I think a chipmunk family is living in our outdoor brick fireplace because they seem to be hopping out and scampering along the deck. Our cat doesn’t go out very often, but when I am out there doing exercises and trying to soak up some Vit D, she occasionally scoots out the door. Then she tries to follow their trail. Snow kept her from leaving the deck, but now it has finally melted and she is ready to explore, but so far she has not encountered them!
The Reading Group laughed as we talked at length about the escapades of the senior citizens from The Little Old Lady Who Broke All the Rules. Oh, to be so feisty at 80! The next book, to be discussed on 5/24 will be The Story of Land and Sea by Katy Simpson Smith. Filled with intrigue, including a kidnapping, it is set in a small coastal town in North Carolina during the waning years of the American Revolution. Copies on loan from the Killington Library are available at the Town Office if you are interested.
I have a few May birthdays, but would love to include more – Amber Bergey (5/7), Marcia Bender (5/10), BettyAnn Hayward (5/15). Best wishes!
There were two property transfers recorded this week: 2331 Route 100 for $157,400.00 – Daniel Hreachmack and Mary Kelleher to Daniel and Hannah Bernard. On Chapman Road for $16,000.00 land from Richard Ambrosi to John Genova, Jr.
Also, the Planning Commission will be meeting at 7:00 PM at town hall on Tuesday, May 1, to continue work on the Town Plan. Input encouraged!
