Turnpike Senior Center Update
By Mary Heesh

Hello everyone, from Turnpike Terrace.

We had our Chinese auction, lots of fun and a lot of treasures. We had a great time.

Marsha fell and hurt herself.

We have a very pleasant lady here named Betty K. She’s a great help to us.

Thank you to the Haley family for all the goodies they brought to the Terrace for us.

Bob the bird has been acting up again, but he is getting better at behaving and more friendly.

The seniors up here would like to thank the Susquehanna Fire Department for thinking of us with the chicken barbecue. We sure have a lot of good people in this town. Thanks again.

Our sympathy goes out to the Paccio family. Our hearts are with you all.

We had a nice group out for bingo. We had a group from town and the rest from up here.

Our friend and neighbor, Kitty M. is still in the hospital. She had surgery and is now doing therapy. Her daughter keeps us informed. Get well soon, Kitty.

We had the Watson Hill Choir here for a sing-along. We have a great time when they are here. We wish we could have a larger group, but the ones that came really enjoyed themselves. Refreshments were served afterward. Thank you to all who helped and all that came, and especially to Watson Hill.

I hope everyone had a happy Easter. I went to Robin and Frank’s with the rest of the family. We had a great time. Even though Easter was early we had a dry, sunny day, but cool.

See you all soon. Take care.

Lawmakers Announce County Planning Grant

Susquehanna County is striving to update its county solid waste management plan and grant funding from the Department of Environmental Protection (DEP) will help, announced Reps. Sandra Major (R-Susquehanna/Wayne/Wyoming) and Tina Pickett (R-Bradford/Sullivan/Susquehanna).

The county is set to receive a $14,721 County Planning Grant from DEP, which will be used to reimburse up to 80 percent of the costs to revise its solid waste management plan.

The County Planning Grant Program is made possible through Act 101 of 1988, the Municipal Waste Planning and Waste Reduction Act. This act mandates recycling in Pennsylvania's larger municipalities and requires counties to develop municipal waste management plans. Its goals are to reduce Pennsylvania's municipal waste generation; recycle at least 25 percent of waste generated; and educate the public as to the benefits of recycling and waste reduction.
