Muncy and Hughesville Locals 3.4

By Staff | Mar 3, 2020

Muncy Locals

Subscriber Don Martin, who relocated to Farmville, VA in 1976, called The Luminary office last week in regards to the lead story in our Feb. 5 issue. That article recalled the horrific experience Judy Mendelsohn retold concerning her time spent at a concentration camp during World War II. Mr. Martin’s purpose in contacting us centered on the whereabouts of Mrs. Mendelsohn, who married Paul, owner of Paul’s Department Store on South Main Street. Don’s mother worked for the Mendelsohns. Have any of our readers kept in contact with Mrs. Mendelsohn or her daughter, Shirley? Please contact us at 570.584.2134, write at P.O. Box 266, Hughesville, PA 17737, or email cknier@muncyluminary.com.

It’s undoubtedly happened in the past and likely will occur again, but Muncy Borough police were dispatched to the west end of the borough last week to capture an escaped young bull. No word if they were successful, or if the bovine was returned to its owner.

If all-you-can-eat-breakfasts are something to enjoy, check out the advertisement on page 5. The fundraiser supports the Muncy FBLA students who are representing the school at the state conference level later this year.

Traditionally the first day of Spring is observed March 20, but this year, it’s return is March 19, when the equinox happens in all U.S. time zones. The last time Spring arrived this early was 124 years ago-in 1896. Personally, I’m prone to observe meteorolgical Spring on March 1. And while I’m on the subject of observances, don’t forget to set your clock one hour ahead this Sunday, as Daylight Saving Time springs forward.
