Montgomery Locals Nov. 11, 2015

By Staff | Nov 12, 2015

As we celebrate Veteran’s Day this week, please take a moment to walk or drive down Main Street, part of Montgomery Street, Henry Hand Road and Heritage Park. While there is no formal celebration planned, there are eight new “Hometown Hero” banners on display throughout town. These are in addition to last year’s banners, bringing the town’s total to 21.

Montgomery students from grades pre-K through 12 will be honoring veterans this week in annual assemblies. In the elementary, each grade level will make a presentation while the high school will center their observance around a teen inspiring theme.

Veterans will be honored at the Montgomery Historical Society today, November 11 at 7:00 p.m. All local veterans and their families are encouraged to attend. The event will be held in the Adam Room below the library and will feature MAHS member Marion McCormick speaking on the WWII B-17 Bomber “San Antonio Rose”. This was the aircraft that crashed February 21, 1944 in the Netherlands killing her brother, Lt. Delmar Decker, the plane’s navigator.

The next “Revitalize Montgomery” meeting will be Wednesday, November 18 at 10 a.m. in the Valley Rehab on Main Street. Also, a thank you from the committee for all who will be helping with tree planting on Friday morning. 14 more trees will be planted on S. Main Street with the assistance of Mike Dincher and his class from Penn College. Everyone is welcome to join in and help out. They will be there close to 8 a.m.

Virtuoso, the Montgomery High School music and theatre ensemble, will be presenting its fall play November 20 and 21 at 7:00 p.m. Students will be presenting the holiday classic, “It’s a Wonderful Life”. Tickets can be ordered at the door or pre ordered by following the link on the school website. Questions can be directed to cmcnear@montasd.org.
