Opportunities to come:
• Early pansies are coming to Lindsborg Greenhouse by week's end, we are told. Won't it be a relief to plant those little pops of freshness and color around town?
• Lindsborg historic redeveloper Jim Prugh, spouse Diane Fatheree, and college-age son Ben Prugh will be in Lindsborg Mar 12-14. Please plan to swing by an informal, come-and-go social hour in honor of Jim, Diane and Ben at Farley's Bar and Grill from 5:45-6:45 p.m. Monday, Mar 13. Let's cheer a family that's been a big part of Lindsborg's upswing over a decade.
• Many have been asking for a detailed learning session on social media, especially Facebook for businesses. It is scheduled! Megan Gallucci of American Family Insurance will walk us through the basics and a bit more at 6 p.m. Thursday, March 16, in city council chambers at City Hall. Then we will adjourn to a Main Street location for a "Let's Get Social" beverage and/or snack.
• We're hearing more safety concerns about more bicycles ridden fast and hard on downtown sidewalks. Let's kindly remind riders that both they and sidewalk pedestrians are at risk.
