Life Line Screening At. St. John’s Church

Life Line Screening will be at St. John the Evangelist Church, 101 Jackson Avenue, Susquehanna, on November 29, performing ultrasound screenings for stroke, abdominal aneurysms, and blockages in the arteries of the legs, as well as osteoporosis screenings. This preventative program is really worth participating in. Problems can be detected early and taken care of, before they become more serious. Your results are sent to you and you are referred to your own doctor.

Each non-invasive, completely painless screening takes about ten minutes. Discount packages are available.

You must pre-register by calling 1-800-407-4557 for your appointment or for more information.

Fourth Annual Open Christmas Barn

Personal Ponies, Ltd. (PPL) is having their fourth annual Open Christmas Barn, at Elisha’s Home, December 2, from 1:00 to 4:00 p.m. (snow date is December 9). The barn is located in Fairdale, three miles outside of Montrose, PA. There is no charge for the tour, and the barn is handicap accessible.

PPL is a one of a kind organization that raises their own UK miniature Shetland ponies and gives them to differently abled children to hug and brush. These ponies are called gift ponies; there is no charge. The children use the ponies for physical as well as mental therapy.

Pictured is Rocky, mascot pony for PPL, owned by Elaine and Emil Nemeckay, Regional Directors.

"We also call this our petting barn and invite everyone to visit; it will be decorated with the holiday spirit. We have miniature Shetland ponies, donkeys, llamas, pygmy goats and a potbelly pig, named Brucie. Rocky, the trick pony will be there to perform, at two intervals in the afternoon. Personal Ponies is all about making children smile," say Elaine and Emil Nemeckay, Regional Directors, from Hop Bottom, PA.

PPL has grown to be nationwide and has been placing their ponies in the homes of disabled children for over 16 years.

Plan to come and spend the day with volunteers at the barn, who will be available to answer any questions. Call (570) 278-5078 for more info.

Christmas Dept. Store At Montrose UMC

The fifth annual Christmas Department Store will be held at the Montrose United Methodist Church, 90 Church Street, on December 1, from 8:30 a.m. to 3:30 p.m. This unique event has been a huge success each year, and members of the church expect that this year will be no exception. One of the reasons for such success is the low-priced attic treasure gifts; new and like-new toys, jewelry, Christmas decorations, toiletries, sporting goods, books, games, puzzles, household items and objects too many to mention. Then there are the more realistically priced crafts, gift baskets, baked goods, jams, jellies and other foods, plants, wreaths, and dried flowers and other botanicals. There is something for everyone, and gift wrapping is free.

The doors will open at the Christmas Department Store on December 1!

Coffee and donuts will be available in the morning. Lunch will be served from 11:00 a.m. until 2:00 p.m.

All are cordially invited to come join the fun and do some early shopping.
