Hanover June 24
The Hanover Special Town Meeting on June 15 took place at the Hanover Town House starting at 5:30 p.m. Jim Barker was elected moderator with six voters in attendance. Quick work was made of the two articles pertaining to the recycling contract with Oxford County Solid Waste and Recycle Corporation. With voter approval for the two articles presented, the meeting was over in 10 minutes.
Following the Special Town Meeting the Hanover Select Persons proceeded with their monthly meeting. After hearing reports and discussion of local issues the meeting adjourned.
Two high school girls with close ties to Hanover and Howard Pond accomplished something pretty special this past week. Sarah Moir, a junior at Gorham High School and daughter of Jim and Tracey Moir, and Ally Morrison, a sophomore at North Yarmouth Academy and granddaughter of Frank and Marie Morrison, both played in the finals of the High School Girls’ State Championships (Class A and C) tennis matches held at Colby College in Waterville. Now that the net is up perhaps the town tennis court will see some pretty talented players this summer.
Receiving congratulations upon high school graduation are: Coleman Gross from Telstar High School, son of William and Barbara Gross; Matthew Duka from Mountain Valley High School, son of Richard and Suzanne Duka; and Peter Rodway, Gould Academy, son of Peter and Maura Rodway.
Remember to stop by the Town Office or the library to name the scarecrow. Poor thing stands at Gould’s Corner without a name. The person who has the chosen name will win a special prize.
On Wednesday, June 16, two youngsters were job shadowing at the Hanover Town Office. Deputy Clerk Kelly Harrington showed Milo and Katie Chase the ins and outs of our small town office and they got to see just how busy it sometimes is.
Patrick Ray has now returned to Odessa, Texas, after staying with his grandfather Jim Ray. While here some local folks got a special opportunity to sit in on a musical jam session with Patrick. He plays and sings Texas country music and is very accomplished on the guitar and mandolin. Last weekend Jim Ray went to New York to meet his wife, Judy, and others from their family. They attended a relative’s memorial service.
Ken and Geneva Goddard have returned to Hanover for the summer. Ken had been ill much of the winter but now says he is feeling better.
Jeff Watts has taken up a new sport, jogging on the hottest days. Be careful, Jeff!
