Muncy Locals Oct. Nov. 14, 2018

By Staff | Nov 15, 2018

Despite the blistery cold, the Veterans Day parade in Hughesville was a success. We captured as much as we could in photos. I also spent part of the day at the Muncy Historical Society’s art show and sale at the First UM Church in Muncy. It was a new location for them and the space seemed very accommodating and well lit featuring some of the best art I have ever seen. While on the museum tour, this Sunday, Nov. 18 is the last day to register for any Hunting For History prizes and the winners will be drawn on Friday, Nov. 21.

On Nov. 4 Meagan Murray reported that the Meagan’s Box Foundation made 51 care packages for kids in foster care. Each tote bag had a new pair of pajamas, stuffed animal, and a book. They were delivered to Children and Youth last Monday morning. Meagan said this was a new addition this year. Such a kind heart she has, and a wonderful family for helping her.

Nella Storm from the Muncy Shade Tree Commission has announced that new trees have been been planted in the Muncy vicinity by student volunteers from Penn College. More vibrant varieties were chosen this year such as red oaks, heritage oaks, sweet gum and American Tulip trees. She said that if you would like a free shade tree planted in the spring to call 570-546-3757 and you can decide or discuss which type of tree you want that is available.

Train shows are popular this time of year. The non-profit Loose Ties Model Railroad Club shows its electric trains in a free display every Sunday from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. at the Silver Moon Flea Market on Route 15, two miles north of Lewisburg in Union County. And this coming weekend the annual Will Huffman Toy Train Expo at Park Place in the historic district of Williamsport is always a family enjoyment. And thanks to the great sponors, it’s free.

Some interesting facts this month – tomorrow is America Recycles Day and marks Pennsylvania’s curside dropoff program of 30 years and it now reaches 94 percent of the state’s population. And today is National Clean Out Your Fridge Day – now that seems too big a chore.
