Lots of good stuff in here this week (as always, right?). Select Board had some entertaining moments (see page 4), but I kind of glossed over a bit of it because we just didn’t have the space this week.
The police department gave awards to two members and we gave that a little more ink (see page 13). Congratulations to both of those guys.
While we’re on the PD, the new K9 has a name. See page 18 to see what it is.
The town also held a tax possession auction this week (see page 19). The town managed to get more than $1.7 million for 28 properties that had been taken for back taxes. It was a different kind of event, to be sure. But, of course, it was on deadline day, so here I am in the middle of the night…nay, at the crack of dawn finishing this up. Ah well.
Our cover story is one of my favorites. The rain almost wrecked it, but the militia guys are not easily daunted! They pulled it off and shook the earth. See page 12 for that. If you’ve never seen the (or heard) the cannons at the fort get fired, you really MUST get there the next time they do it. That should be in May, on Memorial Day weekend. So….pencil it in.
On Friday, the much anticipated free screening of “To Dust All Return,” is happening (see page 3). This is Alyssa Botelho’s second short film shown at town hall. Due to COVID, the audience will be capped at 100, so if you want to go, get there early.
There’s other stuff in here, of course…don’t want to give it all away, right?
