In this month’s edition of Good Life in Happy Valley, we introduce you to Kathy DiMuccio.
For nine years, she has been blending her loves of music and children as the director of the local Music Together program, which teaches early childhood music and movement development.
Some in the community may remember her from her days singing with the Phyrst Phamly band at the Phyrst, the State College bar her father owned.
These days she sings for a different audience, toddlers and their parents, who enjoy singing, dancing and listening to Miss Kathy, as she’s called, play the guitar like she did during her days as a professional folk singer.
In the Living Local section, we bring you an item perfect for warding off February’s chill: Ann Bloom’s Neck Cozys.
The State College author, who wrote a book about making creative costumes, now knits and crochets her own creations for her Etsy business, KnittyKittie.
Ever wonder what it would be like to drive the Zamboni ice resurfacing machine at hockey rinks? Chuck Van Dyke never did.
He never saw one until Penn State hired him three years ago to smooth its ice rink.
But at games today, he drives the Zamboni before delighted fans like a lifelong pro.
For February’s Q&A interview, we sat down with Jorn Junod, the pastor of the Discovery Road Church.
He doesn’t need Valentine’s Day to reflect on love and relationships.
All year, he counsels couples before and during marriage.
