Dr. Betty Hayes . . . Serving Families in Need:
In the 1940’s, Betty Hayes was a general practicing doctor serving the Penfield, Force, Weedville and other poorer mining villages in both Clearfield and Elk counties.
A rarity for her time, she helped mining families stand up against the Shawmut Coal Co., although in bankruptcy for decades, continued to operate company housing in these villages.
You will learn about Dr. Betty and how she attracted national press attention in her crusade to provide better living conditions and to provide sanitary water and waste disposal conditions for area families.
You can join Presenter, David Wulderk, a local historian,, on Tuesday, Nov. 21, at the Lock Haven University – Clearfield’s Academic Building from 1 p.m. – 2:30 p.m. The seminar is offered at no charge, but pre-registration is required. Register by calling the CCAAA at 814-765-2696.
The Clearfield County Life-long Learning Institute has seminars scheduled through December. For a complete listing of classes, please visit the agency’s Web site at www.ccaaa.net or www.lhup.edu/clearfield and click on the “Life-long Learning Institute” link.
Programs and services of the agency are funded in part by the Pennsylvania Department of Aging, the Clearfield County Area Agency on Aging Inc., Mature Resources Foundation and local and consumer contributions.
