Blossburg V.I.B.E. to Create Vision Statement, Action Plan

BLOSSBURG, May 21 -- Residents of Blossburg and surrounding communities will gather to create a vision for Blossburg's future two evenings in June at the Blossburg Memorial Library.

Blossburg V.I.B.E. members have invited anyone who lives, works, plays or attends school in Blossburg, especially residents of Blossburg Borough and Bloss and Hamilton townships, the primary users of Blossburg's downtown.
