The Mary E. Shaner Scholarships for 2011 were recently awarded; and they went to Katie Kohlenberg who plans to attend Clarion University, Bryan Botts who plans to attend Clarion University, and James Gillen who plans to attend Penn State Erie, The Behrend College.

In the photograph, from left to right, are Katie Kohlenberg, KHS Principal Vicky Walters, Bryan Botts, and James Gillen.

Mary E. Shaner was a life time resident of the Knox area.  Her career was spent first in local classrooms, and then as librarian at Keystone High School, Knox PA.  A bequest in her will established the scholarship fund at Keystone that bears her name, entrusted to the Clarion County Community Foundation, an affiliate of Bridge Builders Community Foundations.  Charles Marlin

The best news since moveable type has come to the Knox Public Library.  With cuts in state aid a yearly event, there is not a public library in Clarion County that is not starved for good news.  This is better news than all delinquent borrowers returning their overdue books and paying their full fines.

An anonymous donor has through the services of Clarion University Foundation given $120,000 to the library to help them relocate to their own building.  The library board in response, negotiated with the Clarion Forest VNA and have an agreement to purchase the current office building of the Clarion Forest VNA for $65,000.

Clarion Forest VNA will move to be close to the Clarion Hospital in Monroe Township.  The Knox Public Library will move down Main Street to their first stand alone building.

This is a wonderful move for the library, but for it to succeed and also expand services, the Knox community has to step forward in mass and give as they have never given before.  The building needs upgrades, and as everyone knows, owning your own home does not come cheap.  There are new yearly expenses.  There are emergencies.  There are costs to looking loved and well cared for.

You have hopefully already responded to the library’s yearly letter asking for support.  Expect more appeals for support.  Please don’t think of them as a burden because they are first and foremost an opportunity to build your community.

If you decide you would like to make a bequest in your will to create an endowed fund for the Knox Public Library, then the Clarion County Community Foundation are the people for you to talk to.  We are a Commonwealth chartered nonprofit authorized to serve as trustee for community endowments.  We protect and grow those endowments in perpetuity.

When a fund contract is signed by CCCF and you, your family, or your executor, you know with certainty your wishes will be followed as to purpose and administration of your endowment.

You may contact the CCCF President Dr. Jerry Belloit, home (814) 227-2673, or cell (814) 221-5537; or our Interim Executive Director Dr. Bill Kaufman, home (814) 226-8216, CELL (814) 229-8622; or call me at (814) 797-2233.  Charles Marlin
