Stay & play: Parks offer destinations close to home

July 20, 2012

PUNXSUTAWNEY — If you’re looking for a location to hold your summer family picnic close to home instead of driving a long distance, did you ever think about holding your event at one of the parks operated by the Borough of Punxsutawney?

There are five parks that may be reserved free of charge on a first-come, first-served basis, said Mary Neal, borough secretary.

The parks that are operated by the borough are Barclay Square, Harmon Field, Patsy’s Park, the Thomas Barletta Skate Park and the Carter Avenue (Chris Mills) Playground.

Humid weather fails to take luster from July Garden

July 20, 2012

PUNXSUTAWNEY — The balmy, humid temperatures as of late have taken tolls on all things connected to nature, causing the region’s gardeners to take extra care in watering their work.

It was during this period of time that Michele Lorenzo and Jan Zamperini learned that their work — including taking an hour each evening to water, due to the lack of rain — has earned them the title of “Garden of the Month” for July from the Punxsutawney Garden Club.

“We were horrified,” since the weather had been so cruel, Zamperini joked.
