From the Town Clerk
September has arrived bringing with it school commencement, cooler weather, apple picking and getting ready for Halloween. I hope everyone enjoys this time of year with family and friends. The Clerk’s Office will be busy with completing the August special election results and preparing for the November Town Meeting.
The results for the special election held on August 30th will be posted on the Town Clerk’s website.
Town meeting date has been set for November 8, 2021. It will be held at the High School auditorium. The warrant is now open and will close on September 24th.
The September 11th - 20-year remembrance will be held, Saturday September 11, 2021 at 11:00am at the Public Safety Complex. No matter how many years go by it’s important that we never forget.
It’s been advertised, but worth mentioning again, on September 18th Seekonk will have its own day. “Celebrate Seekonk (Seaconcke) Day”. It will be held rain, or shine at the Seekonk Library from 11:00am – 4:00pm. The day will celebrate the history, culture and creative spirit of its citizens. There will be food, live music, art, storytelling and plenty of activities for kids and seniors.
The 34th Annual Charity for the Save A Pet Society Auction will be an online event with a little twist this year. Since many businesses had a difficult year, they will not be asking them to donate products or services. Instead, Save A Pet wants to support local businesses, by asking friends, supporters and social media followers to consider purchasing a gift card or item from them and donate it to the auction.
Save A Pet will provide a list of local businesses who donate to their auction. If you provide your name and the business where you purchased your donation, Save A Pet will give you both a shout out on their Facebook page and the online auction! You can go to the Sav A Pet face book page to get more information on this event. It will start this fall.
A friendly reminder that trash bills will be sent out in September and are due in October.
Have wonderful month, stay well and remember the Town Clerk’s office welcomes inquiries from all citizens seeking assistance, or information regarding services provided by the Town of Seekonk.
