blog post or let it snow, let it snow, let it snow some more

T asty to do at the Pember Friday, February 11 – a chocolate lovers contest. All thing chocolate are going head to head to see who bring the mightiest ‘karate’ to the dessert arena.

If nothing else this sounds like a place to be when the dust clears because all of the entrants will be going up for sale – a great way to score something tasty and hand made just in time for Valentine’s Day. If you’re into fake holidays created by greeting card companies – if you can’t tell, I’m the Valentine’s Day version of Scrooge – So bah-love bug? Or something like that.

Remember the county solid waste plan will eventually be discussed at Granville High School in the auditorium. This meeting has been bounced from date to date and I’ve asked the folks over at the county to stop doing the snow dances while planning this one. A lot of people voiced their opinions about the transfer stations during the annual ‘budget season’ but this sounds like a chance to hear something about the county committee’s plan for a change. A valuable chance to pick up some information regardless of how you view the private vs. public refuse debate. FEB. 8 from 6 to 8 p.m. – get informed.
