"The Austin Pride Committee is a non-profit, volunteer-based organization based in Austin, Pennsylvania within Potter County. The main focus of our organization is to aid in community revitalization and to continue to instill and nourish a sense of pride within our residents and our town. We actively fundraise and partner with like-minded organizations to be able to lead initiatives such as an annual Independence Day firework display, community service and awareness scholarships, volunteer community cleanup days, community festivals, and the like. This year, we have initiated a town lighting project for the upcoming holiday season. Individual fundraising efforts, combined with personal donations, County grant support, local Borough partnership, and a pile of volunteered work hours have enabled us to be successful." -     Potter Leader-Enterprise, November 8, 2018
