The unofficial start to the 2017 high school football season is set. The 83rd annual Scranton Lions Club Dream Game all-star contest will be played July 19 at 7 p.m. at John Henzes/Veterans Memorial Stadium. Scranton coach Michael Marichak will guide the City team and Abington Heights’ Joe Repshis will coach the County. Last season, the City all-stars rolled to a 35-8 win to build its lead in the series to 41-37-4 in front of a crowd of 7,468.

Robert Needs Your Help.  Please.

Please help Robert fight ALS. Less than a year ago, Robert was diagnosed with this devastating disease. Now, there is a ray of hope.

A newly approved drug promises to slow the progression of ALS. Unfortunately, this drug costs approximately $10,000 per month – and it is not covered by medical insurance. The Mesko family has generously supported our community since they opened their business in 1930 and they are doing everything they can to help Robert, but they can’t face this battle alone. They and Robert urgently need your support.
