At 1 p.m. there will be family snowshoe and cross-country skiing at Willard’s Woods (off of East River Road between the mill and Truchon bridge). Parking is very limited, so please carpool, drop off or park and walk from the mill.

There will also be an ongoing snow sculpture contest. Please submit your sculpture photos to Christie at [email protected] and they will be shared as part of the Variety Show.

FROM THE TOWN

There will be no in-person town meeting this year. All voting will be by Australian ballot on Tuesday, March 1, at Burnham Hall. Polls will be open from 7 a.m. to 7 p.m. Ballots will not be automatically mailed to every voter like was done for the General Election.  An informational hearing will be held remotely via Zoom on Monday, Feb. 28, from 6 to 8 p.m.

Residents are encouraged to vote absentee, for the safety of our community and poll workers during the pandemic. Please request your ballots early so we have time to mail them and for you to get them back to us.

Voted ballots may be returned via U.S. mail, deposited in the secure drop box outside the town office, or brought to the polling place on Election Day. All voted ballots must be received by the close of polls at 7 p.m. on March 1 in order to be counted. Be sure to read and follow all instructions when voting absentee, or your vote may not count!

If you prefer to vote at the polls on Election Day, please wear a mask and bring your own black or blue pen when you come. We ask voters to maintain six feet of distance from people at the polling place, and do not come to the polling place if you are ill or caring for someone with COVID-19. Instead, call the Town Clerk for assistance.

Until next time … Mindset Is Everything. Patience Is The Key That Connects Efforts To Success. Every Accomplishment Starts With The Decision To Try.
