Montgomery Locals June 17, 2015

By Staff | Jun 17, 2015

The reviews are in and it appears that “Jurassic World” is a hit among the pre-teen and teen crowd. My son went to see the movie on opening day and says it ranks among his favorite movies to date. Up until this release, he favored the original over the second and third installations. But, he is adamant that “Jurassic World” surpasses movies two and three. Please be advised that there is a PG-13 rating and there is some violence involved.

“Summer Alive” had a successful first week. All camp organizers are grateful for the help and contributions from businesses, community and teen volunteers. Please contact Pastor Dietrich if you are interested in helping with this worthwhile summer program designed for our kids’ wellness and education. Aide is still needed with food preparation and the signing in/out process. There are also still some openings if you haven’t registered your child yet.

Each Second Saturday event is on Main Street from 11:00 a.m. to 3:00 p.m. A reminder that there is no fee to set up a stand to advertise your businesses, crafts, highlight your organizations, or share the mission of your churches.
