Boot drive helps collect food for holidays

December 10, 2010

PUNXSUTAWNEY — This weekend marks the 27th anniversary of the Punxsutawney Fire Department’s annual food drive, which this year will be held Saturday and Sunday.

Bill Zimmerman, along with fellow Central Fire Department members Bob Hockinson and Warren Kellert, established the drive in 1983.

Zimmerman said they realized the Salvation Army — the only food bank in town at that time — had a need because people were hurting, just like today.

“We felt it was a good thing to do, to help the Salvation Army once we took care of the people who just fell through the cracks,” he said.

Punxsutawney Area High School’s National Honor Society inducted 20 new members during a ceremony Thursday evening. Four seniors and 16 juniors were welcomed into the academic society, which is founded upon the four pillars of scholarship, leadership, service and character, after meeting requirements of maintaining a 95-percent GPA and undergoing an application process. “They really and truly have to be the best students in our school to be part of the National Honor Society,” Principal David London said.
