Hughesville locals

By Staff | May 15, 2012

Congratulations Elly Sherman for winning an award for the essay and art contest held at the Lycoming County Courthouse to honor Law Day. As a 7th grade student here in Hughesville, you were the only one who placed from our area.

Kudos to Hughesville Rotary for a great tasting meal on Saturday and staying up all night at the fire hall cooking that pig outside for the BBQ sandwiches.

Try to catch the Arts Festival at the Junior Senior High School tonight and tomorrow night. Both nights will feature a live concert at 7 p.m. and art displays of the students will be shown in the gym.

All day gobbler season started Monday and will end May 31. According to the Game Commission even though we had an early spring, there is still plenty of time to “harvest a gobbler.” Also starting this week the commission reported that hunters can hunt one half hour before sunrise to one half hour after sunset.
