Voice of Freedom
The Historical Society still has cookbooks, photos, Historical Scrapbooks, for sale and has now added a bicentennial coin, which contains the dates of 1913-2013. The first 100-year coin (1813-1913) is no longer in circulation. Any of these items would make a lovely gift for any occasion, so why not contact Viola Greeley or Lorraine Overlock and support the Historical Society by purchasing one or all four of these historical items! The price of each item is only $10.
We are also in need of someone to represent the Town Cemeteries. We do have a volunteer who takes care of the cleaning up, etc., but we need a volunteer to chair this committee. If you are interested, please contact the Board of Selectmen and send your letter or call the Town Office.
We are in need of a health officer! You can notify the Board of Selectmen to get more information as to just what this position involves.
I have been asking for volunteers for some positions for quite a while now and must say I together with others are disappointed that out of a town of approximately 700, nobody has come forward. Please try to make an effort to give some of your time to the town you reside in. You probably are tired of reading my requests, but all I can do is keep asking until the positions are filled or volunteers step up to the plate.
Our deepest sympathy goes out to the family of Margureite Raven, who passed away last week.. May her soul forever rest in peace.
Quote of the week
"I can't believe October has come and gone. With Hurricane Sandy,
I think you can say it is gone with the wind!"
