Our new Selectman, Tim Chase, is promoting a great idea ! In a recent note he
"Just because I don't have any thing else to do, I am working on starting a garden club. Actually
I promised some people and myself last fall that I would organize the first get together to find out how much interest there is. I would love to
organize a great community club but I am hoping that there is lots of interest
and help. One of my goals as selectman is to turn Whitefield into a friendly community not just a
town. Other than the eighth grade supper after town meeting do you remember the last time there was a chance for
town folks to get together? I am not promoting bean suppers but if that is what it takes..... so be it.
Enough babble what I am writing for is to let you know where the process is at so you can help get the word out. April 25th at 7:00pm at Uncas Farm meeting room there will be a
presentation by Mark Hutchinson-master gardener with the exchange and also someone from the state federation of garden clubs. I would like to see a more formal
type of club but obviously the nature of the club and whether or not we even have one will be determined by those present. There will be posters and info sheets
available at all public places hope to see you on the 25th thanks,
I am still amazed that we have elected such a creative and energetic
individual as one of our leaders. Now I know how the Czechoslovakians
must have felt when they elected Vaclav Havel, a poet and playwright as their president !
Tim's announcement is :
