Montgomery Locals Nov. 1, 2017
Montgomery has a lot to be proud of, and the Mummer’s Parade in Williamsport on October 21st was an excellent opportunity for our town to shine. Many congratulations to the residents of Montgomery for winning honors in multiple events at the parade. The Raider Marching Band was voted the #1 high school marching band, and the Varsity Cheerleaders were voted the #1 cheerleaders. The Montgomery Volunteer Fire Company was voted the #3 fire company, and the Summer Alive program won one of two Marshall’s Awards.
In the past few years we’ve seen so many good things happening in our town, such as the revitalization of the downtown business district, the Summer Alive Program, and the forming of the Montgomery Area Historical Society. We’ve also seen new traditions form, such as the Fall Festivals held by the Montgomery Volunteer Fire Company and the Oak Grove Community Center. We are living in an era when many things seem to be falling apart, but the citizens of this town are standing up and making positive changes that are benefitting everyone.
I’m so proud of my hometown. I love this place, and I want to thank all of my fellow townsfolk who make this a great community to live in.
THOT “Strange, isn’t it? Each man’s life touches so many other lives. When he isn’t around he leaves an awful hole, doesn’t he?” It’s a Wonderful Life
Birthday wishes are sent to Bo Steward, who will be celebrating another year on November 6th. Enjoy your day, Bo!
