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.
