Greg Bennett awoke to the calling of the birds. Lucky us!

   Church trustees are launching a major fundraising campaign to replace its "beyond repair" organ. A reconditioned one has been located and will cost $16,000. More details to follow, but if you can, please mail a check to SUMC, Box 93, STM 08248 to help defray the costs. Regardless of your religious preference, SUMC has been  home to countless concerts, funeral and memorial services, hymn sings and Sunday services.  It's "the town's" church.

   In late fall,  the SIA made a donation of $500.00 to help defray some of the costs of the winter season. Here's hoping you'll  be able to offer financial support, too.

Remember these? If you'd like to register your vehicle as belonging to a "local," a free bumper sticker is avaliable. Email: for details.  Good for security- identifies your vehicle as one that belongs in town, especially during the off season. (@2" high X 3.5" wide)
