Carolyn Bradley, 258-2720

Greetings to all. I trust everyone is taking all the necessary precautions to safe guard you and your family in this COVID-19 crisis.

Due to this crisis lots of changes have been implemented in our town and community. Our town hall is closed to the public. They are asking citizens paying water bills to put the payment in an envelope and drop in the deposit box on the front of the building. As I am typing, a decision has been made to extend the purchase of vehicle decals to May 31.

Besides town hall, the library is closed to the public. Also, Knick Field and playground is also closed to the public until further notice.

The Natural Bridge Animal Hospital is open for “curbside” service. If you must bring your pet for treatments, or need to pick up food or meds, please call ahead, or when you arrive in the parking lot. A staff member will come out to get your pet and bring it in, and return it to you when finished. Food and or meds will also be brought out to you. Payments will be accepted by phone. Please call them for more information.

The farmers’ market vendor meeting that was scheduled for April 2 at the library has now been canceled. Tentative plans are to open the market for the season by May 15. As time gets closer the situation will be evaluated and a final decision will be made and announced.

The Easter egg hunt planned for April 11 and the first movie in the market event on April 25 have also been canceled.

Church services and activities and schools have also been canceled for at least two weeks. Watch for updates as the situation changes.

Business are open for your needs, following the governor’s guidelines, but remember to be kind and considerate to the employees and other customers.

Finally, April 12 is Easter ….. it will not be canceled, Christ is risen!
