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.
There were five tables of 45s in play at the South Berwick Community Centre on Feb. 7. Prizewinners were first, Arthur Salsman; second, Marilyn Baptie; third, Roxie Redden; fourth, Carroll Garland; 50/50, George Smith and door prize, Al Sipley.
