As I sit on my deck, flowers in full bloom, adoring the sunshine with my cup of coffee, I reminisce on these past 13 years.
On May 23, 2013, members of the Salisbury High School fall production, "Little Shop of Horrors" went to the 11th annual Freddy Awards. The night began with a performance by a select number of students from the participating schools. SHS performers included Connor Harrison, Taylor Heverly, Alan Mendez, Julisa Trinidad and Melissa Zong. Participating schools ranged from Central Catholic High School to Wilson Area High School. Categories ranged from outstanding choreography to outstanding overall production of a musical. A fun time was had by all.
Congratulations to the Class of 2013! They will celebrate their graduation 6 p.m. June 6.
A special compliment to all those graduating with honors and members of the National Honor Society. You should be very proud in your academic achievements throughout your four years of high school. Continue that tradition and you will persevere in college and your future endeavors.
A special compliment to 2013 Valedictorian and Salutatorian, Alan Mendez and Casey Creveling.

Today is the first day of spring! The best time of the year; the grass is green, flowers are blooming, birds are active and singing their songs. Days will get longer and warmer and being outside is enjoyable.
It is a great time of year to see the trees start to bud, people come out from inside their homes to go running, take a walk, ride a bike and play in the parks. Don't forget Rita's offers free Italian Ice today for the first day of spring.

The month of March is here, and as predicted by Punxsutawney Phil, it seems that spring weather of slightly warmer and rainy days are here among us in Salisbury Township.
Another indicator of spring, with longer days to come, is Daylight Saving Time. This year, Daylight Saving Time begins 2 a.m. March 10; the time to "spring ahead" by turning the clocks forward one hour is here! Warmer and longer days are on the horizon.
