The beauty of turning and falling leaves gives us autumn enjoyment . . . until we look around and wonder what to do with all those turned and fallen leaves on the lawn.
Well, James City County is offering a free option. The county will provide curbside leaf collection between Dec. 6 and Dec. 13 in Ford’s Colony.
County trucks will circulate through Ford’s Colony for one round of leaf collection — and then off to the dump — during that time. NOTE: Leaves must be secured in clear bags no larger than lawn or leaf bags, i.e. no more than 40 gallons. Please gather your leaves and have your bags on the curb by 8 a.m. Dec. 6.
Be sure to not include things like trimmed branches, grass clippings and other yard debris, however, as that will not be accepted. You can check the county website for more information on the free leaf pickup.
The popular Ford’s Colony Dance Band will perform on the Williamsburg Regional Library Theatre Stage on Thursday, Nov. 21 at 7:30 p.m. as part of the Dewey Decibel Concert Series.
The band will salute big-band royalty with its “Tribute to Count Basie,” a 90-minute set featuring favorites like “April in Paris,” “Shiny Stockings,” “Cute,” “Hay Burner” and “Jive at Five.” Admission is free, but a free-will donation will be taken to benefit the band. You can follow the band via its Facebook page.
The Dewey Decibel Concert Series is in its 20th anniversary season. It offers an eclectic mix of popular jazz, bluegrass, folk, Americana and classical music acts. All shows are at the Williamsburg Regional Library.
Future 2019 shows are Peninsula Concert Band, Holiday Concert Dec. 3; the Jae Sinnett Zero to 60 Quartet Christmas Special, Dec. 13; and the LCV Project, An Acoustic Christmas Dec. 19
