Mary Beth Page is now the branch manager at the Northern Cambria office, while Randy McLaughlin has moved to the University Heights office as branch manager.
Both have been branch managers at AmeriServ for more than three years.
McLaughlin is originally from the Richland Township area, so it is a homecoming for him to be working at the Eisenhower Boulevard office.
Page lives in East Taylor Township and is looking forward to meeting new customers and businesses in the Northern Cambria area.
The AmeriServ Northern Cambria office at 4206 Crawford Ave. is being remodeled to better serve customers.
Local jewelers go on diamond-buying trip
Dan and Fran Decker, owners of Decker Diamond Jewelers in Ebensburg, recently returned from a trip to Antwerp, Belgium, to purchase diamonds directly from the manufacturers.
Dan Decker said 85 percent of the world’s diamond production travels through Antwerp, where the precious stones are sorted and sent to diamond cutters around the world. He said they selected diamonds that will be in the store’s showcases in time for Christmas.
Decker said, Izzy Ilkowitz, a well-known diamond cutter, soon will be visiting the store.
