Muncy Locals July 31, 2019

By Staff | Jul 31, 2019

A new path is in existence for me, and I regret to write that this is my last Muncy local column for the Luminary. I have enjoyed this position as managing editor for the Luminary and adding to its history over the past ten years. I come from a newspaper background as my ancestors were part of the Sun-Gazette, back to a time when it was known as “The Sun and News.” With technology, times have changed but journalism never will. So I will continue with my writing, but more on a free-lance basis.

While I was on this journey during this decade, I discovered how much I appreciate living in this area and how much it has grown. Everything we need is here for us – a wonderful hospital, a senior center, a library, some nice restaurants, shopping, a great school and a lifestyle that allows us to participate in organizations of great interest to us.

Muncy 4th Fridays have provided a festive family atmosphere in a small town setting where everyone has a good time. People here are committed to make it better. Younger millennials care about where they live and follow their parents’ lead when it comes to raising families here. Muncy is a wonderful place to raise children. Activities, sports, parks and many recreational opportunities are provided in the Muncy community. I continue to find amazing people doing amazing things. I will be sharing some stories I have uncovered along the way in West Branch Life Magazine, and my husband and I are planning on doing some traveling.

I will continue my membership in the Muncy Garden Club, the Muncy Historical Society and the Susquehanna Valley Quilt Guild. I am looking forward to volunteering more with my favorite charities and having fun with my grandchildren.

Don’t forget to come to Pops on Pepper Street this Saturday and enjoy the wonderful Williamsport Symphony as they play outdoors behind the Poulton’s home.

I also heard that Joe Snedeker from WNEP Channel 16 came through downtown Muncy on Friday morning at 10:30. Perhaps some of you got a glimpse of him. He raised close to $300,000 for St. Joseph’s Center in Scranton.

The Muncy Historical Society now has a new poster for purchase. Several years ago they had one called the “Doors of Muncy.” This one is called the “Quilts of Muncy” and it is available in two sizes – 15×24 and 12×18.

Enjoy the summer and best regards to everyone!
