11/4/10 Chill in the Air, Train Day Approaches, Jack the Dog

Now November is here and we're folding our arms, turning the heat on, and saying, "It's chilly out here!" The leaves have turned and fallen, and you can smell the wood smoke outside. It's a beautiful time of year.

The PTA's of Henry Clay and John M. Gandy would like to thank everyone who volunteered or participated in the Tiger Trot 5K race! It was a wonderful day, the weather was perfect, and the runner finished in record time. Everything you do to support our schools makes our town a better place.

The 7th Annual Ashland Train Day is quickly approaching. Mark your calendar for Saturday, November 13th, from 10 to 4pm. There will be train activities all over town: model train displays at the Arts and Activities Center, music at the library, and real trains going up and down the tracks all day long! It's a wonderful day to celebrate the history of trains, and the beginnings of our sweet town. You can find out more information at http://www.ashlandtrainday.com/.

The Ashland Firehouse Theater has opening it's doors for the 2010-2011 season, and this Saturday night they'll be showing "The Godfather." What a wonderful classic to see on the big screen! Admission is still $6 and they are going to offer Starbuck's coffee to warm the patrons. On Saturday evenings doors open at 6:45 and the movie starts at 7:30. You can visit http://www.ashlandfirehousetheater.org/ or call 798-9721 for more information.

Lastly, goodnight to my old dog Jack. A long time ago it was just me and Jack, before a husband and kids came along. He was such a good dog. I'll tell you about him when my heart isn't broken.

Snuggle with someone you love this week. Bundle up and walk around town. Call or email me with your Ashland news: 310-5320, ashlandnews@gmail.com. Have a good week.
