SNOWFLAKE BALL Saturday evening December 1st was an exciting day for many girls and boys from both Penn Cambria Junior High and the Senior High as they attended the annual Snow Flake Ball at either the High School or Oriental. The ones I got to see were looking their best, the boys wore ties and the girls in colorful dresses with an arm full of flowers. Four grandchildren were among the many attendees at the dance: they are Nathan Przybys, Allison Barlick, Desiree Buckowski and Kiana Nadolsky.
CHRISTMAS LIGHTS There are many homes already nicely decorated for the Christmas season. Riding around after dark the area looks so friendly with the glittering lights brightening the winter darkness. Besides Lilly starting to look it’s finest I have noticed nice lighting along Route 53 coming into Cresson from both Lilly and Gallitzin. The Dunmyers already have their fabulous display in place off of the Country Club Road. Take the kids to see it.
