Local Business Ribbon Cutting Proves Success in Progress with Support

MOOSIC, PA– “It’s always great when small businesses come to the plate,” Lackawanna County Commissioner Patrick O’Malley’s sentiment that echoed throughout C&S Athletic Club’s Ribbon Cutting ceremony October 23 in Moosic.  Showing area progress is a dish well received, O’Malley was joined by several area officials eager to offer their support and well wishes to C&S owners Carl and Stacey Lutkowski as they move forward with renovations at their 729 Main Street site.

With bright green branding throughout; a building that once stood vacant for close to five years, now illuminates a fresh new look surrounding the latest in state of the art training equipment. Unceasing in their efforts, the young couple invited the group to tour additional space under renovation as the highly visible spot continues reflecting business progress that translates to community progress.

“Carl and Stacey are doing great things,” noted Riverside School District Superintendent Paul Brennan as he admired the surroundings. Frequently passing the site in his travels, he recalled its past and the inspiration C&S has reflected on its neighbors stating, “It’s the people in the place that make the difference.”

Lutkowski delivered heartfelt words of gratitude to all that have contributed to what the athletic club has become and will become as the move forward. “We wouldn’t be where we are today without you,” he said smiling back at Stacey holding their young daughter Peyton then to family, friends and public officials filling the room. With a swift snip of the massive scissors, thunderous applause erupted.

O’Malley later invited others considering opening their own business to “Jump in the pool and take a chance,” adding “YOU control everything you do.”
