Searsmont Town News
Summer is going by way too fast. Tomorrow is our annual Book/Bake sale at the library. It is always a great time and good to see a lot of town folks. Had a few days of pouring rain but so enjoying the past few days – cooler and good sleeping nights.

A reminder to our residents: Burn Barrels are illegal and some materials are hazardous to burn i.e. plastics. Please contact Fraternity General Store or go on line to https://www13.informe.org/burnpermit/public/index.html for your burn permit. Fire Department response calls cost the Town and Residents money, Forest Service Fines also can be expensive and avoidable.
Tax bills have been sent, if you have not received yours please contact the Town Office at 342-5411.
“No project this big can be completed without a lot of helping hands,” Carol Robbins said. “Lots of thanks go to the 16 members of the Bicentennial Committee, nearly 20 others who helped the Committee, and all of the Bicentennial Week volunteers. The Town of Searsmont’s selectmen and town office staff have done so much to make this week happen, and the Historical Society’s leadership and members have been very valuable. So Bicentennial Week is finally here, and Searsmont invites one and all to celebrate with the town, enjoy good food and good company, marvel at the fireworks, and have fun.”
I’ll work on getting the full list of everyone involved for you. In the meantime, for more information on the Searsmont Bicentennial and Bicentennial Week, go to the Community/Bicentennial page atwww.searsmont.com, or call the Town Office at 342-5411.
