Montgomery Locals June 11

By Staff | Jun 10, 2014

It is difficult to believe that another school year has come and gone. Montgomery High School graduated 67 students in its 2014 class. Many of the students will be attending 2-4 year collegiate programs while others are already enlisted in the military. Congratulations to Matt Reinhart, valedictorian, and Bethany Hipple, salutatorian. Both students will be attending Lycoming College in the fall to pursue degrees in education.

We opened our pool this past weekend and are hoping for continued beautiful weather in order to enjoy it this summer. We are looking forward to it being the centerpiece of a Father’S Day picnic this Sunday.

“How to Train Your Dragon” will be released this Friday. It seems to be getting great reviews from the critics and may be a great outing for kids who need some quality summer entertainment. I plan to see it this weekend and will give my review in next week’s column.

The Elimsport United Methodist Church will be holding a blood drive on Thursday, June 12. The event will be held in the church basement.

The next Second Saturday event in Montgomery will be this Saturday, June 14 downtown and at Heritage Park behind the Library which is getting new windows. There will be live music and plenty of space for vendors and clubs.

The Montgomery Footsteps Food Bank is looking for people to step forward and offer an hour of service for the “Feeding the Kids” program for the months of June and July. The food part is taken care of. Jen, from the program, is looking for people to work with the kids for an hour after they eat. If you have a talent, or interest, or life lesson that you would like to share with the kids, this is a call for volunteers. It might be a safety program, music lesson, nature study, poetry writing, painting, or crafting. Jen would love to hear from you! Share your talent!

Many area churches are planning their summer Bible School programs. Please contact me with any information regarding these events at cmcnear@montasd.org.
