We’ve got a bunch of great stuff coming up this weekend.
On Saturday, the Fairhaven Office of Tourism is holding its annual Harvest Fun Day (see page 12).
This is a great event to celebrate autumn. The end of summer…alas, is here. At least we can celebrate the harvest, the fruits of all that hot summer sun.
Then on Sunday, the Fire Department is holding its annual open house (see page 5). We’re hoping and hoping that Hurricane Matthew keeps heading east as predicted.
If the weather cooperates, the event will include fire demonstrations. Cross your fingers, and see you there.
Okay, so summer is over (sniff, sniff), the weather is cooling off, and that means…..HALLOWEEN! Yup, it’s that time of year again.
I need your Halloween yards.
Do NOT assume that I have your name and address from previous years. I need to know that you are, indeed, decorating this year.
Please email to NeighbNews@comcast.net, and tell me your address, if you have a decorated yard or a full-fledge walk-through haunt, and if you have any special hours for viewing.
The deadline to be included in the Halloween Trail issue is 10/14. We’ll be publishing the Halloween Trail on 10/20 to give people time to plan on going. The 10/27 issue will be cutting it too close, I think.
So…send in those pictures!
It’s time for the REAL Halloweentown to come alive!
We have some meeting coverage for you this week. The Selectboard held a goal setting meeting (page 22) to talk about…well, goals (can you tell it’s getting late?).
The regular Selectboard meeting was held this week, too (page 4). The board approved the idea of replacing the cupola on the Oxford School building.
Then, somewhere in the conversation, Mr. Rees told the board that they can’t find the deed to the school. They had to hire an “expert” to find it.
Aiyiyi Lucy!!!! We’ve been working on the sale of this building for…how many years? And no one checked out the deed? Oh…I just deleted a whole bunch of foolishess about the deed. Use your imagination.
Until next week then…see ya,
