Montgomery Locals Mar. 8, 2017

By Staff | Mar 8, 2017

This spring is shaping up to be a busy one for our town. There are many opportunities to volunteer in different community projects in the next few months, spring sports will be starting, the Egg Hunt will draw scores of happy little kids, and Borough elections will be held in May.

This year also marks the 125th anniversary of the Montgomery Volunteer Fire Company, so thank you to all of the current members, and those who have served in the past. Everyone in town can rest much easier knowing that you are watching out for us!
