A big shout out also goes to the Dunn family who donated all of the corn, and to Mrs. Dunn and Mrs. Kellogg for their time and effort coordinating the event!

Junior High Football Gives Back

SWEDEN VALLEY — Todd Wetzel, Coudersport Junior High School football coach, and Ian Creech, assistant coach, felt it was a good idea one day for their team of seventh and eighth-graders to pay it forward by doing some community service.

And so, they collectively went into brainstorming mode, creating an event that will hopefully gain enough in popularity to take place four times a year.

The coaches’ idea was presented to the team and their parents with everyone in agreement.

Fill all of the birdfeeders at Sweden Valley Manor. But first, the parents had to pool some of their money together and buy birdseed.

And those players and parents happily obliged on Friday, Sept. 9.
