The Sanford Water District flushes its water mains twice a year to clear any build up of iron. The flushing is carried out between the hours of 10:00 p.m. and 5:00 a.m., so as to minimize any inconvenience that may be caused by the off-color water. The Spring flushing program begins this week. Check their website for the full schedule: http://www.sanfordwater.org/flushing.

Springvale Library is hosting “A Bad Vintage Virtual Murder Mystery” on​ Thursday, April 22 at 6:00 p.m. Here’s the story: The Grand Cru estate, situated on the fertile slopes of the Loire Valley in France, is a small family-run vineyard with considerable rustic charm and appeal. The owners of the estate, Max and Demi Liter, regularly host wine tasting evenings which allow their guests to sample the latest bottlings and place orders ahead of the big conglomerates. Unfortunately for the guests this evening, the vintage had more body than they were expecting. Max Liter has been discovered dead in a vat of wine. Up to 20 players have until April 19 to sign up. Character packets will be emailed on April 20. Click here to sign up or email Lesley at LUnger@springvalelibrary.org.
