To the editor: What a great weekend we had here in our great coal region area! The weather cooperated, and it started with the cruise on Independence Street in Shamokin.

The cruisers were greeted with my spectators. On Saturday evening about 300 people sang and danced to the ‘50s and ‘60s sound of Memory Lane at the Town Park in Mount Carmel. The band was outstanding and played for three hours. I have not seen so many smiling faces in one place since last March.
