Morrill Town News
By Mindy Rowlands
The town clerk's hours are Mondays, 5-8 p.m., Tuesdays, noon-8 p.m. and Saturdays 8 a.m.-noon.
Where has this month gone? I know many people say the winters are long in Maine, but I honestly find they pass quite quickly. Mud season, though, seems to last far too long, especially when you are so “fortunate” as to have a mud season in the middle of January. By the time this article goes to print, though, we’re supposed to be back to our more frigid winter temperatures. I don’t hate cold weather, and I really dislike the winter “warm-ups” that bring out the mud, so, I’ll probably welcome the colder temperatures. Let’s have some snow, too! That would be lovely.
Good News Club
Good News Club will be starting back up at the Weymouth School here in Morrill on Monday, Jan. 28. The club will meet each Monday (unless there is no school that day or there is a snow day, etc.). It starts as soon as school ends for the day and goes until 4:45 p.m. All children in kindergarten to fifth grade are welcome to attend, as well as home-schooled students. Stan Rasztawicki, Ginger Sheldon and Julie Allen will lead the club. Permission slips are available at both the Weymouth and Ames schools. If you have any further questions or would like more information, call Stan at 342-2406.
Dog licenses were due on Dec. 31; however, dogs must be licensed for 2013 by Jan. 31 or there will be a $25 per dog late fee. It is $6 per spayed/neutered dogs and $11 for dogs that are not spayed or neutered. Late fees start Feb. 1. Just a reminder -- the last day the clerk's office is open in January is Tuesday, Jan. 29, so that is technically the last day you can register your dog without a late fee. I won't make special office hours.
