Amazing, we are finally having some Spring weather! The Elizabethtown Thrift Shop would like you to know that Spring has arrived at the shop too. The room angels have made the change over to their Spring and Summer clothing. Last Saturday, they had a successful collection day with many great outfits donated, housewares and artwork. Stop in, see the changes, this month they will have a nice display of Red Hat items and Easter goodies. The teen room will especially have some excellent trendy outfits for sale. Look for the raffle of a beautiful scenic oil painting. If you have any questions or would like to become a volunteer, call 873-6518 or visit their website at www.etownthrift.org. New volunteers are always needed and welcomed.

As the season is changing, many of us live in older homes, decide to spiff things up while we work on the daunting task of Spring cleaning. Keep in mind that many of our older homes may have toxic lead paint in them. If you think that could be possible in your home, especially if you have small children who put everything in their mouths, take time and call the Essex County Public Health for a screening. You may contact them at 873-3500, visit their website at co.essex.ny.us/publichealth or follow them on Facebook at Essex County Public Health.
