Hope you're enjoying your Labor Day. And if you're on of those folks who works on Labor Day...thanks for keeping our community chugging along when most of us are enjoying our last summer vacation day (even though we already have two high school football weeks under our belt). Enjoy the upcoming warm days because autumn is upon us.
Are you a reader? I'm enjoying the weather for just that reason -- it's light enough after work to sit outside and read but not HOT HOT. Perfect reading weather! No matter where and when you read you may want to head to Orwigsburg to load up on a few books to see you through the autumn. The Orwigsburg Library is having their Book Bundle Bonanza on Saturday, September 7 from 9 am to 4 pm. A bag of books is just $5, pre-bundled book bundles are as low as $1, DVDs & CDs are $1 and audio books (great for when you're exercising) are $2. This sale benefits the children's reading programs. While you're there, you might want to save $5 for their latest raffle: the PA Proud basket. Every prize in the basket -- $800 worth -- is related to Pennsylvania. There's a combo of passes for places to go in PA and things made in PA. The winner will be chosen on October 14 so get your ticket(s) while you're doing your book shopping.
If you're a reader you may also be a writer. Have fun trying your luck a writing a pumpkin limerick (G rated please) for the annual Frackville Pumpkin Festival. Limericks are a bit tricky. You can hint some advice here. Remember, no matter what tips on limericks tell you -- totally G Rated! The deadline to submit limericks is 5 pm on September 26 and the three winners will be announced on October 5 at the festival (they also win prizes). Include your contact info (name, phone, email) on the back of your limerick and mail it to:
