Montgomery Locals Aug. 27

By Staff | Sep 2, 2014

School is officially back in session. The Montgomery Area School District is excited to be kicking off the iPad initiative in grades K-12. Teachers have been busy with in service trainings to prepare for this new teaching tool.

Fall sports programs are also underway. Please take the time to support our young athletes. The first football game is home this Friday evening.

Revitalize Montgomery would like to take the opportunity to thank everyone who has been participating in their meetings and in the Second Saturday events. Committee members will be meeting tonight, August 27, at 6:00 p.m. at Tickles Music Store. Mark your calendars for a second meeting on September 10 at 10:00 a.m. at Valley Rehab. The next Second Saturday event will be Saturday, September 13 from 11:00 a.m. to 3:00 p.m. Vendors are always invited to attend. School clubs and organizations are also encouraged to take part.

The Elimsport and St. John’s churches will be combining services on August 31 for Labor Day weekend. Brunch will follow the service.

Oak Grove Community Center will be holding its September breakfast on September 7 from 8:00 a.m. to 11:00 a.m.

Consider joining the Montgomery Historical Society. The group is very active in the Montgomery borough and surrounding area and has recently rekindled their newsletter mailings. In the hopes of enticing participation, I will be providing a fun fact from the society over the next few columns. Did you know that Clinton Township was established in 1825 from Washington Township? It was named for DeWitt Clinton, who was then the governor of New York.

Take a moment to visit the Montgomery Borough website (www.montgomeryborough.org). On the site you will find interesting information about the history of our town as well as news concerning the Watershed project and Revitalization project.
