Hughesville locals Apr. 23

By Staff | Apr 25, 2014

After the long winter season and cold temperatures, it was a glorious Easter weekend, wasn’t it? I noticed that some of my tulips are so determined to bloom that they aren’t waiting for their stems to grow, but the flower is developing just above the base of the leaves! It looks rather strange, but I am glad they are blooming and not buried beneath snow.

It seems that work has been done on most of the trees that were marked for trimming and the stacks of limbs and branches along some curbs are quite impressive! We will all see an improvement in the appearance of our lovely tree-lined streets as the summer foliage develops.

Are you interested in purchasing locally produced food that is chemical and pesticide-free? Are you a local grower of such organic food products? You are invited to a free informational meeting called “Let’s build a food co-op”, this Thursday evening at the Hughesville Public Library.?All graduates of Hughesville High School are encouraged to attend the annual HHS Alumni Banquet on the Saturday evening of Memorial Day weekend. The Alumni Association is doing the final planning for this year’s events which will include special recognition given to graduates from class years ending in 4 and 9. It’s a great time to reconnect with friends from your high school years! Make your reservations now. For tickets phone Paul McCoy at 570-584-2277 or Tom Smith at 570-584-3531.

Don’t forget that the Rotary Club’s E-Cycling (Electronics Recycling) Event is this Saturday! This is a great way to help declutter your home and dispose of those outdated and obsolete televisions, computers, microwave ovens, etc. The club members will be accepting monetary donations to help pay for the associated fees.

Happy Easter season to all! Now that the weather is milder, watch for pedestrians and cyclists whenever you are driving in and around Hughesville.
