Turnpike Terrace Update
Submitted By Mary Heesh

Hello from Turnpike Terrace. We have been busy in the last couple of months up here. We had our soup and sandwich dinner, our Chinese auction and a St. Patrick’s Day party with music, prizes and very good food.

Most of our tenants are out of the hospital. We still have one in and hope she is home soon.

Some of us went to the Lanesboro Church and heard the Hobbs family. We enjoyed a meal and good fellowship.

Some of us work at the Angel Food distribution center at the Methodist Church in Susquehanna. What a great running program.

It’s raining hard today. You know, April showers bring May flowers. It works.

We still have our good meals here and we have bingo, phase ten and dominos.

We had our spring inspection; it went well.

Some of us went to see Soulfire at the Methodist Church in Susquehanna. Refreshments were served afterward.

Bob the bird got his wings clipped and he’s not happy about it. He pants and Marian Glover had her cats toenails filed down. So we have a panting bird and a panting cat up here.

Marsha, Marian G. and I all went to Montrose to a meeting about nutrition. It was very interesting and we had a great day for it. We learned about what we can expect from the new food service.

Marie Delaney won the Easter basket we had. There were a lot of really nice items in it. Congratulations Marie.

We have some flowers out. Spring has sprung in some spots. We also have a deer, a turkey, a possum and a skunk. We have our own zoo.

We hope everyone had a very nice Easter. See you next time.

4-H Club News Four Seasons

The Four Seasons 4-H Club recently held a field trip at the Gibson State Police Station. Trooper Bushta gave 4-Hers a tour of the station, explaining the use of different rooms in the building. He explained and demonstrated the use of equipment, tools, and other police gear. Members were also given the chance to view and sit in a police vehicle. Trooper Bushta informed 4-Hers of the requirements to become a State Police Officer and answered their questions. The 4-Hers learned many facts and tidbits of information regarding the police and the system which is in operation in Susquehanna County. Pictured: Trooper Bushta gives a demonstration of the equipment to the Four Seasons 4-H Club.

DES held their second meeting on Sunday, March 22 at the East Rush Church. We elected officers for the 2009 year. Our new officers are as follows: President Jenna Sprout, Vice President Morgan Williams-Clark, Secretary Callie Curley, Treasurer Allison Kiefer and News Reporter Austin Graham. Our leader, LouAnn Kiefer, talked about ethics and the importance of good sportsmanship and treating animals properly. Tim Finch, our livestock leader, talked to us about tagging our livestock animals and the ethics meeting that all livestock 4-Her’s have to attend.

We discussed our bake sale which was held Saturday, March 28 at the grand opening of Tractor Supply. We discussed having a fundraiser for spring and decided on a hoagie sale.

Our next meeting is scheduled for April 26 at 7 p.m. Enrollment forms will be due this day with the $10 fee. We will also get our hoagie papers at this meeting.

Also, we would like to thank everyone who supported our bake sale at Tractor Supply!

What Happens In A Year

Habitat for Humanity of Susquehanna County is proud of their latest project and all the volunteers that helped to bring it to life. Groundbreaking for the Kelly Street house in Montrose was August 22, 2008 and projects a finish line the end of summer this year. The volunteers opted not to stop working this past winter and are most grateful to the Vo-Tech students, along with their instructor Mr. Gary Fenton, for all their help. Many hands are needed and welcome to work as volunteers. You need only to be handy and eager.

At this time Habitat is conducting an open enrollment for a four bedroom home on Cherry St. Montrose and applications can be obtained by calling the office at (570) 278-4102 or email at
