Another still on the recovery from my hospital sojourn so I'm still trying to get some local news to report.
Now would be a good time to move some of all this snow around so the melt will occur evenly rather than leaving some large puddles and slick melt off. Make sure to keep an eye on basements as this recent snowfall gave us more snow than usual at once.
Talking to the village office, they are excited to report that the skating rink has been plowed and cleared again. The shack to keep out of the elements beside the entrance has the hours of usage on it. So far people have been very happy with the rink. Over by the Civic Center is a great hill for sledders to take advantage of while we have all the snow on the ground.
The library is still in winter mode and has plenty of books and videos to enjoy warm and cozy in your homes while waiting for the warm weather to come back. Don't forget about the Wii and other fun books and computers available to children right in the library. Again, I have been a bibliophile my whole life and have visited many libraries, and I am very impressed with our local library.
Walking the bridges is great this time of year with all the gorgeous ice and a winter guided tour of AuSable Chasm would be a spectacular experience right now as well. There are a lot of wonderful elements to living in our community and now is a great chance to take advantage of them.
Keep checking for the Elks and the Catholic Women's Group and their free monthly dinners and a bring thank you to these organizations and volunteers for all the hard work and time put in to these events all for the good of others. Again, these are another wonderful indicator of the quality of our great community. Enjoy our community and all it has to offer and stay safe everyone.
