Harvest Moon Festival At Holy Name Of Mary

The public is invited to the Harvest Moon Festival in Montrose. This year the Columbus Day weekend event will be held on Saturday and Sunday, October 9 and 10, from noon until 9 p.m. on the grounds of the Holy Name of Mary Church. The festival schedule compliments the Artist tour held here annually. The Festival meals will help meet the needs of the many visitors attracted to our area on the Columbus Day weekend.

The Harvest Moon Festival honors our community’s agricultural and ethnic heritage with the presentation of a variety of foods including dishes from Italy, Poland, Germany, the Slavic countries, Greece and, of course, all American favorites. Visitors will satisfy an appetite piqued by the crisp autumn air by feasting on pierogies, stuffed grape leaves, pasta, and hot dogs/hamburgers, just to name a few of the many dishes to be served.

Live musical entertainers will include Joe Donovan, Kelly Pratt, Lonnie Griffith Band, the Endless Mountain trio featuring Corky Staats, as well as the country sound of the locally recognized String Band.

In addition to the food, music and hay rides, a petting zoo, Fire truck rides, raffle baskets, vendor wares, and Plinko are a few other highlights this year. There will also be over 40 baskets offering variety for ever interest. Several wonderful items will make the lucky winners happy on October 10. A queen sized quilt and a spring flower theme counted cross stitch will be offered, among other things.

Rev. Father Gerald Safko, pastor of Holy Name of Mary in Montrose, expects a great turnout. The committee has been working diligently for many months. Though they expect fine weather on this weekend, the festival will be held rain, snow, or shine!

SCFLOA Announces Foliage Bus Tour

The 2010 Susquehanna County Forest Landowners (SCFLOA) annual Columbus Day Weekend foliage bus tour heads west along historic U.S. route 6 to the Pennsylvania Grand Canyon and the Pennsylvania Lumber Museum in Potter County. This trip's itinerary will be of special interest to history buffs as the bus tour goes through the historic towns of Towanda, Troy and Wellsboro.

It is expected that the fall colors will be at their peak and those who delight in savoring and photographing the incredible beauty of the Pennsylvania hardwood forests will have a great opportunity. The 2010 President of the Association, Jim Kessler who knows a good many things about our forests, described the tour as “an excellent opportunity to enjoy the beauty of the forests of the northern tier and gain a historic perspective of northern tier lumbering. At the same time you can leave the driving to us.”

The tour will leave the parking lot behind the County Office Building in Montrose promptly at 8 a.m. on Saturday, October 9. The first stop will be the Pennsylvania Grand Canyon lookout with its spectacular panoramas of nature's beauty. The next stop will be the Coach Stop Inn for a buffet lunch. The third stop will be the Pennsylvania Lumber Museum in Potter County. Several hours will be spent touring the numerous buildings, re-living the days of the hardy 19th and 20th century woodsmen who cut, moved and transformed the magnificent Pennsylvania hardwoods into numerous essential products. On the return trip, the group will stop in historic and beautiful Wellsboro for dinner. There will also be time to explore charming central Wellsboro. The bus will be arriving back in Montrose by 8 p.m.

The bus tour is open to members of SCFLOA and nonmembers. Reservations for this trip must be made by September 24. For more information you can call Bob Wagner at 278-9363, Helga and Ralph Walz at 553-2993 or Jim Kessler at 879-4604.
