Montgomery Locals Feb. 27, 2019
Do you remember for years that stereotypical belief about small towns which was “There’s nothing to do”? Thankfully that’s not true in Montgomery. There are plenty of things to do and ways to get involved in a huge variety of areas, and those opportunities will increase as the weather gets warmer.
You can join an organization if you choose. The Lions Club helps with charities and organizes the Egg Hunt each year. The Montgomery Area Historical Society provides endless fascinating pieces of town and local history through their Open Houses as well as the Third Thursday program, all of which are open to the public for free. Of course there are numerous kids sports programs to get involved with throughout the year, and our local fire companies need volunteers.
However, you don’t have to join a formal organization. Maybe you have a job that varies your shifts each week and set commitments aren’t practical. You can paint rocks for Red Raider Rocks, you can attend school programs that are open to the public, you can get a plot at the Community Garden when it opens in May and have plenty of opportunities to socialize while growing your own food. The library has a variety of programs at different times throughout the month.
Montgomery is a great town to live in, and it’s as vibrant as we make it. So let’s make sure that the current generation of young people enjoy this town as much as we did growing up.
