The League of Women of Susquehanna County invites the public to join in celebrating Women’s History month. A Toast to Emily Blackman, will be made with wine, cheese, refreshments and a hearty dose of local history. The gathering will be held on March 7, 7:00 to 9:00 p.m. at the Holy Name of Mary Fr. Nash Center in Montrose.
Historian and author Debra Adleman, who is a Blackman scholar, will present highlights of the life and work of the extraordinary woman who traveled the rugged dirt roads of this county with her horse and buggy to chronicle its pioneers and their stories. In 1873, Blackman published what is still today the best history of Susquehanna County and a reliable, readable reference for anyone who wishes to understand the roots of this community. In addition to her work in preserving our history, Miss Blackman was also a great teacher, philanthropist, musician, and could read the New Testament in ten different languages. Debra Adleman will fill in some details about Blackman’s less well known activities, in particular her efforts in Mississippi after the Civil War teaching freed slaves how to read.
The Blackman family residence on Church Street in Montrose is in the process of being restored. Barbara Klim will be on hand to update the group on that effort.
Sister Mary Eleanor of the Sisters of Mercy will present the subject of Lectio Divina (Sacred Reading) on Saturday, March 3, from 10:00 a.m. until noon in the Grace Room at Holy Name of Mary Church, Montrose. She was one of a group of clergy that received instruction on the topic from her bishop at the time and has been using Lectio Divina for nearly 50 years. For the last 10 years, as a member of the Scranton Diocese Cursillo Team, she has been giving talks on the spiritual life.
Lectio Divina is a Latin term for a way of reading holy scripture and goes back to the early church fathers and mothers. This presentation is sponsored by a local Montrose group that does Centering Prayer on Thursday afternoons.
Centering Prayer and Lectio Divina are two prayer methods linked by a desire to get closer to God by contemplative prayer. All persons desiring a closer contact with their God are welcome.
Mark your calendar for April 25, 7:00 p.m. to 9:00 p.m. when the League of Women Voters of Susquehanna County will host a forum for landowners, including those with small properties, on working with nature and government to avoid flood damage.

The event will be held at the County Office Building downstairs conference room (31 Public Ave.) Montrose.
