Thank You from the Selectboard

Thank you to the Boards and Committees, Department Heads and Town Employees and Volunteers

This has been an extraordinary year for our Town. Where would we be without the town’s Broadband Network, Shutesbury,net! The fact the fiber network build out was completed in January, 2020, just before the emergency was declared is a blessing we appreciate everyday. Thank you Broadband Committee and MLP members.

From the Recreation Committee:

Community Gardens, Anyone?

Have you always wanted a garden but lack a sunshiny plot? Or maybe you donʼt have the space? Maybe you just donʼt like to garden alone. Or maybe you donʼt relish the thought of hauling the huge stones Shutesbury land is famous for?
