Starting January 24, 2018

"There are two seasonal diversions that can ease the bite of any winter.  One is the January thaw.  The other is the seed catalogues." -  Hal Borland

A thaw indeed, as daytime temps will be above the freezing mark through the weekend. So take advantage of this winter respite to get out and wander in Warren County! (May we suggest a nice hike at beautiful Merrill Creek Reservoir, depicted above?) You'll find other ideas in this newsletter and also on www.ExploreWarren.org! Don't forget, Centenary Stage Company's January Thaw Music Fest wraps up this Saturday with a performance by Matuto, and there's comedy, kids' events, art, yoga and more. So read on, and Happy Wanderings!
