Also, Shawsheen Tech appoints a new member of its leadership team
Good Morning, and a Happy Monday to you! I’m hoping this one isn’t quite as foggy as the last. Figuratively speaking, that is.
The second I sent yesterday’s Buzz, I realized I’d forgotten to include our fundraising banner, updated for the week. Rather than send a correction, I wanted to highlight it today and say - YOU ARE ALL ROCK STARS! As of today, we have $75 to donate to People Helping People, and the month isn’t even half over. I’d love to maximize our donation, so if you’re still on the fence, now’s your chance!
The People Helping People Thanksgiving drive is this Saturday at United Church of Christ. Here’s a list of the items they’re looking for:
Coffee, Tea, Cocoa
Liquid Dish Soap
Toiletries (shampoo, hand soap, deodorant)
My family will be there helping out - hope to see you there!

Meetings and Events
The highlight of my day will probably be grabbing that winter catalog and going at it with a pen, finding ways to keep my kids occupied during the Dark Day this winter.
10:00 AM - Town Clerk - Post Processing of Eligible Ballots - The deadline for receipt of mail-in ballots was Saturday, and today is the day the ballots received after the polls closed on Tuesday will be counted and added to our totals.
