We ask that you please support our local businesses. The outdoor dining areas in downtown at W Lebanon Ave and W College Ave remain in place for you to enjoy the Fall weather. The local shops have online options for ordering and are open for you to browse. Local restaurants are offering take-out, curbside pick-up, and some are open for indoor dining. Continue to support them as we all navigate the ongoing pandemic.
