Snow in P.G.?

The weather forecast for P.G. this weekend is rare and wonderful. According to the NOAA's National Weather Forecast Service, there is a 40% chance of snow on Saturday!

Whether rain or snow, it promises to be a good weekend to stay cozy and warm at home. But first - stop by the Library and pick up a good read, some DVDs, maybe a back issue of your favorite magazine... Or if you're feeling stir crazy at home, spend some time in our 103 year old reading room. The Library's furnace was fixed this week, so it will be cozy and warm.
Weekend Hours
Friday & Saturday
noon - 5 p.m.

A Bowling Alley at PG High?

Did you know the old High School, (currently the Middle School), once had a bowling alley?

It's been confirmed, by PGHS Alumni. There was a one-lane bowling alley in the gym.

Both Jayne Gasperson and Richard Stillwell remember it. You wore regular tennis shoes, had to set your own pins, and there weren't many bowling balls to choose from... but it was there.

We paged through 50 years of old High School Yearbooks, looking for a photograph, but were unable to find one. If you happen to have one in your scrapbook or photo album, please bring it by. We'd love to make a copy so we can share it with others! Or if you have any PGHS bowling stories, we'd love to hear those too.
