I apologize. When we wrote the story about that big Howard Pond Road rock we intended it for fun. Apparently some others didn’t see it that way. So, I am sorry if some folks got upset.
June will be a very busy month politically for Hanover voters. It starts off on June 2 (Wednesday) at 6 p.m. with a Planning Board meeting. The next day, June 3 (Thursday), the RSU 10 Mountain Foothills District Annual Budget Meeting will take place at 6 p.m. at Dirigo High School in the Stu-dent Community Center at 145 Weld Street, Dixfield.
June 8 will be the State Referendum and Primary Election starting at 10 a.m. until 8 p.m. at the Hanover Town Office. Also to be voted on will be authorization to eliminate the elected position of County Treasurer to be replaced by an appointed treasurer. Voters will be asked to ratify the RSU 10 budget as adopted at the June 3 budget meeting.
Tuesday, June 15, there will be a Special Town Meeting at the Hanover Town House at 12 Howard Pond Road starting at 5:30 p.m. Voters will be asked to approve an agreement with Oxford County Solid Waste Corporation plus Hanover’s share of operating funds for one year. Following the Spe-cial Town Meeting at 6 p.m. the Hanover Board of Selectpersons will have their regular monthly meeting.
A new wood commercial-grade screen door has been installed at Gardner Roberts Memorial Li-brary. Recently insulation was added to the building and soon a stove will be added to extend the use of the building in the fall and the spring. Some of the funding came from a Stephen and Tabitha King Foundation grant.
Librarian Peg Susbury has announced new books recently acquired by Gardner Roberts Memo-rial Library. Adult Books: “The Walk” by Richard Paul Evans; and “Friday Night Knitting Club: Knit the Season” by Kate Jacobs. Children’s Books: “Antlers Forever” by Frances Bloxam; “Moose, of Course” by Lynne Plourde and “Loons — Diving Birds of the North” by Donna Love. The chil-dren’s books are picture books.
Have you noticed the new color of the former Knights of Pythias Hall on Main Street in Hanover? Although we do not dare name the color everyone says it looks nice. Debbi and Marlan (Duke) Du-pont purchased the building from the Pythians and operate “Just a Hobby Antiques” at that loca-tion. Another house at the intersection of the Howard Pond Road and Mill Hill Road also seems to be undertaking a dramatic color change.
Get well wishes go to Janice Bennett from Milton Twp. who was taken ill and hospitalized while working at a charity golf tournament for the Knights of Pythias at Grindstone Neck Golf Course in Winter Harbor. Others attending from this area were Danny and Michael Bennett and Donna and Clem Worcester.
