Hughesville Locals May 3, 2017

By Staff | May 10, 2017

May is one of the best months of the year especially after a snowy, cold winter. I am delighted with the profusion of perennials that have taken charge of my flowerbeds, and am now faced with the happy “problem” of having to divide and thin some of the more vigorous varieties. It’s hard to throw them away, so I am frequently creating more areas for my husband to mow around — he would like me to curb my enthusiasm.

May is also a busy time in the community. Some organizations are going into high gear for the summer months and their annual activities. The Hughesville Volunteer Fire Department is making final preparation for their annual carnival, which begins on June 5, and provides a huge portion of the yearly operating budget.

The Lycoming County Fair Association is busy with all the many aspects of producing the fair in mid-July. And the Tri-Town (Hughesville, Muncy, Montgomery) Relay for Life event is coming up on May 19. Mark your calendars now for these highlights of the season.

Are you one of the many local residents who travel in and out of the borough using Water Street? I have only needed to use that route a few times since the street project began. I know we will all enjoy the improvements that are taking place, but none of us likes to wait for single-lane traffic. Be cautious when you are in that area, and watch for the changes of traffic patterns and detours that will be happening throughout the summer.
