Many new people have joined since Septemberfest and other recent events.  Welcome, and thank you for your interest and support. 


There are three immediate and important tasks: 


1.  Most important: we need you, from now until the election, to educate yourself, talk to people and identify people who have committed to voting yes.


Email me, leave a message at 760-6281, or use the web link to enter information at

Voters will NOT be put on any mailing list, they will merely be checked in as a “yes” vote.  If we start to contact uncommitted voters, every YES vote saves that phone call for someone else.  


2.  Mark your calendar to attend and VOTE at the Town Meeting on October 17th at 7PM at the high school.  Tell people about this meeting.


3.  Between September 15th and October 2nd businesses in CT can fill out paperwork to take advantage of a 60% tax credit through the Farmington River Watershed Neighborhood Assistance Act Grant program for businesses.  The FRWA applied for and received this grant for the sole purpose of helping with the acquisition of this property.  This program applies to any business in CT (Sub S, LLC and LLP are ineligible) for donation amounts between $250 and $75,000 during 2006.  This matching grant program is a great way to leverage your donation if you own an eligible business.  Reply with the subject “FRWA grant” and we will send you the forms.
