PUNXSUTAWNEY â€” Ursula Albino and her husband, Joe, have enjoyed the last 20 years of their retirement, but in that time, they have also found ways to give back to others.
Most recently, in 2010, they signed up to volunteer for the American Cancer Society's (ACS) Road to Recovery program, which pairs community volunteers with cancer patients to provide rides to and from cancer treatments.
But in the last two years, the Albinos have remained the only volunteers covering Jefferson County, so they are seeking some extra hands.
BELL TOWNSHIP â€” Punxsutawney Area School District elementary schools celebrated "Read Across America Dayâ€ť and Dr. Seuss' birthday at the same time.
The National Education Association's â€śRead Across Americaâ€ť is an annual reading motivation and awareness program that calls for every child in every community to celebrate reading and the birthday of beloved children's author Dr. Seuss March 2.
â€śAnything that promotes reading is a wonderful thing," said Sherri Spicher, first-grade teacher at Bell Township Elementary School.
