Hughesville Locals Mar. 26

By Staff | Mar 25, 2014

How long do you think it will be until we begin to complain about the heat? Our weather variations are not the most extreme in the nation, but not far from the top of the list, I think. I find that as I get older, I am more prone to complain about the cold than the heat ?although the humidity still causes me to have black thoughts. Let’s all hope for a hot summer ?with low humidity levels! (But just enough rain to keep us out of a drought, of course! There’s no point in wishing if you can’t have perfection!)

Have you visited the East Lycoming Historical Society Museum? The volunteers are working diligently at several cleaning and repair projects so that the museum is ready for this year’s opening day of Saturday, April 5. Museum hours are generally from noon to 3 on Saturday and Sunday afternoons. Hours may be expanded once summer arrives, but be sure to check the notice posted on the museum doors. There is an amazing amount of interesting and unique memorabilia, and the historical displays are sure to please.

If you enjoy boating, you should encourage your friends to join you in attending the upcoming Boating Safety course that is being offered by the United States Coast Guard Auxiliary. Participants will receive a boating certificate if they attend both sessions and will qualify for the state boating certificate upon successful completion of the course. Jet Ski operators and all persons who were born after January 1, 1982 who wish to operate a boat with a motor of 25 Hp or more are required by law to successfully complete a recognized boating course.

The schedule has been published for trout stocking of the local waterways, so it’s time to get your hip-waders and fly-rods out of the closet and ready to start the fishing season! It’s always an amazing sight to see the fishermen lining the banks of Muncy Creek on the first few days of the season ? I’m not good enough at fly-casting to be that close to other people, but it is a fun way to spend time in central Pennsylvania!
