Mifflinburg plans party for Go Joe 16
SHAMOKIN – WNEP meteorologist Joe Snedeker continues to bike through our area, raising money for the St. Joseph’s Center in Scranton.
After stopping in Shamokin Tuesday night, Snedeker will begin Wednesday (today) by going to Elysburg, through Bloomsburg, Danville, Sunbury, Selinsgrove, Middleburg and ending the day in Mifflinburg. Mifflinburg mayor David Cooney says there is a festival in Joe’s honor. “We have all kinds of kid-friendly activities as well as refreshments. I am also told there may be other surprise Channel 16 guests in tow when Joe arrives.”
Cooney says Mifflinburg is pleased to have Snedeker back to their town. “When I spoke to the folks at Channel 16, they told me that Mifflinburg gave Joe one of the finest welcomes in past years and we are really glad to have him here.”
The festival will be held at the Mifflinburg Community Park between 4:00p.m.-7:00p.m. and Snedeker is expected to arrive between those times. All are invited to attend and Cooney says it also gives people a chance, following the festival, to go over to the second night of the Mifflinburg Fireman’s Carnival nearby. (Sara Bartlett)
