The Selectmen met with interested citizens and John Mahoney last week to begin the process of updating our Comprehensive Plan which has recently expired. The last plan was done in 1992 and a current plan is necessary for the writing of grants among other things. Since there were only two people from town interested in this process, the board is looking for others to help plan the future of the town.
The Andover Food Pantry is in need of volunteers to help on Tuesday mornings between 8:30 and 10 a.m. The pantry people are also looking for people willing to help unload food deliveries. There is usually a one to two day notice of the arrival of new supplies. The months of November and December are busy times when food baskets are prepared for local people in need and the children’s Santa program is in effect. If you are interested in helping out, please call Linda Couture at 364-7938.
Hunting season is upon us is successive waves of turkey, bear, moose, deer, rabbit and of course birds. As people come to “camp” they are looking for places to eat after a tough day of trekking through the woods. One opportunity will be on Saturday, Oct. 12, when Mills’ Market will be having a special meal labeled “Hunter’s Supper” with a roasted pig, baked beans, coleslaw, rolls and desserts. The cost is $8 for adults and $6 for children under 12. Our Main Street businesses depend on the influx of people for hunting season. That includes The Little Red Hen Restaurant and Bakery. Some people forget the bakery part and they take special orders especially for Thanksgiving pies. You can hardly forget their phone number 392-cake.
