A Big Score

Parent group raises funds for new scoreboard by Christopher Cornell ADVAntAGe eDitor

If you’ve been to a baseball game at Valley View in the last few years, you know that the scoreboard had seen better days. “Unfortunately, the old scoreboard did not always work,” acknowledges Theresa J. Malski-Pezak of the Valley View Booster Club. “And when it did work, the display was not always visible. It is very hard to follow a game when you don’t know the score or the count. In addition, the old scoreboard did not have our team logo or name on it. The varsity field is very nice and the club felt a new scoreboard would only enhance our field.” But, of course, that meant raising money — something the booster club is very good at. They set to work. “The club decided to set aside the money raised from the purse bingo in 2017 to purchase the new scoreboard.” In addition to the purse bingo the club also held a pie and poinsettia sale. “This year on April 8, we will have an-

Admiring the newly installed scoreboard are, from left: Bob Blockberger, assistant varsity coach; Kris Kuzmick, fundraising chair; Lisa DeLeo, secretary; Paul Chorba, president; Susan Sebastanelli, treasurer; Theresa Pezak, vice-president; Tony Trojanowicz, vice president, Jason Munley, head varsity coach; Joe Vadala, assistant varsity coach; Ian Trently, JV coach; and Jake Stafursky, assistant varsity coach.

other purse bingo to cover the additional costs of dismantling the old scoreboard and installing the new one. The new scoreboard is much larger than the old one and the weather only made it an even bigger challenge.” Also on the fundraising agenda: memorial bricks. “The bricks will be in two sizes,” explained Malski-Pezak. “In addition to names and dates, clipart or logos can be added. We hope alumni, current and past players, members and organizations in the community support this endeavor by

purchasing a brick on their behalf or on behalf of someone else. The bricks will be displayed at the field.” The bricks are $50 for a 4-inch-by-8inch brick or $100 for an 8-inch-by-8inch brick. The information will be on the group’s Facebook page — Friends of Cougar Baseball — and they be handing out flyers at events. People can purchase the bricks through Facebook, or from any member or by mailing the order form to Friends of Cougar Baseball, Box 123, Peckville, PA 18452. The scoreboard has been completed,

despite the recent weather. However, Malski-Pezak said there always a need for more funds. “The club continues to incur expenses every year for such things as the banquet, end of the season, gifts for all players, supplementing the uniforms and miscellaneous items the teams need throughout the season.” The club meets every third Thursday of the month at 7 p.m. in the high school library. “We welcome new members,” she added.

Let’s set the record straight. You don’t have to get your spine adjusted for the rest of you life! You only need Chiropractic as long as you plan to be active and healthy! You already know that your teeth will decay faster when they’re neglected. You go to your dentist for routine check-ups and treatment to preserve your oral and overall health, and to prevent costly dental work later on. Your spine can degenerate or decay over time too. Likewise, routine spinalcheck-ups and care can help preserve your spinal health, slow down the spinal aging process and prevent costly health complications. Just as you would’nt think of ending your dental care and hygiene program once your dental visit or treatment was done, ongoing spinal care is just as important. Remember, you only get one spine. Call Today. We have appointments until 6:30 and are also open on Saturday mornings. Czulada Chiropractic is open to help you six days per week.

Spoil your Sweetheart with a tailor-made Valentine’S day This year, surprise your partner with a DIY Valentine’s Day celebration. The effort you’ll put into it definitely won’t go unnoticed. Just keep in mind that achieving that “wow” factor takes time. Bottom line: don’t start the night before. Good luck! A romantic atmosphere The success of your evening will largely depend on the atmosphere. Contact your florist to order a sizable amount of rose petals and fresh flowers, and use them to make a bouquet, a personalized card or a bundle of potpourri. If you have kids, get them involved in the decoration stage with a fun art project. For inspiration and supplies, head to your neighborhood craft store or hobby shop. Build a playlist with your favorite love songs, making sure to include tracks that remind you of your first date, your travels, your wedding and so on. The right tunes are essential to achieving a romantic ambiance. A homemade meal Cook up a meal that’s fit for royalty by calling on your local grocer, baker, butcher, fishmonger, cheese maker and chocolatier to gather the freshest, tastiest ingredients around. A custom-made gift Finally, give your better half a thoughtful gift you made yourself. If she’s a tea connoisseur, personalize a mug for her to bring to work. If she’s been talking about redecorating the living room for months, surprise her with a custom-built bookcase topped with family photos. Be creative!

Valentine’S day Celebrate the Single life Valentine’s Day is just around the corner. If you haven’t yet found your soul mate, this is the perfect opportunity to pamper yourself with a special treat. Here are a few ways to show yourself some TLC. Relax and unwind Plan a cozy evening in the comfort of your own home. Sip on a glass of wine, watch your favorite television series or have a long, luxurious bubble bath. It’s all about you and doing the things that make you feel amazing. Treat your taste buds Not having a date means you get to eat whatever you like, so get cooking and whip up a feast. If you prefer to avoid the kitchen, call in a caterer or reserve a seat at your favorite restaurant. From you to you Buy yourself a bouquet of flowers, a box of chocolates, a piece of jewelry, a new outfit, a massage, or any other present that’ll put a smile on your face. The best part? You know you won’t be disappointed. Get together Valentine’s Day is an excellent opportunity to remind your loved ones of how much you care. Invite friends or family members over for dinner and enjoy spending quality time together. If you have a few unattached friends, you can even plan a party to celebrate the single life together. Hit the dance floor When was the last time you busted a move on the dance floor? Round up some friends and hit the clubs. Salsa, swing or freestyle, it doesn’t matter—it’s all about letting loose and having fun.
