As this dry spell continues, please use extreme caution with anything that has to do with fire. That means everything from the slightest flicker to cigarette butts for open flames. Everything is tinder dry. There is a Burn Ban in effect which means there are certain restrictions on outdoor burning. Common sense should tell us that this is not a good time to burn a pile of brush, and it’s also against the law. If you have any doubts, check the rules on the Internet.
The start of a new month means one thing for certain: it’s time for Ryderwood’s special monthly Town Breakfast this Saturday.

This is a major fund-raising event for the VFW who contributes so much to the community.
