Winter has finally settled in around us and I think it just might stick around. If you haven't been there, the sledding hill at the golf course is providing hours of fun for all of those big and little kids, brave enough to endure the frigid temperatures.
Not into braving the cold, but enjoy a little acting and singing, the Elizabethtown Social Center is preparing for their annual musical. This year, the production will be “Bells are Ringing”, written and composed by Jule Styne, Betty Comden and Adolf Green. This performance will be presented from April 18 through April 21, it will take you back to 1956, before all of the electronics that we now rely on. Susan Hughes is directing, Karin DeMuro will oversee choreography, and Kerry Mero will provide musical accompaniment. If you're interested, auditions will be held on Sunday, Jan. 13, from 1 to 5 p.m. and Monday, January 14, from 6:30 to 9 p.m. There are roles for all ages, beginning with students from sixth grade on up. Audition packets are available through the Social Center or ELCS Music room. For more details, contact Susan Hughes at 873-7319 or the Social Center at 873-6408.
Now that the snow is here, you never know how bad the roads will be, why not take advantage of one of the Plattsburgh bus trips. Each month the bus has two shopping trips, the next one is Wednesday, Jan. 16. If you want to be included, all you need to do is call 576-4444, ask for Ellen or Susan, have your name put on the list, set a time and place to be picked up, the cost is $10. It's a fun day, a great way to meet new people, while letting the driving to someone else, with no worries. If you would like to receive the schedule for the trips from now through March, you may contact me at the email address or phone number at the top of the column and I will send you a copy.
There is also a shopping bus that can take you to Saranac Lake/Lake Placid on the third Friday of each month, for a cost of $5. If you're interested in this bus, contact Essex County Transportation at 873-3689.
