I hope everyone remembered to turn their clocks ahead an hour. 

My husband and I had a tragedy last Saturday when one of my dogs got sick Friday afternoon with what we thought was ingestion of something in the woods. By morning he was no better, so we rushed him to the vet and after many tests, it was determined that he died of heart failure. His name was Demetrious and he was only 12 1/2 years old and had been healthy just before he got sick. My oldest dog has cancer and we expected him to go first. If you have a pet, hug him or her and appreciate him or her every day.

Happy birthday in March to Linda Murray, Norma Galligan, Nathan and Monica Mofitt, Danny Galligan, Spencer McCormick, Daniel Stewart, Shelly Bodkin and Elizabeth Trainor. Happy anniversary to Bob and Jill Caruso.

The Easter service at the Sewall Memorial Congregational Church will be at 7 am on March 27th. Light refreshments will follow.

Mark your calendars for Monday, March 28th. That is when the town meeting and election will be held. Polls open at 12:30 and close at 7:00. The meeting will be at 7:00 pm. Those running for town officers are: First Selectman - Tommy Moholland, 2nd Selectman -  Jonathan Stanhope and Jesse Demmons, 3rd - Kevin Murray and Danny Merrifield; School committee Joseph Footer and Leah McLean; Road Commissioner - Earl Stanhope; and Town Clerk, Town Treasurer and Tax Collector - Cathy Footer. I hope we have good weather so there’s a  large turnout.

Sincere sympathy to the family and friends of Michael Williams who passed away.
