Deployment ceremony tonight

Cathy Wakeman's Dryden Town Talk in this morning's Journal lists a lot of happenings, including one tonight:

  • There will be a deployment ceremony at 6:00pm tonight for 87 men and women going to Afghanistan for a year. The ceremony will be at the Armory on Hanshaw Road.

  • Nine Dryden Junior Girl Scouts earned Girl Scouting's Bronze Award for their work on a variety of local projects.

  • The Salvation Army raised $2950 in its Red Kettle campaign in Dryden over the holidays.

  • The Concert for the Cafe was a success, and the next Dryden Community Cafe event will be this Saturday, the 19th, as Mrs. McPuppet entertains at the cafe at 11:00am.

  • On January 30th, the US Military Academy's Jazz Knights will be playing at Dryden High School at 7:00pm, with a workshop for students beforehand at 6:00pm.

(I can't make it to the deployment ceremony because I have a Dryden Town Historical Society meeting, but if anyone has pictures to post, let me know.)

The article on weather and accidents doesn't list anything in Dryden, but I saw a lot of cars off the road around twilight yesterday.

The Monitor reports a theft of around $11,500 in copper piping from ModuHeat.
