Hello Waldo!

The Carolina wrens are still all over our feeders and it has me wondering what other new birds we might see as spring continues to tiptoe toward us. I am ready for a true thaw and it looks like we might just get it later in the coming week. Oh to really see the ground!

It’s the time of year to start thinking about town business. The Waldo town meeting is on Saturday, March 27, this year, starting at 9 a.m. in person in the Community Building behind the Town Office. There will not be the early first hour for mingling and chatting as there normally is, because of COVID-19 precautions.

The meeting can fit 50 people socially distanced (if more people than that arrive they will make sure everyone is safely able to participate). Anyone attending must wear a mask. Kathy Littlefield said that if you come early and take your seat properly that they will always answer questions (this is a good alternative if you were planning on bringing any questions or concerns during the first hour, before the meeting has formally begun).

The Town Report is currently being finalized. It will be available at Town Hall and at Weaver’s. Kathy will also gladly deliver one to you if you’re unable to get out and grab one on your own (you can call her if that’s the case).

If the weather is very bad, the meeting will be postponed until the following Monday, March 29, at 6 p.m.

If anyone is interested in running for selectman, you should attend the meeting as that’s where elections take place. Lots of things have worked well in Waldo for a long time, but a fresh voice and perspective can be a welcome change sometimes, too. Thanks to our current selectmen for all they have done and continue to do for our town.
