“Do the impossible,” must have been the command given to start many of the projects shown on a Bell System special, “It Couldn’t Be Done.”
One such project was the observatory at Green Bank. See it on the NBC TV program, along with the Erie Canal and the Golden Gate Bridge…

Dunmore Community Center
The Dunmore Community Center has been growing by leaps and bounds since July of 1969. At that time, the Dunmore Community Association voted to begin major improvements on the Center. Almost immediately, the partitions which had divided the main building into two rooms were torn down. Soon, new hardwood flooring was down and paneling was put on the walls. A little later, a chimney was built, and a new suspended ceiling and new lighting were installed. Many other improvements became noticeable: two ranges for the kitchen, new electrical wiring, an oil heating stove, to mention a few.
In January of this year, the annual membership meeting was held and a new Board of Directors took their seats: Cora Lee Wyatt, Albert Wilfong, Marvin Taylor, Kitty Smith, Anna Belle Schaffner, David Rittenhouse, Martha Lovelace, Ruth Horner, David Grimes, Madge Galford, Madeline Galford, Ben Galford, Everette Dilley, Jr., Mae Corbett and Bill Campbell…
Along with the snow that came to Back Mountain this past weekend came the birds to their feeding station in our yard. It is always a beautiful sight to see many different kinds of birds at one time. Our feeding station is hung in a Norway Spruce in our front yard just outside the living room window and has afforded our family many happy hours of bird watching during the winter. It is not uncommon for us to see ten or more different kinds of birds feeding at one time….
There is certainly much pleasure to be gained from the simple act of feeding the birds ~ Mrs. Allie Sheets
