Spring Has Sprung! Starting March 22, 2023

Mr. Hammer: I say, here is a little peninsula, and here is a viaduct leading over to the mainland.
Chico: Alright, why a duck? (from the Marx Brothers movie The Cocoanuts)

Why a duck? Why not a duck?! Why not TWO ducks? Here's a mallard couple snapped by intrepid Wanderer Charlie Fineran as spring was arriving last year.

By equinox standards, spring is officially here and it may cause a mind to wander thinking about hot days, sun burns and veggies! Have you signed up for your CSA share yet? No? Well, no need to look further than Warren County because we've done the work for you. Check out the 2023 CSA page here.

This week is shaping up nicely with music, with Roy's Hall featuring returning favorite YARN, The Arts at St. Luke's is hosting Poor Man's Gambit and The Brass Roots band is appearing at Taphouse Grille.

Centenary Stage Company hosts a world premiere of a new show, and Easter events are already peeking their way through the Plan Ahead section, so take a gander!

Happy Spring and Happy Wanderings!
