Lilly Lines by Jack Barlick 886-4694

There are many hunters plying the woods of Pennsylvania this week in search of an elusive buck. I look back on the days that I was included in their ranks. Now…No way in Hades would you get me out there in the freezing woods. I love the warmth of my home a lot more than the spine chilling winds and freezing snow and rain that greets you in the back woods, plus my health would not allow such an adventure if I wanted to. Setting out the season seems to be the best choice for me.

Approximately 150 citizens of all ages from the area got to enjoy a sleigh and horse ride on Saturday night from 5:30 until 8:30 PM, many others joined in the caroling at the ambulance building where Santa showed up to greet the crowd and turn the Christmas lighting on for the Season. Paul Sklodowski finished last minute preparations on the trees at the corner while Bev Mandichak and Anna Leahey made the corner beautiful in Christmas lighting.

Sympathy is extended to the family and friends of Lawrence Lucas who recently passed away. Larry was a Navy veteran and raised a family here in Lilly. A brother George resides here.

The Lilly-Washington Historical Society calendar is available at Galls Insurance Agency, the limited edition calendar includes a front cover of the Norfolk Southern locomotive and the Lilly Fire Company pumper both decked out in fire truck red honoring fire, police and ambulance services.
