Muncy Locals May 31, 2018

By Staff | Jun 1, 2018

This time of year requires much patience while driving on the roads. Construction is inevitable and PennDOT just announced they are mounting an aggressive campaign to accelerate repaving work on interstates plus attack the potholes across Pennsylvania as part of a ‘Resurface PA’ initiative. I had to remind myself of this over the weekend while waiting for some paint lines to be finished.

Our regional airport will be getting an upgrade with the assistance of some state funds. Our governor said $150,000 dollars will be going towards the replacement of some hangar doors for a total project cost of $300,000.

A free day of fishing took place on Sunday in our state’s waterways. The PA Fish and Boat Commission allowed anyone to legally fish without a license and another “Fish For Free Day” will take place on Wednesday, July 4. You can borrow the equipment from some of the tackle places that are at the state parks.

Memorial Day services were held at the Muncy Cemetery on Monday after the annual parade. The Muncy Garden club had planted flowers along the cannons and the veterans monument, and the 5th grade sudents from Myers elementary school had placed new flags on the gravestones of the veterans.

If you want a new summer experience, sign up for one of Le Jeune Chef’s cooking classes led by chefs and student interns. The next one will be June 2 and will feature “Epicurean Traveler: Rome”. Just call 320-chef.

Don’t forget that every time you visit one of the historical museums or organizations over the summer and including up to November 18, you can register to win some prizes. There are 12 participating members. Just ask where to register, especially at special events.

This year’s theme at the Lycoming County Library system is “Libraries Rock.” Look for the special logo when you register your kids or grandkids. Kickoff at the Muncy Public Library is Monday, June 4.

And finally congratulations to all high school seniors who will be graduating this Friday.
