(Editorâs note: This piece is one in a series of âFamiliar Faces Fridayâ features to be written by Spirit reporter Destiny Pifer. The point of the project will be to highlight a member of the community who may be recognizable to many and tell his or her story. Todayâs familiar face is Tom Chelgren.)
PUNXSUTAWNEY â Tom Chelgren is a recognizable face around town. He may be most recognizable as a former sergeant for the Pennsylvania State Police, or perhaps, you have seen him throughout the community involved in one of his many activities.
Seven actors will bring 22 characters to life in the uproariously funny satire, âGreater Tuna.â
Appearing in the Punxsutawney Theatre Arts Guildâs concluding play of the season are (front, from left) Laura Chelgren, Loretta Ball, Jennifer Soliday (director); (back) S. Thomas Curry, Terry A. Fye, Ilona Ball and Doug Fye.
The show will be staged at 7:30 nightly in the Punxsutawney Area Middle School auditorium on Oct. 25 and 26, and Nov. 1 and 2.
UNXSUTAWNEY â On Thursday night, the Lady Chucks' volleyball team hosted the Lady Raiders of Brookville for their Senior Night.
With their rival in town, and their seniors being honored, the best case scenario for the Lady Chucks would be a three-game shut out of the Lady Raiders.
While they were unable to complete that unreachable task, they did the next best thing.
Punxsy sent off its seniors with a three-game sweep, outscoring the Lady Raiders 75-21 (25-5, 25-10, 25-6) en route to victory.
