Buy Fresh Comes to Cameron County

Cameron County Chamber of Commerce is excited to announce that a local farmer has taken up the challenge to set up a stand in Emporium and sell fresh produce!  Uhl 4-Star Farm from Kersey will sell peppers, potatoes, tomatoes, cucumbers, zucchini and sweet corn all raised on their farm in Kersey. 
 “For years folks living in Cameron County have asked why we don’t have a centralized location where farmers could set up a stand, starting this Saturday, August 24 we do,” explained executive director Tina Johns Solak.  The location next to the chamber will be convenient for those wishing to walk.  Parking on the street is also available.  The price is just .05 per half hour. 
 Uhl 4-Star Farm is family owned and operated.  They participate in various farmers markets in communities in Elk County.  This is their first visit to Cameron County.

An opportunity to learn a new artform is coming up Thursday or Friday at the chamber office.  Artist Mary Wise will teach Zentangle which is a form of doodling where shapes are filled in with designs.  Students of any age will make a note card for the price of $5.00.  The class is offered Thursday night 6-8:30pm or Friday morning 10am-noon.  To register call the chamber office at 814-486-4314.

Cameron County Chamber Promotes Preferred in PA


 
This week the Cameron County Chamber of Commerce received approval from the PA Department of Agriculture to use the PA Preferred Logo at the Artisan Center.  “Many of our items are made by Pennsylvania artists that grow or only use materials found in the state,” explained Executive Director, Tina Johns Solak. 
 
The program is used as a marketing tool to solicit orders from those looking to only feature items made in the United States.  Artists at the center are being asked to apply for the status.  Johns Solak hopes to see Karen Vasko, who makes butters using fruit grown in Cameron County, Nelson Haas and Marilyn Erickson who make walking sticks from those gathered in the county and Teresa Genaux who spins alpaca fleece into yarn and knits items to all be PA Preferred in the next few months. 
Anyone wanting more information on the program can find it on the internet:  www.papreferred.com.

You Asked for it Now Come and Get It

For years residents in Emporium have stopped in the Cameron County Chamber of Commerce office and reminisced about the shopping that once filled Fourth Street.  This week the chamber launches a new campaign calling Emporium the land of endless gifts!
 
“Within one block there are eight  retail stores featuring gifts.  If you can’t find a gift in one of those stores, then you should consider a gift certificate,” says Cameron County Chamber of Commerce Executive Director Tina Johns Solak. 
 
Two stores have opened this month, Wheaton Gun Supply carries hunting licenses, guns, ammunition and fishing supplies plus outdoor clothing.  The other new store is Sweet Scentsations featuring home decorating items, but also chocolates, and infant clothing. 
 
They join established stores like Reids Hometown Emporium which is a RadioShack dealer and offers electronic toys and gadgets.  Cappy’s Clothes carries Red Raider Football fan gear and handmade dish cloths among wool socks, scarves, plus men and womens clothing.  Emporium Pharmacy is your headquarters for Melissa and Doug wooden toys, picture frames, unique holiday decorations and at Christmas features an entire room devoted to Christmas items. 
 
 The next store is Flowers N Things.  The name says it all, not only can you purchase fresh, silk, or dried flower arrangements, but stuffed animals, wall art and cards are also sold.  Copy Katz has food items from Potter County including maple syrup and mustard plus offer one of a kind imprinting on mugs, and shirts.  The chamber office is filled with unique artwork including jewelry, photographs, purses, and pottery. 
 
“This is quite a collection of stores and Emporium is very fortunate to have new stores opening their doors, when so many nearby towns are saying goodbye to local merchants,”  Johns Solak continues.  “The price of parking is among the lowest in the region and Emporium Borough Council usually approves free parking for the holiday shopping season starting in November through the end of December.”  Parking is available in front of the stores and the cost is one dime for one hour of parking. 
 

The merchants intend to use the slogan:  Emporium The Land of Endless Shopping through the busy holiday gift giving season.

Adopt a Duck Comes to Cameron County Fair


Cameron County Fireworks Committee is getting a jump start on fundraising for the 2014 fireworks.  The Firequacker 2014 is a duck derby that will be held Saturday October 19 in Emporium. 
Ducks are adopted and then the “adopted trainers” watch as their numbered duck races toward the finish line in South Park.  The first duck to cross the finish line wins $100.00, the second place finisher wins $75.00 and the third place winner takes home $50.00.
 Ducks will be available for adoption each night at the Cameron County Fair.  The price is $2.00 for one and a 6-quack can be adopted for $10.00.  Currently ducks may also be adopted at GE Motor coils, Emporium Pharmacy and the Cameron County Chamber of Commerce office.
 Organizers say the thunderous fireworks last month were heralded as some of the best in the region.  Fundraising to pay for the event is a year round adventure beginning with the Firequacker Duck Derby and including the Autumn Fest, Holiday House Tour, and Breakfast with the Easter Bunny.  Donations from organizations, businesses, attendees and private individuals allow the event to continue each year.
