Montgomery Locals Sept. 7, 2016

By Staff | Sep 8, 2016

Summer is nearing its end and school is back in session. I love the hustle and bustle of fall, the spectacular colors when the leaves change, the sound of dried leaves blowing in the breeze, the fun of back to school time, the craft shows and activities, apple cider, and candy corn. I am more than ready to trade the awful humidity for sweater weather.

I hope that all of the faculty, staff and students at the Montgomery Area School District have a wonderful year – especially the senior class. Make lots of memories because twelfth grade goes by in a hurry! Fall sports are in full swing, and I want to wish all of the Montgomery Red Raider sports teams a safe and victorious season.

If you know of a child in the Montgomery Area School District in need of backpack or school supplies, please call the Montgomery United Methodist Church at 547-6948 and leave a message. They will give away free backpacks and school supplies while supplies last.

Route 54 will be closed from School House Road to Brouse Road on September 11th beginning at 8:00 a.m. for the 9/11 Motorcycle Ride. Weis Markets will be accessible from Route 15.

The Montgomery Volunteer Fire Department is currently taking orders for a Hoffner’s Chef Salad Fundraiser. Salads can be picked up on Friday, September 30th around noon. The Fire Department can make arrangements for salads to be delivered to businesses with prior notice. Orders can be placed in by phone (547-1380), by e-mail (mvfc13@gmail.com), by Facebook messenger, or through any member. When placing an order please specify the number of salads, choice of dressing, name, and phone number. They are also hosting a two day Fall Festival on October 28-29, and are currently accepting vendor applications.
