Chili Bowl

This event has been canceled for 2021.

The Chili Bowl in Clearfield is held at the Expo II Building at the Clearfield Driving Park/Clearfield Fairgrounds. Come to taste or bring your best chili to this annual event. Categories include restaurants, churches, physicians and emergency responders, and all others. If you can't cook, sponsor a table and its chef. There are theme basket raffles and door prizes. All of this benefits hospice for the Clearfield area patients who may not have funds to cover costs for items outside of their insurance coverage. This year's theme is "Celebrating Country Music".

Tree of Doves

The Tree of Doves 2021 Campaign is held during the Christmas season: Remember or honor someone special with a dove ornament.

Donors will receive a dove to hang on your family's tree, to be displayed throughout the giving season in remembrance of the time you shared with them. Personal stories are so powerful, share them with each other and let their spirits shine.

The doves are color coded with white for memorial and red in honor of someone. Donors may ask for the American flag to be placed on the dove of a veteran or first responder.

For more information, call MaryLou Wehler at 814-788-8002.

Hundreds of butterflies will be released at this event, to benefit the Penn Highlands Healthcare at Home Hospice program. The butterflies are sponsored to honor and remember loved ones. When released, some butterflies flutter away immediately, while many others delight the crowd by staying to rest on hands, shoulders and nearby flowers and bushes. The event will also include inspirational readings and the reading of names. Individuals who are able to attend will have the option to release their own butterfly during the group release at each event. It is not necessary to sponsor a butterfly to attend this special event. All are encouraged to gather and join the celebration of remembrance.

Butterflies are available for purchase for $15 each. Please print the order form, and mail it, along with a check payable to: Penn Highlands Healthcare at Home, Attn: Mary Lou, 757 Johnsonburg Road, Suite 200, St. Marys, PA 15857-3497
