Written by Evan Blackwell, CJE

The borough of Clarks Summit, Pa., is celebrating its 100th anniversary this year and the town has begun planning festivities.

According to this article from the local newspaper, The Times-Tribune, the celebration will be a year-long event and local resident Dennis Martin has been on the hunt for artifacts about the town’s history, including old yearbooks.

The old yearbooks and other documents will be put on display at a mini-museum.

“People already know it’s a great place to live,” Martin told the newspaper. “Now we want to give them a little bit of the history.”
