The Greater Susquehanna Valley Chamber of Commerce has produced a Quality of Life guide for Snyder, Union, Northumberland and Montour counties. You will need Adobe Acrobat Reader, and the guide may take awhile to download due to the large amount of pictures. If you would like a hard copy mailed to you, contact the Chamber at 1-800-410-2880.
