Pros and cons of owning an electric vehicle

Should I buy an electric car? This question has been on my mind for the last year or so, and I’d like to share what I’ve learned about the many pros and cons of owning an electric vehicle (EV).

Cardiac arrest is a leading cause of death in the world. Each year, more than 350,000 out-of-hospital cardiac arrests occur in the United States. Almost three out of four of those happen at home.

Help CBG maintain its mission serving Granby

As we enter our 53rd year of publishing the Granby Drummer, our mission remains the same as it was in 1970: to inform and educate all Granby residents on issues affecting our town through distribution of a free publication.

Appreciation for Fresh Access

I would like to say a few words in support of and in appreciation for the non-profit farming programs, and specifically for the Fresh Access Program offered to seniors in the community through the Granby Senior Center.

Respect our homes

Support for Local Charities

The Granby Living Facebook group is 10 years old this December. It was started with the goal of providing information to help and support our community. In recent years we have held an annual fundraiser to support two very worthwhile local charities, Waste Not Want Not Community Kitchen and the Granby Food Bank.
