Muncy Locals June 19, 2019

By Staff | Jun 21, 2019

On Thursday, June 20 at 2 p.m. there will be a butterfly release at the First United Methodist Church in Muncy. This is the first one and it is going to be an annual event sponsored the by The Widows Mite Ministry. It will be held at the church’s memorial garden located on the lower level parking area. They are asking the community to join them and if you would like to release a butterfly in memory of someone, contact Anne Knox, coordinator at 570-974-1020. You will be able to pick up your butterfly at 1:45 p.m. under the portico.

You will be pleased, as I am, to know the airport now has parking for the new terminal. I was able to view the new educational display on the timber and wood product industry here in Lycoming County last month. Spearheaded by Keystone Wood Products Association, the display really shows our lumber heritage. There are six hardwood panels with signage along the side walls in the boarding area after you pass through airport security.

Representative Garth Everett wants to remind veterans that American Legion Service Officer Dan Falls is always available in his office in Pennsdale on the fourth Tuesday of every month. You can call 546-2084 to schedule an appointment in advance. He will be here on June 25th.

I got a booklet for the upcoming 149th annual Lycoming County Fair. Boy is it ever thick! July 10th will be here before we know it. I love the front cover which was created by a senior art student at Williamsport. Inside, the deadline reads July 1 to fill out your entry forms and get them to the fair office.

Also on that date Wolf Run Veterinarian in Pennsdale will have a grand opening at their new location.

Time to get cooking. On Saturday June 22 Penn College will be offering their cooking class “Epicurean Traveler: Rome” at the LeJeune Chef. To reserve your spot call 570-320-CHEF.

Lycoming County is part of the PA Wilds consisting of 11 official tourism regions whose mission is to promote outdoor recreation, boost nature tourism, and inspire stewardship to improve a better quality of life. This month awards are given to those counties and businesses who integrate conservation and economic development to make our area stronger and better. We need to promote our area for tourism, let everyone know we have lots to offer here from boating and fishing, to hiking, hunting and biking just to name a few. My husband and I spent last week camping at Bald Eagle Park and I spotted several out of state license plates – New York, Maryland, Massachusetts, California even. We asked why they would come all the way to Pennsylvania and basically we got the same reply. “We love the Pennsylvania state parks.” Our parks are free to vist, and offer some of the best recreational opportunities one would find anywhere in the country. For more insight visit www.pawildscenter.org. Overnight accommodations that include a nature inn, camping sites, yurts, and cabins are always available for a fee and so are senior discounts.

WalletHub, a data research company, compared 50 states on those that were the most fun. Pennsylvania ranked pretty good, namely for good restaurants, movie theaters, golf courses and country clubs, amusement parks, fitness centers, performing arts theaters, access to national parks and now casinos. Yeah, let’s all have some fun!
