To The Daily Sun,
I was embarrassed to see in my letter that I had neglected to send out a big "thank you" to our Gilmanton School Board, especially to Mike Hatch and Adam Mini. In the superintendent's office another big "thank you" to Rachel and John for allowing me to send Gilmanton residents and employees there to use their copier and fax machine. We appreciated so much that they set up classrooms for meeting rooms so that scheduled meetings for different boards could continue to take place. Meetings of the selectmen, ZBA, planning, Historic District Commission, etc., which have since been moved to the Old Town Hall auditorium, 1800 Route 140 in Gilmanton Iron Works.
I would also like to extend a very special "thank you" to the School Board, superintendent and to all the teachers and staff for their coordinated efforts to rearrange the March teachers' workshop that was supposed to take place toward the latter part of that month and move it to March 10. They voluntarily did this to make the school gymnasium available for our annual town and school elections, which are usually held in the auditorium of the Academy building. The School Board arranged with the Gilmanton Year Round Library ("thank you" GYRL) for the teachers to use their parking lot so that the school parking lot will be left open for Gilmanton residents so that they may cast their ballot votes on Tuesday, March 10, from 7 a.m. to 7 p.m. The children will not have school that day.
I would also like to thank Officer Gustafson, for your extra efforts on shift to make sure the Academy building and the modular building that are temporarily housing the town offices are secure at night. I, as well as my staff, thank you for being in the area and for checking in on us when we are open in the evenings, the extra sense of security is very much appreciated.
If I have inadvertently forgotten to mention anyone else, I would also like to say a very heartfelt "thank you". The support and caring shown by our community and our surrounding communities has been very heartwarming and so very much appreciated.
