ST. MARYS — For Memorial High School senior Megan Schmehl, life — for the moment — is all about school and sports.
Schmehl participates in cheerleading, soccer, and is on the bowling team at St. Marys. She played stopper and sweeper for the soccer team. Schmehl just joined the bowling team this year, after being recruited by the coach since she was a freshman.
“They’ve been trying to get me to do it for like, four years now,” Schmehl said. “I could never do it until the dual sporting came into play.”
ST. MARYS — An army of volunteers will soon take to the St. Marys Armory all in the name of giving this holiday season.
Goodfellows, which distributes toys and food to needy families within the St. Marys School District, is accepting applications for this season. St. Marys Community Foundation Administrator Mike Makley said the program has been active in the community for more than 50 years.
ST. MARYS — The holiday season kicks off in St. Marys on Sunday as two winter events come together.
