Welcome to my blog as First Selectman. It is my intention to update this on a frequent basis so that residents and/or visitors to our beautiful village can get an idea of what is currently happening from me directly.
To begin, most of you have noticed that we have two new additions to our staff at the Town Transfer station. Our new Coordinator is Tracie Wilson, a long-time resident of Falls Village. She replaced Fred Palmer who had been working for the town for almost 30 years. Our new attendant is Peter Roussis in replacement of Norma Galaise. Norma is moving to Pennsylvania. They are both doing an excellent job and I encourage you to introduce yourself to them when you are next there.
Our tree lighting ceremony is Sunday, December 2 from 5-7 PM. A short, song-filled greeting to the new season followed by Santa and refreshments in the Senior Center. We hope that you will attend. While you wander around the village that night, note the decorations that have been placed on many of the town buildings. This is the kick-off of a new yearly expansion of our holiday celebration in the village, “The Festival of Wreaths”. This is a privately funded project led by Felicia Jones and Pamela Todd. It is their intention to expand this throughout the town in years to come and you’ll hear more about this long before the next holiday season.
