McEWENSVILLE — Montgomery House Warrior Run Area Public Library and Holy Spirit Evangelical Lutheran Church are putting on two events in one location on July 28. A tractor ride is planned for the morning, on a route that covers about 23 miles. Ride starts at 204 Mill St., and ends at Holy Spirit, State Route 44, between McEwensville and Turbotville, for a pig roast dinner, beginning at 11 a.m. Library is holding their annual Cow Pie Bingo and Cowabunga Day events from 1 to 3 p.m. at Holy Spirit. Library features the Kiss the Cow “voting” machines. Attendees can purchase a square for Cow Pie Bingo. The Novel Quilters group from the library created several small quilts to be given to the highest bidders in a silent auction. Bidding ends at 3:30 p.m. Food available, as well as vendors and booths from other non-profit organizations. The tractor ride and Holy Spirit’s Fall Festival have been consolidated, with the pig roast proceeds going to support community outreach.
