The big shred: It’s time to start sorting through your paperwork to locate any unneeded documents ready for shredding at the CountrySide/Cascades free shred event on Saturday, Sept. 29, from 9 a.m. until noon. As you sort, remember to remove any plastic materials. Paperclips, staples and any metal that can be bent by hand may remain. You should plan on taking any cardboard carrying boxes back home with you for reuse.
Farmers Market: Although the days are growing shorter and the air may be growing cooler, keep in mind that the Cascades Farmers Market continues on Sundays through Nov. 18, from 9 a.m. until 1 p.m. in the parking lot of the Cascades Senior Center. And, in case you’re wondering, yes, the time is right to begin pre-ordering holiday treats from area farmers.
