The Centre Hall Library’s “Every Hero Has a Story” Summer Reading Program is in full swing. Each Thursday, they are hosting heroes – from Captain America to WWII veterans.

This Thursday (July 30), stop by any time between 2 – 4 p.m. to meet some boy and girl scouts. (I married a former boy scout, so I know what heroes they can be!) While you’re there, let the librarians know what you’ve been reading, enter the prize drawings, and browse the shelves for your next stack of books.

Be Careful at Centre Hall Elementary School Playground (Updated)

IMG_20150723_162051

(Update: The school district is on the case! They’ll keep us posted about the playground.)

In the meantime, I wanted to let you know to be careful if you are taking your children to the Centre Hall Elementary School playground. Our 10-year-old noticed that the balcony (above) is quite shaky and the boards are getting loose. We’d hate for a child to fall and get hurt!

While we’re at it, be careful on the following climbing apparatus, too. It’s shaky as well; a bunch of energetic kiddos could probably bring it down.

I’m grateful Penns Valley is on the case. Thanks for taking care of our kiddos!

Have you stopped into Weaver’s Store lately? The Valley’s “everything store” is infinitely classier than WalMart and probably has just what you’re looking for. Besides, they’re always offering sales on their high quality products.

Christmas in July at Penns Valley Jewelers and Cottage Rose Interiors

pvjewelers-sign-crop3-300x151When Penns Valley Jewelers and Cottage Rose Interiors has a sale, I like to show up. This charming shop in Millheim sells clocks, jewelry, hand-embroidered pillows, home decorations, stationery, and all kinds of little treasures. Through July, you’ll receive 50% off all jewelry.

In fact, if my memory serves me well, I think I walked into the store for the first time during a Christmas in July sale and fell in love. Over the years, I’ve purchased some of my favorite things there. You can count on 100% Charm.

 Enjoy your home,
