Remington Ryde, a Harrisburg-based bluegrass band that performs throughout the United States and Canada, will play at the 16th annual Laurel Highlands Bluegrass Music Festival in Waterford, Ligonier Township.

The sound of music will echo through the Ligonier Country Market this Saturday, as visitors check out some of what they might hear at next weekend's Laurel Highlands Bluegrass Festival.

The June 9 market will feature a sampling of some of the musicians who will be performing at the 16th Annual Laurel Highlands Bluegrass Festival on June 15-16, in nearby Waterford.

Also on Saturday, representatives from the Winnie Palmer Nature Reserve at Saint Vincent College will have a tent on the market grounds.

The reserve fosters environmental stewardship through conservation, education, and recreation. On Saturday, learn about summer opportunities and meet some interesting creatures that call the reserve home.

The Bluebird Society of Pennsylvania will be on hand this week to educate and provide free literature about how to plant habitat to attract bluebirds. New members who join will have the opportunity to purchase a nest box kit at a discount.

The Bluebird Society currently has nest boxes at the Loyalhanna Watershed Farm Bluebird Trail and in the country market area and monitor them weekly.

In addition to shopping for fresh fruits and vegetables, baked goods and craft vendor items, the younger set can join market mascot Daisy Mae for a fun kid's activity.

While most comments will be posted if they are on-topic and not abusive, moderating decisions are subjective. We will make them as carefully and consistently as we can. Because of the volume of reader comments, we cannot review individual moderation decisions with readers.

We value thoughtful comments representing a range of views that make their point quickly and politely. We make an effort to protect discussions from repeated comments either by the same reader or different readers

We follow the same standards for taste as the daily newspaper. A few things we won't tolerate: personal attacks, obscenity, vulgarity, profanity (including expletives and letters followed by dashes), commercial promotion, impersonations, incoherence, proselytizing and SHOUTING. Don't include URLs to Web sites.

We do not edit comments. They are either approved or deleted. We reserve the right to edit a comment that is quoted or excerpted in an article. In this case, we may fix spelling and punctuation.
