CORRECTION: County Officials and Local Volunteers Take to the Streets for 'Old Newsboys’ Day

Volunteers will spend the afternoon selling "The Happiness Edition" to raise money for Variety – The Children’s Charity.

Don't be surprised if you see some familiar faces roaming the streets around the Montgomery County Courthouse this Friday, Sept. 28, poking their heads in your car window.

Local officials, business leaders and other volunteers will be taking to the streets to sell copies of The Happiness Edition, a newspaper dedicated to the children's charity Variety and it's programs. Proceeds from the annual sale go to support the nonprofit.

Scheduled to hock papers for a good cause tomorrow are Montgomery County District Attorney Risa Vetri Ferman, Sheriff Eileen Whalon Behr, County Commissioners Josh Shapiro and Bruce L. Castor, Jr., volunteers from 98.1 WOGL Radio and plenty of other do-gooding newsies.

If you're in the area tomorrow, swing by the courthouse and pick up your copy of The Happiness Edition and help support a good cause.
