The Fairhaven Selectboard received 17 photos from seven people for the 2018 annual report cover. The board had trouble deciding on one at its meeting on 1/14/19, so they picked two, one for the front and one for the back.
The names were not included in the copies that the board members saw so they would not be biased. Both pictures are from Fort Phoenix.
Assistant Town Administrator Vicki Paquette won the back cover, with her photo of the Fairhaven Villiage Militia’s small cannon near one of the few trees at Fort Phoenix, facing south towards the Atlantic. It was taken during the encampment in September, 2018.
Ms. Paquette said she got engaged by that tree on July 4, so it has a special meaning for her, and that’s why she took the picture.
Adam Katz won the cover with his photo of FVM members silhouetted against a colorful setting sun, loading the cannons for the annual Memorial Day weekend firing in 2017.
All 17 submitted photos are available for viewing on the town’s Facebook page. Search for “Fairhaven Town Hall.”
The annual report will be printed and available in time for Town Meeting on 5/4/19. It will also be available online on the town’s website.
