On Aug. 17, the Beaver Valley Area Chapter of the Penn State Alumni Association will sell cups and cones of Penn State Creamery ice cream from 6 to 7:30 p.m. at the amphitheater. On both evenings, the chapter will sell hot and cold refreshments prior to and during the concert. Sale proceeds benefit the alumni chapter’s scholarships for Beaver campus students.
Beginning at 6:30 p. m., the Mill Creek Valley Historical Association will staff and host free tours of the Baker-Dungan Museum located on the hill overlooking the J. P. Giusti Amphitheater. The museum, which is open to the public, contains a variety of local historical artifacts, tools, furniture, clothing, art and other displays.
