It is amazing the things that you can get from the the town in which you live. I recently learned (thanks to my friend Felice) that the Highway department will deliver mulch and topsoil to your house - for FREE! That is amazing to me. When we used to live in Brunswick, the town offered free mulch - but you had to go and physically get it.
This is different. The town where we live now actually delivers it to your house. How nice.
Then - I recently learned about summer camp. Starting at age 6, the kids can go to summer camp from 9 AM - 3 PM and there is no set cost. When I found this out, I was shocked. No set cost? How can that be? The head of the youth department told me that most parents just pay a donation and you can pay whatever you want. And there is also summer camp for 4 year olds but that is only 3 days per week from 9 AM - noon. Again - no set cost.
Anyway - I guess that is why we pay taxes! But - these are things you should take advantage of!
