Get out to vote!

Today is town voting day in Westmoreland, as in many other New England communities. Our town votes on Tuesday and holds town meeting Wednesday evening. We have a race for selectman this year and each candidate got a lot of backing from townspeople in the days and weeks before today. It’s a great social occasion, sliding down out of the hills into town, through the mud, which is deepening by the day, to vote at the town hall, maybe buy a raffle ticket for the quilt offered by the Ladie’s Aid, and just chatting before and after voting with friends and neighbors. Top to bottom: Bruce Smith with Evelyn Hunter, Bob Moore, Peter Heed, our moderator and Fran Clapp of Ladie’s Aid.
