We hope to safely celebrate our postponed Groundhog Day in Duane Park, Thursday, February 4. The prediction is for an extended winter! We will have a festive and socially distanced celebration of this news on Thursday, 4pm-6pm.

Shred Day is postponed to April 24, 2021.

Free and Secure Paper Shredding in honor of Earth Day. The truck will be parked on the north side of Duane Park from 10am – 2pm. So go ahead, Marie Kondo all those papers taking up space in desk drawers and filing cabinets; just be sure to thank them for their service while you watch the shredding via video.

Celebrate Groundhog Day in Duane Park, Sunday, February 2, 11am – 1pm.  Whether the prediction is for an extended winter or an early spring, we will have a festive celebration of both.
