I was completely wrong last week about having 8-12” of snow to gaze upon with the newly bestowed hour of light at the end of the day. It was closer to 2 feet in Lunenburg; 21” I’ve heard. Thankfully, much of it has already melted and I’m crossing fingers and knocking on all things wood that that is the last of the snow for the season.

Congratulations to the Nashoba Girls Basketball team. They are the first girls basketball team to bring home the Division trophy and are now on to the State Finals. Best of luck!

And heartfelt congratulations to the Nashoba Chieftains Special Olympics team on their Gold Medal win last weekend! What a great testament to their hard work, dedicated coaching, and winning spirit.

With Spring comes Annual Town Election and Town Meeting. Nomination papers are now available in the Town Clerk’s office for open positions on various boards and committees. Stay tuned for a listing of those positions.

The timing of Elections and Meetings will be a bit different this year with the State Primary and Election for John Kerry’s senate seat. The Town Election to fill the open positions on town boards will take place on April 30th, along with the State Primary. Town Meeting will be held on May 6th. Another Town Election will be held in conjunction with the State Senate Election on June 25th, with a ballot for Town Warrant articles. We’ll have more information in the upcoming weeks.
