Applause, Applause!

Each Saturday, The Express community newspaper highlights people, groups and activities our readers deem worthy of applause.

A very special THANK-YOU to Kevin Rauch for attending our Kettle Creek Hose Co. #1 annual banquet and for wonderful front page coverage of our beloved chief, Barry Fritzinger, receiving accolades from Mary Reynolds and for Kevin’s informative article in The Express! Many thanks again.

What a great day it was for the 48th annual Easter egg hunt in Cross Fork, on Saturday, March 31. We would like to THANK Winnie Pentz and her sons John and David and families for this wonderful gift they give our precious community each year. To see the look on the children’s faces when they find a live bunny egg makes it all worthwhile! What a blessing their family has been to all of us all these years. May God bless them.
