Well, the heavens opened up on Sunday and Mother Nature provided us with some drenching rain. The Civic picnic was held on Sunday afternoon, despite the pounding rain, and all enjoyed the variety of food and visiting. Last I heard, it’s to be nicer for the week, with rain maybe coming in on Friday. The creeks sure rose and I’m bet the gardens were glad for some water. There was a nice rainbow early Sunday evening.
School starts on Thursday, so hope good luck to all during this new school year. Seems like summer just started and I know many are not ready to go back yet.
Bob McGuire, Jr. and son, Tyler, visited on Sunday with us and Tyler is spending his last little vacation here before he starts school on Monday, the 29th. They enjoyed the picnic on Sunday.
St. Vladimir’s Church has pierogies for sale. To order, call 570-928-1099.
Lola Mattie, and daughter, Georgia and Michael Martin, Forty Fort, visited her brother, Bob and JoAnn McGuire on Sunday and enjoyed the Civic picnic, even though it rained.
Don’t forget, Sullivan County Fair is coming up the end of the month, into Labor Day. I’m sure there will be something you’d be interested in. There are Fair books and brochures around the County, so pick one up and see what’s going to be taking place. There is always good food, good entertainment and lots of displays and animals to see.
Next Civic meeting will be on Tuesday, September 20th, 6 p.m. at the Pavilion. Membership dues for 2017 are being collected. See Molly Johnson to pay yours and to become a member. Costs one whole buck.
HINT: “Use full strength white vinegar to clean wood cutting boards and butcher block countertops. This is a great alternative to dishwasher detergent because that can weaken surfaces and wood fiber. it disinfects against E-coli, salmonella and staphylococcus.”
From Mr. Neubauer’s little brown book:
August 22, 1980 – mild and 56 degrees. Same day, 2016 we have sunshine, warm, little breeze and 60 degrees at 8 a.m. I’m sure it will warm up considerable as the day goes on. Guess that’s the news for this time. Enjoy your week; it’s to be a little less humid and more bearable, so get out and about.
Have news, call me at 570-928-9238; mail me; see me; or e-mail me at email@example.com. I’ll get it in for you. Thanks for reading and I’ll be here next time.
Here is another photo of the 1923 REO Speedwagon. A story has it that it went to the Allentown area????
