The Old Fiske Museum will hold its annual Holiday Open House on Sunday, December 2, 2012, 1:00 p.m. - 4:00 p.m.
The featured event will be the Shane Wood Jazz Trio offering exciting renditions of holiday music as well as jazz classics.

Come enjoy the music, refreshments and special chocolates donated by Mount St. Mary's Abbey.

5. Parking Ban Takes Effect on Saturday
The ban on all parking on public roads will go into effect today and will last until April 1, 2013. Between 6:00 p.m. and 6:00 a.m., there will be no public parking allowed. Any car that interferes with the removal of snow or ice between those hours will be towed by the town. The ban will be enforced judicially to prevent residents from worrying about parking in downtown during the evening or on a side road on nights where snow removal is not an issue.
