New Milford's bicentennial celebration, slated for only 10 months from now, is planned to be a grandiose affair. Ken Bondurant spoke at the November 19 New Milford Township meeting about the planning of the event. With the assistance of a $2,500 grant from the Tourism Bureau, a three-day celebration is in the works, with church sponsored meals, vendors, etc. A new book, chronicling town history from 1959 on, is planned to take over where the famed Blue Book left off. The old book, it is hoped, will remain on the scene in DVD form. Mr. Bondurant emphasized that assistance and volunteers are being sought. If anyone has old historic documents or pictures, he said, they would be appreciated. Arrangements have been made with a local business so documents can be scanned while a person waits, and then taken home again. Not only are persons with historical knowledge and documentation being sought, so are volunteers for the committees and activities. Anyone with the desire to assist may call Mr. Bondurant at 465-7527 or Linda Baroni at 465-2712. (Phone numbers released with permission.)
The November 18 Elk Lake and SCCTC school board meetings opened with a presentation by two students who, incidentally, were present to speak about school board meetings. Cody Bennett and Catelynn Chambers attended the PSBA conference this year as student delegates, and then visited the board meeting to describe their experience and thank the board. The three-day conference, according to the two, was composed of two main parts – a spiritual, uplifting component and a component revolving around learning how boards work. The students were divided into committees which took a position on a particular issue, and then presented their case on that issue at a mock board meeting. Cody explained his experience arguing against cell phone usage at school; the board members asked with interest what his group’s proposal had been. The students were very positive overall about the experience.
