This Saturday, a recycling celebration

This Saturday sees Ripton celebrate 20 years of recycling. 20 years!

A nice time to be had, for those bringing their goods Saturday morning:
Come between 9 and noon and enjoy hot drinks, cookies and even burgers -
thanks to Marty and Carol Kulczyk and their grill.

So, what better way
to enjoy the New Year than to hang out in a snowstorm at the Town Shed, greet
your neighbors, have some treats and recycle all at the same time.
That's from Warren and Barry King, to whom we owe so much for keeping this alive.

Ripton survives the storm

We survived this week's storm. Lots of hard work by CVPS, tree services, and our own selves carries us through the winds and fallen trees.

Windstorm sweeps Ripton

Ripton has been hammered by a tremendous windstorm. Power is out across our town. Trees have been toppled, some across power lines, others into yards or across roads.

Here's the latest from CVPS: 298 people (households?) are out, as of 4:25 pm today.

If you have images or video to share, please do! Comment here, or send email to bryan dot alexander at gmail dot com.
