Calling youth organizations who would like to take part in one of our community's most significant annual events.  Ever been to the Avenue of Flags?  It's a ceremony, at the cemetery, held for Norway's own servicemen killed in action.  The VFW could use your help folding flags, some of which were given to the VFW by families of the fallen troops.  This is not a noisy day at the jungle gym; this is a solemn ritual carried out for those who gave their lives to protect ours.  Start earning your stripes and ask about volunteering this Memorial Day.   
All City of Norway administrative offices and utility departments are closed Monday, May 25th, in observance of Memorial Day.  Have a safe and happy holiday.
The Norway-Vulcan area demonstrates a remarkable level of citizen engagement in organizations, volunteer work, and public events.  If you or someone you know is applying to a school, or for a job, remember that many colleges, universities, and employers look for volunteer work on candidates' applications and resumes. 

If you're a community member with an interest in the Jake Menghini Historical Museum, or simply in trying something new, consider becoming one of this season's summer guides. Visit the museum's page, use their contact info, and ask about it!
Apply for a sewer credit this year.
There is also a credit available for those who will be filling a full-size pool.  This is a separate credit; inquire about eligibility and scheduling by calling City Hall at 563-9961, extensions 200, 201, or 202.

Safe Routes to School (SR2S) is a national movement to make it safe, convenient, and fun for children to bicycle and walk to school.  When routes are safe, walking or biking to and from school is an easy way to get the regular physical activity children need to succeed.  Walking Wednesdays will be held each week for the remainder of April and throughout May at Norway-Vulcan Area Schools as part of the Safe Routes to School Program.  Students are encouraged to walk to school with their teachers, and to participate in fun, healthy activities. 

View the dates, times, and meeting places of the Walking Wednesdays program.

2015's ordering phase of our planting program is now at an end; we can no longer take orders for trees to be planted this year. 

Nevertheless, the information found on our Forestry & Spring Planting page (get there from Parks & Rec) will give you a good idea of how our program works, and how you can use local knowledge to optimize your participation. 

This year's planting report, written (very well) by local forester Otto Jacob, contains information worthwhile to be familiar with, regardless, and is still applicable for any resident planting on their own initiative.  

Thank you to every resident who has participated in our Spring Planting Program.  Your contribution benefits our community now, and will continue to benefit our community in the future.

The City of Norway is no longer selling dog tags.  You can now purchase dog tags from the Dickinson County Clerk's Office.
