Wednesday we met on the Common and visited with Community Helpers. The first stop was the Town Hall. Leslie, the Town Clerk, showed us her huge book of birth certificates and the town seal. Becky, the Town Administrator, set up a mock Select Board meeting. Three children sat on the Select Board. The rest of the group attended Town Meeting. The pretend scenario was whether or not to build a bridge over a destroyed road. The majority voted in favor of the bridge! The next stop was the Spears Library. Maryanne read to the group. After a quick snack we visited the Post Office. Marie, gave us a tour, pointing out the elegant, antique mail boxes. The final stop was behind the Town Hall. Chief Tibbits demonstrated how he put on, and used all of his protective gear. The highlight of the morning was climbing in and out of the fire engine!
