Familiar Faces Friday! Mark Young

January 24, 2014

(Editor’s note: This piece is one in a series of “Familiar Faces Friday” features to be written by Spirit reporter Destiny Pifer. The point of the project will be to highlight a member of the community who may be recognizable to many and tell his or her story. Today’s familiar face is Mark Young.)

PUNXSUTAWNEY — Mark Young is a familiar face. You may recognize him as one of the new owners of Roseman’s Florist. Or perhaps you have seen him throughout town.

Young was born and raised in Punxsutawney and is a 2001 graduate of Punxsutawney Area High School.

The snow picked up just in time for the departure, similar to confetti falling from the sky.

Maybe it was Mother Nature’s way of wishing the team good luck. Punxsy will compete Friday, and — if the team qualifies — Saturday as well.
