Welcome to our new weekly newsletter

We’re excited to bring this new weekly newsletter highlighting this week’s Top Picks from the Editor.

The numbers have been rising in Pennsylvania, and concerns about COVID-19 have been at the forefront of conversation in many circles.

Among those are the churches. For the most part, church services are continuing with the mitigation efforts already established, but that’s not the case with the Episcopal churches. In-person services have been suspended for now.

Meanwhile, school officials have been closely monitoring the situation. They’ve spent much effort developing step-by-step details of what to do when a staff member or student gets sick with the coronavirus, yet that hasn’t settled the nerves of many parents, including those in East Lycoming School District.

Meanwhile, out in Sullivan County, a school board member apologized for comments opposing an LGBTQ display in the Sullivan County High School Library.

But there was much more to read about this past week in the Williamsport Sun-Gazette.

The Bald Eagle Art League, for instance, is planning a special figure drawing workshop on Dec. 3. What better time to take up a new hobby than during this pandemic?

And then there’s Thanksgiving next week. Did you see the recipes for Pumpkin Dip and Sticky Buns served up by The Recipe Gals in Wednesday’s “The Taste?” Check it out before you go shopping for your holiday dinner essentials — you’ll want to have all of the ingredients on hand before you turn on your oven!

Finally, we at the Williamsport Sun-Gazette want to wish all of our readers a safe, healthy and happy Thanksgiving! Remember your masks and social distancing, and please, no arguing over the last piece of pie!
