Fall is my favorite season. For me, the most enjoyable part of the autumn months is the “picture” of colorful leaves painted against a beautiful blue sky. The weather has cooperated this past week with giving us a stunning visual of the beginning of this season.
At the most recent Revitalize Montgomery meeting, committee members talked about the new grant request from the Susquehanna Greenway Partnership that would help Montgomery with getting a good volunteer base to complete two more projects. Attendees liked the idea of a trail/path at the edges of the Montgomery Borough Park that would lead people to the riverfront. The committee was also excited to have new community members in attendance. There are discussions for upcoming events such as holding an Open House on Main Street. Remember, 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.
