Since I live on a rode preferred by runners, walkers, bicyclists I know that there are two types of people when the weather gets warm: the early morning, let's get some exercise in before the sun is up type and the let's wait until the sun is starting to set type. If you're the latter you might enjoy an upcoming activity in Schuylkill Haven. It's not exactly exercise but you will have to walk, after all it's right there in the name. On Thursday, June 15 you can enjoy the Walk, Wine and Wander from 4 p.m. to 8 p.m. If you're coming from out of town there's parking in the municipal lot, near the train station. Walk, Wine and Wander has a little bit of everything. Of course there will be local wines (and craft beer). But there will also be music, crafters and artists, trolley rides, character portraits, a hair and fashion show and more. What a great way to celebrate the cooling of the day!
The dog and I (no, that's not what I call my husband -- she's actually a canine)were wandering around this weekend and, since we're both a little deaf thought a thunderstorm was brewing -- actually it was the start of the Minersville Little League fireworks. Little League lovers can enjoy anther baseball activity on Thursday at the Mountaineers Hose company hall, South 3rd Street, Minersville. From 7 p.m. to 9 pm. several speakers will be telling the story of Little League in Minersville. Little League has a long history in Minersville, dating back generations and you can learn more at this free presentation.
If your idea of local history involves fewer baseball diamonds and more black diamonds then stop by the Schuylkill County Council of the Arts, 1440 Mahantongo Street, Pottsville this weekend for "Celebrate Us and the History of Coal". On Friday at 6 p.m there will be a viewing of a Molly Maguire movie at 6 p.m..
