Many thanks and a hearty welcome are extended to new Town Councilwoman Miriam Carlson for her willingness to serve our community. Miriam was selected to fill the vacant seat on the Council last week. Her experience as a former Mayor and her level head will be a great asset to our residents.
The Pinedale Travel and Tourism Commission was also fortunate to regain Octavian Dumistrescu as a commission member. Octavianís background in tourism and hospitality in addition to his institutional knowledge are welcomed as we help promote greater Pinedale.
Speaking of promoting Pinedale, letís support ourselves. Itís no surprise that Pinedale is once again a winter wonderland worthy of a postcard. Why travel out of town to shop or get outdoors? Stay and play local this winter; when it comes to shopping and recreationómany of our locally owned small businesses will be running black Friday sales, and we have all the winter sports anyone could ask for right here. Letís stick together and keep our money where it should be, at home, in Pinedale. Money spent in this community turns back into sponsorships for our kids, improvements to our facilities and more. After all, when was the last time an online retailer or big box store bought your kids 4-H animals?
The winter wonderland comes with a few added benefits. You get to shovel snow! What a great upper body and cardio work out! That said, when you are removing snow from your sidewalk as required, please donít push it all the way into the street. Instead push it onto the street gutter, or onto a bulb out. Snow being moved from your driveway, parking lot, or yard must be stored on your property and not pushed into the gutter or street. If you need more details, visit www.townofpinedale.us and look up Town of Pinedale ordinance 395-7.
When it comes to sidewalks, please take care to protect all the new and existing concrete. Many of the de-icing salts available on the market will cause damage to the concrete. Many of them will also burn animalís feet. There are products available that are considered "concrete safe". A number of options are available so, please take the time to make a good decision that provides for safety of pedestrians and the sidewalk.
By now, most of you are cooking, visiting, and enjoying the season with your own traditions. We here at the Town want to wish you a wonderful and safe winter full of merriment and good cheer. Let the Holidays begin!
