Montville Town News

My apologies for being off last week. We were pretty lucky in the fact we only were with out power for a day and a half. It came back on at 12 midnight on Christmas Eve! The big guy in red must have been flipping switches. We played monopoly, parcheesi and chess; did some sledding, and ate some good food. My sister and her family came up from Florida to spend some time in the snow with us. They love visiting us! It is such a different experience from what they are use to. Hats off to the line workers for working so diligently to get the power restored as well as the tree cutting crews for all their help.

Liberty Library News

Her photographs are stunning. Come take a look!
