Make-A-Wish campaign brings in more than $5,000 during first day

December 14, 2010

PUNXSUTAWNEY —The Make-A-Wish Greater Pennsylvania and Southern West Virginia chapter’s “Light Up a Child’s Life” week-long wish campaign set forth Monday with day one’s fund-raising total equaling nearly enough to grant two wishes.

The foundation, which grants once-in-a-lifetime experiences — such as vacations, celebrity meetings and shopping sprees — to children facing life-threatening illnesses, ages two-and-a-half to 18, calculates the cost of a wish as $3,400.

Council approves 2011 budget with no tax increase

December 14, 2010

PUNXSUTAWNEY — Punxsutawney Borough Council approved the 2011 budget with no tax increase at Monday’s council meeting.

Council President Susan Glessner said at last month’s meeting that council did agree to shift 0.15 mills from the recreation department budget to the library fund budget to make up for the short fall in funding from the state.

Glessner has praised the department heads and borough employees for working hard on next year’s spending plan so that they can continue with all of the borough’s services without increasing taxes.
