What a perfect weekend for all kinds of things that were going on. Nice day for picnics, quadding, gardening and yard sales and flea markets. Was also the perfect day for the many Memorial Day services that took place. Hope you were able to attend at least one of them to give thanks to the many who served our Country so we can be free. Speaker for our Memorial Day service was Darlene Fenton, USAF, and also our County Commissioner.
Gerry, Paula, Paul Weslowski and Paul’s friend, Chris, Allentown, spent the weekend with Nina Weslowski and Brian McGuire. All had a great time while they were here.
Scott, Susan and Adam Aharonian, Narvon, and Alex Aharonian, Philly, spent the spent the Memorial Day weekend at their home on Dutch Mountain. Was a nice day to get a lot of yard work done and even enjoy some fishing. We enjoyed dinner with them on Saturday evening.
Next Civic meeting will be on Wednesday, the 21st, 6 pm at the Pavilion. Looking for volunteers to help with Old Home Day coming up on Saturday, August 5th. If you’d like to donate a basket for the raffle that day, please contact Pat Arcaro at 570-928-8930.
Tent City was pretty well occupied over the long weekend. I think everyone enjoyed their time here.
Now, with the gardening weather is upon us, hopefully the gardens will be successful and produce well. To take good care of your fruits and veggies, put them in a bowl and add a couple teaspoons of baking soda. Fill the bowl with water to cover them. Let sit for at least 15 minutes. Dump the nasty water and rinse. Store in an air tight container. This will remove dirt and whatever else may be on them. I see many getting their flower beds and baskets ready too. We did have a few days of frost so let’s hope that all done with.
Now with the nicer weather, I think more folks will be coming to their summer homes and cabins. I did hear the weather is to be pretty good for most of the week. It is pretty dry, so we do need some rain to moisten things up a bit.
Bob McGuire had a close encounter with the bear late Saturday evening while burning papers. The bear walked down the driveway, went right next to him and the burning barrel and went over the hill.
