Podcasters Plan ‘Why Not Shamokin’ Gathering Thursday

SHAMOKIN – Two entrepreneurs have been focusing on getting more people involved in revitalizing Shamokin. Chad Evans of Stone State Entertainment, and Chad Lauer of Lauer Media, have been working on the ‘Why Not Shamokin’ effort, trying to “spread positivity,” and as they say, “turn adversity into motivation.  Chad Lauer says they’ll have some free food at their first public event, “Its not even about giving out something for free, it’s about creating momentum and our goal is…if we can create momentum every week and every day, the goal is it will encourage others to do the same. It’s not just going to be two of us, its going to take a lot of people to get this town back to where it once was and where we want it to go.”

They are having an open meeting in the Illumination Station Park in Shamokin Thursday from 11 to 1. They’ll have free hot dogs and water for participants…if people want to work on helping Shamokin. They have a website, www.whynotshamokin.com and produce a ‘Lauer Power’ podcast featuring guests who they identify as doing superlative work in their lives.
