Also, please review the cemetery ordinance before having any stone placed.

Swag needed! We’re running low on “welcome packets” for new residents at the Town Office. If you have a business and would like to let our new citizens know about you, we are accepting business cards, coupons, menus, token gifts (e.g., pens, key chains). We also include maps, recycling info, town contacts, a complimentary trash sticker, etc. Whenever we meet a new neighbor, they are delighted to receive these!
