CARROLL BALDWIN Hall will soon reopen. Savage's stone and slate community center, built in the 1920s, has undergone renovation over the past few years. This week, final touches on the wheelchair ramp and the bathroom should be finished, making the hall available again for community events. Just in time, too. According to Corrinne Arnold, president of the group that maintains the hall - the Carroll Baldwin Hall Memorial Association - no one was sure exactly when the renovations would be finished.

Finally, the good weather comes. Old friends return: the violets, the hyacinths, the flowering apple and pear, the gold fish. Old foes return too: the dandelion, the rabbit, the prolific yard cats. The pine tree fell, but the apple and peach both set out suckers I can remove and transplant. Everything is new again.*First the good news about Carroll Baldwin Hall. This historic auditorium and library was built about 70 years ago by the employees of the Savage Mill as a neighborhood recreation center.

Thirty-five years after the publication of her book on the history of Savage, Vera R. Filby is pleasantly surprised that people are still interested. "When they asked me to reprint it, I thought, `Who would be interested in it?' " Filby said, smiling. "Then again, history is history, and it's still accurate up to 1965. After that, it's someone else's worry." "They" is Carroll Baldwin Memorial Institute, a community group that works to preserve Carroll Baldwin Hall, a meeting place for Savage residents.

A FREE ICE cream social is scheduled from 6 p.m. to 8 p.m. today at Carroll Baldwin Hall in Savage. Thanks to a bit of hard work, some generous contributors and lots of volunteers, it promises to be a wonderful time. Organizer Jennifer Weaver thought a social might be a nice event for the Savage Community Association to hold. When she requested funds from the group, "they said `go ahead,'" she said. To stretch the funds, Weaver and Corrinne Arnold solicited donations and volunteers. Area ice cream purveyors donated lots of goodies: Jim Humprey of Hershey's donated Moose Tracks ice cream (vanilla ice cream with fudge and peanut butter cups)

LIVING IN an old town is like living in an old house -- there's always work needed to keep the joint up.Savage is no exception. Residents periodically invest sweat equity to make our town a pleasant place to live.Maintenance work, such as the cemetery cleanup last fall, is an example of that sweat equity.Now members of the Savage Community Association and the Carroll Baldwin Hall Committee have decided that it is time to do a little more. And, like all the best ideas, this one serves several purposes: to get rid of junk, bring in money and improve the appearance of Savage.

CALENDARS ARE usually designed to let us look ahead to the coming weeks and months. But the Savage Historical Society has fashioned a calendar that does the opposite - it gives us a glimpse of the past through the old photographs featured on the pages for each month. Called A Long Time Ago ... , the black-and-white calendar for 2002 includes 15 photographs of Savage taken during the early 1900s. It is a project of the fledgling Savage Historical Society, a group that first met in April.

IT WASN'T just the summer-like weather that made Saturday's tree lighting in Savage seem a bit like a Fourth of July celebration. This year, the community decided to forgo the traditional red-and-green Yuletide color palette in favor of a more patriotic motif. "The red, white and blue theme is because of Sept. 11th," said Charla Long, one of the organizers of the tree lighting. The 12-foot blue spruce, planted about two years ago on the grounds beside historic Carroll Baldwin Hall, is usually bedecked in colored lights and red bows at Christmastime.

IT'S JUST one day to the Savage Spring Celebration. Organizer Jennifer Weaver and her crew have spent the past week getting everything ready for this fun-filled afternoon event. Because the celebration includes an egg hunt, bonnet-making and other crafts, a parade led by the Easter Bunny and light refreshments served during the party, there is a lot to prepare.

FOR THE second year in a row, Chuck Dick brought Charles Dickens' story "A Christmas Carol" to life in Savage this month. The fund-raiser for Carroll Baldwin Hall almost didn't happen this year. Dick, who was raised in Savage, conceived the idea of annual holiday performances. He remembers when Carroll Baldwin Hall was used more frequently as a community center and he liked the idea of combining a fund-raiser with a cultural experience for the community. For the past few years, the hall has been undergoing restoration to repair a slate roof and upgrade the interior.

IT'S HALFWAY into September already - where has the year gone? The Bollman Truss Bridge is the last of its kind in the world. This red, iron railroad bridge was designed to be sturdy , easy to erect and easy to remove. Perhaps that's why ours is the last one. At 9 a.m. tomorrow, a brief ceremony will be held to unveil a plaque designating the bridge as a National Historic Landmark. The event is part of the county's sesquicentennial celebration. The bridge carries the distinction of being the first National Historic Civil Engineering Landmark, an honor conferred by the American Society of Civil Engineers in 1966.
