Selectman's Corner

January January 2016

From the Desk of the First Selectman



            The Town has the appearance of winter quietly resting along silent grasses immersed in dark afternoons. I sit here awaiting the biting cold weather that is just around the bend. Honestly I do not want it but the anticipation of it is such that I wish it would come and then leave again so that I can enjoy the bright beginnings of early spring!


The golfers have been squeezing in one last game and fisherman are still along and in the river scooping up the last of the salmon and trout hoping for that freeze that will allow for huts to be put up in the middle of the ponds for the sport of ice fishing. Just the thought of this sends cold shivers through me.


I remind you all that the Library, Senior Center and Historical Society Museum are inviting, warm places to come and visit. The laughter of neighbors and friends enjoying inside time together will delight you, please stop on by.


This is that time of year when the budget is being prepared for the next year; I have sharpened my pencil and will be pouring over every line item to achieve savings for us all. As the process moves forward I will be sending out all finalized information.


A good book and old movie will help you through the season. Enjoy a cup of hot chocolate overflowing with marshmallows as you sit back for that “long winter’s rest”.


As always thanks for your support!
