Holidays affect buses, parks and junk collection this week [Communities]

Your family isn’t the only thing that gets completely thrown out of whack with the nearing of the holidays… So does the regular schedule of almost everything. From schools to stores to office hours, nothing in this city is open, active or taking questions at the times they usually are during the weeks surrounding Christmas, etc.

So here are a few quick notes about services and activities that will be jamming to a different little drummer boy in the next few days:
