There are two signs of spring in Upper St. Clair. The first is Community Day and second is preparation for the Upper St. Clair Lions Farmers Market.
This year at Community Day we will introduce Scarlett a black lab female Leader Dog puppy. She will make her debut at the Lions booth and join us in the parade.
Scarlett will be the second Leader Dog puppy adopted by the Upper St. Clair Lions Club. She will be raised and trained by Sarah and Evan Strain. After a year’s basic training she will be returned to the Leader Dog training center in Rochester Michigan to complete the training required of a Leader Dog. The USC Lions have agreed to assist with veterinary bills and expenses while the Strains are giving Scarlet her basic training. The first dog, raised by Marielle Snyder, was Murphy who has gone back to Michigan to complete its training. Congratulations to Marielle, Sara and Evan for their caring and dedication.
Thursday May 31 will be the opening day of the USC Lions Third Annual Farmers Market. The hours are from four to seven every Thursday rain or shine. There will be approximately twenty-five local farmers with their usual high quality produce. There will be a special banner recognizing and thanking the vendors and patrons that have supported the market.
Please join us, meet your friends, and continue to support your local farmers.
