Food pantry lends a helping hand

Volunteers with Christ's Church at Lowhill Food Pantry have been lending a helping hand to families in need at the local level.

The food pantry, 4695 Lowhill Church Road, opened its doors in May 2009 and, since then, volunteers have been stocking shelves with donations to help area families.

In partnership with area churches, Second Harvest Food Bank, Allentown, and members of the community, the pantry is serving 80 families this summer.

Donations are always needed and volunteers are welcome to participate in stocking shelves.

So viel Duppe as mer uff de Fingerneggel hot, so viel Yaahr lebt mer noch. As many spots as are on your fingernails tells how many years are left to you.

Northwestern Press welcomes new Lowhill Twp columnist

To some of you my name may sound familiar, since I have written a few articles in recent weeks. I started freelancing for the Northwestern Press in May, and am thrilled to have the opportunity to write again.

I graduated from Bloomsburg University in 2003 with a Bachelor of Arts degree in mass communications with a concentration in print journalism. In lieu of pursuing a career in journalism, I returned to my restaurant job after graduation.

There I continued a career in restaurant management at the Pine Barn Inn, Danville.

Ebenezer UCC to honor fallen heroes

For some this Memorial Day weekend will mark the offical start of summer. For others, it means great sales and a day off from work.

But the true meaning of Memorial Day is to honor fallen soldiers.

Gen. John Logan, national commander of the Grand Army of the Republic, gave his General Order No. 11, and the first Memorial Day was observed May 30, 1868.

Flowers were placed on the graves of Union and Confederate soldiers at Arlington National Cemetery. Over the years, fallen U.S. soldiers from all wars are remembered on the last Monday in May.
