Time to get rid of stuff.
Nasty stuff mostly.
The annual Household Hazardous Waste Collection is coming to the NC Road Commission this Saturday from 8am-2pm.
Here’s your opportunity to rid your garage, basement, storage shed, or bathroom(?) of those various items you do not want to flush down the bowl or dump in the yard.
Televisions that seem to be taking up residence in our wooded areas can be disposed of along with other electronics and any fluids, spray cans, paint, light bulbs, etc. will be cheerfully accepted by a courageous group of volunteers.
TVs will cost $20 but the rest is free (though donations are heartily welcomed) and if you want to see what our county gets rid of each year you can volunteer to be a part of a very cool group of folks doing what they can for the local environment. Just contact the Drain Office at 231.689.7214 and they will give you the skinny.
Oh, and no tires, this year. Make a swing or a sandbox or just have the tire place where you get your new ones dispose of them because after collecting enough to fill the Grand Canyon 6-7 times the past few years the group is focusing on other materials this year.
Take a Chance (on me).
Ahh yes, ABBA and Mamma Mia.
Like to sing and dance and be part of community theater ? Thinking maybe you’d like to be cast in the Meryl Streep role (Donna) or looking to capture the ingenue part (Sophie) mastered by Amanda Seyfried?
Here’s your chance as LionHeart Productions will hold auditions Tuesday and Wednesday at the Grant Elementary multi-purpose room (160 E State Rd) from 6:30-9:00pm.
Be ready to give the pipes a go either via the accompanist ( one will be available) or a karaoke track.
November will be when the curtain opens on the latest LionHeart Fall Musical.
Russell Gilbert Memorial Kids Free Fishing Day
Perhaps the premier event for kids in the area and it is all free because of the work done by the sea of volunteers and supporters making it happen.
At the forefront of these efforts are the daughters of Russ Gilbert and their Mom but this is one of those events the community ponies up for in a big time way and it is not to be missed. There is some serious magic in the air during this Mill Pond happening.
Prizes awarded. Free donuts in am and free hotdogs to all in attendance at noon. Money for tagged fish. Registration starts at 8am and poles hit the water at 9.
