PAHS Alumni Band’s musical tribute

June 23, 2013

The Punxsutawney Area High School Alumni Band held a free community concert Sunday afternoon in the PAHS auditorium.

The concert was held in memory of Elizabeth Glover, who taught instrumental music in the Punxsutawney Area School District for 25 years, between 1954 and 1979.

The concert capped off a reunion of sorts for the alumni, who met for rehearsal, followed by dinner, on Saturday.
