By Lois Lumbra — It finally arrived today, the much needed rain for us up here near the Canadian border. Most gardens were in much need of rain. I have watered the flower barrels daily since they were planted the latter part of May. Today, John Youland announced at Church during our “Joys and Concerns” that his son Johnny, won the award for best “Sophomore Enginering Student” of the year, at the Tech Center at B.F.A. in St. Albans. We, the Montgomery United Methodist Church Family are very proud and so very happy for you. God Bless!!
