Town News

This past Saturday Andy, Nolan and I enjoyed a nice lunch at the Pine Tree Store. Nolan loves the steak and cheese while Andy and I enjoyed the fried chicken sandwich with lettuce and tomato and ketchup. Always great to catch up on local town business and how people are facing the winter months. We are fortunate to have such great store owners who make the commitment to be open daily from 7 to 6 to provide good services. Thanks Brenda and Les!!

A note from Kathi Milicia: Hi Dave, Hope you’re feeling well.  The GLS Fire Department will bring Santa Claus to town on Thursday, December 21 at 6 p.m.  Santa will be riding the fire truck to the homes of all town children and single seniors to deliver holiday cheer (and presents!) We look forward to seeing everyone and hope all will be home to greet Santa and receive their gifts. 

New from Gary Santerre: Dave, just wanted to share some department news. I have been going to the Washington County Fire Fighter Association meetings to see how fire departments are working together and to see how this Association that’s funded by the county helps the fire departments. Every year different departments ask for funds to help their departments purchase equipment. I am proud to let you know our department was approved $4,500 for four sets of cold water rescue gear and all the equipment to go with it. GLS Fireman’s Association also is using some of the funds raised  to purchase additional equipment to go with the rescue gear. We will be training with this new equipment in January and will be asking IFW to train us on their protocol.
