BRRRRR!! As I sit here very early Monday morning, typing my news, it is a “balmy” 7 degrees. That’s right SEVEN degrees. The weather report says temperatures in the 40’s for the week. Sure hope so. It has been very cold and windy most of the week No snow to speak of and temperatures didn’t make it much past 25 degrees during the day. I guess Mother Nature is trying to tell us it’s “that time of year” and we have to deal with it. I saw fifteen turkeys in the field across the street the other day. Haven’t seen any for quite some time so was a nice surprise.
HAPPY THANKSGIVING!! Hope you all have/had a nice day with family and friends. Please take a minute to give thanks to those departed who cannot be with us this year. Pray for those who are away and fighting for the freedom that we have to celebrate this special day.
After their recent, exciting, trip to Florida to visit family and friends, Jerry and Barbara welcomed a new family member to their home on Lilac Lane — a cat named Calliope. She is getting along fine with Dixie dog in her new forever home.
I guess deer season is coming in right after Thanksgiving. Good luck hunters. Maybe some other up-coming events you may be interested in. Check the Sully and Face Book for these happenings.
There will be no more Civic meetings until the month of March. Enjoy the Holidays. Membership dues are now due. See Heather McDonald to renew or to join.
The Civic thanks the Macort family from Lansdale for their very generous donation for Cold Spring. They go there often and said the water is great! If you’d like to donate, you can do so by sending it to Lopez Civic Association, P.O. Box 224, Lopez, PA 18628. Thank you in advance.
Here’s a “recipe” I found for Magic Oven Cleaner: Mix 2 oz. of Dawn dish detergent, 4 oz. bottled lemon juice, 8 oz. white vinegar and 10 oz. of water and put in a spray bottle. Spray on the oven surface and leave overnight. Wipe clean with wet cloths to remove residue. DO NOT use heat in the oven. The secret is to let it sit, then wipe with clean towels.
St. Vladimir’s Church has pierogies for sale the first and third Sunday of the month. Call 570-928-8909 to order and can be picked up at the Church Hall from Noon to 1 p.m. Get them now; they won’t be made again until Spring.
Happy Birthday to Jaeden Patson; 20th; Serenity Laird and Reese Baton, 23rd; and Cassidy Brown, 30th. December birthdays include Kevin Partington, 4th; Elexus Dunkleberger, 6th; Robyn McCobin, 8th. Hope you all have a nice day.
Hardly seems possible that November is almost gone. Time flies by so quickly. Christmas decorations are going up. They are starting to look very festive.
The Civic Association will be decorating for Christmas at the Monument and Pavilion on Sunday, the 27th at 10:30 a.m. If you’d like to help, feel free to do so. The more hands, the faster the job is done.
That’s the news for now. Enjoy your week, whatever your plans. Have news, call me at 570-928-9238; mail me; see me; or e-mail me at firstname.lastname@example.org. I will put it in. Stay safe; stay warm and I’ll be here next time. Thanks for reading.
