Wiliams and Cabot are "well-oiled" machines (pun intended), and they have the public relations and community outreach mechanisms in place.

The annual Cabot Community Picnic is reported to be a popular Susquehanna County event that this year drew 7,000 attendees from both Pennsylvania and New York.
