LEGO Morning is this Saturday at the Ashland Library! From 10:30 to noon, bring your 5 to 12 year old and let them start building. Then next Wednesday evening, stop by the Ashland Library from 7:00 to 8:00 pm to learn how to make your own laundry detergent and household cleaners. Save money and the environment at the same time.

There is an interesting concert next week at Randolph-Macon’s Blackwell Auditorium. On Saturday, January 17th, at 7:30 pm, Scott Ainslie will showcase his traditional acoustic blues through his personal roots in the Civil Rights movement. He is billed as a “powerful musician, a fine singer, and a masterful storyteller.” This concert is free and open to the public and a perfect example of the perks of living in a small college town.
Construction is set to begin on
South Center St. from the Ironhorse to
the apartments this week. While this
will be an inconvenience, it should be all done by the time its warm enough to
sit out on the sidewalk.
