Montgomery locals Nov. 16, 2016

By Staff | Nov 16, 2016

It’s hard to believe that we are about halfway through November. Although we’ve yet to enjoy turkey and stuffing, Christmas lights and decorations are going up, catalogs are coming in the mail, and toy commercials are becoming more frequent. Sadly, it’s also time for a less amusing seasonal tradition – cold weather. On the upside, it justifies drinking hot chocolate.

Yes, I know I’ve whined about heat and humidity during the summer, but if any of you can think of a safe and legal way to scientifically manipulate the atmosphere so it can be 70 degrees year round with no humidity, please do so right away. If you succeed, I’ll write a really nice article about you in The Luminary.

Congratulations to Montgomery Elementary School for hosting another successful Veteran’s Day program. The touching event treated local veterans to programs by the children, crafts made by the children, and refreshments.

If you or someone you know is in need of warm clothes for the winter, the First United Methodist Church provides vouchers for a free bag of clothing of your choice from Nay’s Not Quite New thrift store. You can leave a message on the church’s answering machine at (570) 547-6948.

Be sure to visit the Montgomery Area Public Library and check out a book to get an entry for their monthly drawing. The prize is a ten dollar gift certificate to Thad’s or The Station House.
