Ryderwood News 01.02.13

Happy New Year! We were with the grand-boys for Christmas but I heard that there were nearly 90 people at the Community Dinner. I believe that’s more than attended the Thanksgiving dinner. I know I say this every year, but there’s just nothing quite like these community feasts! While this is being written, we look forward to a fun New Year’s Eve chili dinner at the Café.

Vader News 01.02.13
After a Christmas full of family gatherings, good food and lots of presents, it’s time for out with the old and in with the new! And speaking of old, I recently revisited the "Access Newspaper" website through our local Timberland Library. Looking into the past has always given insight to the future of Vader. If you are a Library card holding member, there’s tons of information you can access while home-bound during the blah days of winter. If you’re not a member and don’t wish to subscribe for a year, they do have rates that can accommodate a week, month, 6 months etc. Try it, there is a lot to offer.

The best of Town Crier’s 2012 crime and injury reports
