SQUIBBING DAY - noon - 3 pm
Squibbing Day is Cambria’s Fall cleanup day, named for Paul and Louise Squibb, owners of the historic Squibb House. When out walking, the Squibbs picked up any trash that detracted from Cambria’s attractive ambience. Others often joined them and picking up trash while strolling around Cambria became known as Squibbing. Beautify Cambria has resurrected this tradition. Pick up your collection bag, gloves, and other equipment at the Cambria Historical Museum gardens. Come any time between noon and 3 p.m. Free cookies and lemonade fuel hardworking Squibbers! Squibbing Day will be the first Sunday after Pinedorado, September 8th. Staging will be at the Historical Society, 2251 Center Street, Cambria.
