Montgomery Locals Mar. 26

By Staff | Apr 1, 2014

This week marked the one-month countdown to the Montgomery High School spring musical. We are very busy with preparations to perform Shrek, the Musical. We also welcomed back our State Band qualifiers and geared up for spring sporting events. The weather did not allow the season to get underway, but our student athletes are eager to get out on their respective fields and courts.

If you are looking for a family friendly movie, “Muppets Most Wanted” fits the bill. My son is 8 years old and said it is one of his favorite movies to date. As an adult, I was entertained by the many star studded cameos throughout the film.

The First Annual Montgomery Riverside/LEO Club 5K Walk/Run race will be held this Saturday, April 5. I registered to walk the race with family and friends. I have been training to run it, but the weather has not been cooperating with my workout schedule. It would be great to see a large turn out for this worthwhile cause. Registration is now open for the event, and the race will start at 9 a.m. at the Montgomery Park. To register call Joyce McRae at 570-547-1375.

Please consider contacting me at cmcnear@montasd.org with upcoming Easter celebrations and events. I would love to highlight area egg hunts as well as church services in this column.

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.
