Harshes celebrate 65th anniversary

August 06, 2013|Paula Green Shupp | Around Williamsport

Happy anniversary to Buck and Betty Harsh, who are celebrating 65 years of marriage Wednesday. They have lived in Williamsport for all those 65 years.

More than a yarn shop

Williamsport Yarn Closet owners Melissa and Brian Noel are busy this week preparing for their grand opening Saturday from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m.

The shop is at 45 N. Conococheague St. in Williamsport. 

Melissa Noel said she has been knitting for years and this store is the result.

The store’s main product is hand-painted yarn. Melissa Noel said the shop is one of the few retailers in the United States that is importing yarn from New Zealand’s The Rare Yarns Co. However, she added that she hopes to make the business more than a yarn shop. She said she will be holding classes and same-product “knit-alongs.” She also said she will schedule crochet and knitting classes for those ages 7 and older.

Brian Noel said he spends most of his time at their other business, Noel’s Fire Protection, also in Williamsport, but Monday he was busy unpacking yarn.

At the grand opening, the Noels plan to have schedules for their upcoming events and classes. There will also be door prizes and refreshments.

Hours of operation are Thursday and Friday from 10 a.m. to 7 p.m. and Saturday from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m.

For more information, call 240-625-2944.

The  calendar for August is full, as well.

On Tuesday, club members were to make funnel cakes at Byron Memorial Park for National Night Out.
