Yearbook Bake Sale

Love to bake?? Want to help out the school yearbook? We will be hosting our annual bake sale on June 5th. Through this event, we strive to raise funds to cover the printing and production of our yearbook – providing each student with a free copy. Are you unable to bake, but still want to help? We are also looking for donations of coffee, cold cuts and sliced bread. Donations can be dropped off at the school the Friday before or we can pick them up on Saturday. Please contact Lisa Noyes (368-2680 or noyes853@aol.com) with questions. Thanks for your support!

The Fifth Annual Tour de Heifer Dirt Road rides are set for Sunday, June 5th, 2016.  The Tour de Heifer is a group of three bike rides, with the 30 and 60 mile routes drawing more experienced riders and the 15 mile route drawing less experienced riders. We expect to see 300 riders spread out over the three rides. Both the 60 mile and 30 mile routes go through Halifax. The 60 mile route comes west on Jacksonville Stage road, goes north on Josh Road (including the class 4 section), takes a left up Deer Park Road (a long climb), a right on Old County Road to Whitneyville, and then onto Brook Road and Reed Hill Road in West Halifax. Eventually the riders come back into Halifax on Butterfield Road and Green River, then going north on Moss Hollow. The 30 mile route goes up Green River Road and then north on Moss Hollow. There will be a water stop at the corner of Green River Road and Moss Hollow Road.

If you would be interested in serving the Town of Halifax as
Windham Regional Commission Representative, please submit a

This is a one-year appointed position.

Commissioners represent their Town on the Windham Regional Commission, and advise WRC on decisions and actions that may affect their Town and other municipalities in the region. They attend full Commission meetings every other month, where they interact with colleagues from other towns, participate in discussions, and hear presentations on a variety of topics. Commissioners also serve on two or more committees. They do not make decisions on behalf of the Town, but act as liaison between the Town and WRC, relaying pertinent information between Town officials and the Regional Commission and assisting the Town in accessing information and securing grant funding.

VOLUNTEERS NEEDED

The Halifax Selectboard is in search of new members for the Broadband Committee.
Over the past five years committee members have assisted in acquiring the grants
which brought fiber optics to the Halifax school, established the WiFi hot spot
at the Town Garage, and set up the town web site. They have also expanded their
focus to include cellular coverage and economic development.

The current committee members are now retiring; if the Broadband Committee
is to remain active new volunteers are needed.

If you have an interest in seeing the Committee continue, and would be
willing to serve, please contact any Selectboard member, or call/email
Robbin Gabriel, 802-368-2590; halifaxsecretary@gmail.com.
