      More Standard Mine Pictures

      Albert Emerson took a bunch. You'll find them all in the Orange Scenes photo album.


      Our Popular Mountain

      Dorothy Heinrichs took this photo a little after 6 a.m. this morning. A couple of families were already on the summit and ledges. While we don't have statistics from the state, it seems as though Mt. Cardigan is getting more people than ever before. Who can blame them?

      As always, we put this picture in the Photo Albums and welcome more from you.


      Fast Cleanup

      Thanks to the volunteers who picked up the trash at the Standard Mine on Tug Mountain. Dorothy Heinrichs took the first picture of Pauline and Albert Emerson. Albert took the one of the whole crew. We've added these pictures to the photo albums.

      The cleanup took just about an hour, thanks to the large number of volunteers. 


      Trash Pickup

      Sorry about the barrage of posts. Just a reminder that trash pickup is tomorrow, June 4.

      Don't forget the cleanup of the Standard Mine at Tug Mountain, tomorrow at 8 a.m. Pizza afterward in the Town House. 

      You can find the latest Select Board minutes--and those from other meetings dating back four years--here. Not many people care to, but it seems useful to offer a record for anyone who wants.

      Sandi wrote for all of us in offering condolences for Barbara Smith, who passed away recently: 

      "Among many things, Barbara was active in the election process and the annual Christmas parties and simply a good neighbor and friend of Orange. Barbara had beautiful flower and vegetable gardens of which some of the bounty could be enjoyed at the Canaan Farmers' Market." Here's a picture of Barbara at the town Christmas party, from the website's photo albums.
