Well, the big news this week is the weekend snow storm we had…..our first for the season. Saturday started out perfect with temperatures in the 60’s. Saturday evening it started to spritz down some sprinkles, then it changed to snow. By Sunday morning, we had about 6 inches of heavy, wet snow. Sam and Gaige Burke even went out about 10 p.m. Saturday evening and made a snowman in the yard. Sunday was a raw day with cold wind and some flurries off and on. Kaeleigh and Kyleigh McDonald enjoyed tobogganing on the hill and Heather had fun with the four wheeler. So, it wasn’t a complete wash-out for those who like to be out in the cold. Don’t know what the week will be for us, but heard it’s not to be too bad; temperatures in the upper 40’s. That will be good for those traveling for the Thanksgiving holiday.
Has anyone seen or heard any geese going South? Someone mentioned quite a while ago they heard some. I haven’t heard or seen any so don’t know if they’re around yet because of the nicer weather we had. Now, I’m sure they’ll be heading to warmer climate.
Joe and Diane (Charnik) Fanning, along with Molly, Landenberg, spent a few days at their home on Church Street. Joe got to play horseshoes in Benton while he was here. Guess they also had some snow plowing and shoveling to do too.
For those of who who missed the play, “A Fractured Election” on Friday or Saturday evening at the New Albany Fire Co. Social Hall, you missed a great show. Those folks who put that on did an excellent job and kept the crowd laughing the whole time. Can’t wait for what they’ll come up with for next year.
St. Vladimir’s Church is having an Ethnic dinner on Sunday, the 27th, Russian Hall, Noon to 5 p.m. Eat in or Take out. BYOB. They also have pierogies for sale. To order, call 570-928-1099.
REMINDER: There will be a work bee at the Monument to decorate for Christmas. If you’re free on Saturday, the 25th, 11 a.m., come on up to the Pavilion and help. Many hands make light work.
There will be no Civic meeting for the month of December so everyone can enjoy the Holiday season.
Hint: “Looking for a “green” way to clean your faucets, sinks and stainless steel? Take a slice of cucumber and rub it on the surface you want to clean. Not only will it remove the tarnish and bring back the shine, but it won’t leave streaks and won’t harm your fingers while you clean.”
Good luck hunters as you go into the woods to “bag the big one” (either a deer or a bear).
Hope you all have a very nice Thanksgiving with loved ones during this special time. Also, give thanks to those who won’t be home for the Holiday as they are serving our Country to keep us safe and free. We thank them for their service.
Guess that’s all the news for this time. Enjoy your week as best you can. Have news call me at 570-928-9238; mail me; see me; or e-mail me at firstname.lastname@example.org. I’ll get it in for you. Thanks for reading and I’ll be here next time.
As you can see, the Lopez Cotton Trees are in full bloom. This crop of cotton produced about 6 inches. YUK!!!!
