Guilford Pre-Town Meeting Feb. 20

Broad Brook Grange will hold its annual Guilford Pre-Town Meeting on Thursday, February 20, 7:00 pm at the Grange hall. 

This is the only opportunity for voters to hear details of the articles which will be presented at the Town and School District Meetings, and to meet and discuss issues with the selectboard and school board all in one evening, in advance of Town Meeting.  

In addition, candidates for town and school board offices are urged to attend to introduce themselves to the voters.  State law prevents any “campaigning” by candidates at Town Meeting, when an Australian ballot is used, as in this instance.  So this is the only time before the vote for the public to meet and hear the candidates all at once.

Let's Fill The Shelves Weekend Rides

Come ride this weekend to support the Putney Foodshelf. This time of year all of the folks at the Putney Foodshelf can use our help as they try to make sure everyone is well provided for during the holiday season.  They will be upping their efforts over the next few weeks to see that no one in need.  On Sautrday 14th and Sunday 15th, Hot Wheelz Cycle Studio is hoping to fill the house, not only with riders, but with some great donations of food items as well.

The foodshelf is in need of a variety of non-perishable items, such as healthy canned goods.  A general rule of thumb is to try to donate only sutff that you would eat yourself and that isn't out of date.
