Hanover Select Persons met Nov. 16 for their regular monthly meeting. Attending the meeting was Peggy Susbury, librarian for Gardner Roberts Memorial Library who thanked them for the $1,000 donation to the library as approved by the voters at the annual Town Meeting. Bob Susbury also attended the meeting and discussed several topics with the Board. The tax collector reported that most tax bills had been sent out except for a few with addressing problems. Bob Fortin from the Solid Waste and Recycle Committee reported on recent activities and he spoke of investigations into possibly using single-stream recycling.
The date for the annual tree lighting will be Saturday, Dec. 4 at the Town Office starting probably around 6 p.m. Following will be a social gathering with desserts, hot chocolate and, for those who dare, singing. All from the area are invited to attend.
Another windy weekend night shut off the electricity to the Route 2 area west of Hanover Village last Saturday.
Jim and Kent Ray returned safely to Texas -- Jim to Austin and Kent to Houston. In December Jim will undergo several days of testing and observation in an Austin Hospital.
No doubt some noticed that the Welcome to Hanover sign at the western end of Hanover is looking somewhat tattered. The Select Board hired Mark Beaudoin from Brushmarx Custom Lettering to restore and redesign the sign to adequately welcome passing visitors.
The Hanover Town Office will be closed Thursday and Friday this week in observance of Thanksgiving.
Happy Thanksgiving everyone!
