On Monday September 9, 2019 I was privileged to attend the Chamber of Business and Industry Centre County's luncheon. The 3 Centre County Commisioners addressed the growth of the Centre area. Attendees heard about county activities, initiatives, and heard an update on county affairs from county commissioners Mark Higgins, Chairman Michael Pipe, & Steve Dershem. Approximately 225 individuals attended and had the opportunity to learn the state of affairs and had opportunities to ask questions. I distributed information to attendees on emergency preparedness since September has been declared Emergency Preparedness Month.
