November 18, 2008 - Venangoland, Citizens of the Year, and Linda Henderson

While I was not blogging last week, Pete Greene was hard at work over at Venangoland with posts on, among other things life without TV and some video footage of the Silver Cornet Band.

The deadline for submitting a nomination for the Venango Area Chamber of Commerce Citizen of the Year has been extended to Monday, December 1, 2008.
