If these walls could talk
If the hallway leading into the Londonderry Town Hall could talk, it might say there's a lot of history within this community.
As people come in to do their town business, they can pass the building's Hallway of History, with many images on the walls that show Londonderry's rich past and traditions. That includes farms, organizations, landscapes and much more.
Preparing for spring
Gone are the announcements in Derry about winter events, being replaced with signs of spring. Derry's Parks and Recreation Department is now announcing on the sign at MacGregor Park that it's time to sign up for those sporting signs of spring, including baseball, and warmer weather programs.
At a recent Derry Town Council meeting, council Chairman Charlie Foote asked everyone to take a moment to send continued healing wishes to police Officer Kevin Davies as he recovers from injuries suffered last month during a snow motor vehicle incident.
Foote also asked for a moment of silence to honor the memory of Robert Gorham, a lifelong resident of Derry, who passed away last month. Gorham was a founding member of the Derry Rotary Club and proudly did not miss a meeting in 40 years. He was also known as one of the official auctioneers at the annual Rotary club benefit auction for many other community support efforts.
Budget work begins
In Derry, the annual proposed town budget work begins soon, with the fiscal 2022-27 Capital Improvement Plan and budget to be presented to Town Council at its next meeting on April 6.
Derry councilors will review the numbers with workshops scheduled to go over department spending proposals and traditionally approve the budget in May.
