Kudos to Town of Newfane Administration & Volunteers

I had an opportunity to read Newfane's 154th Annual Town Report this weekend and am moved to give a shout-out to all the paid and volunteer folks who absorbed the huge amount of time associated with the aftermath of Storm Irene.

Extraordinary effort!

Thanks for all you do!

Village Tower Near Newfane?

Did you see the article in the Reformer that VTEL has identified an alternative site for a tower near the Village of Newfane?  What do you think is going to happen next?  NIMBY action or is this going to happen?

Author Elizabeth G. Macalaster will be presenting her new release In Disguise! at the Putney Public Library Thursday, March 7, 2013, 7-8:30 pm.

Spanning more than 300 years and 10 countries, In Disguise! tells the stories of history’s most daring women, from Harriet Tubman, who freed hundreds of slaves during the Civil War, to dancer Eva Wu, who hid secret messages in her hair to aid the Chinese Revolution.

Guilford Pre-Town Meeting

It's in the Calemdar already, but I got the feeling iBrattleboro wants Guilford news & this seems to be it for this week. (I do see your note in the guidelines saying events should go in the Calendar, maybe not here, so am not sure you want this here, but anyway!!!)

This Thursday at Broad Brook Grange at 7 pm is the annual pre-town meeting.  First the Selectboard, then School board, will outline the items they're going to be bringing to the voters on Mar 5.  This is good venue to ask questions in an informal setting.  Candidates for Town & School Board offices are also asked to attend to introduce themselves. Guilford doesn't get as fancy as having a candidates' forum, so this is it.
