Country Blessings

Country Blessings has just had a makeover. If you have not had a chance to stop in and check it out, please stop by!
Lots of new goodies to check out! Large bags of cotton shop rags only $10!

We are open Wed-Fri from 9-5; offering a comfortable, warm atmosphere.

A large portion of the proceeds from Country Blessings go back into the community. Annually we have donated an average over $6000 to the needy of our community.

Country Blessings is located in the former East 4th Street School.


As we have breezed by Memorial Day and are now in June we see neighbors hanging flowering baskets, landscaping their yards and starting vegetable gardens. The growing season has officially begun.

As you travel through the downtown area you’ll see that the Emporium Garden Club has been busy filling the flower containers on 4th Street and beautifying the Brown Memorial Library as well as the Veterans’ Memorial Park located at Rt 120 and Airport Road. We also landscape at the Grove House, the Post Office, the Mini Park, the Cameron County Health Care Center, the triangle located at the intersections of Rt 120 and Rt 155 along with the atrium at the Guy & Mary Felt Manor.

In honor of National Garden Week the Emporium Garden Club members would like to invite you to a “Get to Know Us” in the conference room at the Brown Memorial Library from 1-3PM on June 10th. There will be light refreshments along with flower arranging demonstrations. We will also have 50 years of history to share with the community as we are celebrating being in existence for 50 years. Come and enjoy and maybe we have something to offer or inspire you to become a member.
We are planning a flower show this December in conjunction with “Weekend in the Wilds” in December so be watching for more details in the future.
On your way to the library be sure to check out the windows of the Christmas Store. Several members and friends have turned them into a gardening wonderland.

Memorial Day

Tell their story so they will not be forgotten.

Heckman Trucking expands its equipment because of a growing demand with Marcellus Shale drilling. Owner Gary Heckman says, “the brand new 45 metric ton crane is mounted on a tri-axle and will be used primarily on gas well sites for unloading materials and during the drilling operation.” The state of the art crane includes a remote control which can direct the crane safely from a distance.

Heckman Trucking has seen an increase in business as a direct result of drilling throughout Pennsylvania. Tractor trailer loads of supplies are hauled daily to drilling sites across the state.

Cameron County Executive Director, Tina Johns Lorson calls Heckman Trucking, “a prime example of a locally owned business seeing a need in the region and preparing to service that need.” Heckman Trucking has been in business since 1985.
