Montgomery Locals July 8, 2015

By Staff | Jul 8, 2015

I hope everyone had a great Independence Day weekend. My family celebrated while on vacation in North Carolina.

If you are looking for a great family movie this week, consider “Inside Out”. Disney Pixar has once again created an incredible visual movie while creating a new and innovative story line. The characters in the film are the emotions within a young girl’s head and weave a story of how the inner workings of our brain battle to control us. It is fun and delivers a heartwarming message, reminding us all that it ts ok if each day is not perfect.

Need an activity to spark the creative side of your children? Consider the various summer camps offered at Centered Earth in Montoursville. My son attended a pottery camp this past week and has enjoyed previous camps at the location. All area school children are encouraged to attend. The Centered Earth website offers a list of courses for the summer months.

“Revitalize Montgomery” continues its busy schedule this summer. If interested, meetings are held twice each month. The first Wednesday of the month is an evening meeting at “Tickle’s Music” Store beginning at 7:00pm. The third Wednesday is a 10:00am meeting at “Valley Rehab” on Main Street. Each Second Saturday event is on Main Street from 11:00 a.m. to 3:00pm. 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. Participation is encouraged.

Free summer music concerts are being held in Montgomery Park on the last Thursday of each month through September. Concert times are 7:00 p.m. to 9:00 p.m. The next concert will be Thursday, July 30, featuring the Hootenany Oldies Band.

Please note that the Montgomery Area Senior Citizens will not meet during the month of July.
