On behalf of the Town Board I would like to wish everyone a Happy and Healthy Thanksgiving. Hopefully you can enjoy time with family and friends in celebration of all that is good about this great land we call home. Thank you also to the service organizations, Veterans’ Groups and those individual citizens who will lend a helping hand to those in need this year. Your generosity and kindness is a testimony to what makes Americans unique in this world. Happy Thanksgiving to all!
Tis the Season!

Shopping local can make or break many of our small business owners. All of our businesses in our Villages, hamlets and Town rely on the next five weeks for a large portion of their revenues; so please, before you head out of Town try to fill your list here where you live. Everyone benefits!
