** Saturday March 24 at 3 p.m. The Waynetown Merchants will once again sponsor their Easter Egg Hunt. This will be held at Tremaine Park. They define three age groups. First group 1 to 4 year olds, group two 5-8 year olds and in group three ages 9 through 11. There are more than 800 eggs filled with surprises and candy. Each age group will have one golden egg and one silver egg. If your child has one of these there are additional prizes given out. Prizes range for Bikes and helmets to wagons, tricycles to games. This has been a fun event for the last few years. Parents, grandparents bring a child out for this event.
** The Waynetown Freedom Festival Committee met and was gracious to have me attend. Sounds like this year will be even better than previous years. They are working hard. There will be updates as we get closer. Let me share some information with you. The event will be held June 30 at Tremaine Park. Events: Baseball in the morning. Food and vendors. Old antique tractor show by Kevin Foy. HIM (Hogs in Ministry) will have their Veteran’s Ride. There will be a band. I heard there are other fun things in the works. This festival is exciting and worth attending for the day.
** Waynetown Fire Department has had their Insurance Services Organization inspection. Some will know this as an ISO rating. More goes into this multi page rating than our residents know. It is not just the fire department, but the town utilities and infrastructure and how it is distributed and maintained comes into account. For the fire department just a sampling is the equipment and condition, the maintenance and inspections, and ach person’s training. This means department members taking additional training. Frankly I find it an honor for those who serve the fire department. For the utility it is important as a community we support better water mains for water distribution. The better these scores we can obtain grants, attract outside industry all this can keep our town viable. We are building for our children’s future. Some may wonder what the big deal here is. These scores have direct impact on much property insurance cost. The lower your rating score is the better. Sounds odd I know. It takes a lot of work to have higher numbers in the back ground rating to lower our hazard rating. The lower the hazard rating the lower our insurance cost. It is not just a bit of work. This takes into account months and years of data. Both the fire department and town utilities work endlessly to provide services. Many working on this for us are not paid. They provide more than just first response for the community. Their efforts have a direct impact on our safety and providing better living for this great community.
Question of the Week:

Spring officially hits the calendar Tuesday. But says it's still going to be chilly. Are you ready for warmer temps?
