Were the Gypsy Moth Caterpillars this summer a preview of things to come? State Representative Mike France will be hosting a Gypsy Moth seminar with Dr. Kilby Stafford, Chief Entomologist of the Connecticut Agricultural Experiment Station, to share information on the potential for gypsy moth infestation in 2016 in Ledyard and what steps residents can take to minimize the impact. This session will be held this Thursday from 6:00PM - 7:00PM at the Ledyard Senior Center in Gales Ferry.

Just a reminder that THIS week is recycle week and Ledyard’s trash carrier picks up every other week. It seems that some people haven’t gotten the message quite yet.
