It is hard to believe Christmas and the 2014 holiday season are now behind us. Hopefully Santa was good to everyone. As I write this, realizing by the time this reaches you it will be New Year's Eve, I reflect on everything this year has brought. It sure has been a busy year but I'm ready to embrace 2015.
Salisbury Township School District schools remain closed and will reopen Jan. 5, 2015. Hope everyone is enjoying the break.
There will be an operations committee meeting 7 p.m. Jan. 5, 2015, in the administration building.
It's hard to believe the holiday season is in full swing and before we know it, it will be 2015. The holiday season is a busy one for everyone.
On Dec. 20, Santa will be escorted through the east side of the township by his helpers at the Eastern Salisbury Fire Department. They plan to begin their journey around 9 a.m. so keep your ears and eyes open.
Well, Thanksgiving has come and gone as well as what remains of "Black Friday." And that can only mean it is officially the holiday season. That brings about plenty of hustle and bustle not only at home and the stores, but also in our schools and township in general.
Boy Scout Troop #146 and Cub Scout Pack #146 gathered Nov. 9 for an annual flag retirement ceremony.
During the ceremony, Scouts distribute United States flags that have been meticulously separated into their base parts, the stripes and the stars. Once the flags are separated, they are no longer the U.S. flag; however, the parts of the flag are still awarded respect.
The ceremony explains the meaning behind each part of the flag and allows the flags to be retired.
The flags are disposed of appropriately under the supervision of the Boy Scout Troop.
It is hard to believe we have already had our first snowfall of the year. Although I'm sure most parents are thankful the snow days haven't begun yet!
However, it is the middle of November and that means the first marking period report cards will come home Nov. 19 from Harry S Truman Elementary School. Kindergarten conferences will be held Nov. 20 at HST and Western Salisbury Elementary schools. Following the distribution of report cards come parent teacher conferences and early dismissals for the kids.
It is hard to believe Halloween has come and gone, daylight saving has ended and we are facing arguably the busiest time of the year. There is plenty going on in the area as well.
Harry S Truman Elementary School is holding its annual book fair Nov. 3 to 7. There will be evening shopping hours for parents 6 to 8 p.m. Nov. 3 and 6 and the children have all made wish lists from their library visits.
It's hard to believe it is the middle of October already...let alone we are thinking of Halloween.
On Oct. 31, Harry S Truman Elementary School will hold the annual parade. Weather permitting, it will be outside 2 p.m. Morning kindergarten will parade 10:45 a.m.
Salisbury Township will hold trick-or-treat night 6 to 8 p.m. Oct. 31. Be aware of children who may be in the streets at these hours. Parents, try to keep children in groups and with some type of light or reflective clothing to increase their visibility.
