Owl Creek news

The Owl Creek Reservoir Commission met Monday evening. Topics of discussion ranged from fall foliage hay rides to a visit with Santa.

Due to last weekend's wintry weather, which forced the cancellation of two days events, an extra day has been added this weekend. This weekend's events will run Friday, Saturday and Sunday. To prepare, the commission will meet at 5 p.m. this Thursday and 3 p.m. on Friday.

Also discussed was participation in the Tamaqua Halloween Parade on Oct. 27. The group plans to enter a float in the parade.

Santa will visit Owl Creek on Dec. 12 and 13.

New members are always welcome. To volunteer, or for more information, call (570) 668-5066 or 449-3205.
