I hope everyone had a very Merry Christmas, now we look forward to the New Year 2014.
It’s the time of year that we think about change, New Years resolutions, health and the future. I would hope that everyone would consider getting involved in our community and work towards a positive future for E-town. There are many organizations that are always looking for new members.
Volunteers are always needed at Elizabethtown Thrift Shop, even if it’s as little of two hours a month. The shop provides many necessities for our community. Stop in at the shop, upstairs at the Deer’s Head Inn or contact them at 873-6518, email at firstname.lastname@example.org or visit their website at www.etownthrift.org.
It’s not necessary to own a business to join the Elizabethtown-Lewis Chamber of Commerce, just an interest in promoting our local economy through business and tourism. Meetings are held the first Tuesday of each month at 5 p.m. in the ACAP offices. Contact them at their website www.elizabethtownchamber.com or join them at a meeting.
The Elizabethtown-Westport Garden Club is not just about gardening. They organize trips, learn crafting and design techniques, often invite guest speakers to their first Thursday of the month meetings, and host an annual fashion show/luncheon. Their annual December Green’s Tea is a fundraiser benefiting the hospital, ambulance services, hospice, and other medical services in our area. They also donate to the community food pantries, the SPCA, BRASS and provide civic beautification. For more details or to attend a meeting as a guest call 873-9279 or talk with any member.

Elizabethtown Fish and Game club, one of the largest organizations in our area, hosts an enjoyable pot luck dinner at their 6 p.m., first Thursday of the month dinner meetings, while providing education in hunting and fishing for all ages.

I wish everyone a very safe, peaceful, Happy New Year!
