The red maple blossoms droop over the driveway and when the evening sun hits them they glow a pinkish red color. The daffodils and tulips are likely to open up in the next few days, and yet two days ago our weather station recorded an overnight low of 23 degrees. It’s a headache managing seedling trays right now! I’m slowly cleaning up the field, having been too burnt out to do it last fall. It is good to work outside again; I feel a bit like the rosy maple blossoms.

There is a potluck supper and game night (following the supper) scheduled for 4 p.m. on Saturday, April 30, at the Town Hall/Community Building on 629 Waldo Station Road. Please bring a dish to share and a board game. This is a benefit for Sue MacKay.

The town approved a six-month moratorium on solar installations larger than .075 MW (equivalent to 75 KW) so that the Planning Board could draft an ordinance for the review of larger installations. The proposed system for which the land was cleared on Wagner Hill on East Waldo Road would have been 160 KW (the application for that system has since been withdrawn).

I am looking into getting more information about the recently approved changes to the town clerk role and will share what I learn next week.

Spring Cleanup day is Sunday, May 15, from 8 a.m. to 2 p.m.; I’m glad it’s not on Mother’s Day this year!
