If you have a few minutes to spare, treat yourself to a walk among the business district of South Main Street. Empty storefronts now display works of local art that help enhance our town.

A group of volunteers were responsible for the eye-catching windows, timed with the second annual art invitational exhibition held last weekend by the Muncy Historical Society. The art will change with more seasonal decorations as the holidays arrive, and will stay in place until the new year. (see photo on page 10)
