We are in the midst of the seemingly endless Covid-19 pandemic and a very contentious presidential election and what better way to sooth all our jangled nerves that are stretched taut than to have a few delicious donuts!
I am not sure that Dr. Anthony Fauci recommended having donuts along with face masks, hand washing and social distancing, but for our mental health he certainly should have.
As luck would have it the Highland Lions Club will be having one of their Krispy Kreme Donut Sales on Saturday, October 10th from 9 a.m. to 2 p.m. (or until they are sold out) The Lions will be outside of the Highland Town Hall in Eldred, across the street from Pecks Market selling fresh donuts.
From previously covering and buying donuts at this sale, I know that several Lions members get up that morning at some ungodly hour and then drive to the Krispy Kreme factory in Scranton and pull those donuts right off the factory line so you cannot get any fresher than that!
The classic Krispy Kreme glazed donuts are $8.00 per dozen and the chocolate, lemon, crème, and raspberry filled donuts are $8.00 for a half dozen and these need to be ordered in advance from any Lions Club member. All the proceeds from the sale go towards the Highland Lions Scholarship Fund which awards their yearly scholarships to deserving seniors from the Eldred School's graduating senior class and funds the Lions vision care programs.
The Krispy Kreme donuts sale is an extremely popular event so get there as early as possible for the best selection. For more information or to order the filled donuts you can call Martha Worzel at (845) 557-6973.
With everyone spending so much time in the house, it is a great time to clean out all your files and purge all your old papers.
The Barryville Chamber of Commerce and Jeff Bank, The Town of Highland, and the Town of Lumberland will be sponsoring a Community Shred Day on Saturday, October 3rd from 9 a.m. to 12 p.m. You can bring any of your personal and business related documents to the shredder set up at the Eldred Junior-Senior High School, 600 State Route 55, in Eldred. The shredding services are free and open to the public.
October 4th through 10th is National Fire Prevention Week and in addition to checking that your smoke and carbon detectors are in good working order, this year's education programs “Serve Up Fire Safety in the Kitchen” focus on cooking safety practices since the leading cause of home fires and fire related injuries is caused by unsafe cooking and unattended stoves. For more information about safe cooking practices go to the National Fire Prevention Association's website at nfpa.org/Public Education.
Next Saturday October 3rd is the joint Town of Highland and the Town of Lumberland's Fall Cleanup Day. The site for bring all your unwanted junk you want to throw out is the new Town of Highland Garage at 725 Route 55 behind the Highland Senior Center. The hours are 8 a.m. to noon.
