Montgomery Locals May 4, 2016

By Staff | May 2, 2016

The summer hasn’t officially begun yet, but it already looks like it’s shaping up to be an eventful one for Montgomery. The first Arts & Music in the Park event took place last Thursday, where a group of incredibly talented young people from the Uptown Music Collective performed. Despite the pouring down rain, the weather didn’t dampen their enthusiasm. Montgomery Art and Music in the Park will have other events on May 19, June 16, and July 21. Free art workshops will start at 6:00 p.m. for children, followed by live music from 6:30 to 8:30 p.m.

If you’re looking for other events this summer, be sure to check out the Summer Reading Program at the Montgomery Area Public Library. The program runs from June 8 to July 15 and will host a variety crafts, performances, and workshops. Remember that if you borrow books from the library, you will be entered into a monthly drawing to win a gift certificate for Thad’s or The Station House.

If you would like to honor a loved one with a Hometown Hero banner, the order forms are available at Montgomery Weis and area township and borough buildings.

THOT “The important thing is not to stop questioning. Curiosity has its own reason for existing. One cannot help but be in awe when he contemplates the mysteries of eternity, of life, of the marvelous structure of reality. It is enough if one tries merely to comprehend a little of this mystery every day.” -Albert Einstein
