Montgomery Locals

By Staff | Nov 26, 2013

I wish you all a very Happy Thanksgiving this year. I urge you all to take a moment to ponder the true meaning of this holiday. Too often, we are bombarded with Black Friday specials, football games, and plans for hunting. While these events have become Thanksgiving traditions for many, the heart of the day is still about giving thanks for the good things and special people in your life.

It was a very busy week for me. Montgomery’s fall play, “Hiding in the Open”, ran this past Friday and Saturday. On behalf of the Virtuoso program, we would like to thank all of those who supported the production.

Revitalize Montgomery continues to work to beautify our community and they have planted more trees. 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 (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.

Contact me at cmcnear@montasd.org with any information or events you would like posted in this column.
