Oh, that was brutal, that cold, wasn’t it? I didn’t even get a frozen marsh picture, though. I had house issues to deal with. Kept me cooped up. But everything turned out okay in the end.
Apparently at least 40 people had burst pipes, as reported in the Selectboard meeting (see page 3). I feel for you. I had a close call myself, but I lucked out. This little shack is hanging in there.
Speaking of weather.
Acushnet is dealing with a nightmare on Main Street. Some brain trust cleared out all the trees and now there’s river down Main Street when it rains. The new owners of the project are promising to fix it. Here’s hoping….See page 12 for that.
The Millicent Library is 150 this year. Young Millicent would have been 130. The library has a pretty cool exhibit in the Rogers Room (see page 11), with a couple of pictures of Millie. The exhibit will be up for a bit, so you have time to wait for a good warm day.
We have a DaCunha’s Dispatch this week (see page 14). Remember Elizabeth? She wrote a lot of articles on what was happening at the high school during COVID. Now, she’ll pop in every now and then with an article of interest. This week is about getting girls interested in the science subjects, traditionally thought of as being only for the boys.
And…soup’s on! The Acushnet COA got cases and cases of soup to distribute for free to patrons of the Senior Center (see page 19). Pretty cool, huh?
Please be sure to let our advertisers know you saw their ads in the Neighb News. Without them, there would be no Neighb News.
Until next week then…
Glory to Ukraine!
