The Gathering Place invites the community to join the celebration of
“Bears in the Summit” project.


by Janet Gaglione

Have you seen a black bear in the Abingtons? Perhaps walking across your backyard or munching from your bird feeder?
Bears have become more commonplace in our community.

July 24th to the 31st we are celebrating the completion of our “Artful Bears” with a Mini-Festival complete with music, food, vendors and activities for the whole family. Take some time to enjoy all we have to offer. Click the bear to see our schedule.


In response to the pandemic and the need it has created in our community,
The Gathering Place, The First Presbyterian Church of Clarks Summit, and
Our Lady of Snows Church, in cooperation with the Clarks Summit Borough have created The Open Door Food Pantry. The pantry is located in the entryway to the 
Borough Building elevator on Spring St.

We are accepting donations at this time. If you have extra and want to help, the door is always open, the shelves are set up, just place your donations on the shelves.

 We invite you to follow our e-newsletter
that will try to keep
you informed of
events, classes and information.
Glide to the bottom of the page and sign up today.

Stay safe and healthy.
