The Forkston Girl Scouts have been busy. After their very successful Community Ice Cream Social, they donated a check and a nice selection of children’s books to the Mehoopany Area Library. They also donated a check to Creek Junction Park and the board unanimously voted to donate it back to the Scouts. Lilly Henning helped pick and donate blackberries to the Seven Loaves Soup Kitchen and earned her ‘Make the World a Better Place’ medal. What a great group of young ladies.

Paulette Conrad is recuperating at home after back surgery. She’s feeling much better and let’s pray that she’s well on her way to a full recovery.

School has reopened so watch for the kids as they make their way to the school buses. The younger students have school every day while the older ones are split into two groups and each group goes two days a week in person.

The churches of the Mehoopany United Methodist Charge held their annual combined worship service at Creek Junction Park on Sunday. It was nice to see some other faces and very nice that it didn’t rain this year. It was a little chilly and windy but I think everyone was prepared for that.

The Mehoopany Creek Watershed Association will meet on Thursday, Sept. 17, at 7 p.m. in the Forkston Township building.

If you pre-ordered barbecued chicken from the Mehoopany Area Library, please remember to pick it up on Sunday, Sept. 20. It should be ready by noon and they will attempt to do curbside delivery. If you haven’t ordered any yet, please contact the library at 570-833-2818. There may be some tickets available.
