Nanty Glo Borough Council went calling at the Capitol in Washington,
From left: council vice president Mario Malcotti; Borough Mayor John Kupchella; administrative assistant to Senator Hugh Scott (unnamed); council president Paul Lonergan, who submitted the photo; US Senator Hugh Scott (R., Philadelphia); Congressman John P. Saylor (R., Johnstown); Councilmember John Bichko, and Nanty Glo Journal editor Jon Kennedy. The group went to Washington to apply for federal help in underwriting Nanty Glo's sewerage treatment plant.
(The photo was taken by Stewart Wertz, who was an unpaid photo-intern
for the Journal.)
*The date was provided in 2001 by Marcia Bichko Ressler, daughter of John Bichko,
who also recalled
that his father and perhaps some of the others met with President John F. Kennedy
during this trip.
