Weathersfield, Vt.


I hope to see you at the "Summer Evening with Friends and Neighbors" this Saturday evening, July 15 at the Center Church. It's always a great night of music, desserts and entertainment. The Weathersfield Proctor Library Fundraising Committee are our hosts and they always put on a fun event. For details see below. And in case you haven't had your fill of fireworks, the Crown Point Country Club will be hosting their 4th's fireworks on Saturday July 29 (it was postponed because the of the nasty weather on July 1.) Gates open at 6 p.m. and it's $15 a carload, so carpool and save some dough!




Friday night I went tot he Skinny Pancake in Hanover, NH to see Say Darling. it was a very cool place to see music. Intimate, good beer, good food and easy parking.

Now on to News You Can Use
Weathersfield town and select board news: The town has installed a new compactor at the Transfer Station and will now be accepting single sort recycling. As of July 5, paper, cardboard, tin cans and plastics (1-7) will be all placed in the new compactor. Glass will be placed in a separate container, and they are urging everyone to separate out 5 cent redeemable bottles to help keep the transfer stations costs down and to help our local non-profits (money collect is given out to local charities upon request). A new traffic pattern has been established at the station too, so take care when driving around there. More information about this new compactor, the select board and the town, or other questions contact Town Manager, Ed Morris, at 802-674-2626 or townmanager@weathersfield.org.
