The New Year is here and with it the January Advocate. All the Nordic Trails at Dublin School are groomed and open to the public, upon signup. The Library is prepared for MLK Jr Day, they won an award, and begin their own email newsletter. Its trustees are looking for responses to a survey.

Our Town Clerk has posted the positions open in town, town employees now will get Juneteenth off, and townspeople are making a difference in ending hunger for our local schoolchildren.

The Planning Board details its proposed changes in amendments for town vote in March, and the elementary schoolchildren enjoy sledding after a snow. The monthly community supper is still take-out but all are invited.

Our School Board Rep keeps us informed, and one small New Year’s resolution sounds good for all. Our newest staffer has gone over the process used by our Town’s Budget Committee, and the next town south invites us to celebrate MLK Jr. Day, with a keynote, a documentary, and a speaker.

We have a rundown of the 911 Emergency Communications team, based in Keene, and run by a Dubliner, and we take a look at the author 20 years after he wrote our town history.

Forest fires out west have repeatedly received the assist of one of our own firefighters, Cornucopia Project is teaching children how to grow and enjoy the fruits of their labors, the Local Rotary made Christmas a happy time for more than 200 local children, and two Chambers of Commerce merged and plan an office in Peterborough.

The DubHub publishes its busy lineup of community activities, we keep tabs on the ongoing struggles with COVID, riders still need rides to essential destinations, and learn how court appointed special advocates help children needing representation.

The Great Gray Owl is covered by Tom this month. Stay tuned to winter storm warnings, and be sure to use our advertisers!

Happy New Year to all.
