Montgomery Locals 9/18/2019

By Staff | Sep 18, 2019

It’s hard to believe that September is more than half way through, Where does the time go? The leaves in Montgomery are starting to change, fall sports are well underway, and festivals and craft shows are about to begin.

Despite the old stereotypes that small towns are boring places with nothing to do, thankfully quite the opposite is true in Montgomery. There’s almost always something going on to appeal to most anyone no matter their age or interest.

If you are looking for something to do, have you considered volunteering or joining an organization? There are plenty of opportunities and many organizations around town that would be grateful for a few hours of your time if you can spare it.

THOT “Autumn is a second spring where every leaf is a flower.” Albert Camus

Happy belated birthday to Jason McQuay, who celebrated his big day on September 13. Loads of Happy Birthday wishes go to Avery Heasley, who will be turning nine on September 22.
