We're keeping an eye on those April showers this last weekend of the month. Rain might dampen--but it won't cancel--the North Salem Democrats' free tree giveaway, happening this Saturday morning at Salem Center. If you're looking for indoor things to do, the Keeler Library welcomes painters and artists Friday morning, the Westchester Bluegrass Club presents fiddlers from Lisa's Pieces Saturday night, and the Katonah Museum of Art will close out the weekend with a Sunday evening of poetry. That and much more are all happening in and around our area this weekend; what will you get up to?
