please ask a friend or a neighbor who may have space available for you to use.

 

If you do not have a friend or neighbor who can help, please use the

DESIGNATED PARKING AREA - UPPER PARKING LOT AT LlTILE LEAGUE FIELD (ADJACENT TO SKATE PARK).

 

Please organize a ride from a friend, family member, or neighbor to get you to and from the designated parking area.

Those vehicles that do not get their vehicles off the street will be towed at the owner's expense.

There is an ordinance in place for the Borough for parking and will be enforced.

 

ALL VEHICLES NEED TO BE REMOVED FROM THE DESIGNATED PARKING AREA WITHIN 3 HOURS AFTER

THE PARKING BAN IS LIFTED OR THE VEHICLES WILL BE TOWED AT THE OWNER'S EXPENSE.

2015 Bicentennial Calendars Available!

A message from The Bicentennial Committee :

      The Griswold Bicentennial Committee will sell two Keepsake 2015 Griswold Calendars during December and

January. 

The first keepsake calendar is a full-color photo calendar with 16 months, 12/2014 through 3/2016,  plus photo pages for full year calendars of 2014 - 2016. Photos are of  Griswold scenes and vistas which remind us of the exquisite natural beauty of our hometown. Originally, this calendar was to be the product of a photo contest announced in 2013, however insufficient submissions forced the committee to reorganize the plan for the calendar. Committee members reached out to friends and family to contribute favorite photos of Griswold’s natural spaces, and the bicentennial calendar design was completed in November 2014. The 17-month calendar is $12.00 (cash only),and will go on sale on Friday Dec 5th.

    The second keepsake calendar is a black-and-white historicalCalendar, with 13 months, 1/2015 through 1/2016, of photos and historical nuggets about Griswold’s roots and heritage. The committee appreciates the photos and information contributed by the Griswold Historical Society, and contributed by several local families to make this keepsake calendar a very special souvenir of Griswold’s 200th anniversary year and Jewett City’s 120th anniversary year,  both in 2015. The 13-month calendar is $ 8.00 (cash only), and will go on sale on Thursday, Dec 12th.

All proceeds go to support the town and borough’s celebration activities in 2015, including the upcoming parade, music concerts, health fair and more!  Residents are encouraged to purchase calendars from the Town Clerk’s Office, the Slater Library, the Griswold Senior Center,  Jewett City Savings Bank, and/or at other local businesses which will be posted on this website.
