Linglestown Gazette: Linglestown midweek update

Linglestown midweek update

History buffs talk swords Civil War sword expert Dane Maryott (pictured holding one of his swords) was the featured speaker for the Lower Paxton Historical Society gathering Wednesday evening at St. Thomas Roasters in the village square.

He said the swords were not used to inflict cutting injuries – in fact, they usually were very dull. The weapons were used to stab and to make striking blows.

Dane also owns a Web site that has historic photos of Linglestown.

Watch for announcements on Linglestown Gazette about future historical society meetings.

CD offers free concerts CD High School has three jazz bands, and they will perform a spring concert this Friday, May 16 at 7:30 pm in the school auditorium. Admission is free.

And, the school’s Spring Orchestra Concert will take place next Wednesday, May 21 at 7:30 pm. Admission is also free for this concert.

Please consider supporting the students with your attendance as they wind down their academic year.

Ut ohhhh!! It looks like the only swimming that will happen this summer at Koons Park Pool will be the ducks that were hanging out there Wednesday afternoon. The pool has not been drained and the grass needs to be cut in a big way.

Please leave a comment if you’re in the know about what’s happening with the pool.

Last week I emailed the gentlemen at the link from your story last month on Koons Pool - It's been over a week and still no reply.

I'm assuming the pool won't be opening this year as they are not even answering emails.

We drove by this evening and had seen the same thing - unattended pools and grass as high as your shins. The kids had sad faces - I think they now realize the pool won't be opening this year.

They were looking for volunteers just a month ago. Maybe this is why they are not preparing? No volunteers?
