First beach facility info session Tuesday

You're invited to come to the first of two 3-hour information sessions on the proposed beach facilities warrant item that will be on the June 6th ballot (along with the town's $25 million 2012 budget).

That's Tuesday, May 24, 2011 at 5:30 p.m. at the beautiful National Wildlife Service Kettle Pond Visitor's Center, 50 Bend Rd, Charlestown.

Tom and I have been talking about the dire need for basic facilties at the two town beaches for a while now and we urge Charlestown voters to approve the issuance of $1.2 million in bonds to make this project happen.

While the proposal doesn't satisfy everyone, it's a constructive approach to a long-neglected community problem.

The alternative is to strike up the band and sing what could become Charlestown's Town Anthem:
