Montgomery locals

By Staff | Mar 26, 2013

I think we have all finally adjusted to the time change. It was a rough few weeks, but the sun is slowly coming up earlier and making the mornings more bearable.

I took special notice of the sunrise this morning. I overheard our Photography teacher giving an assignment yesterday for students to take a sunrise photograph. He suggested that the perfect time was 7:15 a.m. on their way to school. His voice was stuck in my mind as I drove to work. He was right! The sunrise was absolutely beautiful at that time. It was one of those sights that put a lot into perspective for me. I typically spend my morning drive making mental lists and stressing about all that I have to do. Instead, I dedicated the remainder of my drive to focusing on the positives in my own life. I found myself thinking that I wanted to share that realization in this column today. We all need to slow down every once in awhile and take perspective of our lives. Prioritize. Are those things that make you the most upset really worth the anxiety?

If you need help with that perspective, consider the family in Montgomery recently displaced by fire.

This past week, there was a fire in the 100 block of Fredna Avenue in Montgomery. The American Red Cross is assisting the family by providing food and clothing. Families such as these need our help every day and so does the Red Cross. Consider making a donation. If you are interested, contact Kathy Smyser at (717) 475-7964. For more information on the Red Cross organization go to www.redcross.org/centralpa.

Montgomery continues to wait for the weather to catch up with Spring’s official arrival. Spring sports are in full practice mode at the school and our seniors are beginning to anticipate graduation.

Easter is right around the corner. Watch for area Easter egg hunts and notifications for church services.
