The May Advocate opens with a tribute to the pollinators, and details how we can help them multiply by using native plants to sustain a biodiverse environment right in our own backyards. Then, let’s not forget about Town Meeting, broadside.

The Library is all abuzz with May 22’s Garden Fest, turning our village into a hub of activity, with books and seed sales, lunch and music, fun and games.

Memorial Day is coming up, and we will honor it in part in person, but wholeheartedly. The Women’s Club is still discussing its summer plans, Rotary is planning a roadside cleanup day, and our police department makes two requests: honor the speed limit to share the road with people on foot or bikes, and leash our dogs at all times.

DCA students won big in a Christian school competition, and the DHS hosts a storyteller, announces a new president, and anticipates its summer celebration for 101 years in operation.

Our schoolchildren are thriving, baseball season is on — its field redone, and we have lost two Dubliners who meant a great deal to many.

Our School Board rep explains the situation, many attended the Rotary Park presentation, and Consolidated Communications is offering a sale on broadband fees!

Congratulations to our 2021 college grads, stay tuned for news on the Dublin trailhead access, and follow a teacher’s learning curve. There’s an effort afoot to replace the DPL’s old catch basins, one family shares their homeschooling journey, and a private school shows views of its outdoor classrooms that were in use all winter!

A local nurse practitioner gives one-on-one attention to people seeking a healthier lifestyle, we have two new staffers in the highway department, expect news about Summer Playground next month, and witness gifts from our church supper to the local vax clinic.

NextDoor is alive and well among Dubliners, and we hear from its host. Walk for Hunger is in its fifth year, and we honor the memory of “a playful spirit.” We can read about preventing violence in the home, May events at the Hub, donating food to hungry children, and attending one of several churches here in town.

How broadband came to town has roots that go back several years, the local homeless shelter has a wish list, and here’s how to dispose of hazardous waste in Keene.

The Humanities council hosts Jo Harjo — U.S. Poet Laureate, Americorps takes a stand, and we offer an inspiring word about volunteerism from our new President of the United States, almost 100 days in office.

The local hospital is reaching out to improve community health, Tom focuses on Motus, which is tracking migrant birds and butterflies, and we have some Dubliners in the News.

Remember our loyal advertisers for services in and around your home, and stay well.
