Montgomery Locals Mar.30, 2016

By Staff | Mar 31, 2016

The efforts of the Revitalize Montgomery are in full bloom literally. The small bank near the train tracks across from The Station House is sprouting a fresh crop of daffodils that were planted by the group last year. It’s nice to see some bright colors especially since the grass hasn’t quite recovered from the winter and the trees are still bare. Hopefully it’s a sign that warm weather is about to come soon!

If you haven’t been to Montgomery Library in awhile, be sure to take a trip upstairs to see the newly opened local history room. It’s about four times as large as the previous one. If you’re curious about town history or your own family history, it’s a very interesting place to get lost in for a few hours.

The new Summer Music in the Park series is about to kick off near the end of April. The first group to appear this year is Uptown Music Collective from Williamsport.

Hats off to the Montgomery Lions Club for another successful Easter Egg Hunt in Montgomery Park this past Saturday. Hundreds of children were delighted to fill their Easter baskets with goodies!

A group of four students in Montgomery Area High School’s broadcasting class have been recognized by the school board for their videography skills. In January, Isaac Dietrich, Ethan Litzelman, Cameron St. James and Brandon Philips created a film for School Board Appreciation Month, which superintendent Daphne Bowers enjoyed, the students said.

According to the video’s statistics, it has over 300 views.

If you would like to honor a veteran or current member of the armed forces, now is the time to order a Hometown Hero Banner.

THOT “Youth is not entirely a time of life; it is a state of mind. Nobody grows old by merely living a number of years. People grow old by deserting their ideals. You are as young as your faith, as old as your doubt; as young as your self-confidence, as old as your fear; as young as your hope, as old as your despair.” General Douglas MacArthur
