The final Montgomery tree planting began this past Monday and will be completed today. It has been great to see the town beautification process evolve. These last trees are now lining portions of Montgomery Street. There are also new shrubs in the park and a dogwood tree across from the library. Thank you to all of the community and committee members who have been working tirelessly to make this project possible.
Revitalize Montgomery has also launched a Facebook page. The community is encouraged to visit the site and leave comments.
If you have not done so recently, be sure to check out the new and improved Montgomery Area School District website. There are many updates to the site and we now offer access to our weekly broadcasts filmed by our high school students as well as a link to our newly released Raider’s Digest web newspaper.
Also, take a moment to visit the Montgomery Borough website (www.montgomeryborough.org). On the site you will find interesting information about the history of our town as well as news concerning the Watershed project and Revitalization project.
The Montgomery Area Historical Society is working with the Montgomery Area Public Library to feature historical and/or community window displays. Photos and displays aim to highlight events held in the borough and surrounding area.
