The June issue spotlights our Graduates, from high schools, college, and two Master’s degrees. Hearty congratulations to them all.

The speaker for the annual FDPL meeting is Willem Lange, host of Windows to the Wild. It’s time again for Avitar to reassess our homes, so be on the lookout for its well-marked vehicles. Our Chief of Police explains why there will be much more truck traffic on Route 101 this summer, and 32 women attended the DWC dinner at DelRossi’s.

In addition to welcoming the last month of school before summer at DCS, we can rejoice in the students’ participation in a school-wide play and planning the gardens with Cornucopia. Before we know it, Playground will be in full swing.

DCA students performed in an adapted play about Rudyard Kipling, we thank the Rotary for cleaning up roadside litter once again, and look forward to the Lake Hosts making sure no invasives find their way in to our pristine lake.

With summer comes the arts: Walden School music is ongoing at DS, the Peterborough Players begins its theater season, Electric Earth starts its Music for the Mountain series, we bid adieu to a very interesting couple who dance the sun up each MayDay, and don’t miss the Nelson Town Band on a town common near you.

Read up on business psychology, a Vintage weekend, SWRPC surveys, and a bid put out about the wireless situation in town. Volunteer opportunities to help our fellow neighbors abound at MaH, the River Center, RSVP, and CVTC. Then there are the timely updates from our School Board Rep, DCP, DCS, DPL, FDPL, the Hub, and some new art classes.

Last and never least, our birding enthusiasts visited the top of the world from a birder’s perspective.
