Thanksgiving Pie Sale – 11/25/20

Walpole Graduation – 6/4/20

The Walpole 8th grade graduation is this Thursday, June 4th at 6:30. It is being held at the WES soccer fields.  Sam Jacobs would like to have a parade afterwards around town to celebrate the graduates. The fire and police departments on board to lead the parade. It would be great to get community members to stand outside too  congratulate the graduates. Only immediate family is allowed to attend the graduation ceremony so this would be our chance to show these young people that we are proud of them.
The exact timing if the parade is uncertain because it depends on the length of the ceremony but it should be around 7:30 or 7:45.  After all, parades seldom seem to begin on time!
For your information, here is the parade route.

Friends of the Library Plant Sale

When I checked with Jana Sellarole, she explained that plants could be dropped off anytime but please label them.  I did that and at the same time I picked up a couple of books!  When gardening tires me out I can sit and read.  Sounds good, doesn’t it? – Lil

Withdrawal Informtaiin Meetings

Clarion Deadline – 2/21/20

It is time – one week to go for the deadline for the next issue of THE WALPOLE CLARION – March 2020. I have already many submissions. Last evening I spent over two and a half hours at public hearings, and will be writing and have asked for articles leading into Town Meeting time on the Proposed Charlestown Withdrawal (NO), Broadband (YES), Warrant Articles (YES), Plastic Bag Ban (YES – may be enacted once the State passes regulations). I max out at twenty-four pages for postal regulations, so get your submissions (and advertisements) in to be included. This will be a well-read issue. Thank you, yours, RAY
