Muncy Locals Oct. 11, 2017
October has been a delightful month so far. Harvest festivals lead into craft festivals, and soon the holidays will be upon us. There was a craft and market fair in front of Tractor Supply in Muncy Township as I was headed to the farmer’s market in Williamsport on Saturday morning. It was an opportunity for local vendors to showcase their goods and services. I found a vendor from Warrensville who had some fresh brown eggs and cheese made from raw milk.
If you are still doing some housecleaning during these warm days, the Lycoming Animal Protection Society (LAPS) is having an indoor yard fundraiser on Sat.

Williamsport on Fri. Nov. 3 from 10-6. The sale will be Saturday from 8-2:30.
Visitors going to the Skilled Nursing & Rehabilitation Center in Muncy are reminded to check out the Gift Box located in the main lobby. It is open Mondays through Fridays from 8:30 to 4:30 and is now all decorated for the fall season with a great selection of gift ideas such as jewelry, sweatshirts, hats, flowers and more. Volunteers are there to help you with any purchases and all proceeds benefit the rehab center.
