Snow removal

I would like to thank Brian Reib and Pat Meagher for always making sure the sidewalks and driveways are clean on the upper part of North Main St. by the school and two blocks down going towards East State St. Since the children walk to and from school, Brian and Pat, make sure the sidewalks are clean and safe for the children so they don’t have to walk out in the street. Also please make sure if you have a fire hydrant on your property, that you shovel the snow out from around it. In case of emergency, it saves precious time if the firemen don’t have to remove snow to hook up their hoses.

Finding life again

The Finding Life Again support group will meet on Feb. 14, 12:30 p.m., at Coal Oil Johnny’s. This is a support group for widows and widowers. No matter the date of the passing of your spouse, join us for fellowship and lunch. Cost of lunch will be your responsibility.

“When we start deceiving ourselves into thinking not that we want something or need something, not that it is a pragmatic necessity for us to have it. but that it is a moral imperative that we have it.  Then is when we join the fashionable madmen, and then is when the thin whine of hysteria is heard in the land, and then is when we are in bad trouble.” — Joan Didion
