The Town of Ber­wick con­tin­ues to be a busy spot.

Ber­wick Li­brary will be closed Feb. 13 to 21, re­open­ing on Feb. 22. Li­brary users can still drop off items in the out­door book re­turn, and there will be no over­due charges in­curred dur­ing the clo­sure. All pro­grams will be can­celled dur­ing this time.

The grand open­ing of the Ber­wick Town Hall and Li­brary and the An­napo­lis Val­ley Re­gional Li­brary will be Feb. 22 from 6:30 to 8 p.m. There will be light re­fresh­ments and an op­por­tu­nity to tour the new build­ing at 236 Com­mer­cial St.

As you know, town hall em­ploy­ees are in their new, beau­ti­ful build­ing, with Christ Church as its hall back. Af­ter some main­te­nance, the hall will be ready for rental as of April 1.

Christ Church will re­sume its lun­cheons on April 5, the first Thurs­day of the month.

In ad­di­tion, the din­ner the­atre will be held May 4, 5, 6 and 18, 19 and 20. Also, in the fall, the an­nual flea mar­ket will re­turn.

It was great to have the town hall oc­cu­py­ing the space for the past year and now it is great for the con­gre­ga­tion to get their space back.

Last week was the 25th an­niver­sary for the Eagle Watch at Sh­effield Mills and, for the first time, I was in at­ten­dance. The birds were fed at 8:30 and 10:30 a.m. so we tried for the 10:30 feed­ing. It was a bright, sunny day, but very cold. Af­ter watch­ing for about 20 min­utes and only see­ing three birds in one tree and one in an­other as well as a few fly­ing over­head, we left. My niece later told me the birds swooped in for their feed shortly af­ter­wards.

I must say it was in­ter­est­ing watch­ing peo­ple go­ing up and down the steep slope to get to the field and the lit­tle chil­dren were very en­ter­tain­ing. They seemed obliv­i­ous to the wait and the cold and were hav­ing a grand time play­ing in the snow.
