School Board Representative and Special Selectmen's Meeting

Although it has taken several months and has involved some very interesting legal issues, we are very happy to report that Gary Backstrom has agreed to accept the appointment as the Sharon representative to the School Board. 

Gary has had a chance to discuss the duties and responsibilities of the position--as well as the time commitment--with several past School Board representatives from Sharon.  He also spent quite a bit of time talking with one of the current Board members.  In other words, he comes to the position with a good understanding of the commitment he is making. 

We have verified with Town Counsel that it is the Selectmen who make the appointment and also administer the Oath of Office.  So, to that end, the Sharon Selectmen will hold a special meeting at 5:30 PM on Tuesday, June 3, 2014.  The single item on the agenda will be the appointment of Gary to the School Board position.  The appointment early in the evening will allow Gary to attend the School Board meeting later that night as a full member of the Board.

With our sincere thanks to Gary for his willingness to serve our town and the community at large in this very important position.

Selectmen - Summer Meetings

Continuing with past tradition, the Sharon Board of Selectmen will meet one time per month in June, July and August.  The Selectmen will meet on the following dates in 2014:
  • June 17
  • July 15 (see note, below)
  • August 19
 The June and August meetings will be held at the Sharon Meeting House.  However, in Sharon's own version of "throwback" events, the July meeting will be held in our historic Brick School House. 

Please look for more details to come, but start planning now to join the Selectmen on July 15 for what could be a very interesting and fun meeting (we are certain you will enjoy sitting in those small, uncomfortable desks!).

Archive Committee Meeting

At their meeting on April 15, 2014 the Sharon Selectmen met with many of the volunteers who have been helping organize the Town archive materials (the archive room is in the basement of the Meeting House). 

The following people participated in the discussion:  Marc LaPlante, Linda Paris, Carl Newton, Mitch Call, Ken Callahan, Robert Hauser, Ann Carpenter, Anne Booth, Jack Ogren, Mary Ellen Bushnell, and Rick Lusky.

This group has been working diligently to organize and catalog the Town's many documents and papers that have been collected over the years; this is a tremendous service to the Town.  As part of the discussion, the Selectmen agreed to appoint a formal committee to oversee the archive effort.  The committee.

The first meeting of the newly formed Archive Committee will be held at 5:30 PM on Thursday, May 8, 2014 at the Meeting House.  The meeting is open to all who are interested.
