Muncy Locals May 1, 2019

By Staff | May 2, 2019

Time is spinning quickly, in my eyes. A parade in Hughesville was sadly missed, and so was opening day of Little League. There is just too much to do in our little neck of the woods. I did attend some wonderful events this past week that included a Victorian tea, a presentation by a famous artist and quiltmaker, and the Saturday morning drumming event at the ELYMCA with the SuperStars. I made my weekly stop at Wengard’s for fresh produce. I find this rewarding to know that just down the road, here in Pennsdale there is a place I can get free-range eggs, farm-raised fresh poultry, and fresh cold cuts. Just remember to take a number for the deli which moves very quickly. The family-owned business and staff members are quick, responsive and amazingly helpful. They even cut the pineapple fresh for me when I need some for picnics and family gatherings. This Friday Wengards Market will be having a customer appreciation day for their first anniversary at their current location. From 9 to 5 you can try free samples and taste their home made peanut butter.

Going back to the ELYMCA, some 30 minute outdoor classes, weather permitting, are in the works. Starting with Dance Fusion at 9 a.m., followed by Body Weight Basics, then Tag Your Workout, Ablicious, and ending the morning with Groove Yoga. Call them at 546-8822 for more information. You can probably step in anytime to any of these classes as most of them are tailored to various fitness levels, especially older adults who may have these time slots available in their schedules. My muscles are weak from a sedentary winter, so I am striving to do my workouts outdoors now, and this looks like a great opportunity. For those of you, who prefer indoors, 30 minute spinning classes are available during the weekday mornings.

This Friday night a retirement party will be held in honor of David Edkin, business manager of the Muncy School District for many years. The celebration will be held at the Log Cabin Inn in Muncy from 3-5 p.m.

I look forward to a pleasant May and spending time in the yard. A mole has done some damage over the winter and the lawn is hard to mow. We have made many attempts to rid of him, but he keeps coming back.
