Great Summers Start at The Greater Scranton YMCA

Registration is open for Summer Day Camp at the Greater Scranton YMCA. The 2022Summer Day Camp Program will begin June 13th.

Day camp at the Y provides kids with adventure, healthy fun, personal growth and friendships that can take a so-so summer and turn it into a memory that lasts a lifetime. The Greater Scranton YMCA’s Summer Day Camp provides a welcoming environment for kids where they can belong, build relationships, develop character and discover their potential.

“The Greater Scranton YMCA believes all kids deserve the chance to experience summer camp,”said Trish Fisher, President & CEO, Greater Scranton YMCA. “From physical fitness to summer learning and from enrichment activities to social engagement, our summer day camp program provides opportunities for all children to learn, grow and thrive.As a charity, we turn no one away for an inability to pay and are proud to provide financial assistance to families in need.”

The Greater Scranton YMCA will incorporate summer learning into its Summer Day Camp Program through QUEST. As staying mentally engaged during the three-month educational gap is crucial to the continued academic development of students, QUEST was created to help bridge the gap between the end of one school year and the beginning of the next. Certified teachers cover science, math, reading comprehension and more through hands-on projects. The program is offered to summer day campers in kindergarten through eighth grades and is integrated into their daily curriculum.

The Wright Center Opens New Primary Care Clinic

The Wright Center for Community Health recently made an important decision to expand its medical home into Covington Township, 260 Daleville Highway, part of the North Pocono School District. Our new primary care practice is the ninth in our network of clinics, providing family medicine services to children and family members of all ages. You can see us for sick visits, routine examinations and screenings, substance use disorder services and the treatment of any illnesses or injuries that do not require a trip to the emergency room. Our first day for office visits is Monday, April 25.

Our clinics remain true to our mission of improving access and removing barriers to high-quality health care that cover the lifespan, from pediatric to geriatric care. Together, our providers serve under-resourced communities, such as rural areas and historically neglected city neighborhoods, and vulnerable populations, including individuals who are experiencing homelessness, who cope with substance use disorder and behavioral health issues or who otherwise confront barriers to proper care whether it be due to geography, linguistics or affordability. Our compassionate care teams help you improve your health for your body and mind.

The Wright Center falls under the umbrella of a national Federally Qualified Health Center Look-Alike. That designation as a safety-net community health center enables us to address health disparities at an affordable price. We are one of more than 14,500 national community health center sites that care for almost 29 million people, including the more than 47,000 unique patients we treat annually.

Our sliding-fee discount program ensures our primary care services are affordable for individuals and family members who qualify based on the size of their family and income-eligibility guidelines. We treat patients of all ages and insurance statuses, including those who use

Medicaid, medical assistance and are underinsured or uninsured. As a matter of policy and mission, The Wright Center will not deny service to anyone because of an inability to pay.

Amanda Turoni, a clinician at the new primary care site in Covington Township.

We may be the newest health care provider in your community, but The Wright Center has almost 50 years of experience being a patient-centered community health center in Lackawanna, Luzerne and Wayne counties. Our model enables us to deliver affordable and comprehensive primary and preventive services that reduce health disparities by emphasizing care management of patients with multiple health care needs.

Our Alzheimer’s and Dementia Care program, for example, offers a wide range of supportive services to improve the quality of life for individuals with dementia and their caregivers, which includes medication management, home safety tips and support groups.

In 2016, we established the state-designated Opioid Use Disorder Center of Excellence in response to the nation’s opioid crisis. Board-certified addiction medicine physicians, certified recovery specialists and other medical professionals provide physical and behavioral health services to help those in recovery reshape their lives on an outpatient basis. One of our most successful initiatives is the Healthy Maternal Opiate Medical Support program, known simply as Healthy MOMS. More than 167 babies have been born to women enrolled in this two-generation model that aims to help women overcome addiction and embrace a life in recovery.

The Ryan White HIV and Infectious Disease Clinic in Scranton has been serving our region for more than 20 years. It provides comprehensive services, including prevention, testing and treatment, for people living with or at risk for HIV/AIDS and hepatitis C.

Specialized programs include our lifestyle medicine program that emphasizes subtle changes in the way our patients live their lives, addressing nutrition, exercise, sleep, stress management and more to treat and potentially reverse chronic disease and prevent illness, such as diabetes and hypertension.

To complement our services overall, we offer the Wright Center for Patient & Community Engagement, a subsidiary that engages in the delivery, enhancement and transformation of primary health care services for populations of special interest in the community. It focuses on local partnerships and programs that assess negative social and economic determinants of health, such as poor access to education, employment status, and food and housing insecurity that can affect a person’s health and welfare.

We look forward to meeting you and caring for your family, as we work to become a vital member of your beautiful community. Please call us at 570-591-5150 if you have any questions.

Area students in grades 5-12 may participate in the University’s Earth Day Essay Contest. Submissions will be accepted through April 4. This year’s theme is “We Are All Connected.” For submission rules and details, visit:

Winners of the essay contest will be announced at the Evening of Environmental on Wednesday, April 20, in the Atrium of the Loyola Science Center on campus. The event takes place from 6 p.m. to 8 p.m. and features interactive science experiments run by University students. The event will also include a display of the essays submitted. Finalists will receive Earth Day medals and certificates at a ceremony.

On the following day, April 21, the University will host a lecture by renowned American climatologist and geophysicist Michael Mann, Ph.D., author of “The New Climate War: The Fight to Take Back Our Planet.” Dr. Mann is the Distinguished Professor of Atmospheric Science at Pennsylvania State University, with joint appointments in the Department of Geosciences and the Earth and Environmental Systems Institute.

Immigrants Stories to be Presented in “80 Minutes Around the World”

The Misericordia University College of Arts and Sciences will present “80 Minutes Around the World,” a once-in-a-lifetime event that takes audience members on an 80-minute trip around five continents as eight storytellers each share their immigration experiences. The storytellers come from around the United States with families connecting back to Guatemala, Philippines, Greece, Eritrea, Argentina, Laos, Canada, Turkey, and Poland. The show combines award-winning performers including Nestor Gomez (show creator), Adam Wade (Magnet Theater, NYC) and John Gebretatose (HUGE Theater, Minneapolis) with regional and local storytellers who are first- and second-generation immigrants and refugees.

The show will tour through Luzerne and Lackawanna counties with performances at Misericordia University’s Lemmond Theatre on April 28 at 7:30 p.m. and April 29 at 12:30 p.m., the F.M. Kirby Center on April 29 at 7:30 p.m., and the Scranton Cultural Center on April 30 at 7:30 p.m. All shows are free and open to the public.

This show is the culmination of The Voices Project: Immigration, a year-long visual and storytelling arts project conducted at Misericordia University. Over the past eight months, over 50 students at Misericordia University interviewed first and second-generation immigrants, refugees and DACA recipients and created stories based on the immigration experiences of their interviewees. These students participated in classes with Alicia Nordstrom, Ph.D., professor and chairperson of the psychology department; Allan Austin, Ph.D., professor of history and Patrick Hamilton, Ph.D., professor and chairperson of the English department, to examine the topic of immigration from psychological, historical, and literary perspectives. The project kicked off with an art exhibit called Voices: Immigration curated by Laine Little, the Director of the Pauly Friedman Art Gallery, which displayed visual, graphic, and sculptural works from six immigrant artists, one of whom will be sharing his story and hosting a pop-up art exhibit at the April show.

The show is supported by grants from the Lackawanna Arts Council, the Soyka Funds for the Humanities, and the Misericordia University College of Arts and Sciences. For more information, email Alicia Nordstrom at or 570-674-8008. You can learn about previous versions of The Voices Project at and follow show information on social media at #MUVoices project and

PennDOT Announces Online Plans Display for Project in Luzerne County

The Pennsylvania Department of Transportation (PennDOT) invites the public to both an in-person and online plans display for the SR 1050, Section 351 Bridge Project over Toby Creek in Kingston Township, Luzerne County.

This project involves the SR 1050, Section 351 Bridge over Toby Creek in Kingston Township, Luzerne County.  The project is located in a rural residential setting immediately adjacent to the southbound travel lanes of SR 309 in Kingstown Township midway between Luzerne and Trucksville. There are no bicycle or pedestrian facilities within the project area.

This project was originally scoped by PennDOT in 2016 as a deck replacement, but later changed to a full superstructure replacement based on the results of a 2018 bridge inspection. Currently, there are three alternatives being considered for the project. These alternatives include removal of existing bridge and providing a new access road from Hillside Rd., removing (and not replacing) the existing bridge, and rehabilitating the existing bridge by way of replacing the superstructure.  These alternatives will be evaluated as part of the environmental review process and in consultation with the local property owners and other interested parties.

The purpose of the plans displays is to introduce the project and receive public input regarding the alternatives being considered.  It is also an opportunity for the public to review and comment on the project’s potential effect upon Cultural Resources pursuant to the Advisory Council on Historic Preservation’s 36 CFR Part 800 regulations implementing Section 106 of the National Historic Preservation Act. 

The plans display will be held in-person and online. The in-person plans display for the SR 1050, Section 351 Bridge Project over Toby Creek will be held on April 25, 2022 at the Kingston Township Municipal Building located at 180 East Center Street, Shavertown, PA 18708.  The in-person plans display will be available between 4:00 PM and 6:00 PM.  The digital version of the plans display will be available from March 25, 2022 to May 25, 2022. Online information, including the alternatives being considered and a public comment form, can be found by visiting the following PennDOT District 4-0 website:
