There is a marked difference in the angle of the sunbeams coming through my windows, and the air just has a different feel, doesn’t it? This week the vernal equinox marks the beginning of six months time when the daylight hours are longer than the night, and we surely will feel the warming effect soon! I heard that the slow warm-up has helped us avoid high water and ice flows in the creeks and river, so it is definitely a good way to work our way into Spring.

The robins are ready for spring! I saw several in my yard during the rain last Wednesday, and despite the return of colder temperatures, I’ve seen more since then. Keep an eye out for the large flocks of geese that are heading north, too.

Our area will benefit greatly from all the support that was demonstrated for local non-profit organizations last week during the ?Raise the Region? event sponsored by the First Community Foundation of Pennsylvania. I’m sure that everyone could find at least one agency to support on the list of 210 who were registered. If you weren’t able to contribute through the online process, but are interested, any of your favorite charities will welcome your donation, your time, or contributions of material goods that can benefit their work. Contact them soon and lend your aid!

Spring sports teams in local high schools are beginning their regular schedules of games and matches. Take some time to go out and cheer for your favorites. The kids will be grateful for your support and you are sure to have a great time watching them demonstrate their skills.

I had a nice time last Friday watching the Muncy Jr/Sr High School production of ?The Music Man?! The music, the sets, and the costumes were combined with good acting to make a very enjoyable performance. Congratulations to cast, crew, instrumentalists, and directors!
