(Editorâ€™s note: This piece is one in a series of â€śFamiliar Faces Fridayâ€ť 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. Todayâ€™s familiar face is Mark Young.)
PUNXSUTAWNEY â€” Mark Young is a familiar face. You may recognize him as one of the new owners of Rosemanâ€™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.
Members of the local police force and the Punxsutawney Fire Department saw off the competitive cheerleader squad from Punxsutawney Area High School on Thursday afternoon, as they departed for the state championships in Hershey, Pa.
The snow picked up just in time for the departure, similar to confetti falling from the sky.
Maybe it was Mother Natureâ€™s way of wishing the team good luck. Punxsy will compete Friday, and â€” if the team qualifies â€” Saturday as well.
