Sterling Community News

Posted: Monday, October 22, 2007

Some of the most interesting conversations I have with folks around town start with the question "What type of new facilities or programs would you like to see here in Sterling?"

It is rare to find someone who doesn't have strong opinions on what Sterling needs. Now all of you have an opportunity to share those opinions.

The Borough Assembly is in the process of developing its 2008 capital project priorities list for the upcoming legislative session. The borough is sponsoring a series of community meetings to identify each community's capital project priorities.

The meeting in Sterling will be at 7 p.m. Oct. 30 at the Sterling Senior Center. The assembly has agreed to include in this list a maximum of two capital project requests from each unincorporated community in the borough. It is anticipated this meeting will last approximately one hour. If you are interested in having input in this process, plan to attend and let your voice be heard.

Now that summer is past I bet there are lots of local crafters getting out their supplies and making wonderful new items. This also seems to be the time of year when the planning for fall and winter craft shows start. If you have items you would like to sell, you might want to check out either of these two upcoming Sterling Craft Shows.

The Sterling Senior Center will host its Christmas bazaar and bake sale Nov. 9 and 10. They are looking for local crafters to reserve table space for the event. A table space costs $25 for both days. They ask that items be handcrafted. For more information, call the center at 262-6808.

The Sterling Elementary School PTA will hold its second annual craft fair at the school Dec. 1 and 2. This may be a great opportunity to sell your crafts and support the school at the same time. The cost for a space is $50 for two days. Space is limited and there are only 15 spaces remaining. Deadline for reserving a space is Nov. 20 or until spaces are reserved. For more information, call Krissy Mahan at the school at 262-4944. After 5 p.m. call Judy Miller at 262-8545.

The Sterling Elementary School is looking for individuals or groups who are interested in participating in the Halloween Trunk-or-Treat. They need people who are willing to bring their vehicle, decorate it and hand out candy to the kids on Halloween. This may be a great opportunity for local clubs and groups to do some community service work and have a fun evening at the same time. They also are looking for donations of candy.

For more information, call Krissy Mahan at the school at 262-4944.

As always, if you have news you would like to see printed in this section of the paper, contact me by phone or e-mail by Wednesday evening for inclusion in the following week's paper.
