Veteran’s Day was observed this past Monday in many communities across the nation. As each year passes, I learn to value our veterans more and more. The majority of them do not ask for recognition. Rather, they hope for respect and a quiet appreciation for their service. You may be opposed to war, but you can always support a veteran. I would like to convey my sincerest thanks to all of our brave men and women, and their families, who have served and are still serving today.
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.
Also, take a moment to visit the Montgomery Borough website (“http://www.montgomeryborough.org”>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.
