Community Happenings

There were so many things going on around the area this week that you could feel the sense of community even though it extends over many miles in this rural area. Maybe it's just because I'm a photojournalist but I knew someone at every one of the venues presented this week.

This is the blood drive held by the National Honor Society members from Northern Cambria High School. They met their goal of 45 pints and went over it by 4.

The Third Annual Altoona Mirror Basketball Classic, In Memory of Big John and Tom Riley, for 22 years was called the Big John Riley Classic. It matches top seniors from Blair and Cambria Counties and was held on Friday night at the Stokes Center on the campus of Saint Francis University.

Due to inclement weather the Friends Group of Prince Gallitzin State Park had decided to reschedule their Easter Egg Hunt which was most fortuitous because this past Saturday turned out to be a bright and sunny, if even somewhat cold, day. At least we didn't have any snow.

Young Tyler Kuing of Ashville, PA came back with a whole basket full of eggs.

Parents had the opportunity to have their children fingerprinted at the event.

Pics look great! Also, Delta Sigma Phi is out there for 36 hours, not 24!
