The annual Hanover Volunteer Day was scheduled for May 11, last Saturday. Do you remember what happened that day? We woke up to heavy rain pouring from the sky and it rained just about all day, letting up late in the day. Very little work was accomplished. Chairman of the Board of Select Persons, Brenda Gross, said there are no plans to reschedule the event. Among those who braved the weather were Bob and Peggy Susbury, Frank Morrison, and Clem Worcester. None of them got close enough to the rain to get wet.
In all, the rain was probably a good thing because the woodlands were starting to be dry and outside burning was best not done. Most of the neighboring communities experienced some sort of wild fire during the dry weather.
Bob Brown has been critically ill and he is slowly recovering after being at Central Maine Medical Center and Rumford Hospital.
The Board of Select Persons have scheduled working meetings to help them decide whether or not the Town of Hanover should do winter maintenance along the South Shore Road. It is a mile and a half long dirt road that has never been plowed by the Town during the winter. The first meeting was scheduled for May 14 at 4 p.m. at the Town Office where the topic was expected to be appraisal changes if the Town starts plowing the road. The meetings are open to the public.
The next regularly scheduled Select Persons’ Meeting will be May 21.
Mother's Day was a big success in Hanover with many moms honored for the day. A few of the moms were Donna Worcester, Sara Clark, and Gail Worcester. Some did their own thing, some enjoyed shopping and road trips, and some even got special care for the day. A few were gifted with flowers that were soon planted.
A car/deer crash killed a deer traveling along Route 2 several days ago. Be especially watchful for ticks. Darn bugs. Ask someone who has Lyme disease.
Thanks and best wishes to Polly Davis who has helped us at the Bethel Citizen. Also, best wishes to Tatum Brown as she moves ahead with Bethel news.
