Clearfield PA Elks Lodge #540 ,
   26th Annual High Country Arts Fair, July 13, 2014
Since 1989 the Clearfield PA Elks Lodge has presented their High Country Arts Fair in cooperation with the
Pennsylvania Department of Environmental Resources, the administrator of S.B. Elliott State Park, Penfield PA.
  Because the Fair is held on publicly owned land the proceeds must all go toward supporting
non-profit organizations in our area.

Several such organizations do their part in helping the Elks with the Fair each year and a total of Twenty-Six
are presented a distribution of the proceeds at a dinner held each October at the Clearfield Lodge.
Scroll down the page for a list of the benifiting associations.

Some 150 Craft Vendors and Artists also take part in the Fair and help attract the always large crowds.
Our guests are greeted by ( and pay their money to ) PER Gus Yeager while being serenaded by Lodge organist
Bob Guarino.  Actually you pay Gus only if you wish to have a famous Clearfield Elks P.E.R.Chicken Dinner -
admission to the grounds, browsing the many vendors and enjoying the entertainment is all free of charge.
A nice addition this year was the Art exhibit presented by the Susquehanna River Arts Council.

At one point in the afternoon PER Duane Berry suggested that I take some "Bird's Eye View" pictures from the second
floor of the Pennsylvania Center. He may have even mentioned my going out on the roof.  If so, that idea was quickly dismissed.  Only one of the windows would open which accounts for the muntins seen in the last two pictures.
The three pictures through the one operating window are "Grounds Left, Grounds Right, and Grounds Center"
