      Bring Dessert

      Sandi sent a few notices worth sharing:
      If you are coming to coyote presentation this Sunday at 6:30, please consider adding to the dessert table. We'll eat from 6:30 to 7, when the presentation begins. A table will be available if you have any natural artifacts you would like to display that evening. 
      A tentative date of May 6 has been set for a bit of green-up day in Orange. There have been some reports of roadside winter trash disposal that we need to take care of. Also on that day, would like a few hearty souls to consider helping to give the town house yard a good raking. More details to follow. Perhaps ending the day with a ice cream social will entice you!!
      A note has been received from Martha Jaques, mother of Steve Jaques who recently died. If you've climbed Cardigan, you probably met Steve keeping a watchful eye out from the tower for any signs of fires.
      Martha writes, "He loved living in New Hampshire and the job in the tower. He talked many times about the wonderful and interesting people while working in the tower. God bless all of you."
      And here are the latest Select Board minutes.
