Montgomery Locals Dec. 2, 2015

By Staff | Dec 3, 2015

The Christmas season is officially upon us. I enjoyed a wonderful Thanksgiving break with my family. We rarely venture out on Black Friday, but actually braved a store or 2 later in the day. It was one of the calmest Black Fridays I have ever witnessed. I still prefer sitting on my couch and ordering online to dealing with the crowds.

The Montgomery High School Broadcasting class will be making a brief appearance on WNEP Channel 16 during the noon weather forecast on Thursday, December 3. Students were challenged to reach 250 subscribers on their YouTube channel. The goal was met and the class will now be traveling to the studio to watch a live taping of the news, tour the studio and meet Tom Clark. Congratulations!

“Revitalize Montgomery” will be holding a visit with Santa Claus on Main Street in Montgomery on Saturday, December 5 from 11:00 a.m. to 3:00 p.m. There will be a Santa photo contest. Bring a “toy for Tots” and a can or box of Christmas themed food to enter a drawing to win a new boy’s or girl’s bicycle. There wll also be space for vendors. Call Becky for more information at 570-547-6289.

The Red Raider Foundation will be holding a Victorian Tea on Sunday, December 6 from 2 to 4 p.m. in the Seasons Restaurant located in the school.

The First Baptist Church of Elimsport has resumed its Kids Club on Sunday evenings from 6:30 to 7:45 p.m. All children ages 4 through 6th grade are invited to come for an exciting time of games, songs and Bible learning. Parents must register students in person on the first night they attend. Youth Group will be held for older students at the same time as Kids Club. This is open to anyone in grades 7 through 12. Questions can be directed to Pastor Todd at 570-547-6277.

Please consider following @MASDnews on Twitter or via our YouTube channel, The Raider Tube. Both of these digital mediums are created and maintained by the high school Broadcasting class. The intention is to help share Montgomery news and events with our community if they are unable to attend an event.

The next “Revitalize Montgomery” meeting will meet tonight at Tickle’s music Store. Recently they planted trees and they planted 33 trees on Fri. Nov. 13 on Main Street and in the flood zone in Montgomery. Mike Dincher, and Justin Shelinski from Penn College had 30 students from their classes help with the planting. It is a continuation of efforts with the Susquehanna Greenway Parthership to plant street trees in the borough leading from downtown Montgomery to the Susquehanna River.
