The upcoming Select Board meeting to take place on 2/20 will provide an opportunity to learn more about the need for updated fire equipment, so hopefully folks will attend and hear what is said. Also, please note that there will a School Board presentation from 6 to 6:30. As most folks are aware, there are proposals for significant upgrades at the Middle and High School in Woodstock. It will be important to obtain accurate information and to see what the financial repercussions might be. Go to the Town website to find the Zoom information if you prefer that option.
