Man with Wooden Shovel

We need your help! First of all, does anyone recognize this gentleman using a wooden snow shovel?
Secondly, we need volunteers for the Society. All Committees are hurting for help. It won’t be too long until the Photo Committee is not working on the Archives, but will be part of them! Please email us at [email protected] or phone us at 570-784-1600 if you are interested.
