Grand re-opening: McDonald's celebrates renovation completion

— VALLEY TWP. — Presentations, a ribbon cutting ceremony, Ronald McDonald,  food samples and cake were part of the Danville McDonald’s Restaurant’s grand re-opening and ribbon-cutting festivities.

The restaurant, at the Danville exit of Interstate 80, underwent an inside and outside facelift which was completed right before the Christmas rush, managing partner Keith Artley said during the festivities Friday.

He thanked the crew and Manager Jenn Newcomer, saying, “Our folks handled it well.”

Artley said the restaurant is very busy and especially bustling during the travel season in the summer and during holidays.

Restaurant owner Doug Doherty commended Artley for a “marvelous job.”

“We hope to see you all frequently,” Doherty told the crowd attending.

Artley thanked the staff, headed by Manager Jenn Newcomer.

Ronald McDonald cut the ribbon, made up of $250, along with others participating including Newcomer, Artley’s wife Reyne, Kelly Cornell of McDonald’s and Danville Ronald McDonald House officials.

The money was presented to the Danville Ronald McDonald House. Accepting the donation were House Executive Director Mike Turlis, Joan Williams, Chris Lehman and Robert Hock. Williams is program supervisor/volunteer coordinator. Lehma serves as program assistant/Camp Dost coordinator and Hock is records coordinator.

The restaurant donated items from the renovation, including chairs and patio blocks, to Boy Scout Camp Lavigne. Mike Benjamin, camping committee chairman of the Columbia-Montour Boy Scout Council, thanked Doherty and Artley by presenting them with the Boy Scout print “All Together.”
