TOWN CLERK PAMELA SHRIMPTON REPORTS that the Special Town Meeting held outside the Town Office due to COVID on 10/19 ran smoothly, thanks to Moderator Lark Thwing and the 17 registered voters who participated. The voters agreed on all seven articles unanimously, from a vocational tuition reduction to joining the Woodlands Partnership Program. The meeting lasted about 16 minutes.
At the conclusion of the meeting, Hussain Hamdan led the group in a moment of silence for Margaret Eggert, who passed away recently. She had been an active and important member of Hawley, working for years as an Election Clerk and active in the Sons & Daughters of Hawley historical group. Margaret’s smiling face and always kind words will be surely missed.
