 “The chamber is excited to provide a space for artists to teach and share their unique talents,” Solak continued. The needle felting class is limited to 15 students. Participants are to bring a four-inch egg shaped cookie cutter. A felting needle and all other supplies will be provided. 

 The cost is $20 and the class is open to all ages. Students will learn basic felting and adding stripes, zig zags and polka dots. Registration is available online on Facebook and Eventbrite or by calling or stopping at the chamber office.

The Bucktail Rod & Gun Club’s Youth Ice Fishing event in memory of Russell E. Rhoades Jr. Has Been Scheduled for February 5th.

Russell volunteered his time to help with the previous Youth Ice Fishing events. He had a big heart and always enjoyed seeing young people become more involved in outdoor activities.

 This event is for youth 17 and younger and accompanied by an adult. Youth under the age of 16 do not need to possess a 2022 fishing license. Adults who are helping a very young angler can bait the hook and drop the line, however Kids have to set the hook and reel the fish in. 

The event will begin at 10am and run until 2pm. 

Fishing can be continued by anyone who wishes to stay. The clubhouse will be open so everyone will have the chance to warn up throughout the day. Hot chocolate, coffee and Hot dogs will be available for all those who participate. 

The intention of this event is to introduce youth to ice fishing. 
All Pennsylvania Fish and Boat Commission regulations apply. 

The sponsors encourage you to bring your own equipment, however there will be volunteers on hand to provide basic instruction and allowing participating youth the opportunity to use their equipment. This event may be cancelled due to unsafe ice conditions or inclement weather. 

Please Register for the event by January 30, 2022. If you would like to register a youth or volunteer your time, please contact Taylor Gillette at (814) 562-0421 or via email

Cameron County’s Brown May Have Set D9 Boys Record in Win at Galeton, Pa.


Cameron County’s Brown Explodes for 60; May Have Set D9 Boys Record in Win at Galeton, Pa.

Cameron County’s Hayden Brown scored what could very well be a District 9 record 60 points in the Red Raiders 85-41 win at Galeton in NTL play.

“I was honestly shocked,” Brown said. “A good friend of mine came over and told our coach as we were shooting free throws that I was at 56, and I had the potential to get the (school record). I thought to myself, that is honestly crazy.”

Brown got off to a great start scoring 16 first-quarter points to help the Red Raiders to a 22-7 lead at the end of eight minutes.

“I was told I started the game with the first 14 or 16 points,” Brown said. “At that point, I thought ‘good start’. But, I have had games like that before and it kind of fizzled out.”

He then added seven more points in the second half o give him 23 at halftime.

That was just a prelude to a massive second half that saw Brown double his point total by scoring 23 third-quarter to give him 46 on the night. He then added 14 more in the fourth quarter while going 8 of 8 from the free-throw line in the frame.

“Coming into the third quarter, about halfway through, I realized I was really starting to score,” Brown said. “I thought for sure I would just start missing shots.”

The 60 points topped the previous Cameron County record of 56 scored in 1999 by Shane Goss.
