Weathersfield News November 25, 2015
Last Tuesday I attended a band concert at Woodstock Middle and High School in honor of Chuck and Harriet. The Yoh Theatre was packed with friends and supporters of the Worrells.
I freelance for the Vermont Standard and attended their Correspondents Holiday Luncheon at the Public House in Quechee. The food was delicious.
Friday night, I made my way to Pomfret for a gallery opening of "Small Works" at the ArtisTree. You should check it out his holiday season. Lot of cute gifts made by local artisans.
Right next door in the big barn, I took in the Local Songwriters Spotlight concert featuring Sensible Shoes and Hammer and Feather.
Saturday night, I drove to Hartland to see a one man show-The Fiddler, Patrick Ross. What a talented musician. His daughter Ophelia is quite talented too.

I finished off my weekend but attending a two man play in White River Junction. North Country Community Theatre presented "A Walk in the Woods" at the Briggs Opera House. It was really powerful and extremely entertaining.
Now on to the Town news...
Select Board News: The Select Board is reviewing the town budget for FY2017. At their meeting on Nov. 16 they reviewed the Police Department budget with Chief Daniels. The Chief is asking to replace the truck that has 118,000 miles, replacement cost could be around $38,000. The Board also reviewed the Capital Replacement Plan and Long Term Debt Schedule and discussed possible options. Town Manager Jim Mullen recommended moving replacement of WWVFD Engine 3 out to 2018 because the results of the fire services evaluation won’t be available until the 2017 Town Meeting. Fire Chief Josh Dauphin argued against it. The matter will be discussed at the next Fire Commission meeting with recommendations to follow. Electronic Waste Collection at the Transfer Station- Town Manager Mullen will report on a conference call taking place with area municipal e-waste providers; he will report the suggestions to the Board at the next meeting.
