Applause, Applause!

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

A great deal of love and appreciation goes out to Patty Lacy and Tina Rogers for their many years of dedication to the Renovo Area Community Choir. THANK YOU for sharing your time and talents. To Patty our director, for sharing your wonderful talent, your loving spirit and for your endless patients. To Tina our talented accompanist, for sharing your amazing talent and for spending many hours arranging music putting up with all the choir members and our antics. Thank you both for the many hours of choosing musical selections and coming to practice fall through spring and beyond for many years. You have both been a true blessing to our area. Without both of you, those who enjoy being choir members wouldn’t be able to sing and share their love of music with the community. Music is truly a gift from God and your love and devotion to the choir has been a true blessing. We will sing on!

They dispatched someone immediately and my brother used the officers phone to call me. THANK YOU Lock Haven Police Department. You are awesome!
