Elizabethtown Column

It's hard to believe that January is just about over. If you're beginning to get cabin fever, here are a few things to get you out of the house.

Even though we had a few days of warmer weather and a little more snow on the ground, there's still plenty of snow in the woods on Blueberry Trails. The hikers, skiers, and snowshoers will be glad to hear, that Bronson Way has been opened and cleared, enabling drivers to get to the first pull off area allowing access to many of the trails. Take time to enjoy one of our town's many assets.

Friday, Jan. 25, is Town Supervisor Margaret (Maggie) Bartley's end of the month coffee hour, at 8 a.m., stop in for a chat, see what's new, or get your questions answered.

Saturday, Jan. 26, is Mexican Night at the Deers Head. If you're brave enough to wear a sombrero, you will be rewarded with a free drink. Their regular menu will also be available, call 873-6514 for reservations.

Remember, this is the last week to get trash stickers, before the price increase. The green stickers for small bags will increase from 75-cents to a $1.00, the orange stickers for the large bags will increase from $1.50 to $2. The older stickers can be used throughout February, if you stocked up.
