Clearfield PA Elks Lodge #540 ,
27th Annual High Country Arts Fair, July 12, 2015
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. The weather this year was as nice as anyone can remember.
Several such organizations do their part in helping the Elks with the Fair each year and about two dozen
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 Chicken Dinner money to John Troxell while PER Gus Yeager looks on.
Gus claims that he is barred by lodge rules from handling any of the money - just like at home.
Admission to the grounds, browsing the many vendors and enjoying the entertainment is all free of charge.
In past year's we were all serenaded by Lodge organist Bob Guarino who is no longer
with us but is fondly remembered and sincerely missed.
New last year and back again was the Art exhibit presented by the Susquehanna River Arts Council.
