PUNXSUTAWNEY â€” For the first time, the Punxsutawney Fire Departmentâ€™s Old Home Week Committee will welcome a free concert by country-rock band Ridinâ€™ Shotgun, which will perform at 7 p.m. tonight at the carnival grounds behind the west side of the Punxy Plaza.
The band has been together for five years and performed at various functions throughout the Punxsy area.
According to guitarist Ray â€śPokeâ€ť Long, last year, the group opened for The Clarks at the Dayton Fair, and has performed on the local club scene, at the Reynoldsville Street Fair and the Farmersâ€™ Market in Punxsy.
A large group of happy campers from Camp Friendship, Reynoldsville, are shown at the Punxsutawney Fire Departmentâ€™s Old Home Week Carnival Wednesday, saying thank you to those who participate in the Run/Walk for Someone Special, which pays for camp every year.
Thursday, the Punxsutawney Rotary Club gathered at the country club to recognize special award-winners, to welcome incoming officers and thank outgoing officers, and to celebrate its accomplishments over the past few months.
