Montgomery Locals May 13, 2015

By Staff | May 14, 2015

It was a beautiful Mother’s Day weekend. I hope that all mothers had a special day of pampering and appreciation. Mine was spent with a delicious brunch, soccer, and a picnic dinner. Thank you to ALLL mothers and to those who serve as mentors and mothers.

Congratulations to the Montgomery Varsity Baseball team for its recent victory securing them a play-off position. Also, a special congratulations to Varsity Track athlete, Lexy Forrestal for earning a new school record in high jump this past Saturday.

Be sure to check out the Revitalize Montgomery Facebook Page. There are tons of great photos and updates. Feel free to add comments.

Nick’s Barber Shop, formerly located on Water Street in Muncy has not closed but has moved to a new location. The business is now located in Washington Square in Muncy beside the Dollar General.
