Hughesville Locals Aug. 27

By Staff | Sep 2, 2014

Labor Day weekend already? I don’t think I’m the only one who thinks we’ve come to the end of summer in a rush. It seems like I was just visiting the Fair, and now it’s time to get the stadium seats ready to go to some high school football games. I certainly have enjoyed the ability to use a window fan to cool the house at night, and really didn’t miss humid, hot weather, except that now I feel like I am not ready for cold weather to be approaching. And if summer went by so fast, I am afraid that if I blink, people will tell me we’re on the final countdown to Christmas!

Congratulations to Josh Fry! I just learned that he is the latest HHS Spartan Marching Band alumnus to become a member of the Penn State Blue Band! Way to go, Josh ?we’ll all be watching for you, and we’re proud of you.

Along with the change of seasons, there are a few things of which we all should be aware. Many local churches had adjusted their worship schedules for the summer months. Now those service times are being returned to the ?normal? times.

Trinity Evangelical Lutheran Church, 120 South Main Street, Hughesville, invites everyone to ?’Rally Sunday?’ on September 7 to begin a new year of Sunday School classes that will begin at 9:30 a.m. each week, followed at 10:30 with the weekly worship service.

Trinity is also welcoming a new organist, Mr. Dan Shuman, who will begin his duties on September 7. Bethany and Christ United Methodist churches have been holding joint services, alternating locations each week. After Labor Day they will resume their regular service schedule. Bethany is located at the corner of Second and Academy Streets, and Christ Church is at 148 South Main Street. Hughesville Friends Church will soon resume a schedule of two services on Sunday mornings.

Other churches in the area may have adjusted worship times so be sure to check with the congregation of your choice so that you will know when to arrive!

September always has many options for your entertainment, as well as fund-raisers for many local charitable and educational organizations. The East Lycoming Historical will hold their annual sidewalk event on Sept. 13 with many items of interest, baked goods, and ?bargain basement? articles. That same weekend is usually packed with lots of options, so mark your calendar, and watch for more details.

The Hughesville-Muncy Book Club will be reading Dante’s ?Inferno? from ?The Divine Comedy? for their September 20 meeting, so get your copy now so you’ll be ready for the lively discussion. The club will meet at 10:30 a.m. at the Hughesville Area Public Library, 146 South Fifth Street. October, November, and December book club meetings will be held at the Muncy Public Libray on South Main Street, Muncy.
