To date, five large jugs have been collected at collec- tions sites including McDonalds and Wal-Mart in Milford, and the Milford Elks Lodge, where the Scouts meet.

Help! There's no need for that! If you can plan ahead, we can measure your windows, order your blinds and shades and have them installed before you arrive home from settlement (or at least that same day. ) If you don't plan ahead, all is not lost - we have a temporary shade available that actually works for light control and privacy that we can put in your windows until your "real" treatments come in. How far ahead do you need to plan? For many blinds and shades - in fact, most of the popular ones- we can have the product in only a week. The more elaborate take a little longer - about three weeks. We have working models on display in our showroom, so we can demonstrate how they work and what your options are, then we' II meet with you at the house to choose colors! Q A Ron Oronzio I have draperies on my windows because I need privacy. What's the best way to deal with having them cleaned that will have them off the windows the shortest amotmt of time? With on- site dry cleaning, you will not have to be without your draperies at all! We come into your home and in a few hours your draperies are clean and fresh. The results are guaranteed against shrinkage and fading, and safe for all fabrics. While we are there, we can also freshen up lampshades, oriental-style area rugs, blinds, etc. - even furniture. The care label inside your sofa may suggest dry cleaning depending on the fabric it is constructed of - do not confuse this with steam cleaning which uses water in its process. Dry cleaning is safe for all fabrics, and now it is convenient too! CAPE GAZETTE, Friday, April 10 - April 16, 1998 - 39 a new people and plant mover.
