At the annual banquet for the Punxsutawney Area Historical & Genealogical Society, held at Gobbler's Knob on Saturday, two awards were presented.

(Bottom left photo) Randy Raybuck (right) was presented with the Historic Preservation Award for his work to make sure the memory of Worthville native and former Major League Baseball player Jimmy Slagle lived on in his hometown.

The focus of the banquet this year — the 40th anniversary of the society — was Snyder Hill and its role in the history of Punxsutawney. For more from the presentation — plus information on the open house held earlier Saturday at the Snyder Hill Schoolhouse — see Monday's print edition.
