Just a reminder that the Muncy Library has some special gardening programs coming up soon. Learn about pest controls from the Master Gardeners and buy some perennials for your own garden from the Muncy Herb Guild. They take great care of them because the ones I bought from them last year are now thriving in my backyard, especially the wild strawberry plant and the horseradish (which is still in its container).
The Muncy Garden Club was also quite busy Saturday morning doing some cleaning up and planting flowers. I was able to help clear some weeds at the Muncy pool, which is going to open soon and has brand new lights installed for the summer season.
Don’t miss Muncy’s Last Friday on the 25th. The Muncy Historical Society is planning a nice celebration for all alumni with a “Walk Down Memory Lane” as well as unveiling an oral history project spanning eight decades.
And finally, do have a safe and wonderful Memorial holiday. My husband and I are planning a camping trip to Frances Slocum State Park, close to Wilkes-Barre. And because of the holiday, we will be closed on Monday. So the next issue of The Luminary will be out on Thursday, May 31.
