First-ever Gobbler’s Knob Community Yard Sale set for Saturday

July 19, 2012

PUNXSUTAWNEY — Groundhog Day is still a few months away, but Gobbler’s Knob — Punxsutawney Phil’s home away from his burrow at the library — will be busy from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. Saturday during the first-ever Gobbler’s Knob Community Yard Sale.

Katie Donald, the executive director of the Groundhog Club, said anyone and everyone is invited to sell items, provided that they stop at the Punxsutawney Area Chamber of Commerce and sign up.

If that’s not possible, vendors or residents may come to the knob at 8 a.m. Saturday to do so.

July 19, 2012

PUNXSUTAWNEY — The Punxsutawney Lions Club honored several of its members at a recent dinner.

The club is 67 years old, founded Jan. 4, 1945, and is still going strong at Camp Little Leo in Bell Township, said President Mike Ruffner.

Joe Molitierno, first vice-president and past governor, said Lions Club International has been around since 1917.

The 59-member Punxsy club is the only one in the area that meets year-round, while most of the other clubs take the summer off, Ruffner said. Secretary Denny Rebuck said membership is by invitation only from a current club member.

It’s a good thing for that canopy ... When the rain crept into Barclay Square Thursday evening, guests pulled their chairs close to the stage to dodge the drops, while others had umbrellas on hand. Nevertheless, the rain did not chase the second installment of Music in the Park indoors, as the featured band, Ridin’ Shotgun, kept the crowd entertained despite the elements.
