Exciting Changes Coming to Deerfield Towne Center
The Deerfield Towne Center is preparing for a slew of new openings this winter and spring. Soon visitors will be able to grab a made-to-order treat at Duck Donuts, pick up supplies for their furry companions at PetPeople and meet friends for dinner and drinks at trendy Maplewood Kitchen & Bar.
The new stores and restaurants are part of a multiphase transformation underway at the Towne Center. Among the other amenities being added are new seating and gathering areas, a built-in stage for performances, additional parking and more. For details, visit the Towne Center's website.
The Deerfield Township Fire Rescue team will host a free class for residents interested in learning CPR and first aid skills. The four-hour workshop takes place Saturday, Feb. 3, from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m. in Fire Station 57 at 3435 U.S. Route 22.
Sudden cardiac arrest is a leading cause of death in adults. According to the American Heart Association, CPR performed in the first few minutes of a cardiac arrest can double a person's chance of survival. The township offers CPR and first aid classes three times each year as a critical part of its mission to inform and educate the Deerfield community about important public safety topics.
Class sizes are limited, and pre-registration is required. To reserve your spot, visit our website.
Have you been feeling the effects of this year's bitterly cold start in your heating bill? Below are tips that can help save you money while you wait for temperatures to rise:
Upgrade your thermostat. Try lowering the temperature setting on your thermostat a few degrees whenever you plan to be away from your home for four or more hours. Better yet, purchase a programmable thermostat that does this for you ... and automatically raises the temperature just before you're set to arrive home from work.
Check your air filter. Air filters should be changed monthly to keep your furnace running at peak efficiency. Dirty air filters require your furnace to work harder, using more energy.
Adjust your ceiling fan. While operating your ceiling fan in the winter may seem counterintuitive, many new models allow you to reverse the motor to turn the fan in a clockwise direction. This can pull warm air that rises toward the ceiling down into your living area.
Remove or seal your window air conditioners. Window air conditioners provide an easy way for cold air to enter your home. If it's not possible to remove your window unit, try purchasing an insulated cover or sealing the area around it with plastic sheeting.
Caw Lumbo is a child crow and amateur detective. So, when Billy the Raccoon's backpack goes missing - or is it stolen? - Caw puts her sleuthing skills to the test. Everyone becomes a suspect in The Case of the Kidnapped Backpack, a musical whodunit presented by Cincinnati's own Madcap Puppets on Sunday, Feb. 11, at Kings High School Auditorium.
The township is proud to partner with the Arts Alliance to bring Madcap Productions back to Deerfield. Founded in 1981, Madcap has built its reputation on original fairytale and comic performances, touring ensembles to schools, community centers, art museums and libraries.
The auditorium will open at 1:45 p.m.; the show starts at 2 p.m. Tickets are $2 per person and are available online in advance (credit card) or at the door (cash or check only). Each ticket includes free after-show games and other activities for kids.
