The month of June passed into history, as did the Town of Hanover 2011 tax year. Hanover taxpayers apparently not desiring to “get into the book” gave a great effort to make their payments. The taxpayers that did not pay in time for the end of the month have only a few days to pay up or face additional interest charges.
Hanover Deputy Clerk Kelly Harrington has returned home following a motor trip to Montana with Keith, Victoria, and Cory with Kelly’s mother Suzi. Kelly, who is very dedicated to her work, flew home while the rest of the family leisurely drove home.
Brian Worcester while going to work in the woods saw two deer and two moose within a few hundred yards of each other. Sara and the twins, Shawnee and Makala, visited Brian over the weekend.
You may remember two years ago when Daren and Brad Worcester hiked the entire Appalachian Trail in Maine. This year Daren has been working toward hiking the Appalachian Trail in New Hampshire. He left for the last portion of the trip last week and will conclude the journey at Carlo Col at the Maine/New Hampshire state line.
Also active in the area is the New Balance Hiking Club consisting of Jenny (Worcester) Tirrell and others from the New Balance Company. Recently they climbed to Table Rock. Watch for hikes by Peak-A-Week from the Rumford area that actively climb hills most every Wednesday.
Some Hanover residents have reported telephone interruption on the Fair Point system. The company is working to repair the problem.
