Ridgefield Events - April 2010
Dave Standal tells me that census forms were not sent to PO boxes - residents with a PO box have to pick up their forms at the Post Office. Please be sure to get a form and send it in - it means more money for schools and other local entities. Thanks Dave for sending that information - seems like it was a goof-up on the government's part.
First Friday is tomorrow in downtown Ridgefield. Many of the stores will be open late and some have special offers. The weather outside may be dreadful, but the atmosphere inside at these shops will be delightful - come help us celebrate!
Each Tuesday night Tim Dawdy hosts a rotating cast of talented musicians at East Fork Cellars. Enjoy great fresh seafood from Pacific Best Fish Cafe (next door) and a glass of wine in a casual, fun-filled atmosphere. (6:30PM-9:00PM) Information: 727-3055, http://eastforkcellars.com
