Community

improvement

The Board of Directors of the Tidioute Area Health and Dental Center, Inc. (TAHDC, Inc.) voted on June 17 to go ahead with plans to make improvements to the parking area at the corner of Main and Buckingham Streets in Tidioute. In addition to constructing a driveway into the area, and a new sidewalk (on Main Street) to include the corner with proper handicap access, they have approved rebuilding the unstable bank area with concrete blocks in the back of the parking lot towards Northwest Savings Bank, leveling off the top of the area and putting a wall in place along Buckingham Street. In the area between the sidewalk and the wall there will be some type of plantings, and on the wall a “Tidioute” sign. The wall at the back of the lot toward the bank will be angled back in the front, and the portion of the wall at the upper corner will be low so as not to obstruct the view of vehicles coming around that corner.

It is estimated that approximately 2 to 3 parking spaces will be lost as a result of the improvements and that it will take approximately one month to complete, weather permitting.

TAHDC, Inc. has stated that they consider this Community Project because it will enhance and improve one of the main entryways into our town, When completed, the parking lot will be used by Staff at the Health Center during business hours, but available for use by the general public after business hours.

Election of officers was held at this same meeting with results as follows: Bob Schwab-President; Cindy Paulmier-Vice President; Carol Klingenburg-Secretary and Assistant Treasurer; Sandy Jamieson-Treasurer, and Board Members: Ken Nicholson, Walt Snavley, Rachael Watson, Sandi Ringel and Sharon Williams.

The current budget was reviewed and the proposed budget for the upcoming fiscal year was approved.

TAHDC, Inc. has already received some funding for this project, but are asking for additional donations to help offset the matching funds requirement. Anyone interested in helping to beautify and improve our community can make a donation with checks payable to “TAHDC, Inc.” and mail to TAHDC Inc., 52 Jefferson ST, Tidioute, PA 161351. All monies received will go towards the Parking Lot Project.

Senior Center

Pathstone Senior Community Service Employment Program was the main topic on Thursday at the Tidioute Senior Center.

David and Barb Winner presented a program to those present on those age 55 and older and unemployed on re-entering the work force.

Why hire an older worker? Experienced equals added value, qualified equals skilled labor, responsible equals work ethic, and talented equals diverse abilities.

All you need at the time of your appointment is your income verification such as your most current Social Security award letter, SSI, SSDI, access card, pension(s) benefits letter or statement, unemployment. Social Security card, identification card such as driver license or state issued identification. If you qualify, you will need your bank information for direct deposit. Bring your information just in case.

Hourly rate is $7.25 per hour for 15 hours a week. You get paid while you are interviewing for work.

At Pathstone they believe that achieving the American Dream is possible for everyone, regardless of age. It is their mission to promote pathways to economic, self-sufficiency for older individuals and their families who are working to achieve this dream.
