In 1988, Lucille Gale Knapp established the William & L.R. Gale Community Foundation to honor the memory of her father L. R. Gale and grandfather William Gale. The Gale family came to the Pine Creek Valley in 1880 and built the largest sole leather tannery in the U.S. at the junction of Pine Creek and West Branch. The tannery employed over 200 people and was the life blood of the community for over 50 years.
The Foundation has been approved to award scholarships to Galeton Area High School Seniors meeting the above criteria. In past years, the foundation has supported Galeton area charitable organizations with many of their community projects and plans to continue to do so in addition to funding the scholarship program. The Foundation is a 501(c)(3) organization and welcomes contributions to grow the fund to help assist charitable organizations in the Galeton area and provide scholarships for Galeton high school seniors.
Beginning this year, in addition to the Galeton Foundation Scholarship, a local resident has established an annual, vocational scholarship to be administered under the umbrella of the Galeton Foundation in memory of Herman and Berta Robbins. Applications and further information about the Herman and Berta Robbins Vocational Scholarship can be obtained from the Galeton Area High School Guidance office.
C&N Wealth Management, Trustee of the Galeton Foundation, administrates the account. Applications for scholarships and grants are available on C&N’s website cnbankpa.com/GaletonFoundation.
