COMMUNITY


The Mount Carmel community is a vibrant group of individuals who take great pride in their town. The community hosts various events ranging from church gatherings to the annual Deppen Day celebration held in conjunction with Bucknell University. Find out ways to get involved within the Mount Carmel Community below!

MOUNT CARMEL DEVELOPMENT INITIATIVE

Mount Carmel Development Initiative (MCDI) is a non-profit focused on the revitalization efforts in the town. The organization was established in 2017 and has since worked hard to establish its presence within the community. MCDI has provided entertainment in the park, Christmas decorations for the town streets, and colorful banners that line the downtown area. Most recently MCDI has been working with the Kaupas Center and Bucknell University on joint initiatives that will help further its mission and establish positive relationships with surrounding areas. Deppen Day in particular is a notable event hosted by MCDI in order to attract past and present community members and bring them to the beautiful downtown area.
