What to do in North Salem this President's Day Weekend: Friday, Feb 17 - Sunday, Feb 19
It's a holiday weekend and for many, the start of a week off. Schools are closed next week beginning with President's Day and many events are paused or canceled beginning this weekend. While it's a quieter time than usual, there are still things to do for those who are staying local. Gardeners are invited to a chat at the Ruth Keeler Library, The Aldrich museum in Ridgefield is hosting its monthly free day of programming, and North Salem's varsity girls basketball team is kicking off the first round of playoffs with an away game at Bronxville. How will you spend your time this winter weekend?
