Giving back

| January 5, 2015

DSC_0032COSHOCTON – Marilyn Copenhaver and Carolyn Karr, were two of the Habitat for Humanity volunteers who helped load items Jan. 2, from Roma’s Gift Gallery that were donated to the ReStore. The Main Street store closed on Dec. 31 after being open for 19 years. “It’s bittersweet, but I was ready for retirement,” said Roma Vance, who owned the store. She decided to donate items such as shelves and displays to the ReStore so they could use them to help someone else. “This is wonderful,” said Jason Pope, ReStore manager. Vance is hoping that another small store can open in her location. “It was a good run,” she said. “I enjoyed my time and thank the community for the business they’ve given me.”

About the Author ()

I started my journalism career in 2002 with a daily newspaper chain. After various stops with them, I am happy to be back home! I graduated from Coshocton High School in 1998 and received a Bachelor of Arts in Communication in 2002 from Walsh University. I also earned several awards while working for daily papers, including being honored by Coshocton County’s veterans for the stories I wrote about them. I am honored and ready to once again shine a positive light on Coshocton County. I also am the proud mother of a little girl named Sophia!
