Muncy Locals Sept. 19, 2018

By Staff | Sep 19, 2018

There’s too much to do in this little town! The weekend was filled with a whirlwind of activity in the tri-town area, and lots to mention about some major events during the week as well such as the senior expo. This was a wealth of information as I came out with an overload of material. The main issue I noticed at several of the vendors’ tables was on identity theft. With the advancement of technology, some helpful tips were given out on protecting our personal information. Fortunately we have new medicare cards now and our social security numbers are not revealed on them. I was able to get mine laminated at the senior health expo last week. I also learned from Gary Peck that the Ben Franklin Pharmacy in Muncy Creek Township offers personalized medication packaging and free prescription delivery plus an app to download to send in and pick up prescription refills. This is a great convenience for older adults.

On Saturday, the day started with taking my granddaughter to the SuperStars drumming class at the ELYMCA, and from there we went to the Muncy Corvette show. This is a big event for Muncy. The cars were lined up on both sides of the street from Penn Street down North Main Street to the Muncy Historical Society. They also had a kids choice this year so they could vote for their favorite car and the Muncy FBLA sponsored the kids section that included a bounce house, snow cones and face painting. The artist section was in the Muncy Bank & Trust parking lot where only one of a kind unique local crafters and artisans featured some fine art. I purchased a glass pumpkin, an original made by glass artist, Joseph DeSisto of Montoursville and some hand painted ceramic coasters from Crystal Mallard. I was very impressed with these tree gems made by James Meckley, and uniquely hand carved. The weather was perfect and this event is always one of Muncy’s finest.
