Are we having some good weather or what? Can’t believe these temperatures. I really feel bad for those in TX, KS and CO and the bad weather, no power, and flooding they are getting again. We can be thankful for what we have. Weather was really good for those traveling over the Holiday. It’s to be nice all week, from what I heard on TV.
Friday was the perfect day for members of the Civic Association to put up the Christmas decorations at the Monument. Didn’t have to work with snow or sloppy weather. Those who came out to help included: Bob and JoAnn; Brian and Nina; Molly and Clair; Brandan and Robyne; Robyne’s brother, Steve Hetrick, who was visiting from VA; and Macrina. We got done in no time and had the lights turned on at 5 p.m. for all to enjoy. After decorating, Bob and I went into the lower park and while there we saw a bald eagle flying around above us. Stayed for a while; then went up toward the creek near Pigeon Creek Road. Beautiful bird.
St. Vladimir’s Church has pierogies for sale. To order, please call 570-928-1099. I hope all who were able to go to their Ethnic Foods dinner on Sunday had a good meal and enjoyable time.
Rifle deer season has started, so please be aware there will be a lot more action and hunters around. Good luck hunters and hope you “bag” the big one.
Tony Sneidar, Philadelphia, is spending a few days at his home on Church Street and doing some hunting while he is here.
Ted and Mary Lowden, Marlton, NJ, are enjoying a lot of time at their home on Maple Terrace. TJ Lowden, Marlton, NJ, spent the weekend at his home on Church Street and visited them also while he was here.
Tent City has some campers occupied for a few days. There are many of the Borick family relatives here to do some hunting and visiting friends. A lot of Ron and Kevin Franks friends are also here doing some hunting. Good luck, guys.
Bob McGuire, Jr. and son, Tyler, Hunlock Creek, and Bob and JoAnn McGuire, spent Saturday with Brian McGuire and Nina for a delicious Thanksgiving dinner. Had a great time playing Win, Lose or Draw. Looking forward to another game night soon.
I think everyone is glad that Cold Spring is running again. There will be some landscaping done in the Spring when the area gets dried up some. If you’d like to help maintain Cold Spring, you can do so by sending your donation to the Civic Association, P.O. Box 100, Lopez, PA and mark your envelope “Cold Spring”. Thanks and all donations greatly appreciated.
Jim and Barbara Craig, Media, PA, spent the Thanksgiving holiday at their home on Church Street.
Happy Birthday wishes to Elexus Dunkleberger, December 6th; Tony Sneidar, Jr., Marino Santarelli and Robyne McCobin, all on the 8th; Aaron Risser, 9th; Rose Decker, 10th; and Andrea (Matychak) Anderson, 12th. Hope you all have a nice day.
HINT: “Use Bounce dryer sheets in your books and photo albums that don’t get opened too often. Takes the odor out.” (And you thought Bounce was only for the dryer.)
