Muncy Business Closes
By Cindy Knier
July 15, 2010
While one business is closing its doors, another is ready to open. Fifty-percent off merchandise signs in the windows of the Klothes Kloset, Muncy’s consignment shop located in the former “Holiday Market” portion of the Masonic Building on South Main Street, is closing after nearly five years in business. And at the other end of Main Street, 34 North to be exact, the McCarty House Inn prepares to open as a bed and breakfast on Aug. 1, more details to follow.
Congratulations are in order to Muncy sophomore-turned-junior Hannah Cole, who made first team all-state as a centerfielder. As a freshman, she made second team, varsity softball coach Mark Temons reports. Hannah's season statistics were: .569 batting average; .656 on-base percentage; 21 runs scored; 33 hits; 10 doubles; 1 triple; 3 homeruns; 17 runs batted in and 15 stolen bases. Miss Cole routinely filled the position as centerfield, but played a game at shortstop and four games as catcher. With two more years to mature as a player, she could easily make and break some school records, eventually earning a spot in the Muncy High School Athletic Hall of Fame.
Rehearsals for “Annie” this year’s musical production, are ongoing by the Calvary Drama group, who continually brings musicals to sold-out crowds each summer. The play is scheduled for three performances on Thursday, Aug 5, Friday, Aug. 6 and Saturday Aug 7. Directed by Kevin Myers, the musical features Olivia Pierce as Orphan Annie, and Chris Dailey as Daddy Warbucks. Miss Pierce had the lead role as JoJo in last year's production of Seussical, while Dailey last appeared in Oliver! in 2007. In related news, former Muncian Sharon Ciraulo Majesky, an MHS alumni from 1979, is also involved with “Annie,” in Fleetwood, PA. Sharon is the assistant production manager, son Joseph is the lighting technician for the show and daughter Kathryn has the lead as the lovable orphan. If you’re in the Reading area July 15-18, and need an “Annie” fix, drop by Fleetwood High School (http://www.fleetwoodasd.k12.pa.us/fhs/). Tickets are $12.
Get well wishes to Larry Grieco, who is recovering from recent hip surgery.
