Ephrata Woman Wins Senior Title!Peggy Kurtz Keller, 60, of Ephrata, recently captured the coveted title of “Ms Pennsylvania Senior America 2017.” Ms Keller was among 12 contestants over the age of 60, who competed in the following categories: interview, talent, evening gown and “philosophy of life.”

The competition took place  on July 30th at the Red Lion Hotel Harrisburg/Hershey.
