Presidents Day

I noticed that quite a few people put out garbage for trash collection and recycling for recycling pickup. It is Presidents Day and not only are federal offices and most financial institutions closed, but the city offices are also closed. And that includes garbage pick up and rcycling.

The holiday did not stop work on the bridge railing. A crew was drilling holes in the sidewalk to install the last of the railing.

At the Community Conversation earlier this year, there was a discussion about a need for a community calendar. The Chamber has begun to use the website www.whatsup247.com to post events. When you go to the site, the site reads your location from your address and puts up events for that location. If you want to see another location, you can get it by entering the zip code. It seems to have fairly limited range so far. If a few other organizations would post events there, it might evolve into a community calendar.

If you want to keep up with the remodeling of the future Embers event hall, check out the Embers Venue Facebook page. Finally, Jasper County's first and only winery is getting ready to open. The Carpenter Creek Cellars has a Facebook page with lots of pictures.
