Muncy locals 1.22
There’s no denying that social media is an effective tool if properly used. Case in point: our front page story involving the returned class ring which belonged to a former Muncy student. While it was initially shared to the Muncy Alumni Association’s Facebook page, the images of the ring were repeatedly shared nearly 1,000 times over the course of five days, finally connecting with the owner. Additionally, the high school library (where I spend my daytime hours as a library aide) was contacted to provide any information regarding the owner, who had attended Muncy but did not graduate. As the story developed, my interest grew after realizing that the former student was a neighbor I had completely forgotten about!
