The Cochranton Ministerial named C•A•R•E 'Organization of the Year', Sunday, Aug. 5, at the Fair's Vesper Service. We are truly honored. Thank you!
Two years ago, the Cochranton Area Redevelopment Effort (CARE) along with the Cochranton Lions Club who own and maintain the community park launched a fundraising effort for the replacement and refurbishing of the playground equipment. It would require $50,000 to update the park. Funds were raised from community members and organizations along with grant monies from the Crawford Heritage Community Foundation. Much of the expense for labor and construction was donated by local businesses and individuals and through their efforts, four new pieces of equipment were installed: the Lunar Net climbing structure, the Double Viper slide for older kids, two Freedom swings and the Voltage Play Structure for 2 to 12 year olds. All play areas have been mulched to cushion the drop zone. Today children of all ages can be seen enjoying the new equipment.
Cochranton Area Redevelopment Effort (CARE) along with the Cochranton Lions Club wish to thank everyone who donated their resources, time and monies to this project. Please join us at Cochranton Lions Community Park on Sunday, August 5, at 2 PM for a dedication and celebration of the “new” playground.
You are invited! CARE will dedicate the "new" playground on Sunday, August 5 at 2. Join us in the celebration!

Chief Pontiac and a few young braves hit the French Creek Heritage Event with a vengeance. The battle enactment proved to be too much for the Brits. Perhaps tomorrow, history will be rewritten... the grounds open at 9.
The British soldiers and Native Americans (re-enactors) are setting up their encampments. The colonials are putting out their wares, the fort has been built and the food vendors are set to go! Join us Saturday and Sunday for the 4th Annual French Creek Heritage Event at the Cochranton Fairgrounds and let the Rebellion begin!
CARE is inviting kayakers to float along side history by joining the Native American and colonial re-enactors as they paddle in to the French Creek Heritage Event on July 14, from Shaw's Landing to Cochranton.

In 1763, Native American warriors staged an attack against the broken promises of the British which resulted in the burning of local forts. Experience history as Pontiac's Rebellion comes to life at the French Creek Heritage Event at the Cochranton Fairgrounds, July 14 and 15.

Lincoln Logs® are needed by the Cochranton Area Redevelopment Effort for a children’s activity at this year’s French Creek Heritage Event to be held in July at the Cochranton Fairgrounds.
If you have Lincoln Logs® in need of a new home, CARE would appreciate the donation. Donations may be dropped off at the Cochranton Borough office on E. Adams St or at Roche Graphics on Roche Lane, Cochranton.
The event’s theme for 2018 is Pontiac’s Rebellion 1763-1766, an historical event that resulted in the burning of Fort Venango in Franklin. Added activities to include the younger visitors in local history is seen as an important goal for CARE. Local forts and Lincoln Logs® seem a natural fit.
