Montgomery Locals Aug. 3, 2106
August is shaping up to be an eventful month in Montgomery. Although traditionally held in June, the carnival will be here and the fire company is using a different ride company this year. It should be interesting to see what types of new rides will be featured. It will also mark the first carnival since the new concession stand has been completed (although it was used during the fireworks).
Town children will be able to enjoy summer vacation during the entire month for the first time in decades. They won’t be hitting the books (or should I say “laptops”) until September due to renovating the building. Have fun during your extended summer break, students and teachers!
Birthday wishes are sent to Tony Harman, who will be another year older on August 3. Happy birthday to Danielle Heasley, who will be marking her special day on August 4.
