Senior Alexa Shaffer presented Mary Jean Johnston of the Weather Discovery Center with a check for $ 989.21. She was approached by her mentor, Sue Walher, who came up with the idea of selling food at the Music in the Park event. The event runs every summer from July 12th through Aug. 23rd. As part of her project, she set up a refreshments table where everyone could purchase slices of Laska's pizza, soda and water. The project was a success, with $989.21 being raised and donated to the Weather Discovery Center.
PUNXSUTAWNEY â It would be fair to say that My Fair Lady in downtown Punxsutawney has had a fairly good run over the past five years.
"Today is our fifth anniversary, and it has been a very interesting five years of growth," said Bev Fairman, owner of My Fair Lady.
"We tried to keep the store to the period by retaining the original tin ceiling, which was covered by the suspended ceiling and actually helped to preserve it," Fairman said, adding that over the years, it could've been damaged if it had been exposed.
She described My Fair Lady as a gallery and gift store.
