Pennsylvania is one of those states where we always have to plan Halloween costumes to be roomy enough to fit over snowsuits, but this year snorkel gear may have been more in keeping with the weather conditions! The staff at the Hughesville Library decided that since they couldn’t do anything to change the approach of the “mega-storm”, they would do a poll of patrons who visited the library on Saturday, Monday, and Tuesday. People were asked to vote on the nickname they liked best for Hurricane Sandy after it merged with the other major front and high pressure zone. Look for results of the totally unscientific poll at the library or in this column next week. There are, of course many other reasons to visit the library, including the many new items that are added to the collection every month. Be sure to put the Hughesville Library on your list of frequent things to do.
Turkey and Pilgrim decorations will have very little time for display this year since we only have three weeks between Halloween and Thanksgiving. We’ll all need to do a quick changeover from the black cats and ghosts that have been in view the last few weeks. Hurricane Sandy did make many of us curtail the amount of things that could be left outdoors. Let’s hope November calms down and doesn’t bring meteorological surprises!
Local high school fall sports are drawing to a close. We can be very proud of all the effort and dedication that has been evident in the performances by teams all over our area. One of the traditional events will be the Hughesville versus Muncy football game to be held Friday, November 2 at Hughesville. There will undoubtedly be a huge crowd on hand for this contest. See you there!
