Latest JCWA News:


Due to predictions of 28 degrees on the morning and a 70% chance of rain/snow on Saturday, JCWA has decided to cancel our Adopt a Highway litter cleanup along Clay Pike Road.  Keep checking for updates, as we will try to reschedule it when the weather approves. Happy Halloween!

JCWA will have a board meeting Tuesday, December 16th at 6:30 p.m. at the Scottdale Borough Building.  We welcome all to come and hear about what projects, events, and activities JCWA has planned for the next few months.  Refreshments will be offered, in addition to the chance of winning an amazing door prize!  Special Holiday goodies may even make an appearance.  Hope to see you there!
