A few tips for those attending Town Meeting – Monday June 29, 2020 – 11:00 AM at Nora Searle Field

The Moderator will run through this abbreviated Town Meeting as concisely as possible, but a few items may make it more comfortable for you:

  • We will only have one line checking in, with appropriate social distancing as you wait, so you may want to come a little early to be checked in.
  • We are requesting that all attendees wear a mask, put on when you exit your car, and kept on until you are back in your car.
  • Apply sunscreen before you come, so you don’t get sunburned.
  • Bring a bottle of water!
  • A hat (we are out in the open, not under a tent!)
  • The Blue Book (we will provide if needed)
  • A rain jacket or umbrella (because you never know…)
