Memorial Day

On Friday, students from Croydon Village School and kindergarten participated in the Annual Memorial Day Parade to the East Village Cemetery. The students paused at the bridge to throw a wreath in the river for veterans lost at sea and then continued their walk down Cash Street to the East Village Cemetery. Bert Smith assisted the students with placing flags on the veteran's graves.  

Bert Smith decorated the graves of veterans in the Four Corners, Croydon Flat, and Pinnacle Cemeteries.

A big thank-you to the Croydon Board of Selectman for the flags along Rt. 10. It is nice to see our town commemorating Memorial Day.

 

High Speed Internet Update

Bill Thompson met with the Selectboard to discuss internet access available through his company IAMNOW.NET to Croydon residents. Mr. Thompson stated that the service could serve residents on sections of route 10 (line of sight). His company most likely would not serve side streets. Mr. Thompson quoted a rough estimate of $60.00 per month for service. The Selectboard is reviewing his information.

Two Caught Performing Random Act of Community Service

Mark Archambault and his step son Brad Hooper are responsible for the random act of Community Service.  On Sunday, Mark and Brad were seen mowing the grass on the turn-in  at Croydon Flat.  The area is often neglected and the fresh mowed grass is a welcome sight. Mark and Brad brought the mowers down from their home on Fletcher Road. Thanks for the random act of  Community Service.
