Beginning this week, those nifty Muncy High School Alumni Association fleece jackets will be for sale at the Luminary. Although jacket sizes range from petite to 10x, a limited number of sizes will be on hand for immediate purchase. Call 546-8555 in advance to order your size; office hours are 9-4 p.m. Monday through Friday.

For the third consecutive year, The Luminary has agreed to be a drop-off site for Toys for Tots. Please consider purchasing a new toy, and placing it, unwrapped in our donation box. Office hours are 9-4 p.m. Monday through Friday.

Last Thursday’s parade was longer, and more elaborate. Especially humorously memorable was the street gorilla-meets-lawn mower gorilla moment. The parade was sponsored by the Muncy Professional and Business Association.

The tailgate party sponsored by the Muncy and Hughesville alumni associations prior to the football game last Friday was well received. Members report preparing 20 pounds of Country store hotdogs for the event, with a handful leftover. Grateful thanks to Mark Schneider and Michele Michael, who assisted with tables.

Did you enjoy reading the Sunday Grit years ago? Author Robin Van Auken has written Sunday Grit: A Newspaper Legacy a book concerning the publication, and will appear at a book-signing here at The Luminary office, on Saturday, Nov. 15, 1-3 p.m. Refreshments will be provided. See page 7 for additional details.
