March 20th is the first day of spring for us in the Northern Hemisphere! It is something that many of us have been eagerly awaiting from the long winter this year. What is your favorite spring-time activity? For many, activities may include running/jogging, riding bicycles, sidewalk chalk with the kiddos, planning and preparing the garden, getting the boats and motorcycles ready, etc. There are lots of ways to spend our time outdoors together and enjoy the sunshine! Take time this spring to include a nature walk, picnic, or visit one of Derry’s local conservation areas for a family hike. I look forward to seeing fellow Derry residents out and about this Spring enjoying the natural beauty we have preserved not only in our backyards, but in the town as well. Happy Spring, everyone!
