Montgomery Locals May 20, 2015

By Staff | May 20, 2015

I have been busy as the end of the school year draws near. This past week involved state testing and the prom. The regular seasons of our spring sports programs are wrapping up and play-offs are just around the corner.

The 2015 prom queen was Anita Holmes and king was Serge Cole. The winners were announced during the junior/senior prom on Friday evening.

Congratulations to junior, Lexy Forrestal who qualified for State competition in Track this past weekend in Athens. Lexy competes in the high jump event. The state competition will be held this weekend at Shippensburg University.

Montgomery events:

The Montgomery Varsity Baseball team will be competing in their first play-off game this Saturday at 1:30 p.m. The location is to be announced. The boys will be playing the winner of the Canton/Benton game.

On Saturday, May 23, the historical society and the federal prison will be opening the Stone Church and cemetery for visitors. Paul Metzger will be present from 2:00 to 4:00 p.m. to help anyone with questions on Deer Valley families and gravesites. If attending, please enter at the gate by the golf course.

The annual Memorial Day Parade will be held at 9 a.m. on Monday, May 25. It will start at the American Legion and proceed down Broad Street to the park where there will be bleachers set up for the program. Residents also are encouraged to bring lawn chairs as there is limited seating in the bleachers.

There will be a free Summer Music Concert from 7 to 9 p.m. in Montgomery Borough Park on Thursday, May 28 with live music from the McNett band. BBQ and ice cream available. Bring your lawn chair and a friend.

Are you aware of legal clearances necessary for everyone working with children? The Montgomery Public Library is hosting a free workshop on compliance with recent changes to the Pennsylvania law governing those who work with children. These changes are so broad that virtually anyone in any volunteer capacity is now subject to clearances. The workshop will be held Wednesday, June 3, at 6:30 p.m.
