Muncy locals Jan. 27, 2016

By Staff | Jan 27, 2016

All kinds of inundated info kept hitting my emails on the weather last week such as cancellations, restricted driving lanes and speeds, safety tips, winter updates, heavy snow, emergency operations and more. It was quite hard to believe when it wall all over, there was nothing but a mere dusting, if that in the east Lycoming area. Yet within a few short miles all around us, there were blizzardly unproportional amounts of snow. Even Muncy had a little more than Hughesville and Montgomery, I was told.

Congratulations to the Muncy Skilled Nursing & Rehabilitation Center for receiving a 5 star rating by the Centers for Medicare & Medical Services (CMS). Their ratings help consumers and families compare nursing homes that provide us exceptional care.

If you want to give that old furniture a fresh new look, Blessings By Design in Muncy will be having some painting workshops in February with certified instructors who will be demonstrating some useful and artistic techniques. Stop in or call them at 570-220-5196 for dates and times.

The Mid-Atlantic Fruit & Vegetable Convention is set to be held this year in Hershey at the Convention Center on Feb. 2-4. Over 2,000 growers are expected to attend. Several workshops, a farm market bus tour and a trade show will be some of the features. For more information go to www.mafvc.org. Also the 10th annual cider contest will determine the best tasting cider produced in the region.
