Hey Neighbors!

What a surprise with the storm mid-week, from rain to sleet Wednesday and then snow overnight to Thursday, the forecasts were difficult to predict and honestly a little all over the place. Expect highs in the 50s and 60s next week for quite the contrast!

Mark your calendars for the exciting upcoming Solar Eclipse this coming Monday, April 8th, with Sharon Springs being just outside of the Path of Totality. SSCS will be closed to allow students to safely view the event and the school is passing out special eclipse glasses to students prior. Remember, according to the American Academy of Ophthalmology (AAO), “There is only one safe way to look directly at the sun, whether during an eclipse or not: through special-purpose solar filters. These solar filters are used in eclipse glasses or in hand-held solar viewers. They must meet a very specific worldwide standard known as ISO 12312-2,” according to the AAO’s website.

Bison Island Ranch is hosting Ranch Store Hours this Sunday, April 7th from 1:00-3:00 PM. Swing by and stock up on bison ground & bison steaks for your solar eclipse watch party! Bison Island Ranch is located at 194 Engleville Rd, Sharon Springs, NY 13459. Visit www.bisonislandranch.com for more information.

Mark your calendars for the big Easter Egg Hunt at SSCS sponsored by KNK Landscaping scheduled for Saturday, April 20th at 12 PM.

The Sharon Springs Rescue Squad is a cornerstone of the community! With many active members, they are always looking for new volunteers for Drivers, First Responders, Social Members, and EMT’s. SSRS will fund any training that is needed. SSRS meets the first Monday of the month at 7 PM and would be happy to answer any questions on how to support your community.
