Susquehanna Pop-Up Paddle
Aug 8 @ 8:00 am – 4:00 pm
COVID-19 may have delayed our Float & Films plan to 2021, but we are not letting it keep us off the river this year! So grab your kayak, family, & friends and join us for a Pop-up Paddle on the lower West Branch on August 8, 2020.

This one-day 11.5-mile float takes paddlers from Milton State Park to Shikellamy State Park with an onshore lunch stop at The Fence Drive-In. It’s a great opportunity to explore the Greenway and the West Branch Susquehanna River Water Trail.

The route begins along calm, scenic waters, with some iconic bridges and an opportunity to experience the wildlife and ecology of this section. After about 4.5 miles we will be taking out onshore for lunch at The Fence Drive-In Restaurant. The paddle will then continue as the West Branch transitions into Lake Augusta near its confluence with the North Branch. Shortly thereafter is the take-out site at Shikellamy State Park on Packers Island.

Our paddle sold out last year, so don’t wait. Reserve your tickets today!

When: August 8, 2020, 8:00 AM – 4:00 PM

Evangelical Invites Golfers and Sponsors to Take Part in 34th Annual Golf Classic Event
Aug 14 all-day

Evangelical Community Hospital will host its 34th Annual Golf Classic Event on Friday, August 14, 2020, at the Susquehanna Valley Country Club in Selinsgrove. The scramble format event has morning and afternoon shotgun starts available at 8 am and 1:30 pm. Entry fee for each golfer is $125 and includes green fees, golf cart, refreshments on the course, and meals. In light of the COVID-19 pandemic, some aspects of this event are subject to change.

The Golf Classic event raises funds for life-sustaining treatments performed by the trained paramedics and emergency medical technicians of Evangelical Regional Mobile Medical Services. These emergency responders also provide vital patient information to Emergency Department (ED) personnel before the patient arrives at the ED doors.

This year’s event features on-the-course contests and a chance to win 2020 Ford Escape from Selinsgrove Ford with a hole-in-one on the course. Quandel Construction is the main Golf Classic Event Sponsor. Other sponsorship opportunities are available for those looking to support ERMMS.

Awards to the top three teams in the morning and afternoon will be announced after all golfers have returned their score cards.

“Over the years, this annual event has raised nearly $1,037,000,” said Donna Schuck, Associate Vice President/Chief Development Officer at Evangelical. “We are extremely grateful to the sponsors, participants, and donors whose contributions make the tournament a great success; this event is about more than just a day on the golf course, it’s about providing necessary funds to support lifesaving services.”

ERMMS staff answer over 12,000 calls per year with 50 percent of those being medical emergencies, 40 percent being trauma, and 10 percent classified as other. All ERMMS paramedics are nationally registered and cover territories in Lewisburg, Watsontown, Mifflinburg, White Deer Township, Milton, Middleburg, New Columbia, and the surrounding areas.

2020 has proven even more challenging for emergency response staff who are activated to assist in triaging and caring for patients before arriving to the Hospital. The COVID-19 pandemic saw an increased amount of calls, with higher sensitivity to the spread of infectious disease. Even greater precautions were in place for each and every call and the need for personal protective and specialized equipment to keep both staff and patients safe increased at an alarming rate.

Nick Klose, Clinical Director of ERMMS said, “I couldn’t be prouder of how the ERMMS staff have stepped up to provide the best possible care of patients during the COVID-19 response. They continue to serve with the greatest amount of compassion during very difficult times. Dollars at this event enable the Hospital to provide the equipment and medical supply tools our EMTs and Paramedics need to save lives.”
