This year, I have had the honor of writing this article every week, bringing you what I
believe to be some of the great things about Montgomery. At the end of October, I will be moving to York, Pa, a city that will be a very different atmosphere from the town that has raised me, and I will no longer be writing this column. So for the next month, I will be immersing myself in all that the area has to offer, and highlighting the best parts for you. I truly believe that Montgomery is a unique borough, with wonderful “small-town charm”, and I promise to enjoy every last minute I’m here.
