OK, I must confess...not a big fan of hiking in the winter. Of course, that's just me. Judging by the folks strolling and/or jogging on my road, cold weather is a great time for enjoying the outdoors. If you're one of those hardy types, throw on your hat and scarf because there are two upcoming hikes. And if you're like me, who knows? We could have one of those unseasonably warm days we've been enjoying periodically this fall.

Still in a no-hike, no-way mood? Well how about you put on some nice cozy clothes and take yourself to a local concert? Sound more your speed?

Air National Guard Band
Saturday, December 2 at 7:30 p.m. (doors open at 6:45 p.m.)
If you think military bands are only about marching music, you have to come to this free concert. Held at the Upper Dauphin Area Middle School, this concert will feature an Upper Dauphin alumni, Dawn Hoffman, who is both a band member and one of the people who helped arrange the performance. Thanks, Dawn!
