Monday through Friday, 1 1 to 2 and 5 to 10. Saturday hours are 5 p. m.- 1 1p. m. The restaurant will be closed on Sundays. Catering and banquet services are also available. Salvo and Amanda Bruno NOTICE The Greentown Water Department will be flushing hydrants the first week of April, aeather permitting. Hydrants are flushed to ensure all valves are working properly and to avoid sediment and deposit buildups. There is a possibility that some deposits will backwash into the water system during the flushing period. Customers may want to keep a bottle of water in the refrigerator for drinking and cooking, however the water is safe to drink and use. Also, it would be good to check for d i s c o l o r a t i o n b e f o r e bathing and doing laundry. The tcwn is sorry for any inconvenience to our customers.

Dates to Remember Daylights Saving Time begins March 11 St. Patrick’s Day, March 17 Palm Sunday, April 1 April Fools Day, April 1 Easter Sunday, April 8 Earth Day, April 22 - Move Clocks I Forward Just when we got used to the idea of being a state which observes Daylight Saving time, the date at which it begins changed. Instead of the first Sunday in April, as it has been, Daylight Saving will begin at 2: OO a. m. the second Sunday of March. This is by, federal law. It is part of the Energy Policy Act of 2005. The idea of Daylight Saving being an energy issue is based on the assumption that people use the most electricity in the evening after work. By giving an additional hour of daylight in the evening, lights may not be turned on so soon. This includes lighting for evening sports. On the subject of time, since Indiana is not all on the same time zone, it can be confusing when traveling throughout the state.

Navy Plane Accident of I943 Tom Howell took this photo in March 1943 on road 850 E about ! h mile north of Greentqwn. He was seventeen years old at the time. A Navy trainer plane had landed in the field on the east side of the road. Tom guesses the reason may have been running out of fuel. The plane attempted a takeoff heading south from the corner of 100 N and 850 E but hit a post, which resulted in the plane being in the position seen in the photo. The wing hit the top of the car of Ora and Maggie Hunsinger. The current Grisssom Air Reserve Base was opened in July 1942 by the US. Navy. It was named Bunker Hill Naval Air Station and served as a training base for naval pilots. According to the Grissom Air Museum, thousands of pilots were trained for the Nay. Marines, and Coast Guard.
