How did it begin?
Lisa Robinson is an OHF board member who has dedicated her considerable experience and talents in support of revitalizing Downtown Schuylkill Haven and recognizing the importance of working in concert with other nonprofit organizations/businesses that advocate “strong partnerships and community activism” for the benefit of residents who live in – and tourists that visit -- the Greater Schuylkill Haven Area (not just the Central Business District).
During a summer 2019 strategy session, the OHF Board unanimously approved Lisa’s proposal to launch discoverschuylkillhaven.com.
