VIEW FROM MY FRONT PORCH

VIEW FROM MY FRONT PORCH
By MizMonica Thomas 

Like everyone else I ventured out over the weekend for some after holiday shopping sales and was floored when at Big Lots they were setting up their summer gardening display along with seed trays and chair cushions and cute garden art. Looking right at the guy and saying, "tell me it's just January 2nd right," he smiled and said, " Yeah, corporate forgets it will be two months before people start buying this stuff they just like to see us dust it." Whew I thought I'd slept through winter.....

At the middle & high school this next week two students Brian Gilroy and Sky Barney will be attending District Band in Saegertown, PA,  good luck kids! Thursday evening the 8th there is a T.R.A.C.K. Meeting MS/HS Library 6:00. Also that evening same time JO Wrestling in the Elementary Gym and in the MS/HS Gym JV and Varsity Wrestling versus Coudersport. On Friday night Jan.9 at 6:00 Girls JV & Varsity Basketball Games vs Otto Eldred at home. School Board meeting at 7:00 Monday night the 12th along with Boys Basketball vs Port Allegany at home. The end of the marking period is Tuesday the 13th and a Music Boosters meeting at 6:00pm. The Circus will be at the High School Gym and Track area Wednesday the 14th, show to begin at 6:00. Students under 12 free with tickets available around town and adults $15 at the door or available on line for $10 online at www.billymartincircus.com.

The Oswayo Valley Historical Society will meet Monday night January 12th at 7:00 in their meeting room in the basement of the Library.

Just a reminder for those folks living in the borough, water rates will be increasing $2.00. Making residential water rates $30.00 and commercial water rates $32.00 per unit. The last water rate increase was in 2007.

I want to thank Bonnie Hunt for her eight year term as mayor and wish here well in her retirement.

The Community Choir will be accepting new members when it reconvenes the end of the month on January 27th at 6:00 at the Senior Center. Contact Cheri Maxson at penmouse570@yahoo.com. They are planning a spring show in May rumored to be "Rock & Roll through the ages," and check out their up coming Mystery Dinner fundraiser elsewhere on this page.

So drop in and set a spell on the porch with me, Alba or our new cat Dasiey Mae or we can be reached at 814-697-7625, mizmonica@frontier.com or my facebook page to report information about what your organization is planning or news of the Oswayo Basin.
