The preserves are preparing for St. Paddy’s Day by cooking up plenty of corned beef and cabbage and awaiting the first blooms of spring. Spring Break events are scheduled that are sure to have both parents and kids alike enjoying the change in the weather. Locally, there are some interesting things afoot as well!
