Special Olympics a Special Blessing to St. Michael's Church in Jermyn - 11/23/19
On Saturday, November 23rd, "The Special Olympics of Northeastern Pennsylvania" held a festive banquet at St. Michael's Center in Jermyn. A check of $250.00 was presented to Special Olympics from the Community Bank in Jermyn, by the Bank President, John Peterson, in recognition of the work in being done to help those who have special needs.
Seven years ago, this chapter of "Special Olympics" found a home at St. Michael's Orthodox Church and permission was granted for this organization to use St. Michael's Center, and the field for all their activities. Fr. John Kowalczyk stated, "We consider this organization as a Special Blessing to our Parish Community."
