Members of the Jefferson County Chapter of the Pennsylvania Association of School Retirees (PASR) recently enjoyed packing 50 cheerful holiday stockings that they, in turn, distributed to senior members (80 and above) throughout the area from Brockway to Falls Creek to Reynoldsville, Big Run, Brookville, Punxsutawney and other communities. Each stocking contained a small stuffed animal, a notepad and pencil, a Yuletide hand towel, twin packs of Kleenex, small chocolate bars, a fresh clementine, a holiday cup or mug and a greeting card. Among those who worked on the project were (front, from left) Ellen Rose and D.J Bianco; (back) Jan Harrold, Deanna Welton, Patti Anderson, Betsy Neal and Bob Barone. Others who assisted coordinator Charlotte S. Fye were S. Thomas Curry, Terry A. Fye, Angela Gigliotti, Lee Foulkrod and Jim Grant. (Right photo) Ellen Rowan, a PASR member from Brookville, shows her delight with her Christmas gift stocking, which Tom Curry delivered to her home.
