News You Can Use
Select Board-met on Jun 1, meeting will be reported on here next week.
Fire Commission-met May 26. Chief
Darrin Spaulding of
Ascutney Volunteer Fire Association reported that the hydrants on Gulf Road, the Bow,
and Skyline Drive
are not working and need repairs. Mrs. Lynn Esty said there is money in the
budget for dry hydrant repairs. Mr. Spaulding also reported that there is a
pond on Bowen Hill Road
for which the homeowner has authorized installation of a dry hydrant but that
it needs to be dredged. The commission is looking into grant funds available
for the work.
Mrs. Dauphin, West Weathersfield Fire Department, expressed concern that Engine 2 had broken down recently and it took a few days for the Town Highway Department to look at it. She wanted to know if there was an alternative for repairs when the highway department is not available. Mrs. Esty said she would look into it.

Saturday, June 20, 9:30 a.m. Cathedral
Rocks This hike is partly on wood road and partly on a route that follows
blazes through the woods. Its length has not been calculated, but it descends
to Weathersfield Parks Reservoir Road
from Stokes Road,
which is just short of Wellwood Orchard. The difficulty will be greater than a
walk down the road. We will spot cars at the end of the hike for a ride back up
to Stokes. There is a nice view near the top of the descent. The rocks are very
big. Two hours?
Valley Court Diversion Programs-Volunteer are needed in Weathersfield/Springfield areas to work with low level offenders in the community. The organization embraces the principles of restorative justice. As a volunteer, you will hear participant's stories and help create a restorative contract with them. The group meets once a month at the Springfield Police Department, your commitment will require about 3 hours a month. Training is provided.
