BONFIRE Tonight, August 30, there will be a Pep Rally and bonfire at the War Memorial Field in Lilly honoring the 2012 Penn Cambria Football team as they embark on their 2012 season. The public is invited to attend this 7:00 PM event and help cheer the team along. The refreshment stand at the field will be open during the bonfire which will be held near the new playing field in its parking lot. Lilly players on the team include Nate George, Jacob Hurley, James and Mark Mardula, Payton and Mac Behe, Nathan Keagy and Nathan Przybys. My expectations are a great winning season for this experienced and competitive team.
PROGRESS While you are up at the bonfire take time to stop at the Miners Monument and observe the progress being made. Stuvers Nursery spent several days planting shrubbery and trees last week.
GARDEN CLUB The Mainline Garden Club extends a sincere Thank You to those who supported their efforts during the town wide yard sale. The basket raffle winners were Vicki Durkay and Harry Myers.
YARD SALES The Lilly Decorating Committee is looking for individuals or an organization to continue the Town Wide yard sales held each August. Call Nadine at 886-4654 if you are interested in helping to organize and run the event in 2013. She is willing to explain the ins and outs of the program which she has led for 12 years and has become an exciting daylong event in town each summer.
