Happy Groundhog's Day!
The groundhog says six more weeks of winter, but at this point if he is right, those are the only 6 weeks of winter we're going to see this year!
Very few Centennial items remain.
All DVDs are sold. Most of, perhaps all at this writing, of the Christmas ornaments have been sold. All the coffee mugs are sold, but we still have some beer mugs. We also have booklets available.

June 26, 2011. A few days ago I updated the schedule of events, and sent out an email to everyone who has registered there to that effect. Since then I've corrected a couple minor typoes, so you might want to double check in case there was something you wanted to make sure you were there for. I'm not aware of anything that was listed later, I accidentally listed a few start times earlier though. Less than a week away, YAHOO! -- Chris

June 16, 2011. I've made a correction to the Presbyterian Church's schedule in the schedule of events. The pancake breakfast is ONLY SATURDAY. My apologies for any confusion. -- Chris

June 1, 2011, Only a month away! I've updated the schedule of events with the latest information.

January 25, 2011, forums are up and running. Stop by to chat.

On November 11, I added a contact link in case you need to send me a note or ask a question.

I also added a sign up page. If you sign up, I'll let you know when we open our forums, and send you an occasional (once a month, when I have the opportunity) email letting you know how plans for the Centennial are progressing.

On July 1st, 2nd, and 3rd of 2011 we are celebrating the Colver Centennial. Please make plans to attend!

Welcome To Colver, PA


Colver is a small town located in Western Central Pennsylvania.
It was founded in 1911 by B. Dawson Coleman and John
Heisley Weaver due to close proximity to the large amounts of coal in the
area and the highly railroad-accessible terrain.

The partnership between the two men was what began the town,
however the people have always been the ones who keep it alive.

Though the town has diminished slightly from its once exceptionally
prosperous state, it is still a wonderful place to live. Moreover it's
a place many can truly call home, for there is a saying that goes,

"Those that live in Colver will always come back, for that is where their hearts lay."
