Muncy Locals Oct. 9, 2019

By Staff | Oct 9, 2019

It’s always satisfying to learn about Muncy alumni who, in one way or another, who remember the values taught at “Dear Old Muncy” and “pay it forward.” Two such alums are Vicki Thompson-Hess and Tammy Avery Weber.

Starting a grand new adventure, Vicki has been notably associated with the Lycoming County Library system since the early 1980s. Vicki’s new venue is Little Bears Daycare/preschool in Hughesville. Artistic in multiple areas, Vicki will continue to implement art, music, and books to young’uns at Little Bears. Congratulations and best wishes, Vicki!

Our newspaper this week features Tammy, who is featured on pg. 3 with a column which may interest the “Sandwich generation.” What might they be, you ask? Typically in their thirties or forties, the monniker refers to those responsible for bringing up their own children and for the care of their aging parents. Tammy, a 1979 graduate, is a Certified Elder Law Attorney, a title held by less than 60 attorneys in Pennsylvania. The Luminary is most pleased to be publishing her column.

Looking for a scary good time as Halloween approaches? The Pennsdale haunted barn returns the last three Saturdays-Oct. 12, 19 and 26 beginning at 7 p.m. and ending at 11 p.m. The event is located at 261 Village Road, and is a fundraiser for the Pennsdale Volunteer Fire Company.
