Hughesville locals

By Staff | Dec 11, 2012

Just three weeks left on the calendar until I start writing the wrong year on everything thank goodness for backspace buttons and ink erasers!

I had a nice treat this past weekend when I attended the Hughesville High School Jr./Sr. Class Play. The performance, with the simple set surrounded by the audience, was entertaining, thought-provoking, and altogether well done. The students and their director, Ms. Lorrie Staivisky, can be very proud of the production.

Many students from all over the East Lycoming School District are currently demonstrating their skills in both athletics and the arts. The annual Winter/Christmas concert will feature elementary, junior high, and senior high choruses and bands performing many seasonal songs and carol arrangements.

The Varsity Boys’ and Girls’ basketball teams, and the wrestling squad have begun their winter sports seasons. There will be many opportunities for all of us to watch these students as they demonstrate the skills they have been developing. Pick up a schedule of games and matches and enjoy an evening out while you cheer for the teams!

Although the “5 to Drive” GHBA promotion has ended (with many delighted prize winners!), there is still plenty of time to visit all the merchants in the greater Hughesville area to aid in your search for the “perfect present.” Downtown looks great with the holiday lights and wreaths, and while I know there are many who disagree, I am hoping that we’ll get at least a moderate amount of snow soon. I feel much more like it’s Christmas time when the precipitation is in the form of snow instead of rain.

Be sure to check out the Hughesville Library the rest of this month. In the display cabinet, library staff members are sharing “Some of Our Favorite Things” with items from their varied collections. From teacups to NASCAR, it is a visually attractive potpourri.
