George Ward delivered 3 cord of firewood that was cut and split perfectly. I highly recommend him for your firewood. He can be reached at 322-8719. It may be too late for this year, but another year is coming.

The recycling center is still not accepting glass. There are lots of other things that you can take there. If you want a list of eligible items, go to your town office or stop by the center and they will be happy to answer your questions.
