POBC Keeping Their Skills in Shape (1)

“We just got done with a pickup game. It’s a way to get them going in the summertime, getting everybody ready and keeping their skills in shape for the season in November.”

(Local coach Joe Kirschner, who runs the Beaver Valley Basketball Association pulls together some of the kids that just wrapped up an evening of basketball at the courts at Brady’s Run Park. BVBA has several youth-aged teams, runs camps and clinics and is planning more events like tournaments and all-star games.)

Erin Ninehouser loves photography for its ability to reveal truths and insights that are often too difficult to capture with words. She believes, as Garrison Keillor says through his troubled yet triumphant character Barbara in Pontoon, that “the only sermon that counts is the one formed by our actions.” A native of New Castle, Erin has made her home in Ambridge where she lives happily with her wonderful husband Dave, their three adorable and hilarious cats, and their “old gentleman” dog, Max. Erin is excited to help tell the stories of the people of Beaver County. You can see more of her work on Facebook and connect on Instagram or Twitter.
