Thank you to everyone who helped with the Summer’s End picnic and to everyone who came.  The Halsey Shedd RFD served up some great burgers and hotdogs, and the table was loaded with wonderful contributions from the community.  We hope you all had a great time -- we certainly did.  We’ve already heard great suggestions on things to add for next year.

Thank you to the dedicated, intrepid volunteers who came to help paint the Library this Saturday!  Public Works will be continuing to work on the building and finishing up the painting over the next couple of weeks, but the change in the appearance in the building is already significant.  Thank you!
