Putnam Patter for Nov. 3

Wednesday, November 3, 2010

Leaf pickup throughout November

The Greencastle Department of Public Works will run through the end of November.

The department advises all in the city limits to rake their leaves only (no limbs or other debris) to the side of the curb or between the sidewalk and the street. For those who do not have a curb or sidewalk, put leaves out near the street, but not in it.

Additionally, the city does not pick up leaves in bags.

Public works will be following the trash routes, so residents should have them out the day before because they only go through each day's route once during the week unless they are ahead of schedule.

Weather, holidays or breakdowns may cause the city to get behind. In such cases, they will try to run the routes a day ahead of time.

Holidays will be run the day before if possible along with the regular route; these dates are Nov. 2, 11, 25 and 26 this year.

The department of public works strives to notify the public of the leaf pickup and updates for it by the Banner Graphic, the radio and now the Internet on the City of Greencastle's website.

Mommy & Me holiday edition

GREENCASTLE -- The last of four Mommy & Me sessions for 2010 will be the holiday edition, which runs each Wednesday today through Dec. 8, excluding Nov. 24.

The holiday edition will include the story behind our holiday seasons, holiday-themed games and crafts. Mommy may even leave with new food ideas for that special dinner in her house.

At Mommy & Me infants, toddlers and preschoolers have a chance to interact with each other and their caregivers have time to do projects with their children as well as connect with other parents. Daycare groups are welcome.

Contact Troy Scott at 653-3395 or tscott@cityofgreencastle.com with questions. Pre registration is requested.

The sessions will run from 9:30 to 11:30 a.m. each Wednesday. The Nov. 3, 10 and 17 meetings will be at the Putnam County Public Library. The Dec. 1 and 8 meetings will be at the Putnam County Museum. A program allows for a maximum of 15 registrants and a minimum of five.
