Vacant firehouse will become ‘Gathering Place’

by Cathleen Lathrop

SPECIAL TO THE ABINGTON SUBURBAN

“Imagine a dynamic gathering place, located in a thriving community that is filled with lively conversation, good food, creative energy, an entrepreneurial spirit and the embrace of the whole of its community.” That is the beginning of the proposal for The Gathering Place, a new community center encouraging the arts and education in Clarks Summit. The former Clarks Summit Firehouse, at 304 S. State St., has been vacant for nearly a decade. Located in the center of the town, a handful of Clarks Summit citizens have decided to transform the space into a community center. There, residents of the Abingtons and surrounding areas can come together for recreational and artistic programs. The building is by no means finished and there’s still a lot to be done, but Mary Ann Nichols and Dori Waters of Clarks Summit both saw the potential of the building. “We were looking for a location [for public community classes] and in 2012 we approached the Clarks Summit Borough Council to see if they would consider letting us use this space. We would do the work on it and we would raise the money,” said Waters, describing the beginning of the revival plans for the old firehouse. The Abington Area Community Classroom (AACC) is a committee of The Gathering Place. For years the group has hosted public classes in various locations. The renovation of the firehouse will mean a centralized location for their events. The Committee’s fall 2015 community class list has already been released on their website, and a handful of classes are scheduled to use the small portion of the building that is habitable for the first time this semester.

Members of The Community Classroom committee, during a planning meeting. From left: Emily Rancier, Paula Baillie, Trudy Montella, Anne Armerzzani and Grace Farrell. Other members of the committee include Sarah Dawgert, Judy Decarlo, Judy Griggs, Lindsey Hardy, Tracey Khalife, Mary Ann Nichols, Loren Selnzick, Dori Waters, Warren Watkins and Sue Wittmann.

Classes offered by the AAAC range from SAT information to dancing, and from learning a new language to finishing furniture. Dedicated to promoting social inclusion, organizers note that, of course, “the entire space will be accessible for those with diabilities. That’s important,” Waters said. More than just providing a place for classes from the AACC, The Gathering Place also plans to be the setting for a multitude of community and artistic events. Plans include having a coffee bar, an updated kitchen, a performance venue, hosting lecturers and providing an art co-op where artists can feature their work for a monthly fee. They’ll also have a satellite studio of the Verve Vertu Art Studio in Dallas. There, artists with special needs can create and sell their work. Many in the area are looking forward to a community-oriented building in a centralized location. “There’s so much support from the com-

munity,” Nichols said. “There’s a huge group behind us that love the project and support it. They don’t say no when you ask for help.” The Gathering Place will host their second annual fundraising event, The Twice-Admired Emporium, on Sunday, Oct. 25, 2-5 p.m. The fundraiser will be located at Clarks Summit Fire Co., 321 Bedford St. Admission is $15. The Twice-Admired Emporium will feature shopping through an upscale tag sale and browsing the innovative wares of repurposing vendors. Those attending the fundraiser will also have the opportunity to learn about home decorating design from experts while enjoying treats and music. You can donate art and home accessories to be sold at the Emporium. For drop-off information visit gatheringplaceCS.com. The Gathering Place is also collecting donations through its Brick by Brick fundraiser. The interior commemorative bricks can be purchased for $100 each on the website.

Green Scene: Spring Bloom

If you want to be surprised by an explosion of color at the end of this winter, you have to act soon. Unless you have planted perennial bulbs, the magnificent signs that spring has conquered winter will not simply appear in your landscape. This autumn, you can prevent “I wish I had planted” moments next spring. But there are some things to think about before you just rush out and plant a couple of tulips here and there. Many years ago, I did this for my mother as a present. I purchased several sets of four different tulips, and after measuring and marking evenly-spaced planting locations across the formal bed in front of my parents’ house, I carefully planted a series of diamond patterns: Red in front, white on right, etc. I could not wait until spring revealed my talent for design, and I expected to see my work year after year in a gift that would keep on giving. But in my youthful inexperience and vanity I failed. First, the four different tulips had different bloom times and different heights, neither of which had I taken into account in my planning. So instead of stunning diamonds of flowers, there were leafy “base paths,” each with a single “base-runner” bloom that changed locations throughout the spring. This was not a brilliant design worth preserving and, in contrast to my expectations, the design did not persist across the years. So, since tulips do not perennialize well, and since rodents find them appetizing, what did persist across the years was a series of incomplete diamonds with an occasional, random flower amid all the green-leafed bloomless tulip plants. What I had imagined would bring me glory and my mother delight had instead turned to curious shame. I should have planted daffodils! Daffodils are inedible to rodents and deer and perennialize well. In keeping with my experience, Colorblends, the supplier I use for our bulb plantings, recommends that gardeners start over every year with tulips: Let them bloom, and then put them in the trash! Colorblends explains that it is unlikely that your landscape can mimic either the climate of mountainous Central Asia where tulips are native, or cool, sandy Hol-

land, where tulips are commercially produced. Regardless of whether you choose the pale hues of the hardy daffodil or the fleeting brilliance of tulip, you should not plant little diamond formations like I did. Instead, plant your bulbs en masse, where the glory of the whole will exceed the wonder of the parts. Also, if you work with a bulb supplier, you can choose bulbs based on bloom time, whether you want a uniform burst of color or staggered bloom times and a prolonged show. So plant perennial bulbs before the ground freezes, and you will have even more reason to hope for spring. Reach me at josarhuap@aol.com.

Thanks for the Roast

Dear Editor, Hello hello! I am writing to express my gratitude to the Abington Business and Professional Association (ABPA), the community, my family and some of my so-called friends for the “honor” of being roasted. Somehow a great many people felt it was worthwhile to have a good laugh at my expense. The committee even put in many tedious hours digging and delving into my past in search of tidbits with which to torment me. Happily, they succeeded with great aplomb

Library Launches Financial Literacy Classes

Through its newest campaign, “Ideal Partners,” The Abington Community Library is showcasing how local partnerships benefit the library and, in turn, the community at large. This campaign follows the Pennsylvania Library Association’s (PaLA) 21st Century Literacies Initiative, “PA Forward.” With the right support, officials say, libraries are ideally positioned to become the community centers of information, technology and learning that will fuel educational and economic opportunity. This initiative focuses on five literacies: basic, civil and social, health, information and financial. The library has been highlighting each literacy through services and programs. Additionally, the campaign recognizes community partners who have dedicated their time, energy and support to establish themselves as “Ideal Partners” of the

Abington Community Library. Posters representing the five literacies showcasing the library’s “Ideal Partners,” are being released one at a time to be on display at the library. The original photography was done by Guy Cali of Guy Cali and Associates. Cali donated his time, talents and all materials to create the photos. The Abington Community Library supports financial literacy through programs and services for all ages such as “Right on the Money” classes for children, college planning workshops for high school students, and financial planning sessions for adults. Local banks have partnered with the library to provide materials and incentives for financial programming. Call the library at 570-587-3440 or visit lclshome.org/abington for more information. To become an “Ideal Partner” in the future, contact the director, Leah Ducato Rudolph.
