Elementary-age students took part in the event this week.
There was a lot of horsin’ around at the Frank Sarris Public Library—but it was all in good fun as part of the 2013 Reading Round-Up! Students in kindergarten through fourth grade attending a Canon-McMillan elementary school were invited to the two-night event. The theme for the second annual literacy festival included country western themed stories, games, crafts, music, and prizes. Cowboys and cowgirls of all ages showed up for the event—even Canon-McMillan high school students from the National Honor Society and student council volunteered their time throughout the evening. Just fewer than 200 elementary school students attended, along with their parents, guardians and siblings. A sampling of activities included reading in a horse stall…

The sign says 'fresh cut trees" but not much else is known. In other words: Info wanted!
Dear Canon-McMillan Friends, The signs say “fresh cut trees” and the lot is right behind the Frank Sarris Public Library in Canonsburg. There are trees of various shapes and sizes, some shorter and stouter—some taller and more slim. The lot was also adorned with decorative wreaths for those front doors that mght look a little less festive without them. Two women walked past Monday afternoon and asked me, “Do you know who runs this lot?” And sadly, I did not. “I just saw the signs and figured I would stop by for more information,” I told them. There wasn’t an attendant available. There were no signs for when the lot was open or closed, and there were no price tags of any of the wares. Even some borough officials were unaware of who the lot …
