Photo by Maria Firkaly at Pymatuning State Park.

Drumroll please…introducing’s Facebook Timeline cover photo winner: Maria Firkaly. Check it out on Facebook.

A mom of two boys (and two dogs), Firkaly works at Center for Family Services in Meadville and also runs her own social media marketing business.

We asked: “What does Crawford County mean to you?” Firkaly’s photo of Pymatuning State Park captured what she loves most about Crawford County: its peaceful atmosphere.

“I just had my boys and neighbor with me at the beach that day,” said Firkaly. “It was a really pretty day; I also got some great sunset photos.”

Firkaly loves living in Crawford.

“You don’t have to travel very far to find nature, places to relax, to spend time with your family, to find inexpensive activities.”

Originally a Pittsburgh area native, Firkaly now lives in Epsyville. “It’s peaceful, there’s wildlife, people are friendly.”

GoCrawfordCounty is now excited to launch our Facebook Timeline.  We feel social media can help us better stay connected with you. More importantly, you can stay better connected with us.

A big thanks to all our entries, we loved hearing from you, and receiving your photos.

Now that our Timeline is launched, we’d love to continue hearing from you. Have news? Announcing an event? Submit an article directly online. Submit, even if it’s a ways off.

Have photos to share? Submit to our community photo album. Share your events on our event listings: these become the “Briefs” you see in print.

We love to hear from you: post on our Facebook Timeline, or tweet at us @GoCrawfordCTY. Shoot us an email at Or, you can send us a message directly through Facebook.
