During the Selectmen meeting for August 21st at 7pm, Selectmen will meet with Salmons Incorporated and lawyers from Rudman Winchell. The plan for Salmons Inc. as far as we know is to reopen the Butterworth Quarry. Just to be clear this is not about (the fish) salmon farming. Salmons just happens to be the last name for Jim Salmons of Salmons Incorporated. Planning Board will be in attendance. Please contact the Town Office if you wish to attend 567-3661. This is so we may know how many people to accommodate.

August 25th there will be a cemetery marker dedication for Joshua Jewett Harriman, an original proprietor of Prospect who served in the Revolutionary War. The event will take place at the Ferry Cemetery on Shore Road in Prospect at 2pm. The military honors will be performed by the American Legion. The dedication is open to the public.

On September 15th from 11am-2pm at the Marsh School Museum there will be a Quilt Show hosted by Sharon Sneed. Both new and antique quilts will be on display and Sharon will be speaking about technique and answer general quilting questions. For a sneak peek at Sharon’s work you can stop by the Town Office during regular business hours and we will be happy to take out the various ones she has made for us!
