We are Clifford Township Area
Our society’s motto is the little organization that does big things.
Clifford township’s bicentennial celebration in 2005 resulted in the formation of our Historical Society. Since that time, fantastic community support has made it possible for our small organization to renovated the Hoover one room school, create a Museum of Local History and build an Agricultural Museum.
Our most ambitious project has been the renovation of the Yarns Cider Mill, which is now nearing completion and will press apples through the original 1894 Boomer & Boschert Screw Press inside the totally rebuild mill. But our most rewarding and just plan fun project has been the Clifford Children’s Garden, It is located adjacent to the 38 acre Clifford Community Park and offers a one acre enclosed area for all ages to enjoy educational signage of our local history while children grow their imaginations and hopefully learn to love history by playing in the different sections of the Garden based in the past.

Dear friends, As you already know, the Clifford Area is a close-knit community, with wonderful citizens willing to help and support each other. We are all very fortunate to live here, knowing that if we are ever in need , we can reach out to our neighbors and they would be there to help us. Jeff Miller’s family has been fighting cancer since May 5, 2021. 42 year old Dorothy Miller was diagnosed with Stage 4 Inflammatory Breast Cancer that did not show up on her mammograms. This type of cancer has no cure but treatment will extend her life. It is a rapid growing form of cancer and by the time she was diagnosed it had already spread to her liver, hip and uterus. She has and will be going through chemo, major surgeries, radiation and long-term medications. Jeff has been unable to work since Dorothy’s diagnoses because he takes her to weekly treatments and cares for her 24/7. They have three children Kody 13, Maddie 15 and Kierstin 19 who attends college. Dorothy desperately wants to see her children graduate. Let’s help her win this fight and accomplish her goal!! The Miller’s friends and family have helped them all Summer by starting a meal chain, Spaghetti Supper Fundraiser and a very successful Go Fund Me account initiated by Dorothy’s best friend Debbie Evans. This support by their family and friends has helped the Miller family both financially and emotionally, so typical of the wonderful folks living in our area!! But the Millers still have a long fight ahead of them! You may not know about Jeff Miller’s family history. Jeff is a direct descendant of Adam Miller, the first permanent settler in Clifford in 1799. The Clifford Twp Historical Society just learned of the Miller’s struggles. We would like to help by offering to accept donations for the Millers through our non- profit organization, making your donation tax deductible. The Historical Society will send each donor the needed paperwork for tax filing. Every cent donated through the historical society will be given to the Millers. Please send your donation payable to: Clifford Township Historical Society PO Box 161 Clifford, PA 18413 Hopefully we can all help boost their spirits to make the Miller family’s holidays a little brighter. Your donation to help the Miller family will continue to show the heart and caring of the entire Clifford area. Millers live just over the Clifford Township line- on Hickory Ridge Road in Greenfield Twp. Any questions, please contact Sandra Wilmot at 570-679-2723 or email: email@example.com. Thank you for your support to help this deserving young family. Sincerely, Sandra Wilmot, President Clifford Townshiphip Historical Society
