Parking on Easter Sunday – Please help!! 

If you are physically able, please park in the Town Building Lot. You may drop off people or paraphernalia and then proceed to the parking lot. This will free up parking spots for visitors, the handicapped, our older population and those with young infants and toddlers.  This is a practical way for us to show hospitality. Plan a few extra minutes, so you can park in the town building lot (or on the side streets) and walk in.  Please do not park along the sides of the driveway, as these areas are fire lanes and must be kept clear.
