Sugar Grove Sale Days
The intermittent rain showers did not hamper the bargain hunters at Sugar Grove Sale Days last Saturday. Most people said they enjoyed the much-needed rain. Even with the weather there were over 100 sales within a five-mile radius of Sugar Grove. In addition to sales throughout the community, sports and school groups were out in force with food sales to help raise funds for their booster organizations for the coming school year.
On Friday evening, the Willow Creek Band performed from 6 to 10 p.m. in the Sugar Grove Community Park on Main Street. This was a free public concert is the kickoff to the Annual Sale Day festivities and was sponsored by Sugar Grove Borough Council.
Next year's Sugar Grove Sale Days will be on Saturday, July 27, 2013.

Vote for your Favorites
Check out the Warren Times Observer's Reader's Choice event which is going on now. If you search the categories you will find numerous places to vote for local Sugar Grove area businesses. There is even a category to vote for your favorite Sugar Grove business.
Places nominated by the general public in Sugar Grove area were The Bucket, Chase Car Care, the new Darling's Pharmacy, Gaylon Critz Excavation, Kwik Fill, March Chiropractic, McNutters, Town & Country and Northwest Savings Bank. If you are unsure where the new Northwest Savings Bank is located, it's because we only have one bank in the community and it is a PNC bank. In any event, we appreciate the great service in the community we receive from our local PNC bank staff.
