Summer is nearly here and there are plenty of events in Blair County for residents to enjoy! In addition to some of the area’s best shopping, dining and entertainment, Altoona and Huntingdon are just minutes from Central Pennsylvania’s most scenic state parks and outdoor recreation options.

Back-to-school season can be just as chaotic as it is relieving (for the parents at least!). After a long summer break without much structure, getting back into a daily routine can bring some much-welcomed order back to your home.
When you think about getting organized for school, there’s more to organize than just your kids’ rooms. Thinking about the rush you feel from the moment the alarm goes off until you’re finally able to push the kids out the door, you’ll understand why organizing the whole house is important. Here’s how to organize some key rooms in your home for this new season and start the school year on the right foot!
We may be biased, but we think autumn in Pennsylvania is the best. From the rich colors in the fall foliage to the crisp feeling in the air, there isn’t anywhere else we’d rather be. With Halloween just a couple of weeks away, celebrate this season with family and friends and some of these great events.
Here’s a brief list of fun autumn-themed events happening near our Central and South Central PA new home communities:
Wine & Cheese Event Held at Harvest Glen Community
Realtors in Blair County should plan to mark their calendars for Wednesday, July 20 unless they are okay missing out on the summer’s biggest appreciation event of the season! Any Blair County Realtor is invited to join us at our Harvest Glen community on Wednesday, July 20 to feast upon seasonal cheeses and wines at our Realtor Appreciation Wine & Cheese Happy Hour.
But Realtors will have more to feast on than wine and appetizers. Those who take the time to tour the two move-in ready Brookfield townhomes that are available at Harvest Glen will have the opportunity to take advantage an even larger treat. A $1,000 bonus will be offered to any Realtor that is the procuring cause of a sale of either of the two move-in ready townhouse units available there if the home sale is dated 7/20/16 – 8/20/16. The bonus is being offered in addition to any other advertised commission, so it is truly a perk in every sense of the word. Read More
What happens if you fall in love with a floor plan or home but you aren’t so interested in a specific community? Or maybe you don’t want to live in a neighborhood at all – maybe lots of acreage down a winding dirt road paints a better picture of your ideal home. For those seeking something a bit more outside the box, a solution is not far from reach.
S&A Homes’ Build on Your Lot program puts all of our available floor plans at your fingertips to build on your piece of land. While many builders may claim they do the same, no program is as streamlined or as customer-friendly as ours. The secret is that we don’t ask our customers to manage the home building project the way most new construction providers will. Instead, you will have a project manager working for you, negotiating costs and choosing the most reputable vendors to complete the work in a timely and high-quality fashion. Read More
Our number one tip is to not do it all alone. From decorating the house to prepping dinner to cleaning up, allot certain tasks to family members. That way, you don’t have to worry about making the beds or tidying up the kids’ rooms when you’re about to cook one of the best meals of the year.
Our second tip to you is to ask your guests to bring the sides. Does your grandma make the best sweet potato casserole? Maybe your brother has a knack for baking pies. Ask guests to bring a favorite dish. Turkey and stuffing is plenty to have cooking in your oven. Read More
To assume that trick or treating occurs on Halloween night may leave you in the dark, literally. With Halloween falling on a Saturday this year, many of the standard trick or treat times seem to have gone out the window! We don’t want you to get left in the cold, so read below to make sure you are in the know.
State College – This year’s trick or treat will occur this Thursday, October 29 from 6 to 8 p.m. in the State College Borough, as well as the surrounding townships of Harris, Patton and Ferguson. Nearby Halfmoon Township will hold trick or treating on Thursday as well but from 5:30 to 8:30 p.m. Read More
