Well, the strange weather continues to plague us, but it was definitely a Godsend that the rain halted around 4:00 PM on Wed, allowing the Strawberry Festival to go forward with a good crowd. Thanks to everyone for their hard work & to those who faithfully support this wonderful community event!
As most folks undoubtedly know by now, the money for the Sheriff was reinstated in the town budget by a large majority. It was nice that folks were courteous to one another & there were several light moments during the meeting. It was also encouraging to note that the Selectmen were receptive to the ideas presented, especially the idea to provide more precise details in the contract so that the needs of the town are adequately met.
A fun event will take place at Bethany Birches Camp on Sunday 7/7. First of all there will be the church service led by camp staff at 10:00 AM – complete with energetic singing & sharing of faith journeys. A chicken BBQ will follow that will fill your belly, while the spectacular view will nourish you as well! If you are so inclined, bring your bathing suit & take a dip in the pond. I understand that the camp season is going well, but for further info, please go to http://bethanybirches.org/2013/06/newsletter-2013-summer-programs-events/#sthash.5B7wo3nt.dpuf.
Happy Birthday to Janine Norman on 7/3 – a day before Calvin Coolidge! Don’t forget the BBQ offered at Wilder House following the march to the cemetery!
