It was full circle for one member of the Cranberry Township Community Chest. In 1975, the Cranberry Township Rotary decided its main project for the year would be to start a Community Chest. Frank Petrone, then president of the Cranberry Township Rotary and formerly one of the reformed CTCC's 11 board members, recalled how the Boy Scouts, Girl Scouts, J.C., Women's Club, Fire Company and Ambulance Corps had to solicit funds any way they could.
Community Chest's first slogan was "Watch the tree Grow" and a tree-shaped campaign sign was planted off Route 19 at Crider's Corner, where Burger King now stands. Like CTCC's original tree, Frank's dedication continued to grow. His guidance in giving back to the community symbolized what makes Cranberry both a great community and a special place to call home.
