"Make hay while the sun shines." I've felt pretty good the last couple of weeks and have gone to a multitude of meetings; my poor husband has had a lot of "Getyouroni." Yesterday I did some yard work, cleaned my car, cleaned out some cabinets and scrubbed the shower. Hint: do not clean the shower fully dressed and accidentally turn the shower on.

Trash needs to be out by 6 a.m. This is due to a transition delay from PERC to Fiberight LLC, and for this reason the waste removed needs to be transported to Crossroads in Norridgewock and they close earlier than PERC.

There will be a special town meeting on April 18 at 6 p.m. at the Community Center. Warrants are posted around town and can also be found on the town website and Facebook pages.

There will be a pancake breakfast at the Unity College Student Center presented by the Unity College Sugarmakers on Saturday, April 21, from 9 to 11 a.m. Adult and kid plates are available ranging in price from $5 to $8. From noon to 3 p.m. there will be an Earth Day Fair in the gymnasium with lots of activities. The fair is free and open to the public.

Cone'Z has opened for the season. Get your Gifford's ice cream and soft serve. I've already had my first root beer float of the season. Generous servings and fairly priced.
