About Town - May 2, 2013

Yesterday was May Day! In the olden days, folks would leave a flower on your doorstep, ring the door bell, and run.  If you caught them, you got a kiss. It would be nice to do that again!

More snow is on the way. However, we have had lovely weather and warm sun to make the flowers bloom.

“A Rather Abrasive Topic”

Ask the Handywoman!

By Kheli Mason, The Handy Woman LLC

Help Protect Our Native Birds

By David Rahbany

In spite of the recent snows, spring has arrived in Lyons!  One clear sign is the return of colorful bluebirds and finches to our town.  Unfortunately, these birds are under threat from some nasty neighbors.

House sparrows and starlings are non-native, invasive species that kill and out-compete native birds like the Mountain Bluebird.  Please help keep native songbirds coming back to Lyons by

The weekend of Friday, April 26, and Saturday, April 27, brings two of my favorite local bands to Oskar Blues in Lyons. The two bands are very different from each other, but similar in their ability to entertain folks with first-class music.
