Sharon

SHARON — Minor adjustments to Sharon town ordinances were approved at a sparsely attended town meeting held on Friday, Aug. 23. Voting was unanimously in favor of the wording changes.

Approved was a change in the regulations to allow for posting the annual proposed budget on the town’s website, thereby reducing, but not eliminating, a requirement for hard-copy printing. 

As a result, proposed budgets will be able to be accessed on the website at least five days before the annual budget town meeting. The decision will allow the town to print fewer paper...

SHARON — The crowd was smaller than normal for this year’s Memorial Day celebration and parade, probably because of the storm that thundered through the region at daybreak. But the number of people old and young who took part in the parade and then gathered at the war memorial on Monday morning was still substantial.

patricks@lakevillejournal.com

SHARON — The little boy went around the room asking everyone, child and adult, if they like spaghetti.
With considerable concentration, he noted each person’s answer with a hash mark under a smiley face (for yes) or a frowning face (for no).
The exercise involved interacting with others, basic mathematics and following directions — all challenges for the children in the Region One special education program run by Karen Ianucci at Sharon Center School.
Seven staffers work with 19 students who in terms of chronological age would be in grades pre-kindergarten through eight.

Learning to care for baby birds

Sharon Audubon’s resident crow, Princess, introduced the workshop by making as much noise as she could.
“She’s confused because there’s a room full of people not paying attention to her,” said Sarah Conley, an Audubon intern.

Remembering Sharon’s veterans

SHARON — Memorial Day celebrations have always been important to the town of Sharon, and First Selectman Robert Loucks can attest to that. Loucks grew up in Sharon, marching in the annual Memorial Day parade as a drummer in the Sharon Center School band. Now, a U.S. Navy veteran, Loucks helps organize the day of remembrance. “It’s an important event that people need to be reminded of,” he said. “You know, freedom is not free.” Though towns across the country remember veterans once a year, it is memorials such as the Sharon Veterans Memorial that create a daily reminder.

Dry weather at Trade Secrets — at least for a day

cynthiah@lakevillejournal.com

SHARON — From a purely functional point of view, this might have been the best Trade Secrets ever.
The annual rare plant/garden antiques sale and garden tour to benefit Women’s Support Services in Sharon is now in its 11th year. Its maturity showed in the impressive level of organization and the ease with which everything happened, from vendors setting up their booths and wares to food sales and preparation in the indoor cafe (run again this year by The Farmer’s Wife in Ancramdale).
