A group of Cameron County High School enrichment program students attended the 102nd Pennsylvania Farm Show in Harrisburg on a trip that was coordinated by Cameron County Outdoor Youth Activities (CCOYA).
It’s the largest indoor agricultural event in the nation, featuring nearly 6,000 animals, 10,000 competitive exhibits and 300 vendors.
Emporium Moose Lodge and Cameron County Vets Club, VFW Auxiliary and CCOYA provided financial support.
One exhibit of local interest was the Pennsylvania Woodmobile, which demonstrated how Pennsylvania’s abundant forest products are fashioned into items that are marketed around the world.
Pa. Lumber Heritage Region outreach coordinator Steve Manginell and Cameron County Commissioner Phil Jones met with students at the exhibit to explain some of Cameron County’s connections to the lumber industry.
