By Staff | Sep 14, 2015

I hope you all enjoyed a great Labor Day weekend. My weekend was spent at home with various house projects that we hope to finish before the weather changes. It was also an exciting week at school as our athletic teams got underway with regular season games and auditions were held for the fall play.

Thanks to the Montgomery Boy Scouts for cooking up funnel cakes and hot dogs, and Patty for cooking hamburgers and french fries at the last Montgomery music jam in August with the McNett Band. There was a great turnout.

The Muncy Creek Watershed Association will meet this Thursday, September 10 at 7:00 p.m. in Montgomery Borough Hall. Mr. Rob Etters, branch manager of Hillis Carnes Engineering Association will be giving a presentation on “infiltration testing and how soil types affect infiltration rates”. This is a very interesting and important topic due to the ongoing issues with storm water in our region. A light snack will be provided after the presentation.

Girl Scout sign ups will be held on Monday, September 14 at the Montgomery Area Public Library from 6:30 to 7:30 p.m. Consider joining Girl Scouts and explore fun and exciting activities that cover every girls’ interests like discovering the outdoors, growing financial literacy skills, running a girl-led business with the Girl Scout Cookie Program and, of course, making new friends.
