Celebrate Friends, Family and Community at Come Together Clarion!

On April 26, 2014,  residents of the Clarion region will gather on 6th Avenue to celebrate friends, family, and community. Organizations from across the community and campus are joining together to build a day of activities, entertainment, awards and fun for everyone involved!

Throughout the day, participants will get to make their mark on the Come Together Clarion community quilt. There will be family Olympics, a 5K race, prizes, awards, and community advocacy tables. During the closing ceremony, individuals who have helped make their community great will be recognized. 

For more information about the event, or if your organization is interested in partnering with a student group for a craft or activity, please send an email to able@clarion.edu.

 

What is Come Together Clarion All About?

Come Together Clarion is the result of many people who love the Clarion region and what it stands for coming together to celebrate what makes our area great: our people! This event is possible because of the hard work, dedication and support of the following campus groups:

The Advisory Board for Leadership and Engagement, Student Senate, Emerging Leaders, the Honors Program, the Center for Leadership and Involvement, Sigma Phi Epsilon, and the Good Neighbor Program. 

There are also many, many community organizations and agencies that make this event possible and successful, including: the school districts of Clarion County, the Clarion Borough Office, the Clarion County Offices, the Clarion Area Chamber of Business and Industry, and the American Legion.

There are many opportunities to get involved, and it's not too late. If you are interested in volunteering to help stage the event or if your organization would like to participate, please send an email to cuservice@clarion.edu.
