Also the tickets are available at Lapps, Lou's Sunoco, Colonial Liquors, Rudy's Sporting Goods in Pennsville, the PGHS library, from Grace Cannavo, Dave Gallagher, Howard Hoover and Michele Landew. Even if you yourself can't come to the party, please pass on the info to your friends. We hope to have a full house like last year.
