Happy New Year and welcome to 2016! I hope everyone had a nice holiday break. I know I did! But it wasn’t all play, I did get some work done on some long overdue projects, including activating The Stow Independent Facebook page. It’s nice to be able to just send out a quick message or point people to a new article on the website. Please “Like” the page to get updates on your newsfeed.
Speaking of new articles on the website, if you missed it, the Dec. 23 School Committee meeting article is posted at www.stowindependent.com, along with the winner of our “Meet James Montgomery” contest. See a photo of the winner with James on page 7.
I had met James way back in the mid-’80s when the band I was in opened for his band in Boston (anyone remember Bunratty’s??). He was a really nice guy, not full of himself like some, and, according to our winner, he’s just as nice still.
Next week, look for a full town distribution of another Special Town Meeting warrant. See Ann’s article for more information on the reason for the meeting.
