CENTRAL MOUNTAIN FOOTBALL HELPS LOCK HAVEN KIWANIS Central Mountain Football recently helped the Lock Haven Kiwanis Club unload hundreds of pounds of blueberries for their annual "case of blueberry" sale. Players and coaches took turns carrying multiple boxes into the former D. Dashem Book Store, owned by Kiwanis member, Art Sanders. The Lock Haven Kiwanis spent the last several months selling the blue- berries and organizing pick-up at the store for those who purchased. The blueberries were delivered by a flatbed truck donated by Billy MacIntyre Chevrolet.
