Montgomery Locals June 18

By Staff | Jun 20, 2014

The weather cooperated to help set the stage for a beautiful Father’s Day this past Sunday. I would like to take a moment to celebrate all fathers in their various roles and thank them for their guidance, love, and support. We celebrated with a grilled meat buffet. There were no vegetables in sight.

My son and I went to see “How to Train Your Dragon 2” on its opening day. I highly recommend this movie for ages 6 and up as well as for adults. The story line is accessible for younger audiences and entertaining for more mature audiences. As always, DreamWorks has interwoven a message of family and perseverance throughout the story line. This is a definite “must see” summer movie. It is also worth the 3D ticket price.

Another fun find this week was “The Glaze to Be” in the Williamsport Basin Street shopping center. I finally had the opportunity to experience this new business. The store is focused on pottery painting and caters to children and adults. There are also summer day camp options available for children. Be prepared that your projects need to be fired. Pick-up time is guaranteed within the week following your visit.

The annual Montgomery Fireman’s Carnival is currently running on the carnival grounds. The yearly celebration began this past Monday and will run through Saturday, June 21. Various food stands hosted by area vendors and organizations are available along with carnival rides. The parade will begin at 5 p.m.

You might enjoy music and a pig roast this Saturday at The Four Friends Winery and Vineyards in Montgomery. Doors open at 11 a.m. and fee includes an entire day of wine, food, and live entertainment.

The Fair will be open soon and Fair Books are available at Montgomery’s Pharmacy.

Renee Wagner owner of the Thrift Store will have a program in place for those who need clothing at the First United Methodist Church. For more information, call 547-6948.

The Montgomery Footsteps Food Bank is still 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!
