PUNXSUTAWNEY â€” A folded flag. A somber salute.Â A symphony of staggered rifle shots.
Yet, perhaps, the most recognizably heartbreaking offering lies in the thick, somber stillness as that slow, steady score sobers the silence. That one melancholy military cry serves to satisfy an absence of sound when fitting words cease to exist. A simple string of notes influences an unforgettable harmony, intended for â€śgoodnight,â€ť but more often remembered for â€śgoodbye.â€ť
That particular tune is known as â€śTaps.â€ť
Each year, five women are chosen by the Punxsutawney Career Womenâ€™s Club for Career Womenâ€™s Week, which this year runs through Nov. 13. The criteria used for choosing these women are based not only on their professional efforts, but also on the contributions they have made to community and family.
