Linglestown Gazette: Backyard news, TGIF edition, 12.26.08

Backyard news, TGIF edition, 12.26.08

Once again there won’t be anything dropping from Linglestown’s locally famous flagpole or anywhere else in the village on New Year’s Eve. Let’s try to come up with an event to ring in 2010. What do you say?

The Merchants of Linglestown broached the idea earlier this month, and my guess is that they’d get involved if a few Gazette readers join forces with me, , to get things rolling.

Please e-mail B² if you like planning fun events. Also, e-mail if you have doable ideas on what to drop at the stroke of midnight.

And, if you attend a celebration next week, please e-mail anything that you see that would be worth considering for Linglestown’s First Night gathering. CLICK HERE for a listing of events compiled by The Patriot-News.

Sticking with the entertainment theme, I continue to be amazed and impressed with the musical talent showing up to do their thing for FREE, yes FREE, at St. Thomas Roasters coffee house in the historic village of Linglestown on Friday and Saturday nights, 8–10 pm.

Tonight’s featured artist, Lee Thomas, is a former Harrisburg resident who now calls Myrtle Beach home. “I’ll do a smattering of covers, old standards to modern day stuff, rock, pop, some originals, and some Christmas music,” said Thomas during a telephone interview. Her friend and writing partner Jim Renaud of Camp Hill will sit in for a few songs. Thomas, who plays acoustic and electric guitar, has a CD out and is working on a new one. Please consider joining me for java and tunes by Lee.

Moe Weimer and The Snoods are on tap Saturday evening.

This post is brought to you by St. Thomas Restaurant located near the flagpole in Linglestown. Time is running out for getting the "Gazette Special." Click on the photo to the right for more details and to see B² go on a mad dash through the village.

Hey, check this out Central Dauphin Rams boys’ basketball team made some noise this week by heading into the holiday break with a very respectable 4–1 conference record. Their win Monday night over Steel-High, the defending Mid-Penn and state champs, got my attention. They went on the clip Cumberland Valley on Tuesday.

Meanwhile, Central Dauphin Rams girls’ basketball team (7-0) kept their perfect record intact Tuesday by rolling over Cumberland Valley 60–36.
