A chicken BBQ will be held on Sat., July 6th starting at 10am
in front of Bloss Holiday Market.  Prices: Half chicken--$6; Dinner--$7, includes: half chicken, salad, beans. This will benefit the First United Methodist Church in Blossburg.   Come and support a church that does so much in our community.  Also note the chickens will be cooked by the famous Sleezy organization.
There will be a Southern Tioga School District Board Meeting on Mon., July 8th from 6:30pm – 8:30pm at the Liberty High School Auditorium.  Blossburg residents worried about what the school district might have in store for our town's schools, should attend and voice their objections to any closing of our schools politely and clearly. 
Also on that same day and time, Blossburg Borough Council will be holding their monthly meeting at the borough office on Main Street.  We encourage the board to change their meeting times so they can represent our town and its citizens' concerns about our schools at every school board board meeting.  United we stand, divided we fall.
A reminder for members of the Hillside Rod & Gun Club. They will hold their general membership meeting on Wed., July 10th from 6pm – 9pm.  Meeting will be held at the Hillside Rod & Gun Club, located at 625 Gulick St., in Blossburg.  This meeting is open to members ONLY.  Doors open at 6 PM, meeting starts at 7 PM.
