Montgomery Locals Apr. 18, 2018

By Staff | Apr 18, 2018

After months of what seemed to be a winter that was never going to end, spring finally came to Montgomery on Friday and brought along our long lost friend summer. The temperature in Montgomery hit a wonderful 85 degrees with plenty of sunshine, despite the fact that flurries were falling earlier in the week. Hopefully this means the end of winter coats and ice scrapers.

Flowers also sprang up at the Montgomery Area Public Library on Friday afternoon when children were invited to come and finger paint pictures of flowers. A variety of new programs are being offered at the library averaging about two activities each week. Many are geared for children and teenagers, with plenty of family events planned as well. These activities often include crafts as well as books, giving young people the opportunity to express their creativity, develop their artistic skills, and expand their knowledge of stories and literature.
