    Ryan Fatzinger finishes Boy Scout Eagle project
      The local paper, "The Times News" published a great article on Ryan's Eagle project.  Ryan plays the trumpet and French horn for the band and is currently a Junior attending Lehighton Area High School.  He chose to clean out the room next to the boiler and fix it up as a instrument repair shop for the Band.  Thanks to his efforts, we now have a wonderful space to work on our instruments and an additional donation of $193.56 for the year.  Please take the time to read all about him and his project (click here).  If you see Ryan in your travels, please congratulate him on a job well done.
