Montgomery Locals Dec. 3

By Staff | Dec 2, 2014

I trust that all of you had a blessed and relaxing Thanksgiving. It was nice to have some down time without a packed schedule of events. My family enjoyed time together as well as putting up our tree. I also found quite a few good deals on Black Friday, but was able to do all of my shopping from my couch. I have discovered that online deals are more enjoyable to me than battling crowds.

The Thanksgiving weekend is also important to many in our area because of the pending kick-off to Buck season. Good luck to all area hunters. Be safe!

A few business community members were invited to meet the State & Local Government class at the high school last Friday. Mr. Laidacker and his students are making plans to become more iinvolved in the Montgomery community! They have organized a contest for the “Best Christmas Decorated House in Montgomery”. You will soon be able to get entry forms from local businesses who have all donated some really nice prizes.

The class plans to attend all of the monthly Montgomery Borough meetings. They will also be working on a local newsletter. It’s great to have the students and their teachers involved!

His Trolly will be in place in front of the Borough Maintenance building next to the Post Office. Saucy Sam is bringing their food truck, and there will be a focus on “caring and sharing” with a Toys for Tots box and also a box for donations to Footsteps of Montgomery Food Bank.

If you have a craft that you can sell, or an organization that would like to participate please let us know. We’re hoping to have some carolers from the High School. Tina Tickle will be raffling off some of her Christmas decorative slates that she has painted. She will also be selling and maybe taste testing her awesome Chicken Potpie as a fund raiser for Revitalize Montgomery. Everyone is welcome to participate.
