    Cardigan State Forest Gets an Addition

    Sandi Pierson, secretary to the Board of Selectmen, sent us this from the minutes of a recent meeting:

    Mount Cardigan State Forest:  Dorothy stated that Norco has conveyed 257 acres (Map 4, Lot 15) to the State of New Hampshire and this land is now part of Mount Cardigan State Forest. This acreage is on the
    summit and eastern slope of Hoyt Mountain and includes the Hoyt mine. It is contiguous with state forest land having frontage on Burnt Hill Road.


    School Board Meeting

    Don't forget the Mascoma Board meeting this Thursday, October 27. Sandi Pierson tells us that the meeting starts at 6 at the Orange Town House.  The non-public session is ninth on the agenda--not 5:30 as we previously reported.  (The agenda is posted on the bulletin board outside the Town House.)


    Sorry About the Trash

    We screwed up. Our apologies to those who saw there was no trash pickup on the calendar. Turns out there was. We'll try to communicate better with the Town on pickups in the future.


    Recycling Report

    According to the latest figures, Orange residents recycled 11.84 tons of trash between May 6--when Zero Sort recycling began--through September 23.  That's a huge savings in landfill space, and a sigificant savings to us taxpayers.
