Owl Creek news

The Owl Creek Community Park Commission held an outdoor meeting last Wednesday at the Owl Creek Reservoir. The group discussed recent activities, as well as upcoming plans.

The group will sponsor an adult dance next month at the Lakeside Ballroom, with music by "Remember When" and the annual Community Yard Sale will be held June 4 and 5.

As part of the ongoing efforts to improve the park area, the group will be planting rain gardens sometime in June, after the playground equipment has been installed. A total of eight gardens, varying in size will be planted with blueberry bushes, Coneflowers and Black Eyed Susans. Anyone interested in donating plants to the gardens may contact Georgine at (570) 668-5608.
