Egg hunt to take place in Troy

The Allen F. Pierce Free Library will hold its annual egg hunt in the library on Saturday, March 30 in Troy.

This year, the Troy Rotary Club won't be holding its Easter Egg Hunt, and is instead supporting the library with its egg hunt. Eggs filled with candy will be hidden in the library.

Registration begins at 11 a.m. Pre-registration is also available. For more information, call (570) 297-2745.

The hunt begins at noon, starting with the youngest age group first.

The hunt will be broken down into the following age groups: children up to 2 years old; children 3 to 5 years old; and children 6 to 9 years old. Children older than 9 years old are welcome to help with the games at the event.

Parents can help small children hunt for eggs.


Two vie for Troy Twp. supervisor seat

There is competition in a Troy Township race in this year's spring primary.

Two people are seeking a 6-year township supervisor seat in Troy Township, according to the Bradford County Election Bureau.

Randy Calkins (R) and Garth Nash (D) are running for the seat in the spring primary, which is scheduled for May 21.

According to county election director Renee Smithkors, the seat is open because supervisor chairman Terry Lutz is not seeking re-election.

National School Breakfast Week celebrated

The Troy Area School District recently celebrated National School Breakfast Week, according to the district's newsletter.

As part of the celebration, the high school varsity boys and girls basketball teams ate breakfast with the W.R. Croman Primary School students. The theme for this year's event was "Be a Star."

"Our students got to eat with local stars," the newsletter notes. "The PTSO (Parent Teacher Student Organization) provided 'free' breakfast to all students at W.R. Croman."

The newsletter notes that eating breakfast at home or school is the "single most important meal of the day" and has several benefits, such as improving standardized test scores, especially in math.

The district noted, "We would like to extend a personal thank-you to the Troy Area School District staff, parents, and students for their efforts in making the 2013 National Breakfast Week a huge success."
