BIG RUN â€” After a devastating fire Sunday, Big Run Carpet owner Jeff London, who vowed to keep his business running, received some surprise help.
Monday, local volunteer firefighters and community members presented him with two temporary shelters to house an office and carpet samples as he recovered from the blaze that destroyed his business. The shelters, one of which was sent over by local firefighters, were delivered to the scene of the fire on Thompson Street Monday.
TROUTVILLE â€” It will seem like the Old West this week when the Appalachian Wagon Train travels through the Punxsutawney area today and Wednesday.
The wagon train has been traveling throughout Pennsylvania since 1970 and travels anywhere from 12 to 20 miles per day.
Dick Stewart, president, said this is a family-oriented and church-oriented event, which is focused on a historical site or event that took place in the Appalachian regions of Pennsylvania.
