The May Advocate is brief this month, owing to unforeseen staffing limitations. We intend to return in full form in June, with town, community and school news, personal milestones and cultural events. Please keep your submissions coming, especially for high school, college and advanced degree graduations!

The Advocate opens with news about Dublin’s 2022 Memorial Day Festivities, which include a Parade at 11:15 am, and a dedication of the Korean and Vietnam War plaques at 1 pm.

Our Town Clerk reminds residents to register/renew licenses for your dogs by May 1.

Library Director Rachael Lovett invites all to the annual Spring Book Sale on May 14. Donations of books in good condition are requested by May 7.

Dublin Women’s Club will hold the business portion of its Annual Meeting virtually, with voting to be completed by April 30. Tickets are on sale for the Annual Dinner at Dublin Taproom and Eatery on May 12.

Our School District representative explains the importance of community members attending the third in a series of ConVal Community Forums on May 12.

We can’t forget to celebrate spring (even though it’s been unseasonably cold!) with Lisa Foote’s article on local wildflower trails that are abloom in May, and the Harris Center’s encouragement to participate in “No Mow May.”

The DubHub has a number of special events in May, so be sure to check out page 3 for descriptions, dates and times. Highlighted is “Art from the Heart: Art Exhibition to Benefit the People of Ukraine,” and the new Dublin Parents Group “Munchkin and Me” play group.

Finally, our Town Administrator introduces our new Summer Playground Director, Andrew Fletcher, who is looking forward to a full summer of fun from June 27 through August 5. Details about Summer Playground are included.

The May calendar lists locations, dates and times for meetings and events we know about – we rely on you to keep us in the know.

Please tell our advertisers you saw them here!
