The March issue opens with a preview of the town warrant, excerpted, and an announcement for the March 1 Pre-Town Meeting to go over all it contains. We will vote (for 3 proposed Planning Board changes, the candidates for public office, the school district budget) at Town Hall March 8, and hold Town Meeting March 12 to vote on the rest among fellow townspeople. We can meet the candidates March 5 at the DPL.

We welcome a new policeman, hear that the Energy Committee is meeting, and local ads call for several summertime recreational positions to be filled.

We have the School Board report, are reminded to turn our clocks forward for DST, and the new Chamber has a survey for us to fill out.

The Trustees of Trust Funds offer annual scholarships, the local nonprofits seeking funding for human services display their associated costs, and our town honors five people who have died in the last month.
