Accordionist Mike Mulligan, 18, of Tamaqua, chose to earn more money for college expenses by entertaining passersby in downtown Tamaqua by playing his accordion. He's had the instrument since he was eight and recently decided to learn. Mike, who also works at Heisler's Dairy Bar, stated that any extra money he earns playing his accordion will go towards his college tuition and other college expenses. Mike leaves for college in a few days and will major in meteorology. He is hoping to help further raise funds, if allowed, by playing his accordion at his Penn State College campus in State College.
