Shoreham news for Feb. 24
SHOREHAM — The future, the present and the past walked into a bar. Things got a little tense.
The floor restoration project at the Congregational Church is one step closer to completion. The pine boards (donated by Ed C. James) are sitting in the Fellowship Hall “acclimating” to the environment. The folks are anticipating a beautiful floor in just a few more weeks.
If you know of someone unable to leave their home this winter who would appreciate a Tea and Cookie visit from the parishioners of St. Genevieve’s church, please contact Kathleen Brisson at 897-5625.
Dog licenses are available at the Town Clerk’s office. Just stop by the office during normal business hours Monday through Thursday.
