Paws and Pucks to fund new K-9
The Paws and Pucks fundraiser for the Johnstown police K-9 Corps collected about $6,000, including a hefty donation from a former officer.
Greg Rager, a retired city K-9 officer now living in Florida, contributed a $5,000 check.
The donation means city police will be able to purchase another K-9 for the department.
The Paws and Pucks event was held Feb. 16 during a Johnstown Tomahawks hockey game at the Cambria County War Memorial Arena.
Scholarship program will launch today
The Cambria-Somerset Outstanding Young Woman Scholarship Program will hold its Kickoff fundraiser from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. today at The Galleria in Richland Township.
The event takes the place of the former Rock-a-Thon.
This year the finalists will create tri-folds advertising the Outstanding Young Woman program, and mall patrons will vote for their favorite through a monetary donation.
The 26 finalists – 13 from each county – will be introduced at the Kickoff.
The final selection program will be held at 7 p.m. April 20 at the Greater Johnstown Career and Technology Center.
