Hello, Windham County! May has arrived, and temperatures are expected to climb into the 60s this weekend. It's expected to be cloudy and rainy, but sources tell the Reformer that behind those clouds, there's a large, yellow, bright disc in the sky that provides light and warmth, and it will eventually make an appearance. Apparently it's called "the sun."
More signs that summer is around the corner:
• Strolling of the Heifers is a month away, and the event has a new executive director, Erin O'Connor
• What's summer without a place to swim? The Hinsdale pool schedule says it's closing on August 9, and residents aren't happy about that.
• It was a bit chilly last weekend but that didn't stop local scouts from enjoying their annual Camporee.
• And warmer temperatures have cleared the way for work at the Vernon Dam, leading to a noticable drop in the water level at the Hinsdale boat ramp.
They call public records access laws "sunshine laws," and it's our job to shine a light on local government and the world around us. A digital-plus weekend subscription to the Reformer will warm your heart and help support our mission.
Have a great week!
