Hughesville Locals Jan. 10, 2018

By Staff | Jan 10, 2018

Happy New Year! What might this year bring for all of us? We can all think of many ways our lives could be enriched and our joy increased. I hope that everyone will enjoy all the blessings each day brings.

One blessing for us locally is the recent warm-up from the bone-chilling cold temperatures we had last weekend! Single digit, and below-zero temperatures are not the kind of winter weather that I want to see. I do like to have snow on the ground, because without it, everything looks so dismal, but I don’t like to feel like my lungs are freezing just because I left the house for a short while. I really appreciate all those people whose jobs make it necessary for them to spend time outside. Please make sure that you and your family members are well bundled up whenever you leave shelter!

Congratulations to the Hughesville High School competitive cheer squad for winning the title of District Champs last weekend! These student-athletes work hard all year, and they are tireless in their support of their classmates. Great job!

A favorite website that I check occasionally to be aware of what is happening in the borough is www.hughesvillepa.org.www.hughesvillepa.org.

Recently, I noticed that there is currently an open seat on our Borough Council, representing Ward One. If you are a registered voter and reside in that ward, you are eligible to submit your name for appointment by the current council members. This is a great way to be aware of the things going on and to have a chance to help make Hughesville an even better place in which to live. Please think about being more involved in our local decisions and leadership.

Hughesville Area Public Library is a wonderful place to visit for energizing your winter. With all the best reading material, jigsaw puzzles to trade or purchase, and programs to delight young and old, HAPL will help you enjoy your winter evenings, even when the cold and snow keep you indoors.

I neglected to remind you earlier that the Picture Rocks Lions Club has delivered this year’s supply of their wonderful sauerkraut to local grocers. If you haven’t served any of this annual treat to your family, make sure to get some soon, before the supply runs out. Besides being tasty, sauerkraut is a healthful source of many vitamins, and the delightful tang and crunch really wake up your taste buds!

Have a great week!
