military type discipline.
