I have subscribed to your magazine for several years. My wife and I live in Western PA but have had an interest in the Lewisburg area, going back many years. My family and I used to travel to Scranton to visit relatives, and before I-80 was completed across PA in 1970 we would take Route 45, among other “blue-line” routes. I just loved those car trips through Central PA back then. Fast forward several decades, and now my wife and I very much enjoy visiting Lewisburg, Mifflinburg and the surrounding area. We visit your area at least twice a year and have found your magazine to be helpful regarding restaurants, activities and changes in the area. We enjoy it very much and appreciate all the hard work that you obviously put into it.
My attention is drawn to any article about Little League. In 1939, I heard Carl Stotz talk to my dad about sponsoring one of the Little League teams. He did, and the “Stein” team helped start the league that is now so well known. It was so exciting to be part of that early program. No doubt that second-year team is pictured in the Little League museum [in South Williamsport]. I am still excited about that tremendous ministry.
Once again, thank-you so much for [Susquehanna Life] magazine. Although I don’t live in The Susquehanna Valley, your magazine makes me miss it that much less. The articles you have are hard to beat. My favorite articles are the ones on Native American history.
I saw [Susquehanna Life] magazine in my doctor’s office and found it very interesting. I did not grow up in this area but have been living here for several years. I found the articles very interesting and also learned some things. Thanks for a great magazine about our hometown and surrounding areas. It’s a great read.

I just read my summer issue and as always there are some great photos and copy. I thought I would add an idea. Fort Halifax was an appendage of Fort Augusta. The fort was also built in 1756 during the march to Shamokin. More info may be found at forthalifax.org. Again, great job on your publication!
