Each year on the fourth Thursday in November, Americans come together around the table to enjoy a wonderful meal. The purpose is to rejoice and be thankful for our many blessings, independence and peace. An event that Americans commonly call the “First Thanksgiving” was celebrated by the Pilgrims after their first harvest here in the New World in 1621. The feast lasted three days featuring turkey as the main fare in the celebration.  Today families and friends continue this annual holiday tradition by gathering and eating all kinds of their favorite foods. As a result, Americans eat more food on Thanksgiving Day than on any other day of the year.


This year Thanksgiving is observed on

November 26th.

Beginning May 14, 2005, Royalton Township Board adopted an amendment to Ordinance Number 25, "Water Rate Ordinance", which addresses Water Conservation Regulations.  This amendment allows for lawn sprinkling using municipal (city) water on days that coincide with your address.  Properties with 'even' number ending addresses (example - 1436) may use water from the public water system for the purpose of sprinkling only on 'even' numbered calendar days, and residents whose address ends in 'odd' numbers (example - 295) may use water from the public water system for the purpose of sprinkling only on 'odd' numbered calendar days.  Properties without an assigned address are considered 'odd' numbered for the purpose of this ordinance.

Exemptions for this rule are for newly planted grass, trees, and other plants for the first 30 days following planting.  Further, sprinkling of vegetable gardens is exempt from this section of the ordinance.  Also, 'sprinkling' shall not include drip irrigation systems, the use of a container such as a watering can or pitcher, or the use of hose equipment with a spring-loaded shutoff device that automatically stops the flow of water if the hose is left unattended.
