The Shaffer Family of Hooversville – Pennsylvania Propane Family Portrait Series 2017

In 2014, PAPGA launched a new documentary-style video portrait series entitled ‘Pennsylvania Propane Family Portaits’.

These videos are designed to celebrate the many family-owned and operated Propane business across the commonwealth. The videos are first shown exclusively to the attendees at the association’s Fall Membership Meeting and then posted on several platforms for all interested viewers to enjoy. 

The Fourth Edition of the Family Portrait Series features the Shaffer Family of Hooversville, PA. The story begins with the young and forward-thinking Daniel Shaffer, who opens a hardware store in 1901 to support area miners and farmers. The story progresses through five generations of the family, including the 1995 launch of Shaffer’s Bottled Gas (SBG) and the many years of service to their community. 

We hope that you enjoy this year’s portrait video:
