    New Town Sign

    Bob and Sharon Proulx noticed that  the Orange sign needed repair and new paint, they took it to have a cost estimate done.  The sign maker said that it would be better to make a new sign, since it would cost almost the same as to repair the old one.

    Bob went to the Select Board and asked if the Town would approve the money for a new sign.  The Board did just that, and Bob had the sign made.  Check it out on Cardigan Mountain Road.  Be the first to take a picture and send it to us!

    Thank you Bob and Sharon. You always have the benefit of the Town at heart.


    Absentee Ballots

    Pat White reminds us to get your request in to her if you need an absentee ballot for Voting Day, January 10.   The letter must state that you will not be in town on primary day and would like an absentee ballot; specify which party.  Include your your name, mailing address to send the ballot.   

    Bring the request to Pat's office in the Town House, or you can hand-deliver or mail it to her home.  In return, she can hand deliver your ballot to you. But she's not permitted to give you any other person's ballot--not even your spouse's.  Get your ballot back to the Town House by 5 p.m. January 10 in order to be counted.


    The Price of Education

    Our Town's share of the Mascoma School District's fiscal year 2011-2012 payment totals $426,653.00. All the more reason to have your say at the School Board Meetings.  

    The deadline for petitioned warrant articles is 5 p.m. Tuesday, January 10, at the SAU office.
    The School District Budget Committee is holding a public hearing to discuss the next fiscal year's budget at 6 p.m. Wednesday, January 11, in the Mascoma High School library.  (See the Orange Calendar for all town events.)  That's followed by a School Board bond hearing five days later: 6 p.m. Monday, January 16, same place. (A snow date has been set for the following day at the Canaan Elementary School.)
    The School Board will hold its first deliberative session 9 a.m. Saturday, February 4, at the Indian River School.

    Wear Orange!

    Just a reminder that deer rifle season begins next week, Wednesday, November 8.  To follow hunting seasons, see the Orange calendar.
