Montgomery Locals June 25

By Staff | Jun 24, 2014

Montgomery was bustling this past week with its annual carnival. I attended the culminating parade ceremony on Saturday evening. The parade featured the high school band as well as fire and rescue vehicles. There were also various antique cars and tractors.

The Montgomery Alumni Association recently held its annual banquet. Scholarships were awarded to three 2014 graduating seniors. The evening featured great food, speeches and a performance by the Montgomery Jazz Band.

Looking for a summer day outing? Consider a trip to Montour Preserve. The preserve features beautiful nature trails, a fossil pit, picnic pavilions, and beautiful lake views. There are also seminars held year round and a concert will be featured July 6 with an afternoon of acoustic music.

The Elimsport and St. John’s United Methodist churches are currently running their annual Bible School program. Classes will run until Friday from 9:00 a.m. to 11:30 a.m. The theme is “Treasure Island”.

Many communities are gearing up for their annual July 4th celebrations. The Montgomery fireworks are scheduled to go off Thursday, July 3rd starting at dusk.

The Montgomery Footsteps Food Bank is still looking for people to step forward and volunteer an hour of service for the “Feeding the Kids” program for the months of June and July. Jen Bender from the program, is looking for people to work with the kids for an hour after they eat.
