Get the jump on trout fishing tomorrow by enjoying a fishermen's breakfast at the Beech Creek-Blanchard Fire Company social hall from 5:30 - 9 a.m. The breakfast will cost just $6 and attending is a great way to support your local fire department.
A chicken BBQ will be offered at the Howard VFW Club tomorrow, too. The chicken halves should be ready by 11 a.m. and are $5 each. You can opt for a meal which includes baked beans, macaroni salad and cole slaw for $7.
The Fairview Cemetery Association is planning their spring clean-up on May 5. Lot owners are asked to remove your cemetery decorations before May 1. The cemetery association is asking for volunteers to help with the cleanup, too. Many hands make quick work so bring your gloves, rakes, pruning tools and wheelbarrows if you can help. Cleanup usually starts about 9 a.m.
BAKE SALE & BBQ
The Marion Grange in Jacksonville will be holding a bake sale and chicken BBQ on April 21. The grange members will have a variety of baked goods including pies, cookies, fudge and other goodies for sale to complement the chicken BBQ.
The chicken should be ready by 11:30 and is on a first come - first serve basis. There's only 160 halves so if you'd like to pre-order your chicken beforehand call Joyce at 625-2278. A half chicken and roll will be $5 or you can opt for the entire lunch meal which includes macaroni salad or toss salad, baked beans, a roll and cookies for $8.
Tomorrow is the opening day of trout fishing season and I'm sure there are lots of excited anglers out there who will be headed to the local creeks and streams to cast a line or two.
Remember to do your part in keeping our favorite fishing spots litter-free and clean. No empty bait containers, beer bottles or soda cans should be left behind.
The Bellefonte Art Museum is featuring an exhibit with works by Jennifer Tucker and Gerald Long entitled "An Intimate Perspective." Also showing will be butterflies and botanical drawings and watercolors by Holly Fritchman and collected specimens by Jordan Finkelstein. The botanical series is a mixture of both science and art that captures plant images created with digital light sensitive recording devices and flatbed scanner.
These displays will run through the end of May. The museum is open Friday, Saturday and Sunday from 1-4:30 p.m. or otherwise by appointment. For more information call (814) 355-4280 or visit www.bellefontemuseum.org.
Because of the dry conditions no one should be doing any open burning of any kind. Local fire department volunteers have been busy the last few weeks fighting forest fires and other fires that have spread because of the wind and dry conditions. Pay attention to Smokey the Bear's advice and Prevent Forest Fires!
