We had a parade!
After last year’s cancellations, it really does feel good to go to these events this year. See page 12 for Fairhaven’s Veterans Day ceremony, and page 13 for Acushnet’s.
Our annual shopping issue is next week, so if you have a business and want to be included, you have to run a paid ad…yes, a paid ad. Other restrictions apply, so, email or call (see page 3 for details).
Acushnet will soon be in need of a new Town Administrator (see page 16). No news yet on how they will proceed. Don’t worry, it’ll probably be normal.
DaCunha’s Disptaches is back this week. The column will only appear occasionally, now that school is getting back to normal.
We have events getting back up to speed…well, mostly.
The big Gridiron bonfire is next week, on Thanksgiving Eve. Now, that’s a fun event. The fire department lights up a huge HUGE (did I mention huge?) pile of wood, pallets, all kinds of stuff. The band is usually there, and there’s hot chocolate. I usually use the opportunity to buy a pair of Blue Devils sweatpants or sweatshirt.
Then, on Thursday our kids face off against the Dartmouth team. Y’know, our kids are pretty good this year. I think they might beat those Dartmouth Indians this year. In any case, it’s fun to watch. See page 5, under the bonfire, for details. The game is in Dartmouth this year, so our kids our in enemy territory. We need to show up and give ’em some backup.
There’s other stuff in here, of course…oh, right, PJ Keating says we made boo-boos in our story last week. I beg to differ. See page 4 for that.
Meanwhile, we are still plugging along, although any sane person would’ve shut down this thing years ago. We NEED reader support. We can’t do it on advertising alone, or on reader support alone. We need both. So if you like the paper, appreciate the news in here, please donate, any amount. We have a convenient PayPal link on our website, or feel free to send cash. Until next week then…see ya,
