Susquehanna County Dairy Day
On March 3, I attended the annual Susquehanna County Dairy Day, held at Elk Lake School. Dairy Day offers area dairy farmers not only a chance to get together to learn new things about their industry, but also offers a chance for the entire community to meet each March in what is most likely the largest gathering in the county. I was again happy to join my colleagues Senator Lisa Baker, PA State Rep. Tina Pickett & PA State Rep. Jonathan Fritz to provide a legislative update for attendees.
Annual Scholarship Challenge Held in Sayre
On March 4th, I attended the annual Scholarship Challenge in Sayre featuring area high school seniors from Pennsylvania’s Northern Tier and New York’s Southern Tier. Teams from 24 high schools competed in the Scholarship Challenge this year. The Towanda High School team came in second place on Saturday, taking home $1,000 for its school.
Congratulations to Towanda High School and all of this year’s participants.

Cold Water Boating Safety
During the winter and spring months, sudden cold water immersion triggers cold water shock. In water temperatures less than 70 degrees, involuntary gasping, hyperventilation, breathlessness, and reduced ability to control breathing and swimming occurs.
Pennsylvania’s boating safety requirements include a mandatory life jacket usage law in effect from November 1 through April 30. In addition, whether underway or at anchor, boaters on vessels less than 16 feet long, canoes or kayaks are required to wear U.S. Coast Guard approved personal flotation devices.
