I just got back from town meeting day! In my little town we still meet in the old town hall, vote from the floor on the town officers and budget, discuss changes and upcoming events, and handle town politics face to face with our neighbors. I think it’s pretty cool. Although even in a small town like mine we don’t have as much attendance as we probably should or could, at least I feel like those who show up really care.
Nothing really controversial was decided, or even discussed. Well, except that proposed round-about at the intersection of our town and another… That might say something about small town life, that the proposed round-about was our biggest discussion (and it’s not even technically in our town)
But there was a lady behind me knitting what was either a sleeve or a scarf with colorwork on the trim. It was very pretty, but she left before I could ask her what she was working on…
Now I’m going to take the rest of my day to catch up on some deadline projects!
