The hills of Montgomery were alive this past week with the sounds of Homecoming. I was fortunate to be able to take part in this annual celebration that brings the Montgomery community and school together. This year’s celebration held extra meaning because it was paired with the Montgomery/Muncy “shoe” football game. The game and festivities were kicked off with Montgomery Virtuoso alumni singing the National Anthem and Alma Mater. The Marching Band had a tremendous field show for the occasion. Heart was evident in all of our players. Although a loss, Montgomery fought until the clock ticked down to the last second.
I would like to acknowledge our senior football team members, marching band members, and cheerleaders. The last Muncy game is always a big deal in the minds of our students. Paired with Homecoming, it was a night our seniors can all be proud of.
The court was announced and princess and queen crowned during halftime of the game. The court entered the field on four-wheelers in true Montgomery fashion.
Revitalize Montgomery continues to work to beautify our community. They are to be commended on their efforts. The committee encourages community members to attend their meetings as well as take part in their various projects.
