LOCK HAVEN — On Jan. 13, Pennsylvania Skill Charitable Giving donated $5,000 to the Michael Brookens, Todd Mellott and Michael Gardner Memorial Fund, an endowed fund with the Clinton County Community Foundation.
Created in 2017, by Jim Akeley, Kelli Gardner and Cheryl Seddon, the intention of this fund is to honor three men who were not only close friends, but also good stewards in their community.

Annually, the proceeds from this fund now benefit the Lock Haven YMCA swim program; the Central Mountain High School band program; and the Annie Halenbake Ross Library.
