Gardner Roberts Memorial Library remains open at the Library on Wednesday unless it is a no-school storm day. The Book Bakery continues providing sweets and will add some hot dishes during the cold weather. Last Wednesday the menu was corn chowder and future weeks will have other chowders, baked beans or just be surprised some week. Mmmm, good! New books for children include: “Who Will Plant a Tree” by Jerry Pallotta and “A Sick Day for Amos McGee” by Philip Stead. A new youth book is “First Step 2 Forever” by Justin Bieber. Adult books include: “Little Princess” by Conan Grennan, “Lake of Dreams” by Kim Edwards and "Battle Hymn of the Tiger Mom” by Amy Chau.
The Library Bees continue to meet on Tuesday afternoons, all are invited. Bring crafts, new project, unfinished projects, and ideas for the library, recipes, etc.; it is a great time for visiting. They have nearly completed the quilt that will be raffled at the Fall Festival and is expected to be a five-star project. Thanks to all who have assisted with contributions including the bottle drive.
Just like a post office, sometimes wanted posters appear on the walls of the Hanover Town Office. The most recently wanted individual was Kelly. It seems she “borrowed” a friend's dog and the owner wants it back. We might just know where Kelly can be found. Should we turn her in for the reward?
Last week three friends made an appearance in court for the purpose of changing their name. The court was agreeable; therefore in the future the trio will be known as Keith, Victoria and Kory Crockett-Harrington which honors the families of their father and mother. Following the court session they enjoyed a meal at the “Tin Bucket.”
Have you noticed all the snow around? The Hanover Emergency Management Department has issued a heavy snow warning for building roofs and bridges in the area. If your buildings have not been checked for snow accumulation it should be done as soon as possible. Use caution if climbing upon a roof as your weight and movement could trigger a collapse. Heavy ice build-up on the eaves of heated homes can cause water to back up and do considerable damage inside buildings.
Too late. Warnings went out before Jan. 31. Most folks came to the Hanover Town Office to license their dogs. A few didn’t. Now there is a $25 late fee in addition to the regular fee. If you do not license your dog before March 1 the Animal Control Officer will call on you. If a visit to court is indicated the cost could be considerable.
